What better excuse to make peach muffins, than peach season! I also wanted to use the almond meal I bought months ago. As I started to research online, I discovered you can’t really use almond meal in baking without eggs. Conundrum. So, I stared at my pantry, trying to figure out next steps. I wanted to keep the theme of using a non-traditional flour, so I was down to either quinoa flour or oat flour – in the end – oat flour won. (This was after a quick sniff test of the two, and which would give the best flavor and assist in the rising of the muffins!)I scribbled down what I felt the ingredients should be after looking at multiple recipes. This is the first time where I totally made up a recipe and took risks when BAKING. I do it all the time when cooking, but baking is way more exact so I’ve always been too afraid to try it. I have to say, I am so happy with the final results! I had a hard time stopping at two muffins! This (hopefully) has opened up a new door for me to continue taking baking risks.
