These peach streusel muffins are super versatile!
Here are some great ideas for additions or adjustments to make it your own:
- Chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, or almonds)
- A drizzle of vanilla glaze on top
- Replace the vanilla extract with almond extract for a nuttier flavor
- Add a little bit of spice with a pinch of cinnamon
Using fresh or frozen peaches
I’ve used fresh peaches here, but if you can’t find peaches in season, no worries!
You can easily replace fresh chopped peaches with frozen peaches in these peach streusel muffins.
Frozen fruit is picked at the peak of freshness, so it’ll always be ripe and sweet.
Storage and leftovers
Lastly, any leftover peach streusel muffins can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.
Or you can freeze them for later! Simply wrap baked and cooled peach streusel muffins in plastic wrap, and then again in aluminum foil, and place in a freezer-safe bag for up to 3 months.
To thaw, simply place at room temperature until thawed.
