Almond Peach Muffins
Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a good "brown bag treat", try these. I also make them for breakfast and at-home snacks. Usually, I'll bake a double batch so we can eat some hot from the oven and pop the others in the refrigerator to heat later.
My husband and I have a son who's 4 and a baby daughter who's 9 months.
