Oh Sunday. I don’t mind you today. Why? It’s a long weekend here in Sydney! 

Ever since I posted my microwave English Muffin recipe last week, I’ve been overwhelmed with how many of you guys tried it out already- as someone who develops recipes with the hope others enjoy them as much as I do- this really means the world.

One English Muffin I first tried before the vegan and paleo versions was a Cinnamon Raisin English muffin– based off my 5 minute cinnamon raisin flat bread! I remember the day I tried it out because strangely, we were discussing ‘man caves’ and what either of us would consider necessary as bachelors in our own ‘pads’. There is a stigma that lads living alone tend to live in junk and rubbish. Wrong.

Who said that ‘man caves’ can’t be cool, functional and stylish? The number of single men who opt to live alone is constantly increasing throughout Australia, especially in urban areas. Single men have a vast array of options available when it comes to turning their kitchens into fun and practical spaces regardless of their size. If you live on your own and your living space is limited, check out this epic find which I’m dead keen on….

Integrated washing machines

Every man needs a washing machine (yes, we really do). I may have been forgiven for putting off the decision to buy one due to the large amount of space that these bulky appliances take up. Instead,I’ve considered with an integrated washer dryer. There are some great free-standing models out there that have been designed to save space, money, and can help cut down on energy bills. I was stunned to find that if you go for an eco-friendly model, as these can reduce water use by 58% and energy bills by 22%. GEE-BUZZ.

Guys, I’m sold. Well, until I save up enough dough for it. Until then- I have this microwave Cinnamon raisin English muffin which we toasted our future man caves with.

Ingredients
  1. 2 T almond flour
  2. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  3. 2 T unsweetened applesauce (can sub for canned pumpkin)
  4. 1 large egg or 2 egg whites (For vegan option, use 1 flax egg)
  5. 1-3 T liquid of choice (I used almond milk)
  6. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  7. Sea salt
  8. 1-2 T raisins
  9. Almond flour/meal, for dusting (optional)
Instructions
  1. Spray a microwave safe cereal bowl with cooking spray and add the almond flour and baking powder and mix until combined
  2. Add the unsweetened applesauce, egg/flax egg and liquid of choice* and mix very well until all ingredients are fully incorporated
  3. Add the cinnamon and sea salt. Stir through the raisins and put into the microwave for 2-4 minutes, depending on the power
  4. Remove from the microwave and dust either side generously with almond meal. Allow to cool, slice in half and pop in a toaster. Dust again with almond meal and top as you would an English muffin
Notes
  1. Use 1 T of liquid at a time until it reaches a batter like consistency- it really is dependant on the kind of almond flour being used
  2. Allow to cool completely before slicing, otherwise you will end up with an uneven muffin
  3. These muffins are not very sweet- add some coconut sugar if you want a sweeter muffin
  4. You can sub the 3 T almond flour for 1 T coconut flour but the texture is very difficult to replicate

Please note- The key to making these (or the original microwave English muffin) look genuine is to go overboard like I did and dust them in gluten free flour pre and post toasting (gluten free original version) or blanched almond flour (paleo version of both). The things you do to make it look like the real deal…

  1. Oh wow, thanks for the feature!! (Even though my name is linked to your instagram page 😉 )
    Is this washer both for clothes and dishes?? That’d be weird. I think I got it wrong 😀
    I’ve never had a cinnamon raisin muffin but I think it must be really good with butter and honey! Or nut butter!
    Have a nice Sunday! I’m flying to LA in a few hours 🙂

  2. That’s really awesome. They look great.

    My woman cave is our downstairs office with the TV. Tim likes the garage so that is his man cave if you will.

  3. Haha so that’s what I call win win! Lucky recipe creator and lucky recipe makers. And I didn’t realize before how burnt mine came out of the toaster 😉
    Cinnamon raisin sounds lovely. I see me adding some almond butter and figs to it! And a cup of coffee. Or maybe even better just butter it a bit 🙂

  4. haha you really are like my husband. He is possessed with finding the right washer and dryer, eco friendly. ANd plus he loves english muffins (crumpets) with vegemite.. or nutella, or this. MUST TRY!

  5. Cinnamon raisin is the best! I remember I always loved going to my grandma and grandpa’s house as a kid so that I could have cinnamon raisin toast and Dunkaroos and Corn Pops… aka all the junk my parents would never buy me lol.

  6. Love the integrated washer/dryer idea…wow! Need this in my life but can’t afford it alas.

    Gosh, I just love english muffins and need those in my life too NOW (: I think buttery spreads are all they need to fill those nooks and crannies and savor their “essence” but really anything is good on one anyway.

