Summer is almost over, but we are still enjoying fabulous peaches here in the south. I had some fresh peaches that were starting to go bad so I made this recipe for Easy Peach Muffins which was really too simple for words. I adapted this recipe from Taste of Home using Greek yogurt and a few other kitchen staples, and they came out fabulous. These are perfect for a summer breakfast, after workout or afternoon snack, or dessert. If you can’t find fresh, be sure to use frozen. Frozen foods are picked at their peak and flash frozen so they are just as sweet and good for you. Happy Friday and have a super weekend!
