If you’re looking for a delicious breakfast, snack, or dessert recipe, this vegan peach quinoa muffin recipe is it!
Peaches are one of my most favorite stone fruits. However, I tend to overbuy them because I’m obsessed with summer fruit and never want the season to end. So they can go a little old before I have the chance to eat them. I decided to try to save a couple of peaches by turning them into muffins!
I love having muffins to pop in the freezer. They are a perfect breakfast or snack for my toddler when I feel like eating something that I know he doesn’t like. (He hates chocolate oats and it’s one of my most favorite breakfasts.) They are also really convenient for breakfast or toddler snacking on-the-go. I also absolutely loved having my muffin freezer stash when I was breastfeeding heavily and was constantly hungry. I remember I watched a postpartum video on how to survive the first few months and the video mentioned freezing muffins! It was by far the best piece of postpartum advice I’ve ever gotten! (Life-saving.)
These muffins are an adaptation of an old blueberry spelt muffin recipe from the blog. It’s my full-proof vegan muffin recipe. I love playing around with different flavor combinations. The recipe uses coconut yogurt as an egg replacement. I still find it difficult to get a very high rise in my muffins. But I put that down to keeping my muffins vegan and using low gluten or gluten-free flours. I’d love to develop a recipe where the muffins rise really high above the tin. The only reason I really care for a higher rise muffin is that it makes for great photos, but there’s no real difference in taste or texture.
This plant-based whole food peach quinoa muffin recipe is refined sugar-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and can easily be made entirely gluten-free. Enjoy!
