Back to the Gluten-Free Peaches and Cream Muffins…

The batter comes together in 4 Easy Steps!

  1. mix the together the wet ingredients
  2. mix together the dry ingredients
  3. add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix to combine
  4. stir in peaches

Note: The batter comes together in about 15 minutes but one important tip for best texture and flavor– Be sure to rest the batter for 20 minutes prior to filling muffin tins and baking. Don’t rest for more than 30 minutes or the muffins will be too dense.

While the batter rests, it’s a perfect time to make the Streusel Topping!

The streusel topping couldn’t be easier!

Just mix together the following ingredients with a pastry cutter, fork or your hands (my preference) until a sticky crumble topping forms.

gluten-free all purpose flour

gluten-free oats (sub extra flour if you can’t tolerate oats)

flax seed meal (optional but I add it to everything for extra nutrients!)

butter and

brown sugar

Then it’s time to assemble the muffins and bake!

Scoop the batter into full size muffin tins (there with be lots of batter and lots of peaches so scoop generously and to the top of the muffin tin) then top with streusel, pressing gently into the batter.

Your home will smell amazing while they bake!

Ingredients

Muffins

  • 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour we use GF Jules - affiliate link
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoons butter or dairy-free butter, melted
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt or dairy-free yogurt of choice
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup chopped peaches (chopped into 1/2 - 3/4 inch pieces according to taste) approximately 3-4 peaches

Streusel Topping

  • cup gluten-free all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free oats (or sub additional gluten-free flour)
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed meal
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, melted butter, yogurt and vanilla until well combined.
  • Mix flour mixture into wet mixture until thoroughly combined and no lumps remain, about 1 minute.
  • Gently fold in peaches until evenly distributed.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let batter rest at room temperature for 20 minutes (no longer than 30 minutes)
  • While batter rests, preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners OR spray with with canola oil spray. Set aside.

Make Streusel

  • Mix together brown sugar, oats, flour and flax seed meal with a fork. Add in butter and using a fork or your hands combine until a crumble forms. Will be sticky. Set aside.

Assemble

  • Using a cookie scoop or large spoon, portion batter evenly into prepared muffin tins. There is a lot of batter and peaches so fill generously and fill to the top of the muffin tin.
  • Top with streusel-- gently press streusel into top of muffins.
  • Bake 22-25 minutes (22 minutes is perfect in my oven), or until the muffins are golden and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If the tops are golden but the center not cooked, gently cover with foil and continue baking for the additional time.
  • Let muffins cool in muffin tin on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from tins and let cool at least another 10 minutes
  • Store in an air tight container for several days. Store in the refrigerator up to a week.

  1. 5 stars
    I had a surplus of frozen peaches in the house so decided to give them a try. They came together quickly, and as instructed, I let the batter rest while I made the crumble. So easy, fluffy and delicious! I added a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of the crumble before baking b/c I LOVE cinnamon. They were an instant hit!

  2. I loved how easy and quick these were to make. My daughter is celiac and most dessert I try never come out right. These muffins were amazing and so moist and tasty. The whole family enjoyed them. Thank you for the recipe.
