Banana Peach Whole Wheat Muffins

I bought peaches which were not super sweet, and I had ripe bananas on the counter.  Both the peaches and bananas were waiting to be used… and this recipe was born!  This is a delicious and healthy muffin, which celebrates the bounty of summer.   Don’t be scared off by the combination of banana and peaches; they are great together.  My kids loved them too. 

Banana Peach Whole Wheat Muffins

Pre-heat the oven to 350*.  Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners and set aside. 

In a large bowl, combine:

2 c. white whole wheat flour

2 c. oats

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

dash salt

In a different bowl, combine:

2 mashed bananas

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/4 c. orange juice

9.5 oz natural applesauce (I use three applesauce squeeze pouches, which is a total of 9.5 oz.  This is just over 1 cup/8 oz)

1/2 c. oil (I use canola oil)

3/4 c. honey

1 tsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Mix all the wet ingredients together till blended. 

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing just till all the ingredients are incorporated together. 

To the batter, add 2 1/2 c. diced peaches. The peaches you use should be ripe but still firm.  Fold the diced peaches into the batter. 

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.  Bake on 350* for about 20-23 minutes, till dry.

Yield: 2 dozen standard size muffins. 

Remove from oven and cool the muffins on wire racks. 

Happy baking, b’tayavon and enjoy!

    Hi Michal!
    Do suggest peeling the skin off of the peaches for this recipe ?

      No need to peel the peaches first. I did not and they were delicious!
