A Better Recipe: Fresh Peach Muffins

Posted: August 30, 2011 at 1:16 pm

I never officially thanked you all for the prayers, thoughts, and encouragement for my mom and myself. I wish I could send you each a batch of fresh peach muffins to even begin to show my gratitude.

Instead, I will do the best I can manage and type the words “thank you”, hope the feeling  expresses itself well enough, and give you a recipe for the peach muffins instead.

The muffins are basically an adaptation of my Lemon Raspberry Muffins. I followed that recipe but subbed out some things to make them peach instead of lemon and berry. As a standard in the blog world you should NEVER re-post someone’s recipe in full when subbing out only a few of the ingredients.

Well, this is my own recipe… so I’m reposting even with only a few substitutions. Besides, it might be good to put to use some of the recipe creation tips I learned at Healthy Living Summit. I learned such tips as not breaking a recipe up with pictures, being more specific in the ingredients and recipe details. Note: I also learned I’m a recipe train wreck and thankful I’m not a food blogger in one fell swoop.

I may not share recipes in the most helpful way…and I may not share many of them..but, by golly, you better believe any recipe I put up on this here blog is worth trying! And yes, that “by golly” just happened.

Fresh Peach Muffins

Wholesome, yet light – these muffins make a great item for a quick breakfast or even a grab-and-go snack. Made with whole wheat pastry flour, a high fiber stevia baking blend, and applesauce instead of oil, these muffins taste like their sugar and fat laden counterparts, but satisfy more on taste, quality, and nutrition. You can make many variations of this same recipe using different fruits or yogurts. Also, feel free to use sugar or another form of sweetener instead of stevia or a mix of whole wheat and all purpose flours if you don’t have whole wheat pastry flour. Happy baking!

Servings: 12 muffins
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients
1/2 cup NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend (or sugar/sweetener of choice)
1/2 cup peach flavored Greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 fresh peach, diced into 1/2” chunks

Step-By-Step
Preheat oven to 400. Coat a muffin tray with non-stick cooking spray. Add the stevia baking blend (or sweetener of choice), yogurt, almond milk, applesauce, egg, and vanilla extract to a mixing bowl. Stir until combined. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until evenly combined. Do not overmix. Gently fold in the diced piece chunks. Spoon batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 15 minutes until tops start to brown.

Yep. I’m definitely not a food/recipe blogger. But I am a food lover…and I love these. Hope you will too! Smile

  1. Mmmm…I bet these are delicious! Fresh peaches are so juicy right now – I might just have to give these a try! :-)

  2. Yum! These look amazing. We’ve been going through baskets and baskets of peaches this summer and I was thinking about looking for a muffin recipe to make when my parents come for a visit next weekend – thanks!!

  3. Khushboo says:

    As a fellow food lover, I thank you for this delicious-sounding recipe :)

  4. These look awesome!! And apparently I’m a recipe train wreck because ALL of mine are broken up with pictures! Whoops :D

  5. I think peaches are incredibly under appreciated in baking. These look soo good Tina! Just saw your tweet that your mom is doing a bit better, so glad to hear that!

  6. I love peach season! Definetly my favourite and most fruit this month! Love the peach chunks in the muffins :)

  7. I haven’t had power for the last several days so I didn’t get to comment on the post about your mom, but I wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my prayers and I hope that she recovers soon!

  8. I’m not sure I’ve ever had peach muffins! They look delicious!!

  9. These look wonderful Tina! Sending good thought to you, your Mom and your whole fam!

  10. Those look great – my hubby LOVES peaches… Thank you for posting! xoxo from Trinidad

  11. I’m kind of glad I wasn’t at that conference — they probably used my recipes as examples of “bad recipes”. Oh well.

    These look great Tina!

  12. These look super yummy! I like the huge chunks of peach, just waiting to burst in your mouth!
    How IS your mom doing?

    • Tina says:

      Still pretty much the same. I’m waiting on some updates myself. Seems like the testing results are taking FOREVER.

  13. Peaches in anything are the best. Thanks for the recipe. I’m thinking of your family and keeping them in my prayers.

  14. Kelly says:

    Peach muffins sound awesome!!! If I liked baking I would totally make these or go buy them somewhere.

  15. These look yummy. My husband would love me even more than he already does if I made him these. :)

  16. If these are anywhere near as good as your Lemon Raspberry ones, I’m already sold. ;)
    Nice job incorporating the new recipe tips! I just posted a recipe the other day and totally forgot to pay attention to half of them…whoops!

  17. I just made these Tina (with a few substitutions) and oh my goodness…they are DELICIOUS!!!

    I ate one right out of the oven and wow! Thanks for a great recipe!

  18. jobo says:

    YUM! I want to make these right now!! They look SO good! I still have your lemon raspberry muffins bookmarked to make soon too :)

  19. Heather says:

    Yum! I was just trying to come up with something healthy to bring in to work! Thanks!

  20. Maren says:

    I made a different recipe for peach muffins about a week ago and peach muffins are so good. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

  21. Ela says:

    Sounds like an awesome recipe: they’ve got crates of peaches on sale right now, I may just have to get some and try!

    Recently, your blog comment form stopped ‘remembering’ who I am, so every time I comment, I have to type all my details in anew. Do you have any idea why this is?
    thanks!

    • Tina says:

      It’s because we never figured out why it was randomly filling in the info of other people. I didn’t feel right having someone’s personal email pop up on someone else’s screen so stopped the “cache”-ing that auto fills. I’ll ask Peter if he thinks it is safe to turn back on yet. :)

  22. Sarah says:

    Peach muffins…you’re a true Georgia girl :) I really hope that your mother is doing better!

  23. Amy Lauren says:

    Those look yummy! Pretty sure I will be making them soon, haha. I’m also planning to make your peanut butter cookies for a 3 hour meeting we have at work on Thursday (we bring food and snacks to the long meetings). Plus peaches are local and also cheap right now too :) .

  24. Oh my goodness- healthy peach muffins for the end of summer! I can’t wait to try these! :) Nice pictures too! I noticed your putting the little Faith, Fitness, Fun on your pictures. Is that easy to do before posting? I like it! I always look forward to your posts Tina! :)

    • Tina says:

      It’s SUPER easy with Picasa. Just click add watermark when you upload pics. Also – in Windows Live Writer (the most recent updated version) has a watermark option you can use to easily add one as well. Love both!

  25. Those muffins look delish! I have a box of nectarines to use up and I am guessing they would sub fine for peaches!? :)

  26. The way you lay out your recipe works for me, and the pictures are great!

  27. Jen says:

    YUM!!! I wish you could send me some of these through the airwaves! :)

  28. Tina- these look so good! I am loving baked goods lately and this is a great recipe to add to my repetoire! Thank you :)

    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted
    to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    awesome blog!

  32. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on social media
    programs. Regards

  33. I got this web site from my pal who told me regarding this site and at the moment
    this time I am visiting this web site and reading very informative
    content at this time.

  34. I do agree with all of the concepts you’ve presented in your post.

    They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the
    posts are very brief for beginners. Could you please
    lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject
    but I just had to ask. Cheers!

    signal. Will probaby be again to get more. Thanks
