Nuts and seeds English Muffins

Billie Blair


My family loves these muffins. They are the best and the healthiest I've ever had. Either split them with a fork or slice with a knife. Toast, butter, crème cheese or make a breakfast sandwich. I've mailed them to Alaska, California and Texas. They freeze well also.

Directions Step-By-Step

Assemble all ingredients, white flour in one bowl and rye, wheat germ and oat bran in another bowl. Nuts and seeds in another bowl
In a large bowl, ( I use a Kitchen Aid) dissolve yeast, sugar in 2 cups of the water. Beat in eggs, honey, and salt. Add 2 cups of white flour and remaining 1 cup of water.
alternate white flour and rye flour mixture to make a soft dough. Add the nuts and seeds and continue adding all the flours .
Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic adding more flour if necessary. Place dough in a large greased bowl and let rise till double, about 1 hour
divide into workable pieces and roll out to 1/4" thickness. Cover and let set for 5 Minutes. Cut into 4" circles and put into greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 8 Minutes, turn muffin over and bake another 7 minutes till they are golden brown.
Let cool on a wire rack, cut into half and enjoy.
I could not find a cookie cutter that was 4" so I bought a large can of vegetables and cut the ends off and that's my cutter.
