Peach season is one of my favorite times of year! Late summer, not quite fall, last Saturday before school starts time of year. I used this muffin base with chocolate chips and kept thinking to myself, this is all wrong! It needs peaches, not chocolate chips! So a couple of days later I added fresh diced peaches and vanilla bean glaze. And like magic, these muffins were born! They will made as many times as possible during this most delicious season! Happy going back to school!
Peach Cobbler Muffins with Vanilla Bean Glaze
2 cups flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 t vanilla
1 large peach (or two small ones) peeled and diced small
Vanilla Bean Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
2 T milk
1/2 t vanilla bean paste (you can use vanilla extract too)
For the muffins:
Preheat the oven to 400. Grease muffin pan or use liners.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugars, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, coconut oil and vanilla bean paste. I add the coconut oil to the warm butter and stir them together to melt the coconut oil.
Add wet ingredients to the dry and mix until almost all the flour is absorbed. Add the diced peaches and gently fold them in until they are incorporated and the flour is all absorbed. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean and the edges are golden brown. While the muffins are cooking make the glaze.
For the Glaze:
Place all the glaze ingredients into a bowl and whisk until smooth. While the muffins are still hot, drizzle glaze over the muffins. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm!
