Peaches and Cream Oatmeal Muffins

Our family moved last week so our meals have been a bit strange as I try to locate where all of our kitchen supplies are and get the fridge restocked.  I picked up some Ontario peaches at my local supermarket and was looking forward to the freshness that only in season peaches bring.  Like corn on the cob, peaches are one of those foods that remind me of the end of summer.  I love eating them over the sink and slurping up their juicy goodness!

These muffins are a perfect way to use slightly underripe peaches and make a delicious snack or lunchbox treat. If your peaches aren’t ripe when you buy them check out my tip to ripen peaches evenly.

Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups half and half
  • 1¼ cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp grated lemon rind
  • 1½ cups fresh, peeled and chopped peaches (or drained canned peaches)
  • Topping:
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • ¼ tsp grated lemon rind
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. In a bowl combine milk and oats and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon, set aside.
  4. In another bowl wish egg, brown sugar, butter, vanilla and lemon rind and pour over oat mixture.
  5. Add dry mixture and mix until combined.
  6. Top with peaches and stir in.
  7. Spoon mixture into muffin cups.
  8. Mix topping and crumble over the top of the muffins.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  10. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in muffin tin and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The amount of crumble topping you want to include is up to you and if you’d prefer not to cover the top of your muffins in sugar this recipe is delicious without the crumble.  ready for the oven peaches and cream muffins

The freshness of the peaches in these muffins, even after baking is really remarkable.  Absolutely delicious!
