MAKE-AHEAD PEACH MUFFINS

If you want to make these muffins ahead of time, they freeze very well. It’s especially great if you make a double batch of the muffins. Then you can serve some the day of and save the rest for up to 6 months. 

  • Start by flash freezing the Peach Muffins for an hour while still in the muffin tin. 
  • Once they’re frozen solid, transfer the muffins to a freezer bag. Flash freezing them will ensure they don’t freeze together.

TIPS FOR MAKING PEACH MUFFINS

  • Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and then line the muffin tin with paper muffin liners. 
  • Wet Ingredients: Add the sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to a large bowl or stand mixer. If it’s in a stand mixer set the mixer to its lowest speed and mix until smooth. It will only take about 30 seconds. Mixing it by hand may take longer, just stir until smooth. 
  • Dry ingredients: Slowly sift in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to the wet ingredients. Mix them into the wet ingredients. Be careful not to overmix at this step. Keep the mixer on its lowest speed. Finally, fold in the chopped peaches. 
  • Bake: Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin liners to about ¾ full. Put in the oven for 20-22 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the center of one of the muffins to make sure they’re done baking. If it comes out without any batter on the toothpick then the muffins are done baking.

  • Gluten-free: For dietary needs, you can make Gluten-Free Peach Muffins. Just replace the flour with almond flour, oat flour, buckwheat flour, or arrowroot flour. 
  • Fruit: Along with the peaches in the recipe you can mix in other fruits like raspberries, cranberries, or blueberries.

    1. I’m sure you can use whole wheat flour, as for the maple syrup, I’m not too sure how that would affect the recipe.

  1. I used Maple Syrup and coconut oil and my dry ingredients was 1 1/2 cup bisquick.
    OMGosh these are amazing. (I used my neighbors home grown peaches) So good!!!

  2. I doubled this recipe and used 2 cups peaches and 1 cup raspberries (both fresh and chopped small). They are out of this world! The best muffins I have ever tasted! I’ve made them twice in one week and have gifted some. Everyone raves about how delicious they are.

  3. Wow, peaches! This Peach muffin recipe is best for breakfast when you’re on the go for work and also for snacks with my friends and family. Thanks for the recipe!
