Tropical Mango-Coconut Quinoa Muffins
Studded with fresh mangos and flaked coconut, these muffins are a welcome escape to the tropics. I've loaded them with quinoa too - using toasted quinoa flour and quinoa flakes to truly turn them into quinoa muffins :)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
Whisk together dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, beat together banana, milk, egg and oil. Add to dry and mix until smooth. Fold in diced mangos.
Spoon batter into muffin tins, filling ¾ full. Bake on center rack for 25 - 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven, let cool for 3 - 5 minutes in the pan. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
