Low-Fat Papaya Coconut Muffins

I'm a huge fan of Gina over at Skinny Taste.  Her blog site is one of my go-to sites for healthy recipes.  While browsing her site I stumbled upon this recipe and knew that I had to make it because I'm always drawn to the tropical flavors!

Low-Fat Papaya Coconut Muffins

  • 1 cup papaya puree
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup Domino Light Sugar/Stevia Blend (or 1/2 cup sugar)
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 egg whites, beaten
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t coconut extract
  • 2 T melted butter or margarine

  2. Puree the papaya in a blender until smooth
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well
  4. Stir in coconut and mix until combined
  5. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract, coconut extract and pureed papaya
  6. Add the the wet mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended
  7. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

Deliciously packed tropical breakfast muffin in the papaya flavor.  I have since added mango coconut muffins to my growing list of Recipes To Make.  Can't wait to see how they turn out!
