You know when you want to bake something yummy but just don’t feel like putting forth too much effort? Or you want something warm and cozy for breakfast but also healthy-ish? Or if you’re like me and stocked up on the last peaches of the season and are wondering how to implement them into yet another recipe—this one’s for you kid! These peach and almond breakfast muffins are easy to make, subtlety sweet, nutty and downright delightful. Eat them straight out of the oven or with a little “butter” or butter. Perhaps drizzle some honey or maple syrup over the top for some added sweetness?!

If peach season is over for you, you could sub any fruit of your choice—diced apples, blueberries, raspberries torn in half, chocolate chips anyone??? This recipe was inspired by Sprouted Kitchen’s Stonefruit + Yogurt Muffins—Sara uses eggs and regular yogurt which would also work in this adapted recipe.

Bon Appetit!
