Mango Muffins with Coconut-Lime Streusel (Paleo, Gluten-free)
These Mango Muffins with Coconut-Lime Streusel are the perfect healthy snack or dessert during the summer months when mangoes are in season. This recipe uses fresh mangoes and is topped with a sweet Coconut-Lime Streusel.
Begin by making the Coconut-Lime Streusel. In a bowl, add all the ingredients listed except for the lime zest. Mix with a spoon or your hands to combine everything together. Set aside.
Puree the mangoes in a food processor or blender until creamy.
Add the eggs, coconut oil, lime juice, vanilla extract, and honey to the processor and pulse to combine everything with the pureed mango.
Add the dry ingredients (flaxseed meal, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda) to the processor and process until the batter is formed.
Optional - mix the macadamia nuts into the batter with a spoon.
Fill each muffin cup almost to the top with the batter. Then using your hands, sprinkle the Coconut-Lime Streusel on top of each muffin.
Bake muffins uncovered for 10 minutes, then place a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the pan and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Set the pan on a wire rack to cool, then remove muffins from the pan and let them cool for another 5 minutes on the rack before serving.
Sprinkle lime zest on top of each muffin and serve.
TIP - These muffins don't stick too much to regular paper muffin cups and you can use these if you have them. If you use the type of paper cups made from parchment paper, your muffins will come out clean and no crumbs will be left on the paper. You can also skip using paper cups and bake these muffins in silicon muffins pans if you have them. These are great non-stick pans that don't need any greasing.
