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. -Robin Henry, Sugar Land, Texas

    I used canned peaches and saved the peach juice so I could pour a little on the muffins before eating. So good!

    I didn't care much for these muffins. I chopped my almonds too much and so the taste of the nut was overpowering. I am going to make again without the chopped almonds, as I think they will be much better.
