With like double the streusel. YES!

I dunno about you guys, but I do believe that almost all muffins can be made better by adding a little streusel. The combo of delicious buttery streusel with these moist peachy muffins just really works for me. Meaning I think these muffins are freaking DELISH. A little on the sweet side, but um, when could that ever be a bad thing?!?

And hey, did you see… zucchini is involved, so that totally cancels out all the sugar in my mind…muahahaha.

Question, are you guys sick of peaches?

I am totally in peach mode. For me, the early summer months are all about berries + cherries, and the later summer months are all about peaches + zucchini. It’s no secret that the peaches always seem to be at their best come August, so clearly I needed to do a little baking with them.

In all honesty, this is truly the first summer I’ve truly embraced baking with summer fruits. I know that sounds just so horrible, but as you guys well know, when it comes to baked goods, I’m typically an all chocolate kind of girl. BUT this summer has been different, I’ve been embracing the “sweet” brunch foods.

OKok, so some of my sweet brunch foods really qualify as dessert to most people, but whatever. Mom’s a chocoholic, and to me, fruity things just do not feel dessert like.

Anyway, I’ve really grown to love baking/cooking with fruits. I’m talking pies, scones, grilled peaches, cherry pancakes, peach fritters, peach crisp, etc. It has for sure been a fruity kind of summer!! Pretty soon I’ll be moving on to apples, but for today, it’s all about peaches!

I’d love to say that these peach muffins have some amazing story as to how they came to be, but in all honesty, I really just had a whole bunch of peaches sitting on the counter that needed to be used. Sometimes I can get a little too exited when I see good-looking produce and I buy a little too much…either that or I went to the farm stand hungry, which caused me to buy more than I really needed. UGH. Tell me this happens to you guys too?

So I had several peaches and a fridge full of zucchini, and then well, I just decided it was a muffin kind of day and went for it. At first I wasn’t sure if you guys would think zucchini and peach muffins sounded totally weird, but then I asked all of my family members… repeatedly, and they all agreed zucchini peach muffins are where it’s at!

Decision made.

About forty minutes or so later my kitchen smelled beyond amazing and I had warm muffins sitting on my counter. Let me just say that getting through this photo shoot without picking away at these muffins was brutal. I reasoned with myself at first, but then I declared one of the muffins too ugly to photography. That was that, gone in five seconds flat.

SOOOO GOOD.

I feel like a lot of times you’ll see streusel muffins with a glaze, but these are perfect as it. No added sweetness is needed. Just maybe a cup of coffee or tea and you’ll have breakfast or afternoon snack perfection.

These are amazing straight outta the oven while still warm, but even a couple of days after baking, they still taste delish.

Really though, can you guys think of a better Tuesday treat?!?! I’m thinking that you have all got to make these, like ASAP. Before the peaches are all gone for the season…oh my gosh!

BUT when the peaches are gone ?, you can always swap them for apples. YES. That will be pretty amazing too.

Ok, now I am a little excited for fall… just a little. 🙂

Ingredients

Streusel

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners or grease with cooking spray.
  • Lay a clean kitchen towel on the counter and spread the zucchini out on the towel, cover with another clean towel and let sit 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl whisk together the yogurt, coconut oil, milk, eggs, vanilla, brown sugar and sugar. Stir in the shredded zucchini. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined. It's ok if there are still some clumps. Stir in the the diced peaches.
  • Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.
  • To make the streusel. In a small bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. Mix together with your hands, until you have a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle the muffins evenly with the streusel topping. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    1. Hey Meghan! Yes, that will work great! I am not sure on the baking time, so just check around 30 minutes or so for doneness. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks!

  1. Made these but had a mishap with the streusel as I left my butter out while doing everything else and it got a little too warm to streusel-fy haha. It’s ok because the muffins are great by themselves! I used coconut Greek yoghurt as that was all I had and it matches very well 🙂

  2. I would love to make this for someone who has a coconut allergy. Could I substitute the melted coconut oil with melted butter?

    1. Hey Allison! Yes, melted butter will work great! You can also use canola oil. Please let me know if you have questions. Thank you!

  3. These look amazing, I agree that more streusel is the way to go, and it is sooo good with peaches!

  4. This looks so good especially with the big chunks of peaches on them! I bought some good peaches last weekend in our farmer’s market, I wished I could buy the whole bucket! I have made some grilled and salsa and I’m planning to make an ice-cream because it’s still summer after all. 😉

    1. Ugh I am sure those peaches will be sooooo good!! Yes ice cream sounds so good too, enjoy all that you’re making! ?

  5. If you made it in a loaf tin, how long did you bake it for? Definitely making this later -peaches are the best!!!

    1. Hey Georgie, I am not sure since i have not baked the muffins this way, but I would guess around 45-55 minutes. Please let me know if you have questions. Hope you love this, thanks!

  6. Hi Tieghan – Sounds delicious! Do you have any suggestions for subbing out the milk/yogurt for a dairy free alternative?

    1. Hey Kailey!! You can use any nut milk in place of the milk and I think coconut yogurt would be awesome in place of the greek yogurt. If that is not option, just use an equal amount of nut milk. Let me know if you have ay questions. Thanks!

  7. Autumn came in my mind when I first saw these muffins. I thought you are already in an “autumn mode” 🙂 I am glad that you said you are excited for fall because I AM (like for a month already :D). Can’t wait for your autumn recipes! Have a nice day! x

    1. I am already in an Autumn mood!! Autumn recipes are just so good and I am super pumped. Thanks so much Ema, I hope you have a good day as well! ?

  8. These muffins look amazing!! I love the addition of Zucchini for some hidden veggies in the muffins. Can’t wait to give them a try!

  9. Not only am I totally NOT sick of peaches (what kind of monster gets sick of peaches?), I was coincidentally eating a peach while I read this post! Because I, like you, go shopping hungry and then come home with half the Whole Foods produce section.
