Healthy Mango Muffins

Mango Muffins

I’m still on the healthy eating bandwagon and have loved experimenting in the kitchen with healthy snacks full of sweet summer fruit, but low in the bad stuff. I had a few mangoes hanging around the house that were slowly getting soft, and I wanted to make the most of the summer-y goodness and put together a healthy snack at the same time.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup of Splenda or Stevia (or sugar)
  • 2 mangoes (if mangoes aren’t in season you can use 2 cups of frozen mango pieces instead)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups of wholemeal flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius and prepare your muffin casings. Peel the mangoes and dice into pieces. Process 2/3 of the diced mango in a food processor to make a puree.
  2. Mix together the melted butter and sugar. Add the pureed mango, egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Add in the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients and combine.
  4. Once combined, add the remaining 1/3 of the mango pieces and mix together.
  5. Fill the muffin cups with batter. For extra something special, I like to add one extra dice on top of the muffin for decoration.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, then devour!
