Peach Oatmeal Muffins

Peach Oatmeal Muffins

What to make when you have a fridge full of peaches and a late morning playdate? How about these muffins. I did a Pinterest search for peach muffins and I found these little gems. They were fast to make, and are deliciously light yet also dense if that is really possible. I decided to sub coconut oil for the butter, and it was a delicious decision. Feel free to use butter if you can't stand the hint of coconut that the oil imparts. My kids loved these, as did our little one-year-old guest.

  • -1 cup all-purpose flour
  • -1 cup rolled oats
  • -1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • -2 teaspoons baking powder
  • -1/2 teaspoon salt
  • -1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled, or 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • -1 cup sour cream (I only had 1/2 cup, so I added 1/2 cup buttermilk to that with great results)
  • -1 large egg, beaten
  • -1 cup chopped peaches (I peeled mine first due to my kids' preferences, but it would be so pretty to leave the skins on

          -Cinnamon Sugar for the topping (If you need to make some, mix 1/4 cup sugar with 1 T cinnamon)

In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together butter (or coconut oil), sour cream (or buttermilk or milk would work, too. Bet Greek yogurt is another great sub) and egg. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Add peaches and gently toss to combine. Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin tray. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar.  Bake at 400 degrees for 16-18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. 

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
