Dana Carpenders 500 lowcarb recipe book has a english muffin recipe.
Here you go:

English Muffins

1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 ts salt
2/3 cup vital wheat gluten
1/4 cup psyllium husks (can be gotten at health food store)
2 tbls wheat germ
1/4 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup oat flour (slow cooking oats grounded in flour)
1/2 vanilla-flavored whey protein powder (I use the plain and add a ts of vanilla extract to recipe)
1&1/2 ts yeast

1. Put the ingredients in your bread machine in the order given, and run until the end of the "rise"cycle. Remove the dough from the machine.

2. Using just enough oat flour on your work surface to keep dough from sticking, pat the dough out so it's 1/2 inch thick.

3. Using a tin can with both ends removed as a cutter (a tuna can works well), cut out rounds from the dough. Cover them with a clean cloth, set them aside in a warm place, and let them rise for about 1 hour, or until they've doubled in bulk.

4. Heat a heavy skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Scatter the surface lightly with wheat germ to prevent sticking, and place as many muffins in the skillet as will fit easily. Let the muffins bake for about 6 minutes per side, or until browned. Eat these just like you would regular muffins-split them, toast them, and butter them.

Yield: About 6 muffins, or 12 servings. Each with 13 grams of carbs and 6.5 grams of fiber. 14 grams protein.

After I typed this I realized that it is 13 carbs per muffin, because a serving is 1/2 a muffin. For 1 more gram of carbs, it might be worth the Thomas' just to save time in making these. Just a thought!

A man asked Gautama Buddha, "I want happiness." Buddha said, "First remove "I," that's Ego, then remove "want," that's Desire. See now you are left with only "Happiness.”

That sounds clever! I'll have to get my Dana Carpender cookbook out and try those. Thanks! Have you tried them yet?

I think 14 grams of carbs for one item is not really low enough in carbs for those of us still wanting to lose some weight and even on maintenance that is a carb-expensive item. They don't get it do they - some of these manufacturers. It helps to have manufacturers who have a stake in it other than just money - you know people who actually do the diet themselves.
