These were really yummy and quick to throw together. I was very tempted to add spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, whatever) but I'm glad I didn't; these really have nice flavor on their own. I used Smart Balance for the butter, and used only 1/3 c sugar as we don't like super sweet muffins. Even that much was about our limit, so if you don't like a lot of sweetness I'd back off the full amount of sugar. I also used plain yogurt for the sour cream, and half ww flour and half oat flour. Thanks for posting! Made for PRMR.
Great recipe. I made these today for guests and was thrilled at how they turned out. I followed the recipe exactly except that I diced the peaches instead of chopped, and if I make them again (very likely) I will do that. I also will double the recipe so that there are some left over!
Wow, iewe, these muffins are so yummy! I made them for breakkie this morning using fresh nectarines instead of peaches, cause thats what I had on hand. They turned out so moist and flavourful, that I was lucky to get a pic, cause they disappeared so fast. ;) Like boomette, I also had to add some liquid to the batter, cause it was rather stiff, but then the muffins baked perfectly. I subbed all whole spelt flour for the ap, cause I was out of that. That way my muffins were a little more on the heavy side, but still turned out fabulous. YUM! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely treat with us. I will certainly make it again as long as I can get my hands on fresh fruit. Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag June 09.
