Peach Almond Muffins

Peach Almond Muffins make great breakfast muffins. These dandy muffins are moist, full of flavor, have great texture and crunch, and they’re not all that difficult to make. In my book, that’s a winner! The muffins are filled with fresh peaches providing a nice, fruity flavor, but they’re flavored with almond extract in the batter and almonds on top with granulated sugar sprinkled over all so that makes almost a streusel-like topping.

The batter is exquisite and puffs up beautifully while baking. I loved the way Peach Almond Muffins turned out. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that I enjoy both peach and almond flavors, and both flavors work extremely well together. I’m sure, for those of you who enjoy a lot of nuts, you could also add some additional almonds in the batter as well.

I know you’re probably tired of peach recipes by now. Sorry! 🙁  I should be finished posting all of them by next week and then we can move on to something else! Most of the recent peach recipes were made two months ago, and I am only now getting around to getting them all posted. It’s hard sometimes when you’re a food blogger not to allow food and recipes to totally consume your life! I’ve finally given myself permission to make recipes that I don’t always need to photograph whether for ourselves or others. It takes a lot of extra time to do so, and with our recent move, time has been in short supply!

Additionally,  I’ve been going through a lot of my first year blog recipes and remaking those foods so I can get better pictures of everything because they were so dreadful. (Yikes!) 🙁  Double whoa! Even though I’ve been trying to remake about 15-20 recipes a month (sometimes more), it will take me another year probably to get through remaking all of them. Even still, I do try to make new recipes (or old recipes I’ve not posted on my blog) a couple of times each week, so there’s plenty to choose from.

Every now and then I come up with a great new creation and this is certainly one of them. I loved the way these muffins turned out. If you enjoy peaches and almonds you’re sure to love these jewels. They’re great for breakfast, daytime snacks or to serve alongside soup or salad! Plus, if you’re a peach fiend like I am, you’ll drool over anything made with peaches. 🙂 Peach Almond Muffins are no exception.

      Oh, thank you, Kim. I try really hard. I’d like to invest in a better macro lens but don’t want to cough up $1,000 at the moment. 🙁 Hope you give these muffins a try. They were a winner. 🙂
