Peach Streusel Muffins

Since peaches are one of my favorite fruits, I always look forward to peach season and making all kinds of peachy treats—like these Peach Streusel Muffins! This recipe is adapted from one I found at A Few Short Cuts.

Also, I used a little more chopped peaches in the batter, because you can never go wrong with that! 🙂

And just the thing when you want something that tastes dessert-like but is also good for you!

I just made a few small changes, using both whole wheat and white whole wheat flour, a little more banana, and a little more chopped walnuts.
