Hope everyone had a fun and safe weekend! We stayed in town this long weekend and celebrated the holidays with friends. I had way too much food and way too many drinks that I could go a couple of days without any food. Not that I am going to! I even tried to make some extra food to last us through the middle of the week. These muffins were meant to be breakfast for this week, but they disappeared before the weekend was over.
Siv frowned at the idea of Mango muffins, he didn’t want me to waste precious mangoes. For him mangoes are meant to be eaten as is, why spoil perfection? Well, I do agree with him to a certain extent, but sometimes a girl’s gotta have some variety in life. I am glad I stuck to my ground, because these turned out wonderful! I don’t know if Siv agrees with me, at least he didn’t complain while munching down a couple of these daily with his morning coffee. Next time I would double the amount of mangoes. I only used one mango this time, but the ingredient list has two listed, I am sure that would make it even better!
(For 6 large muffins or 12 mini muffins)
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
- 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp poppy seeds
- 1 tsp ginger grated
- 2 ripe mangoes chopped
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 5 tbsp butter, softened
- Vegetable cooking spray for greasing the muffin tins
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Line muffin tins with paper liners or grease with vegetable oil.
Whisk the flours, baking powder, baking soda, poppy seeds and salt in a medium bowl and keep aside.
In a large bowl, break the egg and beat well. Mix in the softened butter, honey and yogurt and whisk well to combine.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated. With a wooden spoon, stir in the chopped mangoes and grated ginger.
Fill the prepared cups two-thirds full. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Transfer to a rack to cool.
