Light and fluffy, and filled with fresh peaches and rolled oats, these healthy peach oatmeal muffins are a family-friendly recipe that works well as a simple breakfast or healthy snack.
Tender, juicy, and bursting with flavour, peaches are my favourite summer fruit. Not only are they absolutely delicious, but peaches are also a great source of carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals, making them a nutritious snack or great addition to any baked good, like these peach oatmeal muffins. Although you can technically use canned peaches in this recipe, fresh peaches provide a delicate texture and flavour you just can’t get from the canned variety, and they are a perfect way to showcase this fluffy, furry and flavourful seasonal fruit.
Healthy Peach Muffins
These peach muffins call for quick-cooking or rolled oats, however, I suggest quick-cooking oats because I think they provide a softer and moister texture. And you can certainly use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose if you wanted to add an extra boost of fibre. Regardless of what route you go, the fresh peaches are sure to add the perfect touch of natural sweetness and moisture to these peach oatmeal muffins.
