Do you ever have a recipe you posted back in the day which never received the credit it deserved? I do. I have a fair few recipes I’d love to reshoot and refresh but the most significant one would be this- My 3 Minute Grain Free Microwave English Muffin

Healthy 3 Minute Microwave English Muffin made with NO flour, NO oil, NO butter and comes with a tested oven option! {vegan, gluten free, paleo recipe}- thebigmansworld.comThis has been my ‘go to’ snack for ages and I’ve tried out different variations and different methods to it and have come up with three different variations to suit most diets out there!

The original version is gluten free and high protein.

The second version is Paleo friendly.

The final version is for my vegan friends out there.

My favourite way is without the out the original way because it is the most accurate in taste and texture to a standard English Muffin. I know peanut flour isn’t readily available to many, so there is the Paleo friendly version which is more dense, but toasts really well too. The Vegan version is abit tricky and doesn’t come out the most visually appealing way but at the end of the day- is still damn delicious

Ingredients

For the original version

  • 2 T peanut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 T canned unsweetened pumpkin
  • 1 large egg can substitute for 2 large egg whites
  • 1-2 T liquid of choice I used milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea salt
  • Sugar/sweetener of choice optional, for a sweet version
  • Gluten free flour for dusting (optional)

For the Paleo option

  • 2 T almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 T canned unsweetened pumpkin
  • 1 Large egg or 2 egg whites
  • 1-2 T liquid of choice I used almond milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea Salt
  • Sugar/sweetener of choice Optional, for a sweet version

For the Vegan option

Instructions

  • Spray a microwave safe cereal bowl with cooking spray and add the peanut flour and baking powder and mix until combined
  • Add the canned pumpkin and 2 egg whites or 1 egg and mix very well until all ingredients are fully incorporated. Add the milk/liquid of choice.
  • Add the cinnamon and sea salt and put into the microwave for 2-4 minutes, depending on the power
  • Remove from the microwave and dust either side generously with flour. Allow to cool, slice in half and pop in a toaster. Top as you would an English muffin

For the oven option

  • Follow as above, but preheat an oven to 350 Fahrenheit and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a tooth pick comes out clean. Mine usually takes 12 minutes, and I grease the bowl very well to easily slip out.

Notes

Keep a good eye on the microwave- cooking this for too long will result in a drier muffin
For the Paleo and Vegan versions, follow directions as listed but with necessary ingredient amendments
These can be made in batches and frozen for up to 4 weeks

  1. I know it might be annoying when readers ask for substitutions but would it be possible to substitute the peanut flour? It’s not available anywhere near me and I can’t justify ordering it online ..

  2. Thanks for sharing several versions! So, the paleo one is without egg? What do we poor folks do who don’t have canned pumpkin in the stores like the crazy Americans?? Apple sauce? But it would make the muffin rather sweet. I guess I just have to give it a try. (And no, I won’t roast my own pumpkin and puree it!)
    Have a nice Sunday (evening, lol)!

        1. I had great success using baked sweet potato, same proportion of course as pumpkin using the paleo version. Love it!

        2. Great idea! I was reading through comments to see if anyone subbed the pumpkin for something else. I’m on this elimination diet trying to not eat eggs – squash is also on my list so the pumpkin doesn’t work either. Sweet potato is fair game though and one of my favorite foods!! Glad to hear it worked!

      1. I haven’t been this excited over trying a recipe in a while …btw thanks for the options your amazing

        One Crazy American 😉

      2. Just made a combo of the paleo and vegan versions. I used flax seed meal (Bob’s Red Mill) in place of the egg. I used PB2 powdered peanut butter as it’s what I had on hand and essentially is peanut flour. It came out delicious! A lil flatter given no egg in the batter (I scrambled it for breakfast) but it was soft and fluffy and toasted well.

        Do you have the nutritional fact info so I can plug it into my LoseIt tracker app? Trying to watch my carb/oil/sodium/sugar intake on doctor’s order.

        Thanks again for this fantastic recipe!

      3. So Grateful for All options for All diets..i love squash but I just want a straight up English muffin what can I use instead for the Paleo recipe?

    1. I cannot wait to try these! The normal microwave bread recipes I find lacking somehow. Using pumpkin sounds interesting! I have marked so many of your recipes to try – just found your blog and you have some great and unique ideas!

    2. Sorry, Ann! You are amazing- I forgot to mention the egg- it’s been edited!

      I’ve tried it with apple sauce and it actually isn’t sweet- just add a dash of sea salt. If you have a starchy baby food that could work too (I once tried a broccoli and carrot one- it turned it green though)

    3. Hey for the aussies out there trying this recipe, you can use cauliflower purée ….which is left over cauliflower mash (paleo Friendly) instead of canned pumpkin our American friends use

  3. Love that you made so many versions of this gem! I need to try the Paelo friendly one.
    I have so MANY recipes which should be reposted. Even the recaps I made with recipes were posted too long ago.
    I made Microwave popcorn and burnt down the microwave. I guess you know the rest of the story 🙂

  4. These look so perfect – exactly like store bought English muffins! Guess I’ll have to make the Paleo version though since the original is made with peanut flour. This may be the first time I ever eat something labelled as “Paleo” lol.

  5. I love that you have 3 different options–that’s awesome! I have quite a few recipes that I’d like to reshoot… I did a remake of one of them yesterday actually! I don’t know if I want to redo all of them though…. I definitely like the idea of looking back on old recipes and seeing how far I’ve come (corny).

  6. I can’t believe this comes out of the microwave — it looks so good! And can you believe that I don’t even remember the last time I used my microwave? I grew up without one so I never really got used to it — now it just stores my extra pots and pans 😆 I’d take em out to whip up one of these though!

  7. Only narrow-minded people judge from appearances ;). Even if it was all kinds of crummy-looking I’d reserve a spot in my heart for a little vegan English muffin. Just one more issue: we don’t get canned pumpkin over here. What would be a good sub? Please say there is one or I’ll go and cry because I’ve never eaten an English muffin and that way might never do. Or at least no homemade.

      1. Savoury baby food? What exactly would that be? I know that might be an odd question but the savoury baby food I’ve seen in stores before was more like pureed lasagna or risotto. And I’m sure that’s not what you had in mind 😉 .
