Summer Meets Fall

The last few (and not quite as tasty) peaches are leaving the market, and the first pecans are just showing up. It is the perfect time to make some spiced peach pecan muffins! It's not too hot too bake, not too far in to the hectic holiday season, and everyone likes a good muffin.

Spiced Peach Pecan Muffins
makes 16
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 cups oat flour (or rolled oats blended into a fine powder)
¼ cup cornmeal
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
½ cup sugar
3 ripe bananas
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
3 peaches, peeled and diced
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and oil a muffin pan. Mix the flours, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together. In a blender, blend the bananas, yogurt, eggs, and milk until creamy. Mix the wet and dry ingredients, stirring in the peaches. Divide the batter between the muffin holes. Top each muffin with a tablespoon of chopped pecans. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

These muffins are food for my Georgian soul. Fresh pecans right off the tree and peaches just picked that morning are two of things I miss most about my home state. These muffins help to fill the hole GA left in my heart.
