Miss bread with breakfast? It only takes a couple minutes to make a paleo English muffins in a minute. And they are low carb and grain free!
Are you trying to move away from processed foods? The paleo diet seems to be the way to go. Although it’s tougher to do both low carb and paleo, it’s doable and really the healthiest way to eat.
I’ve been trying to do more paleo friendly low carb recipes on the website. And, personally, I find that my health is better when I eat more low carb whole foods. My weight is always better maintained as well.
Eggs are a staple for me. I like to eat them for all meals because they are so quick and easy to prepare. My husband prefers to eat his in a sandwich so I’ve been craving some bread with mine.

I decided to modify the low carb muffin in a mug recipe I have. Rather than use blanched almond flour, I used unblanched almond butter. You lose some of the benefits of almonds by removing the skins. That’s why it’s best not to buy the “naked” almond butter where the skins are removed.
It should take only half a minute or so to stir all the ingredients together. I used a standard sized ramekin and the muffin did puff up with a slightly rounded top.
If you are looking to do a sandwich, you may want to separate the batter into two smaller ramekins. That way, you can just slice each muffin in half and still stay within the serving size. If you are the only one eating, save the second muffin for later!
I’ve found that these little paleo English muffins in a minute are the perfect way to make a quick breakfast sandwich. Just prepare the muffins in the microwave and fry up the eggs. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have a delicious egg sandwich.
When we make our eggwiches, we add bacon and cheese. It’s quicker than going to a fast food drive-thru. And, they are so much healthier than the ones made with high carb bread.
It’s not necessary, but toasting each half of the muffin makes it much crunchier. And I love it when the butter melts and soaks into the bread. These paleo english muffins are also great for dipping into runny egg yolks.
When you want a quick and easy piece of bread with your meal, keep this recipe in mind. If you don’t have any almond butter, you can make the original recipe. But, I think using almond butter makes it tastier.
The first time I saw almond butter used in a low carb bread recipe was on the Low Carb So Simple website. You can find that recipe here. In fact, my first attempt at these paleo English muffins used twice as much almond butter and the muffin rose sky high and was super fluffy
I wanted something closer to a personal size. So, I decreased the amount of almond butter to better fit a serving. That was done just in case someone wanted to eat the whole muffin.
The fluffier version of the muffin in a minute may need to be tweaked more to use as a cake recipe. And I’d probably use the blanched almond butter for a sweet cake recipe.
Some people aren’t fond of using a microwave for baking. I was that way at first. But, the microwave doesn’t destroy the food any more than traditional cooking methods. And, it’s completely safe.
Do you bake personal sized recipes using your microwave? If so, what’s your favorite?
