Gluten Free Coconut Mango Muffins

Gluten-Free Coconut Mango Muffins

These Gluten-Free Coconut Mango Muffins were the result of a good friend bringing me fresh mangos. There’s nothing like a juicy mango in the middle of summer. When you have too many to eat before they go bad, these muffins are a sure way to make use of them. Accompanied by coconut, they’re the perfect tropical treat!

Coconut is in these muffins in 3 ways – coconut milk, coconut flakes, and coconut palm sugar. If you haven’t tried coconut palm sugar, you should! It doesn’t have a strong coconut flavor and is considered better for you than traditional white sugar. I use organic coconut palm sugar from Wholesome. I do sprinkle these with cane sugar at the end, but it’s raw, which helps give it a nice texture.

If you’re in the mood for baking but still want something summery, these are what you’re looking for!

    What kind of coconut milk would you use? There are the thick canned ones or thinner ones and coconut milk in tetra containers that are the consistency’ of regular milk. I imagine it would make a difference what kind is used in the recipe?

      Hi Anne,
      I used canned coconut milk. You could try the other kind but as you said, it’s thinner, so it might not work quite as anticipated.

        Did you use the full fat canned coconut milk? If so, did you include the watery part?

          Hi Ruth,

          Yes, full-fat canned coconut milk. Shake to incorporate the watery part with the creamy part, then measure the amount.

    Hello Carol,
    I am wondering what the closest measure of mango would be, please. Mangoes vary greatly in size and yield, so I am concerned about results…

    Also, can the eggs be replaced?

    Thank you very much!

      Hi Cindy,

      Approximately 2 cups on the mango. And although I haven’t tried an egg substitute, yes, this should work with a flax egg or other egg replacer like Ener-G.

      Hope you enjoy these!

    These sound wonderful. I have an egg allergy… can I substitute the egg with flax meal and water? Will this work for this recipe? Or do you know what other substitute would work better?

      Hi Kathy,
      I haven’t tried any egg substitutes with this recipe but yes, either the flax egg or perhaps a packaged egg substitute, like Ener-G egg replacer, should work.

      Let me know if you try it and if so, how it goes!

    Can I use frozen mango?

      Hi Debra,
      Yes, you can. Use 2 cups frozen mango, thawed.

    Does the all purpose gluten free flour contain xanthan gum or the equivalent?

    1. Gluten Free & More
      June 26, 2020

      Yes, I always use my own gluten-free all-purpose flour blend, which does contain xanthan gum. You can use something else that still maintains the properties of an all-purpose blend even if it doesn’t specifically use xanthan gum (some might use guar gum, etc.).
