I admit…I never really tried a mango until about 2 years ago. They’re just one of those fruits that doesn’t look too interesting and has kind of spicy smell (which means I’m out if it’s at all spicy).
I’ve also tried some of those HUGE bags of dried mangoes at Costco – and hated them.
But last year I decided to get a dehydrator and mango was one of the things I tried…and they were AMAZING! I ate them all and didn’t share any with the kids!
Then last week we found this fun little roadside farmer’s market and the kids picked up a couple of mangoes. So I kept thinking I would make those mango chips again…but then I thought, “I wonder if I can come up with a mango muffins recipe.”
Well…here ya go! And it’s mild tasting – it’s the perfect kid friendly recipe!
Mango Muffins Recipe
Mangos are a little tricky to cut. You have to cut them sideways along the widest part (that makes no sense sorry…check out this article on how to cut a mango if you still need help). They have a long thin seed so cutting both sides so they’re very wide and then cut the two smaller sides off.
Also for this recipe, I used a potato peeler and peeled the skin off before cutting them. This was MUCH easier so they weren’t so slippery.
I also used my Ninja Express Chop to chop the mango into very tiny pieces before adding to the mix. My kids would rebel if their muffins had chunks so make sure to chop them for at least 30 seconds.
