Mango Tahini Muffins

The other day I was snacking on some dried mango and wanted to add something to it, and I had some tahini in my cupboard, so I thought I’d try that, and it was surprisingly very tasty together! So I added that flavor combination to my list of baking ideas, and after finishing my exam yesterday, I tested out this recipe for vegan mango tahini muffins, and they turned out so tasty! It is a mix of tropical and a bit nutty-slash-earthy! I shared these with a bunch of my classmates, and they all thought the muffins were really good, which means my recipe was a success!



Makes 24-30 mini muffins or 15-20 full-sized muffins


1 mango, diced (about ¾ cup)

¾ cups tahini

3-4 tbsp honey or maple syrup (to sweeten, as desired)

2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flax meal mixed with 5-6 tbsp water, refrigerate for about 5 minutes until thickened)

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cut oat milk

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 tsp almond extract (optional, omit for nut-free)

Good shake of cinnamon (measure with your heart)

Dash of nutmeg (optional)

3 tsp baking powder


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare flax egg and set aside in the fridge.

2. Mix together all batter ingredients, except the mango, in a large bowl.

3. Mix in the mango.

4. Line a muffin tin with muffin papers and/or spray with cooking oil. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling each cup about 80-90% full - leave space at the top for the muffins to rise!

5. Bake for about 15 minutes for mini muffins, 20-25 minutes for full-sized muffins, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the edges are slightly golden brown. Let cool, and enjoy!

P.S - you can also make these in donut form with the same recipe!
