I finally found the Food for Life English Muffins here in Columbus. I had seen them when I was on vacation, but knew I that I didn’t have room to bring them back with me. I am not sure what my obsession is with gluten-free English muffins. Sure, I liked them well enough before I had to start the gluten-free diet, but I never ate them very often.
Food for Life English Muffins have a simple ingredient list with no preservatives and they are pre-split!! Do you know what that means? It means that they can be split with a fork. I kid you not! Each muffin contains 220 calories, 2 grams of fat, 4 grams of fiber & 4 grams of protein. The first time I toasted one & used it for a sandwich. I may have toasted it a little too long because it was very crispy. The taste was great, but it was hard to eat as a sandwich. The next time, I made sure to toast it for less time. I topped the muffin that time with avocado slices. Perfect!!
How do these compare to the other English muffins I have tried? Joan’s GF Great Bakes English Muffins are still on the top of my list, but these come in 2nd place. I like how they split so easily. The Food for Life English Muffins are less than half the price ($5.29) of Joan’s (over $13), so that makes them even more attractive. Don’t get me wrong, I love Joan’s GF Great Bakes, but $13 for 6 English muffins is pricey. Trader Joe’s does make an English muffin in addition to the French roll, but they don’t sell them in Ohio. I like the price of the French rolls – under $4 for 4 rolls. I am not sure what the TJ’s English muffins sell for. Do you have a favorite gluten-free English muffin? The next step for me is learning how to make them at home. I got some English muffin rings for Christmas, so I should probably put them to use.
