  2. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

  3. Using the 1/4 cup of the saved white whole wheat flour, flour a pastry board, and knead dough until it's not sticky - slowly adding flour.  By the end, the dough should be easy to handle, and not at all sticky.

    Continue to flour the board until the dough doesn't stick.

    Press out or roll out dough - until it's 1/2 -  inch thick.

  4. Using a glass with a 3" diameter, or English Muffin cutter (I use a glass), cut the English muffins and place them on a sheet lined with parchment paper.  Cover English Muffins with a towel, and allow them to rise on the stove for 30 minutes.

    Once they are nice and puffy (you will notice the rise).  Place them in the oven and allow to bake 4-5 minutes per side.  They will be golden brown.

  5. Allow to cool, and place covered for up to a week, or freeze and thaw in the toaster.  Or, cut open with a fork, add some jam and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Never cut English Muffins with a knife.  Pry them open with a form, so all of the nooks and crannies can soak up your delicious homemade almond butter, jam, or sky yogurt!
