Banana Mango Muffins

Serves: 4

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week and have some fun an/or relaxing plans for the upcoming weekend! Not too much will be going on in our house since it is football playoffs! That is like Christmas for the boyfriend! Tonight I will be prepping some food to have during the games and tomorrow we will be going to get a (much needed) massage before the 4:30pm start time! (Yes, I managed to sneak that in there ;)) I want to make sure my legs are nice and fresh for next weekends race. Speaking of the race, while the boyfriend is glued to the t.v for the football games, I will be working on my marathon playlist for my ipod! If you have a favorite song that pumps you up while running, lifting, or doing anything, leave it in the comments below! I desperately need to add some new songs! It can be any genre from any year! I like it all!

Now, onto today’s recipe! What would be a week without one of my favorite types of food to make….muffins! I love them because they are quick, easy, portable and portion controlled! All things that are very important when you are short on time and in need of healthy food! I hope you enjoy these!

These were like a tropical island in your mouth! The sweetness from the banana with the chunks of mango were absolutely delicious! Adding in some shredded coconut would be absolutely amazing! Instead, I opted to top mine with some Coconut Manna for an all around tropical paradise! ?
