Peachy Peach Muffins

Fresh peaches are in season right now in our neck of the woods, therefore it’s the perfect time to make these luscious Peachy Peach Muffins!

Ripe, juicy, fresh peaches are always a tasty treat. Last week my parents purchased a bushel basket of fresh peaches at a local open-air market and were kind enough to share their bounty with us. Although I love eating a fresh peach straight from the tree, I also enjoy a fabulous recipe that includes peaches.

First of all, it’s always fun experimenting with a recipe, so I whipped-up two separate batches of muffins and placed the batter in two separate non-stick muffin tins. One batch of muffins were made using all-purpose flour and the other batch was made using gluten free flour.

I’m extremely pleased that these muffins turned out delicious using either flour. Peachy Peach Muffins made with all-purpose flour turned out a little lighter, while the gluten free muffins were somewhat heavier. Seems this is often the case whenever comparing baked products made with wheat flour vs gluten free flour. As a result, either version received “two thumbs up” during a taste-testing trial by my husband.

In conclusion, both sets of Peachy Peach Muffins turned out to be moist and loaded with chunks of fresh peaches. Additionally, you can easily tweak this recipe by stirring in a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts into the batter for even more flavor.

Fresh peaches easily bruise and quickly spoil so this recipe is a fabulous way to keep from throwing them out. 

Happy baking!
