Hey there, The thick batter also threw me off, but like Sonia N. said, the batter loosens up after you add the fruit. I used a harvest spice mix instead of cinnamon (a blend pf cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) and all brown sugar because I didn't have any white (loosely packed cup). Also did half wild blueberries, half peaches, turned out awesome! Made exactly 12.
Sarah M's review needs to be deleted! This is by far the best peach baked good I have ever tasted! At first I was skeptical because of how thick the batter was but once I added the fresh peaches it loosened up. In 1 hour it baked perfectly and I had a piece cut off before it even cooled all the way. Please try this recipe, you won't be sorry you did.

~ I wasn't really a fan of the peach chunks....So, I popped them into my food processor & let it go until they were the consistency of ??sauce! This helps the peaches to be distributed evenly throughout the batter! ~ I use pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon & it warmed then up nicely. ~ You can add your favorite streusel topping to the tops of the muffins before putting them in the oven & it just makes them taste even better & I didn't think that was possible!!! Enjoy!!! ??Yum!!!
These muffins are great and easy to make...not sure what happened with Sarah M. when she made them. They are moist and delicious...I'm freezing some to have on hand. Will also make some of the batter as bread (I have LOTS of peaches to deal with and was looking for something other than canning.) I also used walnuts instead of almonds. Love this recipe.
