MANGO COCONUT MUFFINS
Makes: 9 muffins
Bake time: 18-20 min
1/2 cup White Leaf Provisions Biodynamic baby food in "Mango & Carrot & Banana & Pear", at room temp
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk, at room temp
1/4 cup melted unrefined coconut oil
1/4 cup water, at room temp
2 tsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour: 1 cup white all purpose flour & 1 cup whole wheat flour OR 2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour
1/2 cup raw organic cane sugar, plus more for sprinkling
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1 cup finely diced fresh, ripe mango
1/2 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
-Preheat oven to 425 (Note: half way through baking, we drop temp to 350, so get ready!)
-Line a muffin tin with 9 paper liners
-In a medium bowl, combine all wet ingredients except for diced mango (White Leaf Provisions Biodynamic baby food in "Mango & Carrot & Banana & Pear", coconut milk. water, coconut oil, lime juice & vanilla.) Make sure all ingredients are at room temp or coconut oil will solidify. Mix well.
-In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt & ginger.) Whisk very well to combine. Make it a dance & have some fun with it.
-Create a hole in the center of dry ingredients & pour wet ingredients in. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, mix wet & dry together until just combined & no dry flour spots appear. Don't over mix! Muffins are sensitive. Some clumps are ok.
-Fold in diced mango.
-Fill muffin-lined tins to the brim with batter. Trust us, they won't overflow! This is how you get a nice muffin top & not a cupcake-like muffin.
-Generously sprinkle with coconut like you're on a tropical vacation.
-Bake at 425 for 10 minutes until risen & golden brown.
-Drop temp to 350 & bake 8-10 more minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
-Take muffins out of oven & sprinkle with raw, organic cane sugar.
-Let cool in pan for 10 minutes.
-Remove from pan & continue cooling on a wire rack.
