Honey Peach Muffins with Oat Streusel Topping-whole wheat muffins with juicy peaches and a sweet oat streusel topping! These muffins are a new family favorite!
I’ve been on a muffin kick. Caleb loves muffins so I have been making them for him, or at least that is what I am saying. I am enjoying the muffins too:) Yay for muffin madness!
I recently made Apple Zucchini Muffins, Mixed Berry Granola Muffins, and now Honey Peach Muffins with Oat Streusel Topping. I love making muffins because they don’t take long and I love unwrapping my own individual muffin. I love a treat that I don’t have to share:)
I am head over heels in love with these Honey Peach Muffins with Oat Streusel Topping. I made them on a whim because I needed to use up the peaches from our tree, but they are now a favorite muffin recipe at our house. I loved them and so did my boys. Well, Maxwell didn’t get a bite, but I am sure he will love then when he gets older.
“Sugar, oh honey, honey!” I don’t know why but that song is in my head. Oh wait, I do know why because I used honey to make these delicious peach muffins and now I can’t get the song or the muffins out of my head! Love the song and love the muffins!
Anyways, I made these muffins on a weekday morning when Maxwell was napping and Caleb and Josh were at the park. They came home to a muffin surprise! We all sat down and enjoyed a mid-morning muffin snack.
The whole wheat muffins are sweetened with honey and have chunks of fresh juicy peaches inside! The muffins also have a glorious oat streusel topping. Streusel makes everything better! We all devoured our muffins and Josh even grabbed a second. I refrained from having a second muffin…for about an hour. Then my muffin mind got the best of me and I ate another one!
I am SO glad I let my muffin craze continue because we are all in love with these Honey Peach Muffins with Oat Streusel Topping. They are going down in the books as a MUST make muffin! You better make a batch too and you might want to sing “Sugar, oh, honey, honey” while you bake! Singing while baking makes the muffins taste even better:)
