Lovely moist and fruity muffins, perfect either as a light breakfast or for dessert. Mango and coconut make these blueberry muffins quite tropical.
Run, right now (don't walk) to your kitchen and make these muffins. I scooped this recipe and I couldn't wait to get into the kitchen to make them. They did not disappoint. Full of flavor with a wonderful, moist cakey texture. The blueberries and mango held up perfectly within the batter and the combination of the two is a match made in heaven. But it doesn't stop there. The coconut streusel is the 'icing on the cake' that takes these muffins over the top. I followed this recipe just as written, with no adjustments at all, save for making them a batch of 12 rather than 16 (I like to overfill muffin cups). Served them for breakfast this morning and the kids wondered what they had done to deserve such a treat :D Thanks for a brilliant recipe, geranium. - 17 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I seriously ate 7 of these muffins in one sitting. But one note: they taste WAY better after cooling completely - the flavors come out more. And here's what I changed: doubled the streusel, added a tad bit brown sugar to streusel, used applesauce instead of butter in muffin batter, used half whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup flaxseed to make them healthier, and had to use regular milk because I didn't have buttermilk. SO ADDICTING!!! - 19 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
New Update: I've made them twice. Be sure to buy a "mango slicer". Our Wegman's had them. After slicing it open, cut a crosshatch pattern but don't slice through the skin. Then slide blade along the skin and you get mango chunks. Much easier than peeling a mango. Someone told me how, so I thought I would share. I use a whole mango and it is the perfect amount. - 20 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
