Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins

Hearty homemade muffins are pretty much one of the most perfect weekday breakfasts out there. I love when they’re full of jammy puddles of fruit, chewy bits of grains or seeds, and with a soft pillow-y crumb. These Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins are no exception.

White peach muffins with almond streusel

White peaches are something that I had never purchased myself and I was skeptical about their flavour– could they really be as delicious as the fabulous yellow peaches that parade the supermarket stalls, full of juicy sweetness? Or are they simply a sub-par cousin who rides the peach wave when the season hits? While I didn’t find  ...
