Peach muffins recipe

Every year comes June I go to an uncontrolled phase where I buy peaches by the LBS, like a lot of LBS. The way I see it since my geographic location is known for growing peaches, it is my responsibility to support the farmers around me.

And since peaches are so delicious it would be a shame not to let my baker instinct some room. I can’t say that muffins are the invention of the wheel but these Peach muffins do taste like something out of this world.

Also, it is super easy and fast to make, just 10 minutes and no mixer.

    So Yummmy!

    • thank you Charlotte!

    • Hello!
      I would lile to try this recipe, but my husband is intolerant to vaccine milk.. can you suggest, if it is possible, what I can use to replace sour cream and butter?
      Thank you so much!

      • Hi Valentina!
        So, scientifically speaking you can replace the butter with vegan butter and the sour cream with unsweetened apple sauce. HOWEVER, please please please know that I did not test a non-dairy version and it is very hard for me to give you the go-ahead when it comes to flavors. If you feel comfortable replacing ingredients with the above recommendations, please bake first the recipe as is so you can get the right impression (it freezes very well). Hope that helps.

    These were so so delicious!! Can’t wait to try more recipes similar to this one. I highly recommend making the cinnamon glaze for topping as well!
