Tropical Mango Muffins - easy gluten free breakfast recipe | SnappyGourmet.comTropical Mango Muffins, an easy gluten-free recipe for you today. I’ve been trying to come up with quick and easy breakfast recipes for the kids and I.  Mornings are always so crazy around here!  So I came up with this recipe for Tropical Mango Muffins that I’ve been making in big batches and freezing.  Instead of flour, they use almond flour and also have fresh mango, unsweetened coconut, honey, and lime juice. They are lower carb, gluten-free, and can also be made dairy-free.  The best part is that these muffins will fill you up for hours!!

Unfortunately, I didn’t take any “prep” pictures because I’ve been making these at night.  Sorry!  But they’re easy to put together.  The recipe makes about 3 dozen for me but your yield will vary a bit depending on the size of your mini muffin pan.  I have several different mini muffin pans and one is quite bigger than the others.  If you’ve never used almond flour, give it a try!  I used Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour.  You can find it in most large grocery stores, health stores, and online.  Instead of regular milk, I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk. which you can also find in most large grocery stores and elsewhere.

    I’ve been looking for a recipe for mango muffins….this sounds great!! I have two mango trees in my backyard that are overflowing (I live in the florida keys) everybody should be able to get them, this year was a jumbo bumper crop all over the state

  11. Hi Lisa~
    I tried these today and they came out flat. I live in Denver so we definitely have the altitude issue. Do you think I need to add something to get them to look more like yours? I followed everything else to the T. Thanks!

  12. I’ll have to make these while we’re in the Philippines; we eat fresh mangos every day!

  13. About the Mango Muffins: Why use only the whites of the eggs and not the whole eggs?
