Now that the weather is warming up (well in NSW anyway), I'm starting to see mangoes in the shops.
So, if you're looking for a cooking activity for the kids, or would just like to bake a healthy treat. Here's one of our favourite recipes from our Anti-inflammatory eating cook book.
20 minutes preparation time, 20-30 minutes cooking time
2 ripe mangoes, or 2 cups frozen mango
1 handful frozen berries
½ - 1 cup almond meal
½ - 1 cup gluten free self-raising flour
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Almond or soy milk as needed for moisture
- Preheat oven to 180oC and lightly grease a muffin tray or line with muffin patties.
- Blend mango, then combine with frozen berries, almond meal, gluten free self-raising flour, eggs and chia seeds.
- Add a splash of milk as required to moisten batter and spoon batter into muffin tray.
- Bake in oven for approximately 20-30 minutes, or until a skewer gently poked into muffin can be removed clean of batter.
Makes 10-12 muffins
Note: this recipe also works well with seeds, dates and other nuts or fruit added in as well or instead.
This, and many other delicious AND anti-inflammatory recipes can be found in our cookbook.
