I've made muffins with oats before--what I did was mix the buttermilk with the oats together and let it sit for 10 minutes before adding in the rest of the wet ingredients. THEN I folded in the dry ingredients and the peaches. I baked my muffins in a 350 oven for 20 minutes--I got 12 biggish muffins out of one recipe. These muffins were so. freaking. good. Even my husband called me from work and told me how much he liked them. Between him and the kids they ate 9 muffins this morning. This recipe's a keeper. Read More

Well I have to say these were pretty bland and I even added cinnamon salt and nutmeg to the batter. These muffins are not very sweet and are low in fat so I guess if you're looking for a healthy muffin then these would be good. Read More

Overall these are probably 4 stars but I would rate them 5 if you're looking for a healthy alternative (not too) sweet treat for toddlers. I halved the recipe and made 30 mini muffins instead of regular muffins and made the recipe as stated except added the cinnamon to the batter instead of doing a cinnamon/sugar topping. (Omitted the white sugar altogether.) I used baby applesauce for a smooth texture. Mini muffins at 400 in a nonstick mini muffin pan were cooked in about 8 1/2 minutes. Next time I would add about 1/4 tsp. salt. I did not find these muffins to be overly dense--mine were spongey and pretty light. I diced the peaches very fine (again for my 1-year old) and I will freeze most of them for her to snack on later. Read More

Very good. I used skim milk instead of buttermilk and substituted a combo of honey/syrup for the molasses and was very pleased with the result. Thanks for the others who suggested adding in the salt... that was very necessary (I used about 1/2 t.) Read More

I made these muffins exactly according to the recipe. They have a slightly crunchy crust but are tender inside. The diced fresh peaches held their shape and color very well. However I do agree with the other reviewers who suggested adding salt. Next time I will add at least a teaspoon. Also I don't think the cinnamon sugar on top is worth the mess and effort. It just falls off. I may try adding a bit of cinnamon to the batter when I make these again which I will. Overall this is a great basic recipe and yummy slathered with butter! Read More

This recipe is awesome! I made these because they use peaches and my family will eat anything that uses them. I also found that this recipe can also use canned peaches. Read More

Just wonderful!!! I wish I could give these more stars for healthiness and goodness. I wanted a recipe that didn't take regular milk as I was out and had some 'yogurt milk' which is a drink found in Middle eastern stores similar to buttermilk. When I took it out of the fridge I realized my husband had bought the 'mint' flavored so I was in a quandry. I spotted two containers of blueberry non-fat yogurt. I used 1 cup of the blueberry yogurt. I did add 3/4 tsp. salt to the batter. Only had regular rolled oats and it worked fine. Surprisingly this time of year I had to very ripe nice flavor peaches. The taste was incredible. I could taste the peach throughout. Diced them fine. (2 good size peaches=1cup) 2 mini muffin pans at 10 min. baking time and 3 giant-sized muffins. Added tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp. ginger and 1/4 tsp. cardamom to the topping and it was wonderful. I did find like other reviewers however that the topping doesn't stick well. Maybe try adding it a bit before recommended time next time. These had a wonderful taste and not sickening sweet. Light and fluffy. Read More
