Peach Muffins from Yummy, Healthy, Easy

Hi there! I'm Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy. I'm super excited to be here at Love and Laundry today! 

So I recently ventured out to the local farmer's market with all four of my boys in tow. Yep, I'm crazy like that. I brought an extra large Diet Coke with me so I had energy to deal with them all (ha!). It was a beautiful day and I was surprised at how much my boys enjoyed looking at the booths and produce. We ended up buying a lot of goodies, including a huge bag of amazing freshly-picked peaches.

Which leads me to this yummy recipe. I have a serious sweet tooth but try to eat healthy, so I find myself making a lot of muffins instead of desserts. I guess I find it easier to make them somewhat healthified (is that a word?!). Anyway, these muffins are amazing. They're moist and the peach flavor is awesome. Every time I make them, I lick the batter from the bowl. Y-U-M. You can substitute applesauce in place of the butter and if you're not a huge peach fan, use berries in place of the peaches. My boys and husband love these and I hope you will too! They're the perfect summer breakfast or treat!
