Cinnamon-y muffins with chopped mangoes and with superb streusel topping. Perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.

Jhuls, where do you put all the food you put into your tummy?

That’s the question I get to hear whenever I am eating with my friends. That doesn’t bother me, though. As the saying goes “be yourself“, so that was me – being myself. However, weeks after following the Whole30 rules, my tummy can’t handle much. I can’t finish meals that I thought I can. I am not complaining. I am happy that I eat lesser now. And that is the reason why I am learning how to cook and bake small batches, hoping that I won’t regret it later on. Hmm, if I do, I could do another batch. ๐Ÿ˜€

Mango Streusel Muffins

These muffins originally used peaches, but I prefer mangoes over peaches whenever a recipe calls for peaches. I used the recipe of Sally, but as I said – I used mangoes. I ‘marinated’ the mangoes with lemon, cinnamon and sugar to make sure that the mangoes are sweet enough when they are mixed with the batter. The result was amazing – the crumb topping was super crisp, the muffin was really soft. You could taste the sweet mangoes inside and that cinnamon-y flavor – oh wow! It was like muffins with a mango filling. I could make these over and over again.

I was trying to show the chopped mangoes, but I found most on the sides. The one cut has done better. ๐Ÿ˜€

Small Batch Mango Streusel Muffins


For the crumb topping:ย 

  • 34g packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 42g all purpose flour

For the muffins:

  • 110g all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 58g unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 50g light brown sugar
  • 25g white sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 60g yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 23ml milk
  • 1 cup mangoes, cubed* (please see optional instruction below)

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup (120g) confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons (45ml) heavy creamย (or milk for a less creamy texture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the crumb topping:ย 

  1. In a bowl, mix all crumb topping ingredients. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray muffin pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

For the muffins:ย 

*Optional: Since I want to make sure that the mangoes are sweet enough when they get inside the muffins, I ‘marinate’ them with 1 1/2 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp cornstarch, 1/2 tbsp lemon juice and pinch of cinnamon. So this came like a mango pie filling inside the muffins.ย 

  1. In a bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, add brown sugar and softened butter. Beat until fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add egg, yogurt, milk and vanilla. Beat for 1 minute or until well combined. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Add mangoes.
  3. Divide the batter into your muffin pan until 2/3 full. (You may get 6-8 muffins. I got 7.)
  4. Top each with the crumb topping, pressing them lightly to the batter.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Remove the muffins from the oven and leave in the muffin pan for 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack or serving plate.

For the glaze:ย 

  1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for the glaze and mix until smooth. Pour over warm muffins.

  1. Oh yummy! I love mangos and I love muffins with a streusal topping. I would definitely want to make a larger batch though as I know they’d be popular! Thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice

  2. Yummy muffins in my tummy๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
    Mangoes are an excellent choice. I would prefer them to peaches too.
    Happy hosting and a happier weekend Jhuls
    Lots of hugs and love
    Yummy muffins in my tummy๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽทtra lala la

    1. See? These muffin made you sing๐Ÿ˜‚ Glad you liked them! Thanks and I hope you are having a fab week! Advance Eid Mubarak!๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป

  3. These look really delicious and nice and moist. I have not baked with mango before, what a great idea! I bet the fruit is delicious with the spices. Fiesta Friday #

  4. Your photographs are beautiful! And oh wow, cinnamon and nutmeg in the filling, and streusal topping over mango muffins? Scrumptious. It’s rare I can get mangoes all the way from chopped to a recipe. We tend to eat them standing up at the kitchen work table, but I always try to buy enough to have for salads and baking.

  5. I love all the recipes from Sally, which is a problem. I don’t want to gain that much weight… I am sure this one is great, too.
    Now I am curious, what is this 30 rule? Sorry if this is a silly question.

    1. Hmm, I wish I could explain to you everything, but here’s what I can say: Whole30 is a clean-eating program discarding any sugar (even alternative sweeteners), bad carbs, beans and legumes, dairy, etc… You can Google Whole30 program to know more about it.๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. These muffins look SO good! It’s a good idea to make a small batch too, I’d want to have more than one or two if I made lots:) Regarding FF, do you have a preference as to what numbers you want to comment on?

  7. Ooh, these muffins look delightful! I’ve actually never baked with mangos before, but I bet the flavor is incredible – sometimes peaches can lose a bit of flavor in the baking process, so I can definitely see why you prefer mangos. Yum!

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
