Moist and scrumptious MANGO ALMOND MUFFINS! I have made these a few times already for family and friends and they all love these!

Hello everyone! I am back in the US! I had a 2-month long vacation in the Philippines, particularly in Manila, which explains why I haven’t posted much on this blog for a while.

I wanted to take a break from blogging and get the chance to truly enjoy my family’s company. I had such a lovely time and it felt like time was so short despite being there for several weeks. Indeed, time always flies when you’re having fun!

Well, it wasn’t all pleasure for this trip.  In fact, the reason why I stayed that long was so I could attend the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education seminar.

The MCLE is a requirement I needed to fulfill so I can maintain good standing in the Philippine bar.

In case you didn’t know yet, I am a lawyer by profession. I didn’t want to lose my license to practice law in the Philippines as I worked so hard to achieve it so if that meant attending the MCLE, then let it be.

Nonetheless, in between the legal seminars, I made it a point to cook some delicious recipes for you that all involved ingredients from Manila.

Of course, when it comes to fruits – the Philippine mangoes remain supreme. It was but natural to use these fresh and uber-sweet mangoes to bake something yummy.

The results are these moist and scrumptious Mango Almond Muffins. I have given these away as a present for my friends and my mom’s fellowship group.

I am happy to report that they have all enjoyed this! Make sure to use the freshest and ripest mango you can find so you get the best fruity muffins ever! 🙂

    I am very impressed with you keeping it up with your profession in Manila. I am also a trained lawyer and was admitted to the Bar after grueling exams and internships at another country. Upon my move to the States, unfortunately, I stopped practicing it. I am in my 60's now and I regret that decision. Please do not quit. Continue. It is very hard work and a great accomplishment. Take time out as needed to keep your licence active. Best regards,
    Selma

      Awww, it is so nice to read your comment, Selma. I don't practice at the moment though I keep my license active just in case. I have small kids so I have decided to be a stay-at-home-mom for now. Anyway, I do some food blogging on the side as a hobby as well. Anyway, am sure, even if you didn't decide to pursue law – just the training would have been helpful in any other field. That's what I found at least in my case. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Abby, another delightful muffin recipe! It's mango season here in Australia, I have to try these. It is a great idea to top them with almonds, Yum Yum!

      Hi Georgina! I love Australian mangoes! I remember how yummy they were when we had them way back in 2003 when we went there for our honeymoon. I do hope you enjoy the recipe! Thanks for stopping by!

    Haven’t made your delicious recipe for a while, but came across a ‘Mango Vanilla Cream’ Balkan style yogurt this past weekend, and as you suggested used yogurt instead of the sour cream. I then added about a 1/2 cup of sweetened shredded coconut I had on hand ~ wow ~ thank you, thank you for your recipe!

    These muffins are always in by rotation for co-workers. Using the Mango yogurt in lieu of sour cream, and the addition of shredded coconut is now a must for them – Thanks for sharing Abigail.
