Easy Peach Muffins

Peach Breakfast Muffins with large muffin tops.

Peach Muffins are easy to make, taste amazing, and only require two large peaches. The batter is full of ripe peach chunks with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Each muffin has a large risen top that can support additional peach slices.

If you’re completely peach obsessed in the summer like I am, you need to try these muffins. These bakery top muffins are so simple to make, just stir everything together. First, whisk the dry ingredients in one bowl. Then the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.  Finally combine them all with a little stirring and fold in your peach chunks. No need for electric mixers, just a bowl a hand whisk and tada muffin batter.

Each muffin is sprinkled with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon for a little crunch. I added the peach slice halfway through baking to prevent over crisping.

This peach muffin recipe is perfect for a lazy Sunday morning breakfast in bed. I paired them with peach tea, but they also go great with milk and coffee.

Tips for Peach Muffins

  • Use fresh yellow peaches for best flavor.
  • Batter can be used to make 6 large muffins with bakery style tops or 12 small muffins.
  • Chop peaches into small chunks before adding to batter.  The recipe calls for one peach, but you can add 1.5 peaches chopped to the batter for extra peachy goodness.
  • Divide the batter evenly amongst the muffin cups.
  • Bake muffins on lowest rack in regular oven for best tops. If you choose to use a convection, lower the temperature to 325 F.

    If you love peaches and love muffins, like I do, then you’ll love these!! There’s a hint of cinnamon and cloves. They’re made for peaches 😉 I sprinkled with a sanding sugar cinnamon mix which tops them off perfectly. Great recipe Jenn!

    These muffins are so good, and the best part is they are dairy-free so I can eat them too instead of just watch my kids eat them. I need to try this with other fruit.
