This exotic combination of dried mango and candied ginger is so good you'll forget that it is good for you. The coconut sprinkled on top gives an extra crunch and a lovely appearance.

  • Mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup flaked coconut, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.

  • Beat the eggs in another large bowl until creamy. Add applesauce, coconut milk yogurt, skim milk, vegetable oil, and honey to eggs. Blend well.

  • Stir flour mixture, dried mango, candied ginger, and honey into egg mixture just until blended. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about 3/4 of each cup. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons flaked coconut on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

The candied ginger is very sweet; therefore I don't like to add too much sugar or honey. If you don't like ginger, leave it out, they are still great. Just add another 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. My muffin cups are small, so I can get 12 muffins out of this recipe, but you can make them larger.

I noticed a few things when this recipe got edited. I used coconut yogurt not coconut milk yogurt. I didn't know this kind of yogurt existed! But it must be great too. Also in step 4 it says honey a second time and the honey should have already been added with the wet ingredients. Overall I hope everyone enjoys! Read More

This recipe was delicious! I made it exactly as written, using coconut flavored Chobani yogurt. I topped it with the coconut as described and added a few sliced almonds on top. My family thought they were the BEST muffins they ever had. I will definitely make them again! Read More
