i refuse to use a microwave, so is there an alternative?

Hi there. At this time the Test Kitchen does not have an alternative for this recipe. The batter is loose, so will run everywhere if you try and put it on a baking sheet. So, at the moment, the Test Kitchen has this as a microwave-only recipe.

I have been gluten-free for 17 years. This recipe is going to be made by me hundreds of times. I just made it and it was WONDERFUL!!!! It is light, spongy and very tasty. I ate it this time with butter and jelly. Many people do not realize how hard it is for a person that's celiac to get a great breakfast muffin that is fast and easy to make. This was. Does it taste like a store bought english muffin...no. But it will work in place of it and in some cases it may even be better. I haven't tried making it with my regular gluten free flour, but I will. I would also suggest that SissieSass try it that way.

I want to try this recipe so much, but we cannot use almond flour in our home since my daughter is allergic. Do you have any idea what we could substitute for the almond flour so that we can try your muffins too? I think they sound so yummy and so much healthier since they use the pumpkin puree. I think I am going to have to stock up on that stuff since I keep finding recipes on here that call for it.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen says that you can substitute whole wheat flour or tapioca starch in this recipe, however this will change the provided Nutritional Information. Keep this in mind when determining if this recipe meets your diabetic-friendly diet. :) Enjoy!

This is such a unique twist on an English muffin. Can't wait to try it!
