AIP English Muffin


I’ve tried all kinds of recipes for English Muffins but this one I put together recently and wanted to share with you.  The original recipe is definitely Paleo from Running to the Kitchen, but I really needed it to be AIP without the nut flour or eggs. So I tried it with Otto’s cassava flour and a gelatin egg and believe it to be the best new English muffin recipe.

I like to put some nitrate/nitrite free turkey slices in between the two pieces of this great “bread” or you could put jam or butter on it too. It could also double as a burger bun!

AIP English Muffin

My new Best English muffin recipe.


  • 1/4 cup Otto's Cassava flour
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Gelatin egg See below for instructions
  • 1/2 Tbsp Coconut Oil or Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Water


  1. Place all dry ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together.

  2. Make gelatin egg - 1 Tbsp gelatin, 1 Tbsp water - mix thoroughly. Let sit a couple of minutes, then add 2 Tbsp Hot Water - mix thoroughly. Add to wet ingredients.

  3. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

  4. Grease a small ramekin and transfer the mixed batter into it.

  5. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.

  6. Remove from microwave (be very careful as dish will be HOT). Slice in half horizontally and place both halves into your toaster oven (or toaster) for about 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned.

  7. Once done, remove from the oven/toaster and use as you would any English muffin.

Recipe Notes

If you choose not to use your microwave, use muffin rings and a fry pan on the stove top.

  • Grease a small fry pan and inside of English muffin ring.
  • Turn on heat to medium low on stove.
  • Transfer batter to the ring in the fry pan.

  • Cover and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Check to ensure the muffin is cooked through.
  • Remove muffin to cooling rack and cool completely - about 30 minutes.
  • Split open the muffin, either with a fork, or with a sharp knife.
