It seemed ideal to take those squishier peaches and book them to good use in some baking. And I seem to be really into this fruit muffin thing lately. I posted these Strawberry Muffins just last month, and the Banana Muffins a few months ago. Plus I bought zucchinis today with the sole intention of turning them into zucchini bread, so that's probably not too far behind.
Check out how moist that little darling is! Absolutely amazing. I threw in some chopped green apples in this one, hence the not-orange-bits. We had one lone apple that was past it's prime so I thought I'd give it a new life. The recipe below just uses peaches, but of course you can swap in other fruits too (mangoes would be AWESOME!). Be adventurous!
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
cinnamon and allspice to taste
1/3 cup apple sauce
3 TB vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup peaches, peeled, pitted, and chopped (about 3 peaches)
This follows the same pattern as most muffin recipes- mix your dry ingredients in one bowl, mix your wet + sugar in another, then add the fruit. Make sure to peel and chop whatever fruit you use. I used 2 peaches and 1 green apple.
If you don't have applesauce, you can use 1/2 cup vegetable oil. I just keep a large jar in my fridge so I have it for replacing oil in baking so it's an easy healthy swap I can always do.
Preheat your oven to 350. Grease and flour your muffin tin. Fill cups 2/3 full with batter and bake for 15-20 minutes of until lightly brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
