Mango & Lime Muffins

I recently got sent some of Urban Fruit‘s products to try out in my baking. They make dried fruit that they gently bake at low temperatures and they never add any extra sugars. You can pretty much do anything with their products that you like, my ideas are bake with it, add it to cereal or yoghurt, or eat it as a healthy snack! Of course baking with it is what I did and I thought lime was a fabulous tropical flavour to pair with the mango, so these Mango & Lime Muffins were created!

Jump straight to the recipe!

The selection of strawberry and mango fruits I received. They do 90g and 35g packs.

I started by creaming together caster sugar, butter and the lime zest. Keep the remaining half for garnishing.

I added eggs and vanilla extract and whisked in.

Then I folded in self raising flour. And finally added the Urban Fruit dried mango, I cut any
larger pieces in half.

I divided the mixture between 12 muffin cases and baked for 20 minutes.

To decorate I melted white chocolate and drizzled it over the muffins. Then I garnished with the leftover half of lime zest.

The Mango & Lime Muffins were really fresh and delicious. I loved the lime flavour, and the mango gave them a nice texture. It didn’t have a strong mango flavour, it was quite mild but tasty all the same! They certainly got eaten up fast.
