Late Summer Peach Muffins with a Pseudo-Streusel

Happy meal prep! Class is about to start up again after a two week hiatus. Having 9 am to 9 pm class on Mondays is going to be a wee bit rough, so obviously I need some new muffins in my life. I concocted a batch of Almond Peach Protein Muffins since I love fresh, ripe, juicy peaches with almond extract in the summer. Topped with a little brown sugar and chopped almonds, the muffins aren’t overly sweet and hit the spot with just a hint of summer as we move to the fall.

Ingredients (makes 12 muffins; serving of 1-2 muffins).

  • 1 banana
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t almond extract
  • 1 T agave nectar
  • 3/4 c plant-based vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 c almond flour
  • 1/2 c oats
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 ripe peach, diced
  • 7-8 raw whole almonds
  • 1/2 T brown sugar

Directions.

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a muffin pan with liners (because I’m lazy and hate cleaning muffin pans).
  2. In a medium bowl, mash banana. Whisk in egg, almond milk, agave, almond extract and vanilla until a smooth batter forms.
  3. In a small blender or food processor, grind oats into a flour. Transfer oat flour to the wet ingredients along with protein powder, almond flour and baking powder and mix well. Fold in diced peaches.
  4. Spoon batter into lined muffin tins so the tin is 3/4 full.
  5. Carefully and roughly chop whole almonds and mix with brown sugar. Sprinkle on top of muffins for a pseudo-Streusel topping.
  6. Bake 18-22 min. Muffins should be firm and a toothpick will come out clean when done. Cool on a wire rack.
  7. Enjoy!
