I love the chunks of peaches baked into the cake-like muffins. The flavor of the fresh peaches is wonderful with the almond, honey and lemon.

    I made some conventional peach muffins yesterday and they were amazing but I’d like to to try some paleo ones. These look terrific! I’ll try em and let you know. Love your picture! Well done.

      Thank you! I love peaches and have put them in everything lately. I made these muffins for my (non-paleo) family when they were visiting and they were a big hit.

    Hello! I’d love to try to make these for my son. He is allergic to wheat, eggs, dairy, soy, rice, corn, potato, beef, barley, mustard. Any ideas for what I could use to replace the flour? And ghee? I could use flax seed gel for the eggs.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!!!! Thank you!! :)

      Hi Rachel! You can substitute coconut oil for the ghee – that works in most recipes. If your son can’t have almond flour, I would start with a recipe that uses coconut flour, like my banana blackberry muffins, and substitute peaches for the blackberries. (Because almond flour and coconut flour are so different, you can’t substitute it in this recipe.) Here’s the link:

      Hi Christina, I have never tried this recipe with wet almond meal. I think you would need to dry the almond meal first to use it in this recipe, otherwise the batter would be too wet.

    This recipe is great and easy but my muffins turned out pretty bland :( There’s no peach taste at all and I used more than a cup of peaches. Any ideas?

    • says

      Katie, I found the flavor of the peaches makes a difference in these muffins. When I tried this recipe with frozen peaches, there was not as much peach flavor. But they were amazing with fresh local peaches. You could also try adding a little lemon zest or cinnamon to bring out the flavor.

    I just made these last night and instead of peaches, I used nectarines. These were pretty good. They weren’t sweet enough for my tastes though. They kind of tasted like corn bread, not like a sweet breakfast muffin like I wanted. But they are good for what they are. They cooked really well, they didn’t fall apart like some paleo muffins do. I would make them again but with more fruit.

  5. Tammy says

    OhhhhEmmmmGeeee, these are delicious! Thank you for the recipe. I look forward to others with different fruits!

    These were a hit even with my picky child. I used lemon olive oil instead of ghee and sprinkled tops with coconut sugar. They came out wonderfully! Thank you!
