Ingredients

  • 150 gr organic white all purpose flour (1 cup)
  • 100 gr organic whole wheat flour (7/8 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • a generous pinch of sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 1-1/2 cup large peaches, chopped (I used 2 large white peaches and 1 yellow peach)
  • 240 ml buttermilk (1 cup) see notes for homemade a2 Milk™ buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons organic honey
  • zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract optional
  • spray oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 220 C / 450 F, and arrange a baking tray into the middle shelf. Generously spray with oil a muffin tin and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together white flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon & ginger powder (if using).
  • Pat the chopped peach dry on kitchen paper, then add into the flour mixture bowl and gently coat.
  • In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, olive oil, egg, honey and orange zest until combined.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, pour a generous scoop of muffin batter among each muffin tin cup.
  • Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 200 C / 400 F and continue to bake for a further 10 minutes, until golden brown. To check if the muffins are ready, insert a toothpick in the center, if it comes out clean they're ready.
  • Remove from the oven and eat warm. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Notes

* To make homemade buttermilk: In a large bowl place 250 ml of a2 Milk™ and mix in 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Allow to sit for 5 min and use as needed.
