These were fairly easy to make, and smelled wonderful when baking. I do think the spices seemed to overwhelm the peach flavor, however I was a couple of TBS short of peaches so possibly that was problem. The texture was more muffin like than the cakelike muffins I am used to making. I think I will try again with more peaches and less spice.

Peach season has just started here, and even though they are still a bit expensive, I just couldn't wait and had to try these muffins. I used all brown sugar, and cut back on the cinnamon, since some family members are not fans. I chopped the peaches into as small pieces as I could manage while getting them to keep their shape, and made these into mini muffins. The smell was heavenly while they were baking. My youngest took a few with her to school yesterday and was mobbed! I can't wait until my peach tree starts giving me fruit (usually in August) so I can have some home-grown muffins! Great recipe, Kree!

Delicious and perfect for breakfast! These seem to be a bit healthier than most breakfast muffins with very simple easy-to-follow directions. I think these will also work out well with canned/frozen peaches in the winter. Thanks Kree for sharing this keeper muffin recipe. We will be having these again -- next time I will try them with frozen peaches though.
