Are English Muffins Keto?
Did you ask yourself if English muffins are keto-friendly?
Unfortunately, no, you can’t eat a classic English muffin recipe on your keto journey.
In fact, an authentic English muffin recipe is high in carbs and made of high-carb wheat flour.
How Many Carbs Are In English Muffins?
There are about 26 grams of net carbs in one English muffin, so eating one will quickly blow your carb counts!
This is why you need a keto version of the English Muffins.
What Is A Keto English Muffin Recipe?
Keto 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 an oven ramekin at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes.
How To Make Keto English Muffins
This low-carb English muffin recipe is a straightforward 1-bowl recipe using only 6 ingredients.
To make the best keto English muffin recipe, all you need are:
- Almond Flour – I recommend ultra-fine almond flour for white, golden bread with no bites of almonds. However, almond meal will work too but can leave a gritty texture to your keto bread.
- Coconut Flour – the combo of both flours adds a heavier bread texture similar to regular English muffins. Don’t replace coconut flour with more almond flour, or the texture won’t be as good.
- Oil – coconut oil, light olive oil, almond oil, all these options work 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, sweet or savory.
- Sweet English muffins – add sugar-free crystal sweeteners like erythritol and cinnamon.
- For a savory version of this bread – add garlic powder and salt – for the savory tooth.
Making Crispy Low-Carb English Muffins Batter
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 bring it into a toaster oven, or in a bread toaster on bagel mode, for 1-2 minutes or until golden and crispy.
You can also fry these almond flour English muffins in a cast-iron skillet with butter or coconut oil.
Serving Keto English Muffin
You can use this quick keto bread as a simple toast, served with cream cheese, butter, or sugar-free chia seed jam.
Otherwise, you can use this 90-second keto English muffin as a keto breakfast sandwich base or for a sausage patty.
They are delicious, filled with fried egg, bacon, and avocado.
