We love muffins at our house. Love, love, love them. Pumpkin, blueberry, lemon...you just can't go wrong. I found this recipe for blueberry/mango muffins here and was intrigued by the combination. I made a few adjustments according to our tastes.
The males in my family are huge fans of mango. I'm not such a big mango girl, but I really enjoyed it in these muffins. If you're looking for a unique blueberry muffin to serve for a breakfast or brunch, I recommend you give these a try. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
Here's what you'll need to gather:
Flour, sugar, brown sugar, coconut, cinnamon, baking soda, butter, mango, blueberries, and applesauce.
The first thing you want to do is mix together the streusel.
Add 2 tbsp. of melted butter and give it a good stir.
Next, get your mango prepped and ready to go. This is the way my cooking hero, Alton Brown, cuts his mango and I think it's brilliant.
Grab your favorite corn cob holder and stick it in one end. Now you can use that as a handle to trim as much of the mango meat off the pit as you can.
