These coconut streusel-topped vegan muffins are studded with juicy mango chunks and crunchy walnut pieces. They're perfect for weekend brunching or any day snacking.
If you love blueberry muffins, these little guys are pretty much a sure bet. Swap out blueberries for mango chunks and throw in a few extra goodies like streusel and walnuts. I kept the batter at a not-too-sweet level in a effort to let the sweetness of the mangoes shine through. Mangoes are just about my favorite fruit ever, and I think these muffins now reign as my favorite muffins ever.
It's Saturday on a holiday weekend, so I'm going to be brief today and pretty much drop you guys with a recipe. Maybe you've got some brunch plans and can put this one to good use? I hope it comes in handy. Enjoy.
