Tropical Muffins

Summer is such a wonderful time for fruit!  So why not take advantage of the delicious mangoes in season right now!  These muffins are packed with vitamins and minerals and are perfect for a mid-morning snack at school or at work.  The chia/flax seeds provide omega-3 fats which have anti-inflammatory properties and can protect against cancer and depression.  And they are super easy to make!