  7. I became very excited when I read the title of your post. I am in the pro cinnamon raisin camp. Cinnamon raisin bread, cinnamon raisin english muffins, cinnamon raisin bagels, you name it, I love it! Looking forward to devoting these. I plan on topping them with almond butter. Oh, yeah!

    Forget the cave, I’ll just take the man. 🙂

  8. Want want want. I have a microwave and cinnamon, and I could snag some raisins from the dining hall, but I still need flour and..space. Or you could frisbee the English muffins to me.
    Girl cave must have lots of pillows, a blender, and a fridge. That’s all it takes. Oh, and wifi!

  9. The washer and dryer I have came with the house and I think is a bazillion years old- wait, I am exaggerating, its more like a gazillion years old – I had no idea there were integrated washer/dryers on the market!!! Iam mesmerized!! Wow – technology!!!
    Also mesmerizing is your microwave prowess – fabulous take on your original!

  10. So, I totally made your GF english muffin and loved it! I have a conventional toaster (not a toaster oven) so I don’t think it toasted enough… or maybe I was so excited I didn’t leave it in long enough… but can’t wait to try this one now, too!

  11. A washer-dryer combination that’s eco-friendly, too?? I didn’t even knew these existed in general and while I’ve never owned a dryer before – considering it a luxury and surefire way to make my engery bills exploed – I’d honestly be SO glad to have one now. And one of those English muffins on the side while waiting for my laundry to dry.

  12. It. Was. Crunchy. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I am in HEAVEN! Thank you for the recipe – I have been missing my english muffins, I am so thankful to have found your recipe. Eating clean and getting my english muffin, too. PERFECT DAY 🙂

  13. These look awesome! I’m confused about the recipe though, in your notes you mention possibly adding less liquid depending on the type of coconut flour… But your recipe does not include coconut Flour…

  14. Sounds yummy yummy yummy!!! Is there a way to do this with-out a microwave? We don’t have one. 🙂 Oh, and how do they store? Can you make a few and freeze them, then pop them in the toaster when you want? mmmmm…..Sounds so good.

    1. Hey Jessica! I definitely make them in batches and just thaw out and toast so go for it! Without a microwave, I have made my original version in the oven- I make 4 times the amount in a loaf pan and cook at 180 degrees for 20 minutes or so! 🙂

  15. I just made this and it turned out th ebeith! I wanted to know if it can be doubled or triple with success so I can make a batch and only measure ingredients once and then freeze them? Thank you!

  16. Wonderful! One needs to understand that Paleo bread products are going to be “eggy” and this muffin does need to be toasted. But, oh my goodness…..I had to wash my hands from dripping butter and honey I topped mine with! Hubby will be so happy.

  17. Is there a way to make a big batch of these and store them somehow??? I am in love. After finding out I’m lactose and gluten intolerant I had to give up my daily breakfast of an English muffin. These are delicious though. So happy. This is the first recipe that has worked for me. I used The recipe in the comments about using oat flour and one egg white because I make my own oat flour. Thank you

  18. I was so excited when I saw the description that it was gluten free and vegan. My heart sank when reading the recipe and see that it is not at all vegan since it contains egg. Have you ever tried it with any type of egg replacer? Just using egg whites doesn’t make it vegan 🙁

  19. Thank you for satisfying my craving for a cinnamon raisin muffin for one! This recipe is awesome and a win win being paleo.

  20. I have visited your site before but this is the first recipe that I’ve tried. My muffin didn’t look anything like yours but it was very delicious. I was wondering what should the consistency of the mixture be after I have mixed everything together? Mine was very wet so when I microwaved it for 3 minutes it was soft to the touch on top and doughy on the bottom. I cooked it for an additional minute and the bottom firmed up a bit. I will definitely try the recipe again but just wondered what I did wrong.

    Thank you

  21. I could not find the oven option. If its in this post, I could not find it. Also I would like to make more then one at a time, I know I could multiply the ingredients for the number I would like to make, but I have found sometimes that does not work too well. Thanks, I love your post and think your recipes are great.

  22. I made these a few minutes ago and the tasted awesome!!! They didn’t look as good as yours but the taste took my cravings of bread away!! Thank you….is there an oven version?

  23. These are good. I made one a little bit ago and enjoyed but forgot to make again. Just remembered I had the recipe today. I went to make but realized I was out of apple sauce and didn’t want to open a can of pumpkin so I tried using mashed banana instead. It was great!
