Had a can of mangoes I wanted to eat but it was in sugar syrup so that was sucky. Couldn't let Bellamy eat it, so muffins it was. These are super yummy and quick to throw together. If your kid goes to a health nazi school like mine does, they can't say anything about it cause these are full of fruit and that's health. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
You could easily up the health factor by using all or half whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of oil, and splenda instead of sugar. You could also add nuts, raisins, seeds, or anything else you could think of to these. Blueberries would kick it up a notch too. But if you're gonna do that, you may as well try my Blueberry Nectarine Bread. It's a winner.
