My newest muffin recipe is a peach muffin with an oatmeal topping. I found this recipe from a great site called two peas and their pod. It’s a site worth checking out.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup cane sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk or milk with 1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup melted butter, cooled
1/4 cup honey
1 large egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 peaches cut into small cubes, skin removed

Topping
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 tbsp whole wheat flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 tbsp. cold butter cut into chunks
1 tbsp honey

DIRECTIONS
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 cup muffin tin tray.
Mix flour, sugars, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together. In a separate bowl mix milk, butter, honey, egg and vanilla. Slowly whisk milk mixture into flour mixture until well blended. Fold in peaches.
For the topping place oatmeal, flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter in a bowl. Use your fingers to blend the mixture well. Add honey until blended.
Scoop 3/4 of the mixture into muffin cups and then add oatmeal topping. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then place on a cooling rack.
Enjoy!

3 ripe mashed bananas
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray and line 12 cup muffin tray. Beat sugar, oil, flax, vanilla and eggs together. Sift flours, salt, baking soda. Slowly mix sugar mixture into flour mixture. Beat mashed bananas into mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill 3/4 muffin cups with batter. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool and place on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
