English Muffin Ideas

English muffins (whole wheat or sprouted) rock my vegan diet for three reasons –

  1. Good source of protein and fiber. In the muffin alone, the protein averages 5g-6g with about 3 g of fiber. Add to that the protein and fiber from whatever I top them with and it’s not bad for an easy snack.
  2. Endless possibilities. From sweet to savory and breakfast to dessert, it’s all good.
  3. Affordable. Whole grain/sprouted English muffins range in price from $.48-.61 a piece. With the cost of toppings you’re looking at a total of less than $2 (max) for a great meal. Compare the cost and nutrient density of these meals to those at McDonald‘s or Dunkin Donuts the choice is clear.
  4. Quick and easy. They are honestly simple to make. All are delicious and require minimal clean up. In addition, they pack well and are pretty portable.
