Whole Grain Maple Peach Muffins

These lightly sweet muffins are loaded with the good stuff. Whole grains, chunks of peach and maple syrup make them a breakfast dream come true.

      Start your day off right with oatmeal, whole wheat, maple syrup and peaches in muffin form. They are perfect with a cup of coffee or tea. Muffins freeze great as well so you can make them now and enjoy the extras later!

     I originally developed and shared this recipe back in 2015. It was the perfect solution for having an easy breakfast for the guys while I was out of town.

     This year I had some yummy local peaches that were lingering just a tad too long. So I turned back to this recipe to solve that problem as well.

    Is it just me or are peaches a little like avocados in that they turn from hard to super soft in the blink of an eye. You wait and wait for them to be perfect and one day later they are past their prime.

    Luckily peaches are perfect for baking no matter what. They can be used a little bit hard or a little too soft, obviously within reason.

     So I took a couple of softer peaches and diced them up for these muffins. It had been a while since I made them, so it was fun to get back to this recipe.

     They were as good as I remembered them to be. Plus way more nutritious than your general muffin.

    The final texture almost reminds me of a cross between my favorited soft baked oatmeal recipes and a standard muffin. They are sweet enough, but not dessert level sweet.

   So I highly recommend you whip some up.  I'll let you take a peek at the original post from 2015 in case you're curious. I couldn't bare to take the picture of little Little Dude out!

   Have you noticed a theme lately?  Apparently I love baking with whole grains, fruit and my bestest baking buddy, Little Dude!

     Don't mind the sweaty hair.  We had just come in from playing outside and this kid knows how to play hard!

    I was getting ready to go out of town for the week for work, so I wanted something wholesome and easy for my husband and Little Dude to have for breakfast.

    I figured some muffins would fit the bill.  We have been on a peach kick lately, so I figured we might as well go with it.

   He loves them and anything we have put them in so far.  Plus we got to make them together which meant a little extra mommy-son bonding time before I left.

    They came out really moist and plenty fluffy.  They weren't heavy like you  might think a whole grain muffin would be.

    Plus the whole wheat flour and oatmeal really complimented the maple syrup we used to sweeten the batter.  The result was even better than I had envisioned.

    The boys and I each had one right out of the oven. My husband even had a second one (those of you who know him know that is really saying something!)

  The rest were ready each morning for a grab and go breakfast while mommy was gone.

More tasty muffins!
