Strawberry Peach Muffins

Strawberry Peach MuffinsThis is a versatile muffin recipe where you can swap out the fruit for other add-ins like blueberries or chocolate chips.  As is, the muffins are not super sweet.  If you want a sweeter muffin you’ll need to use about 3/4-1c sugar or honey instead of 1/2c.  Topped with fresh fruit, they are perfectly sweet enough as is for my family.

 

Ingredients

  • 2c all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2c honey or sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1c almond milk (can use regular milk)
  • 1/4c vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2c chopped strawberries
  • 1/2c chopped peaches

Directions

  1. If using honey, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  If using sugar, preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, (and sugar if using instead of honey).  Leave a well in the center of the mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl combine honey, beaten egg, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring gently until moistened.  There will be lumps.
  5. Stir in strawberries and peaches until just combined, do not over mix.
  6. Pour batter into lined muffin tins and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Once cooled to a warm temperature, serve topped with fresh fruit.

Recipe makes 12 muffins.
