Can I make these whole wheat peach muffins without eggs?

Yes, you can. To make eggless peach muffins, replace 2 medium-sized eggs with flax seeds gel or flax seeds egg. 

To make 2 flax eggs, mix 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds with 6 tablespoons of water. Mix together, and let it sit in your fridge for 15-30 minutes until set up and thicken. Once the water is absorbed and flax seeds gel is formed, you can use it in the recipe.

How to store Whole Wheat Peach Muffins?

To store, place baked and cooled peach muffins in a ziplock bag or in an air-tight container lined with kitchen tissue. You can also wrap them in aluminum foil. 

After wrapping, store them on the counter for 3 days, or in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can have them cold. If you like warm muffins, then just pop them in the microwave for 20 seconds. 

These muffins can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Awesome tips, tricks, and variations to make your best Whole Wheat Peach Muffins:

  1. I used donut peaches, but you can use any other peaches of your choice. 

  2. The skin of donut peaches turns blackish after baking, so if you don’t like blackish skin then feel free to remove the skin before adding to the batter.

  3. You can also add allspice or nutmeg to these muffins.

  4. Blueberries and peaches make a great combination, so feel free to add blueberries to your muffin batter.

  5. Milk can also be replaced with buttermilk.

  6. Fresh peaches work best here, but you can also freeze or canned peaches for this peach muffin recipe. 

  7. I added vanilla extract to these muffins, but you can also add almond extract along with vanilla.

  8. These muffins would come out brown in color, because of the whole wheat flour and brown sugar. If you want lighter muffins, then replace whole wheat flour with all-purpose flour and brown sugar with white sugar.

  9. The batter should be thick for these muffins, meaning it is thick, yet scoopable. So if your batter is too runny, then add 1 tablespoon flour at a time until you get the correct consistency. And if the batter is too dry or too thick, then add 1 tablespoon milk at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Let’s now learn how to make the best healthy whole wheat peach muffins from scratch!
