Peach Muffins

It has been so so hot here in Texas. I lived in California for 10 years and we know it is pretty hot there BUT the humidity here in Texas makes everything worse. Plus there are some big bugs flying around all the time and do not even look at my arms or legs, every morning  I woke up with new bug bites. It is something that I am having a hard time to get used to for sure. Also, If I don’t bake super early in the morning there is no way that I’m turning my oven on. Even though we have the AC on all the time, everything melts and gets sticky very fast lol. I cannot wait to go to Peru next month where I will be able to cool down for a couple of weeks. Yes! I am planning to go visit my parents and have some family time with them.

I bought some peaches last week so I decided to create something easy that would go really well with your morning cup of Joe. Muffins packed with vanilla extract and chopped peaches with a crunchy top.

For this recipe is better to use fresh peaches but if you don’t feel like peeling them, just get canned peaches, just be sure to soak all the liquid from those peaches (you can use paper towel) otherwise your muffins will take longer to bake and they will be a bit soggy.

Why making this recipe:


*just a few ingredients

*you don’t need a mixer

*they look pretty

*they taste delicious

Let’s start with the recipe and if you would to see how I made them, don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, you will find a video there.
