Peach Oatmeal Muffins

Last Updated on

We’ve had to do some adjusting with breakfast time around our house since school started. This is the first time ever that we’ve needed to worry about having a quick breakfast that allows Isabelle to get out the door quickly.

I’ll admit something I’ve never wanted to admit – 4 out of the 5 school morning breakfasts we’ve had so far have been cold cereal. I hang my head in shame! But, it’s allowed us to adjust to having any schedule in the morning without losing our minds.

I do NOT want to keep relying on the cold cereal breakfasts though. So I’ve decided that I’ll be making muffins once a week, a batch of pancakes or French toast once a week, and the other mornings will be for smoothies, oatmeal or scrambled eggs and toast. The muffins and French toast I’ll make in bulk so that we get a few days worth out of them.

These muffins are a favorite around here. The kids like the chunks of peach and I like the fact that they are nutritious and filling. The muffins have a taste similar to a spice cake that pairs perfectly with the fresh peaches and oats.
