Happy Memorial Day!!!
Make sure you take a moment to remember all the United States troops
who have given their time and lives for our freedom!!!
Now it is time for another fun round of Secret Recipe Club.
This month I was assigned to the blog
So Tasty, So Yummy.
I had a good time going through her older posts
and trying to decide which yummy one to recreate.
It was tough, let me tell you!
I wanted to try just about everything!
Her chocolate chip cookie bars almost had me sold…
until I came across these Peach Oat muffins.
My kids love a good muffin in the morning, and
I love a good muffin I can make the day before.
In fact, I actually thought these muffins tasted even better
the second day around.
The funny thing about choosing this muffin recipe…
earlier this week I had gone grocery shopping
and picked up some peaches…
for guess what? got it. Muffins!
No doubt about it…
this muffin recipe had to be tried!!!
I modified the recipe slightly, based on what I had in my cupboards that day.
Then because I like streusel topped muffins…
I kinda had to add that too:-)
And the best part of these muffins…
applesauce is used in place of any oil or butter.
Oatmeal and fruit…these are pretty much health food.
Just close your eyes when when you put on the buttery streusel:-)
