Peach Oatmeal Muffins

(12 servings)

  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh peaches - pitted and diced
  • 1 and 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar - packed
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease or paper line a dozen muffin cups.

In a large bowl, mix together oats, buttermilk, brown sugar, applesauce, molasses and eggs.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder.

Stir flour mixture into eggs mixture until just moistened. Fold in peaches. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each cup a little past the half-way point.

Bake for 15 minutes.

While muffins are baking, prepare the topping: Combine 2 Tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.

Remove muffins from oven and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Return to oven and bake for 3 more minutes.

Make sure you use fresh peaches. I tried this once with frozen and the muffins came out too soggy.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank BethH for this recipe.
