Straight up, I'm in love with English muffins.
It could be the way they hold peanut butter perfectly with all those nooks and crannies. Or the fact that I think it would have a British accent if it could talk, but I just love 'em.
What I don't love is the fact that I'm hungry two seconds after eating one, EVEN if it's slathered in a thick layer of the good stuff (pb that is).
Call me a rebel dietitian, but I'm not big on whole wheat. Pastas, breads, rice, gimme the white stuff or nothing at all.
Which is why I just eat them on occasion and enjoy them, rather than eating whole wheat versions more often. But this one here, has the best of both worlds.
It's made with whole wheat flour, but has that light nutrient-void texture I know and love. But it also has 12 grams of protein in it, so I can eat one instead of 4 to feel satisfied. AND it's made in the microwave with only a handful of ingredients.
...Okay so best of like 3 worlds, but who's counting?!
I'm a big protein powder user, and have tried just about every kind there is out there. Vegan, chocolate flavored, with probiotics, yada yada. I do love the creamy lightness whey protein gives (especially in my smoothie bowls!), but a lot of the flavored varieties were made with weird fillers and sweeteners which upset my stomach.
Which is why I was more than a little excited when Naked Nutrition reached out to me after looking at their protein powders for a whole, and better quality protein I could add to my morning smoothies or oats.
It literally has one ingredient in it, and comes from a sustainable source, which is better for the environment, the cows, and my stomach. No upset!
But hey, everyone knows how to add a scoop of pro to a smoothie. Enter my low carb English muffin. The end.

Are you a whole wheat fan?
What's your favorite type of bread?
I'm so with you - I eat an English muffin and am reaching for a snack within 1-2 hours. I'm intrigued by this recipe as it looks so simple. Will definitely be trying it once I get some regular protein powder (all I have at home is vanilla and chocolate).

Love how easy this recipe is - and the fact that it packs a powerful punch of protein! I don't use protein powders very often, but I may need to pick some up so I can give this recipe a try!
Having gone gluten free, English muffins are something I really miss. These look good.
This is so creative! Doesn't get much easier than 5 ingredients AND made in the microwave! 😀
I just watched the bakers on the Great British Baking show make English muffins!
These look awesome!
