Mango Blueberry Muffins


with cinnamon pecan streusel


grain free, gluten free, no added sugar

 

 

 

If you are recently grain free (like we are) you will know that making acceptable muffin replacements is not the easiest thing. The first time I tried they were super eggy, the second time they were good but not the buttery fluffy texture I had been missing, the third time they sank and didn't rise, the fourth time-- oh my goodness yum! These are the grain free muffins you have been looking for!

Though we didn't use any sugar in this recipe they do have 6 g of sugar from the mango and 15 net carbs (per 3 muffins). We went for it anyway even though we are on a keto diet because these are still full of healthy fat, fiber, and goodness. These are much lower carb than conventional mini blueberry muffins. The mini blueberry muffins from Giant grocery store have 18 g of sugar ( from white sugar) and 33 g of carbs with no fiber or vitamins.The superfoods like wild blueberries and mango I think are well worth the carbs.

Interesting fact about mangos, they are in the same family of plants as pistachios and cashews. Mangos (like their other plant family members) are not only tasty but they have many great health benefits. The high Vitamin C content helps with healthy immune function, its vitamin A is important for vision, bone growth, and maintaining healthy mucous membranes and skin, and because they are rich in carotenes they can even help protect against some cancers.

Wild Blueberries have the highest proportion of antioxidants of any food on the planet. That is pretty impressive for such a tiny little berry! They are also a great brain food and prebiotic.They are one of our favorite fruits and we are working on ways we can bring these to you in our next line of products!

These come together quickly and make a nice breakfast treat. So delicious with a nice cup of organic coffee. I hope you like these as much as we do!

 

 

What you will need:

For the streusel topping:
  • 2 tbsp, Butter unsalted
  • 2 tbsp, Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 c. xylitol
  • 1/4 c. chopped raw pecans
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses
For the muffins:
  • 1 packet mango baby and everyone else food
  • 4 tbsp grass fed buttermilk
  • 2 free range cage free eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 c. raw milk
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. almond flour
  • 1/4 c. coconut four
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 2 tbsp xylitol
  • 1/2 c. wild blueberries

How to:

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and line a mini muffin pan with mini cupcake liners.

  1. In a bowl, empty packet of mango and add 4 tbsp buttermilk. Let sit for a few minutes to reconstitute.

  2.  

  3. Meanwhile, make the streusel topping. In a small bowl add the xylitol and molasses. Mix well until it turns to brown sugar. Then, mix in the cinnamon and coconut flour. Cut in the butter and mix it in. Stir in the peacans last and make sure they are nicely coated. It works best if you add the butter and coat the nuts by mixing with your hands. Set aside.


  4. Meanwhile, add the eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, milk, and lemon juice to another bowl and whisk until mixed.

  5. Whisk in the reconstituted mango.

  6. In a third bowl add in all of the remaining dry ingredients. Mix well.

  7. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just mixed.

  8. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter. (Very gently unless you want totally purple muffins)

  9. Scoop with a tbsp scooper (like this one) into muffin liners.

  10. Crumble streusel on top of the muffins before baking. You probably will only use about half of it. You can refrigerate the rest and make these again!

  11.  

  12. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Cool and enjoy!

What Are Mangos Good For?

Nutrition per a serving size of 3 mini muffins compared to that of a popular brand of conventional mini muffins.

* not sure where MyFitnessPal is pulling all that sodium from according to my calculations.... the products used that contain sodium were blackstrap moleasses- 8 mg, eggs- 140 mg, sea salt- 440 mg, Bob's Red Mill Double Acting Baking Powder Aluminum Free-590 mg, raw milk-55mg, buttermilk-31.25 mg and coconut flour-90 mg =1354 and the app sets your daily sodium at 2,300 so that is 58.87%. The highest sources are sea salt (more info) you and baking powder ( more info on sodium bicarbonate). Also, there's increasing evidence that healthy people don't need to worry about salt intake according to the American Heart association so we don't really track sodium anyway.
