These babies are triple-packed with mangos cuz they have mango puree, mango-flavored yogurt AND dried mango bits! If you love mangos like I do, you should also know that they're really good for you too! They're loaded with antioxidants like vitamins A, E and C and they're also packed with fiber, which we all need more of. The yogurt kept these muffins really moist and the dried bits added a great texture in every bite. Very good and perfect for the spring-like weather we're finally getting!
Ingredients: (12 muffins)
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 mangos, peeled, pureed (I used my mini food processor)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c (6 oz) Mango-flavored yogurt (I used Yoplait Apricot Mango)
1/2 c dried mango bits (I used Sunmaid Tropical Trio)
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, beating well. Beat in mango and vanilla until well blended.
3. Stir flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add to mixer and mix just until combined. Stir in yogurt and dried bits.
4. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, until golden around the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
