Monday Munchies: Fresh Peach Muffins

  Peach muffin

My MIL sent us home with some fresh peaches from their trip to St. Louis when we were visiting last weekend.  Last Sunday, I threw these together for dessert and they were very tasty.  Definitely a great use of fresh peaches!  I ate some of the leftovers last week for breakfast – they are great with chai tea!

Fresh Peach Muffins

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp flax seed mixed with 3 Tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh peaches, diced

Topping:

  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.  In a small bowl, combine flax seed and water and stir.  Combine all wet ingredients (including flax) in a large bowl and stir well.  Add sugar, then flours, and baking soda and stir until just combined.  Fold in the diced peaches.  Scoop 3/4 full into 12 prepared muffin cups.  Combine topping ingredients in a small bowl and distribute evenly over the muffins.  Bake for 20-25 minutes. 

All three kiddos approved!
