Quick Vegan English Muffins

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  When I was single, my friends and I were always getting together for breakfast, more than any other meal.  Growing up, it was the only meal that my family actually ate together.  To me, it’s always been more than a break from fasting:  it’s been an experience.  Now that I have my own family, we love to sit down in the morning and have breakfast together.  My kids love breakfast for dinner as well, so, I’m always looking for new breakfast ideas.  We’re homeschoolers and we have the luxury of being able to have a leisurely breakfast together.  Today I made homemade gluten free English muffins for the family to use for breakfast sandwiches.  Since I’m the only one eating vegan, I wanted to make myself one for breakfast.  This is a revamped paleo recipe which was high in eggs.  It’s a quick and simple recipe to make, but the important step is the sautéing in the skillet after it has baked.  That really ramps up the taste and the mouth feel of the muffin.  I had it with some natural chunky peanut butter and a side of blueberries.  It was a nice breakfast.

In a small bowl, mix the flax meal and water. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes until it is the consistency of egg whites. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture into a greased 500 ml ramekin. Cook in microwave for 2 minutes (or bake in a 400◦ oven for about 12 minutes). Remove from pan. Carefully cut in half horizontally. Fry in a greased skillet for about a minute on each side, until lightly golden brown. Makes one muffin.
