Easy recipe for Peach Pecan Muffins that uses basic ingredients and fresh peaches. If you like muffin tops these are amazing!
One of my favorite things about the months of summer and early fall is the awesome selection of fresh fruit available at farmer’s markets and local grocery stores. If I had to pick a favorite fruit it would definitely be peaches. There is nothing better than eating a giant, juicy peach! Cobblers and pies are yummy but I enjoy making these Peach Pecan Muffins with fresh peaches.
Even though fresh peaches are wonderful, the fact remains that for a good part of the year, they aren’t in season. These muffins can definitely be made with frozen, or even canned, peaches. Just make sure to drain the peaches well before adding them to the batter. This peach pecan muffin recipe could also be made into quick bread. Adjust the baking time and test for doneness in the middle before removing from the oven. To freeze, just place the muffins or loaves in a Ziploc freezer bag.
I love the pecan streusel that goes on top of the batter right before these are baked. It uses brown sugar so it has an earthy taste that reminds me a little bit of molasses. If you are a fan of muffin tops, these are amazing. I shared these muffins with my parents and my Dad gave them an enthusiastic thumbs-up!
