Gluten free english muffins

So I have a new product to recommend! While in Flagstaff, I always enjoy shopping at their local health food store called New Frontiers. And more than anything, I love shopping with my girlfriend, former OT and eternal food guru. She is a raw foodist and can always be counted on to provide several new recipes that my family loves. I needed some cacao butter but she had also told me about these sprouted grain, gluten free english muffins from Food for Life. I quickly grabbed up 2 bags. They even have chia seeds so they do offer a little more in the way of protein, not just those nasty starches that I worry about in terms of feeding yeast. Now that we are home, they have become a staple. In the morning they are a great option with some fresh made blueberry jam that I got at the Flagstaff farmer's market. Or after an afternoon running out to the chiropractor (hurt my neck and back somehow) and nothing planned for dinner, they made easy "mini pizzas". All I did was broil them with a little Daiya mozzarella cheese and a single slice of home grown tomato. The kids gobbled them up along with some asparagus spears. Perfect! The kids love them! So if you are looking for another bread option, I highly recommend these. I haven't looked to see if I can get them here, and they aren't even on the company's website that I could find. I will definitely be on the lookout for these locally!

Can you find these here and what is the mozarella you mentioned? Glad you had a great vacation. We just returned from California and I had him off supplements the whole time. He did great! What a difference a year makes!

The cheese is called Daiya and it comes in a cheddar as well. You can buy it at Whole Foods or the Gluten Free Country Store!

Sprouts has those here in Goodyear, AZ. Also they have frozen gluten free muffins that are good too. Once in a while they sell ALL their gluten free stuff at 25% off, that's when we stock up.
