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. Visit the link in our sources to find out more amazing health advantages of mangos.
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!
* 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.
