Peachy with LOTS of Pecans!

Summertime means lots of juicy peaches on sale so I picked one up to make some yummy muffins. I over-filled my cups a lil bit so these muffins came out HUGE! You could probably get 8-9 regular sized ones but I'm happy with my big O muffins! They have just the right amount of sweetness with lots of crunch from the pecans. Perfect for summer snacking!

Ingredients: (6 BIG muffins)

1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 c granulated sugar
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 egg, well beaten
1/4 c oil
1/4 c buttermilk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c chopped pecans
1 peach, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or line 6 muffin cups.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the egg, oil, buttermilk and vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet. Stir just until dry mixture is moistened. Stir in pecans and peaches.

3. Divide among muffin cups. Bake 15-18 minutes until brown on top and toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
