Ever since I can remember, peaches have been a special treat. This beautiful, golden fruit has such a delicate yet fabulous flavor. Soft and juicy, sweet but not overly so.

These muffins, brought to us by Karalie, are a wonderful way to feast upon peaches. Not only are they scrumptious, they’re nutritious as well! Whole wheat flour, natural sugar, and yogurt make this a treat you can feel good about eating or sharing.

Let me show you how to make them!

Here’s what you’ll need: whole wheat flour, quick cooking oats, turbinado (I used maple) sugar, baking powder, salt, an egg, peach or vanilla yogurt, butter, vanilla extract, and peaches.

First off, preheat your oven to 400°F. Grease a muffin tin or line it with papers. Put the flour, oats, sugar, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.

The recipe didn’t call for it but I added a bit of salt to enhance the flavors. Whisk it all together until well-mixed.

Peel and chop the peaches. Aren’t they pretty?

In a separate mixing bowl, lightly whisk the egg. Add the yogurt, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well-combined.

Add the peaches and gently fold them in.

Spoon into the prepared muffin tin. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until they test done. Cool in the pan 10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Spread with butter.

Notes:
1. As mentioned above, I added a bit of salt to the recipe to enhance the flavor of the muffins. 
2. I found these muffins to be a bit dense. Next time I may add a little milk, some baking soda, or a little more baking powder to the batter.
3. These freeze beautifully. Simply place cooled leftover muffins in a freezer bag. Defrost on the counter, or in the oven if you like your muffins warm.

I am going 50 miles down the road to see my 9-month old granddaughter who is of course the most brilliant, beautiful baby ever born!

Since our grandbabies will be going to visit their other grandparents, we will spend a quite weekend at home with our three fur babies, Princess, Paris, & Smeagol.

Painting and plumbing are the plans. Painting my grandparents two story 100 year old farmhouse that I proudly inherited. I can feel it starting to smile as I am coating it with bright white paint underneath its green metal roof. Soon it will be wearing green shutters to enhance its beauty. During breaks from the ladder, I will be assisting my talented husband with the plumbing. I think I like painting better. I guess I am putting the “labor” in Labor Day. Have a GREAT Holiday!

I will be painting my bathroom Benjamin Moore #138 Vivid Beauty…..I have been wanting to paint it since the beginning of the summer when I saw this wonderful orange/peach color at a beach house…..Have a great holiday!
