Introduction:

Mangos are a fairly new addition to our household and I was looking for ways to eat them other than in the raw form. This recipe was a great solution. Not my favorite muffin recipe, but a good choice for a mango flavor.

Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup oatmeal

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup butter

1 egg, beaten

1 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup banana, mashed

1/2 cup mango, chopped

Instructions:

1. Combine flours, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon. Combine milk, egg and vanilla. Cut butter into flour mixture, then moisten with milk, egg and vanilla mixture. Fold in banana and mango.

2. Spoon batter into greased muffin pan 2/3 full and bake at 400 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes.

Comments:

My biggest complaint about these muffins is that they got very moist and gooey after sitting for a day or so. I suspect that has to do with the fresh fruit, but I tend to like a dryer muffin. Our home rating indicates these aren’t a regularly used recipe, but definitely an okay option when you want something a little different.

Our Home Rating? 2/5 bites
