My parents are visiting for the 4th of July weekend and one of my mom’s favorite summertime treats is peaches. She loves peach crisp, peach crumble, peach pie, and canned peaches. That’s why I wanted to surprise my mom with a special peach recipe while they were visiting and I thought I’d give peach muffins a try.
Kora loves to bake and it was the perfect opportunity to get her involved as well. Now that she’s 7 I felt she was old enough to tackle her first recipe all on her own (except for the parts involving the oven). So I wrote out the recipe, got her set up, and let her go.
She was so excited to be making the muffins all by herself and they turned out fabulously. She was so proud!
These muffins are delicious and the peaches add a wonderful summer flavor. When my parents arrived we gave them each a muffin and they were impressed that Kora made them and commented on how delicious they were. My mom, of course, loved the peaches and was excited that we made them for her. These muffins were a big hit and we have a few left right now but as soon as they’re gone Kora & I can’t wait to make them again and even try the recipe as a bread.
Here’s the recipe, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I have a question for everyone who has made this recipe.
What size container of peach Greek yogurt did You use?
Thank You so much.
From what I have found online, your average greek yogurt is 6 oz.
I also have some questions..
Are the peach chunks drained? When do add the vanilla? This sounds and looks like a great recipe if it was complete for us to follow. Please fix it! :)

Sounds good to me. Your daughter reminds me of me at that age. My mom taught me how to bake from scratch. It was fun at that age. My specialty was yellow cake with white icing. Only because it was mu step dads favorite. Thank you for the recipe.

I love anything with peaches. I’d also be tempted to replace the canned stuff with fresh Georgia peaches, at least during the summer.
