store to get some off-the-shelf product, what if i told you that you can make freshly baked english muffins right in your microwave that are gluten-free, very low in carbs, and are downright tasty. all we do is mix some almond flour, (which is very popular right now) with a bit of gluten-free baking powder. once combined, we add in some canned pumpkin, a splash of milk, an egg and a little cinnamon. after this is smooth, we spoon it into a shallow microwavable soup bowl and pop it in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the center sets. that's all there is to it. when it's cools, we have single- serve, freshly baked treats that are full of flavor, not gluten. now, we can serve this up in place of our old stany hamburger bun (without all the guilt)...or toast it and it's just as welcome with a rise
