Peach Muffins

I don’t make muffins often enough. I see friends with kids who make them all the time, and I can see why; muffins are great, easy snack options, they freeze well and can be made extremely healthy by using nutrient-dense real food ingredients including hidden veggies, nuts, fruit, herbs and spices, just like in these peach muffins.

Since starting work in a corporate environment Mondays through Fridays, I’ve been needing to be on the game much more with my food prep, and muffins (as mentioned before) are the perfect morning snack. As it happened, I had a boatload of extra Teff from Teff Tribe, so decided to use some of it in these muffins.

As it happens, these peach muffins are completely free from added sweetener, sweetened only with pureed peach!
