Once upon a time, Mikey’s English Muffins revolutionized the paleo world. They were the first dairy-free, paleo bread to hit the mainstream, and even landed for a while at Walmart. Over time, Walmart discovered this clean label was a little too unique for their inventory, but Mikey’s English Muffins are still sold at natural food stores and online, and are a staple in many special diet homes.
Tasting Notes for Mikey’s English Muffins
We were pleased to find that Mikey’s English Muffins are light, tender, and definitely bread-like, making them oh-so-versatile. The round shape is perfect for everything from toast to burgers. That said, they aren’t airy like English Muffins. They have more of a wheat bread vibe and required a bit of coaxing to crisp up in the toaster.
They are generally cohesive (no crumbs!) and with the new improvements we were able to enjoy them as perfectly-sized burger buns! When we first tried Mickey’s English Muffins, they were a bit too egg-y in taste and texture. They reformulated and resolved that issue, and have even tweaked their recipes a few more times over the years. But they still offer the same classic line up of flavors.
This is their baseline flavor, which, as mentioned, is much like two round little slices of wheat bread, but with a slight hearty variation in taste and texture. Honestly, we not only enjoyed these topped with eggs, but also as the buns for turkey burgers! They were the absolute perfect fit for both, and held up nicely, so long as we thoroughly drained the eggs and the burgers (on paper towels) to soak up excess moisture before setting them atop a muffin bottom.

This was the only flavor that we didn’t enjoy. The texture was still good, but I only spotted one or two raisins in each whole muffin. They also had a stevia sweetness that was so sharp and off-putting. They kept the stevia through a couple product reformulations, but have since swapped it for monk fruit. I’m not a big fan of that sweetener either, so I’m not sure that my review would change. I’d rather they omit the alternative sweetener and just add more raisins!

What Others Are Saying ...
Found these at Fresh Thyme. They do provide a healthy alternative to wheat breads, something i have been looking for. I find the texture to be more cake like than bread and a bit dry. However with butter and sugar free jam they are quite good. Also have had them with poached eggs, also very goo.
Great grain-free option
These are tasty and versatile. They’re not really English muffins in taste or texture – a bit more like wheat bread. And they take a little extra effort to toast. But they do make a nice morning bread, and work great as grain-free burger and sandwich buns.
