Tropical Mango Muffins....Yummy

Tuesday again, can you believe it the week goes by so fast, and just when you turn around, it's Tuesday.....This week's choice comes by way of Kelly from Baking with Boys. A mother of two living in Kansas City, who is a self proclaimed fruit crazy gal. And Mangos are at the top of her list. That is why she chose Mango Bread. I made mine into muffins, just because their easier to pack up on the go, for lunches or baseball games.

I decided to change mine up a bit and make it even more tropical. I used Kelly's lower fat version HERE. And then I added 1/2 c. chopped pineapple, 1/2 c. shredded coconut, and 2 tsp rum extract.....I also omitted the raisins, because they just didn't fit into the theme I had in mind.

And I have to tell you that with a bit of tea, either iced or hot, they were super tasty. I'm glad I made the changes, because I love tropical. So give them a try...and if you can't find fresh mango in your supermarket, I am sure you will find canned. Which isn't bad to work with . And if you want to see what others are up to at TWD check it out here!

We give this 5 glasses of milk,

I like the changes you made to make this more tropical! I would bake this as muffins next time - it's just easier to eat that way.

Your tropical mango muffins sure look tasty! I'm with Jill, I'd try it again as muffins for the convenience factor.

These muffins sound wonderful! Mangos are just now ready for the picking off our trees. I can't wait to try this.
