When you're looking for an easy keto bread recipe, this keto muffin will be your next favorite easy recipe on your keto journey. Made with simple ingredients and curbs the bread cravings when you are on a keto diet or low carb diet or just looking to balance your blood sugar levels.
This recipe was originally posted in April of 2016, but since it is such a popular recipe I decided to give it a little update with a video below.
I don't often crave breads since I've been following a low-carb lifestyle for years and recently over the last few I've been following a keto lifestyle.
I'm more of a dessert kind of girl and really enjoy my healthy fats, if you haven't noticed or been browsing through my recipe index recently.
But I've been really missing having an regular English Muffin every once in a while. I've got quite a few low carb bread recipes, but I didn't want to make a whole loaf, so that's how this single serving microwave muffin came to be.
This keto version is the perfect size and perfect solution when time is a factor! It's a 90 second keto bread!
I'm telling you, this will hit the spot if you've been wanting the taste of a real breakfast English Muffin bread.
Keto Friendly Topping Options
Sugar free strawberry Jam with cream cheese would be a choice, but even just a little butter is perfect too.
My Sugar Free Blueberry Syrup from my Dairy Free Cheesecake would also be delicious, but if you're in the mood for a keto breakfast sandwich, make my Sugar Free Sausage, top with cheese and enjoy between two muffin slices!
If you enjoy savory toppings, I would recommend cream cheese with some smoked salmon, capers and everything but the bagel seasoning.

Keto English Muffin FAQs
Can I swap the almond flour for coconut flour?
Yes you can swap the almond flour used in this recipe with ½ tablespoon of coconut flour.
Can I make these in the oven instead of microwave?
If you'd rather bake this than microwave, bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees F until a toothpick in center comes out clean.
I put this picture here so you can see for sure exactly how it looks when done cooking. Doesn't look like much of an English Muffin does it?
Do I have to toast it?
Yes, you should toast this Keto English muffin. Once you slice and toast it, the magic happens!
Can I make a larger batch?
Yes you can make a larger batch of this recipe of these low-carb english muffins. Here is my adapted version to serve for a family, Low Carb English Muffins for 4.
Can I swap the cashew butter?
If you don't like the nut butter I used, you can sub peanut butter instead, tastes just as delicious, but has a much stronger taste because peanut butter is not subtle! In my opinion it does not have an egg flavor because of using the nut butter.
Can I make this nut free?
Yes I've adapted this recipe to be nut free. Here's my 1 Minute Cinnamon English Muffin made without any tree nuts.
Can I make these a Paleo English Muffin?
Yes, I adapted this original recipe to make them paleo using coconut oil.
How to Make Keto English Muffins
You need cashew butter unsweetened, butter, almond flour, salt, baking powder, unsweetened almond milk, and an egg.
Spray the 2 ramekins you are using with olive oil cooking spray or coconut oil spray.
Add the nut butter and butter to the dish.
Microwave for 30 seconds and mix until smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a small mixing bowl whisk the almond flour, salt and baking powder together.
Pour the milk and egg to dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Pour this mixture evenly into the two greased ramekins with the almond butter mixture and stir to combine well.
Microwave in 30 second intervals for about 90 seconds or until toothpick in center comes out clean. Cooking time will vary depending on the wattage of your microwave.
Allow to cool a few minutes before taking it out of the ramekin and slicing in half to toast.
Toast until desired and add your favorite toppings.
How to Store Keto English Muffins
You can make this recipe, bake in the oven or microwave, but do not toast until you are ready to eat it. Slice in half, wrap in parchment paper and place in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Can I freeze keto English muffins?
Yes you can freeze these keto english muffins. Cook, cool, slice and do not toast. Freeze like this wrapped in parchment than in an airtight container. You can toast from frozen though may take a few more minutes when frozen.
What else can I cook it in?
I used a quiche ramekin because it's nice and shallow as opposed to a traditional small ramekin which is deeper.
One of my readers suggested adding the batter into a muffin top pan which I think is a great idea!
Grease 4 muffin top cups then add batter, this way you won't even need to slice them in half! Just pop them out of the pan and toast them like that.
Can I omit the salt?
Some readers have mentioned it is a bit salty, but I did not notice that. You can easily fix this simply by using unsalted butter and unsalted almond or peanut butter or just omit the pinch of salt.
