What is a keto English muffin recipe?
Keto English muffins also known as low-carb English muffins are made with low-carb flour, eggs and healthy fat. The best way to bake them is in 90 seconds in the microwave but you can also bake the recipe in a oven ramekin at 180C for 10 minutes. They are delicious crispy English muffins to fix a bread craving on a keto diet while staying in ketosis.
A 6-ingredient keto recipe
This low carb English muffin recipe is a a very easy 1-bowl recipe using only 6 ingredients. All you need to make these are:
Almond flour – I recommend unblanched ultra fine almond flour but almond meal will work too
Coconut flour – the combo of both flours adds a heavier bread texture similar to regular English muffins. Don’t replace coconut flour by more almond flour or the texture won’t be as good
Oil – coconut oil, light olive oil, almond oil, all those options works really well. You can also use melted butter but the flavor will be closer to muffins than English muffins.
Also, you have two ways to flavor your keto English muffins depending on what you crave for, sweet or savory.
Sweet English muffins – add sugar-free crystal sweetener like erythritol and cinnamon
For a savory version of this bread – add garlic powder and salt – for the savory tooth
How to make crispy low-carb English muffins?
While it is an easy recipe, there are two important steps to make crispy keto English muffins in the microwave. First, bake the bread in the microwave on high for 90 seconds. Then, slice the bread in half and toast on bagel mode for 1-2 minutes or until golden and crispy. You can also fry the English muffins in a cast iron skillet with butter or coconut oil. Finally, serve with cream cheese, sugar-free chia seed jam,fresh keto fruits or any savory toppings you love.

Best ways to serve English muffins
You can use those keto English muffins as simple toast, served with cream cheese, butter or sugar free chia seed jam. Otherwise you can use this English muffin as a keto sanwich base. They are delicious filled with fried egg, bacon and avocado.
Does it taste eggy?
Nobody like eggy flavor in breads especially on keto diet as we eat a lot of eggs already during the day. So good news, those microwave keto bread doesn’t taste eggy at all! The secret to hide the egg flavor is to use the suggested spices – sweet or savory option, see recipe below. Plus, toasting the English muffin absolutely brings out the bread flavor without leaving any egg smell or taste.

In a small mixing bowl, add almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder.
Stir in beaten egg and melted coconut oil.
Stir in the sweet or savory spices, depending on what you are craving for.
Pour the batter into a round microwave safe ramekin or mug, mine is 11 cm diameter (4 inches)
Microwave on high for 90 seconds or until the bread is soft and cooked in the center.
Carefully upside down the bread on a plate (it is hot, don't burn yourself!). Slice the bread in half. Set aside on the plate for 30 seconds, to slightly cool the bread slices and let the moisture evaporate.
Bring the slices into a toaster. If you have a bagel mode use it, this way it will crisp only one side of the english muffin slices. This will reproduce a very similar texture to regular store bought english muffin. The longer you toast it the crispier it will be, adjust to taste.
If you don't have a toaster, melt 1/2 tablespoon butter or coconut oil in a skillet.
Bring the English muffin slices into the skillet and fry 1-2 minutes on both sides until crispy.
Serve with toppings of your choice like cream cheese, whipped butter, sugar-free chia seed jam.
You can microwave the bread the day before, store in the pantry on a plate covered with film wrap.
Pan fry or toast just before serving.
You can bake this English muffin at 180C for 8-12 minutes in a oven safe ramekin.
