Maple-Peach Muffins

Peach season came and went so fast I didn’t get a chance to bake any recipes with fresh peaches! But I still wanted to bake something with a peachy flavor. I thought one of the complimentary Fruit & Maple Spreads I received from Polaner® would be a great thing to try in a muffin—especially since they had sent me a peach fruit spread. Peach muffins sounded good for this time of year with some chopped pecans added in. So I came up with these Maple-Peach Muffins and they satisfied my peach craving very nicely!

The Peach Fruit & Maple Spread worked really nicely in this recipe (Polaner® Fruit & Maple Spreads also come in Raspberry, Strawberry, and Blueberry flavors). Since this line of fruit spreads is sweetened with pure maple syrup, they have no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors or sweeteners, and no artificial colors. I really like that these are sweetened with maple syrup, since I’m trying to find tasty ways of using less sugar!

These muffins are dense and moist and have a light peachy flavor. The pecans add a nice crunchy texture and maple syrup makes them sweet but not overly sweet. You can substitute Peach Jam for the Fruit & Maple Spread if you want—the taste of the muffins will be a little sweeter if you use peach jam. One other thing about these muffins is that they rise very nicely as they bake!

    Nancy these sound so lovely and that spread sounds perfect (but not available in the UK)! We’ve been making chocolate muffins (boys!) and apple muffins recently but now I want to try peach!!! I can’t say I’ve ever even had anything other than fresh peaches and peach juice so this is really exciting to try! Thanks for linking and sharing at Fiesta Friday!
