Peach Raspberry Muffins (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

We have new back-door neighbors that moved in about a year ago.  Their family has blessed us in so many kids in the neighborhood (with a trampoline!), lots of sharing of "do you have an extra egg?" and such, and a mom who loves cooking and food.

Last week they surprised us with fresh-picked raspberries.  They were literally the most gorgeous berries I'd ever seen.  Our family devoured them that very evening, but I did save a few for these muffins.

Sporting both peach bits and raspberries, these muffins are very moist.  I used a whole-grain gluten-free flour mix, but you can make these with whole-wheat flour too.  Either way, the whole grains hold up well to the moisture in the fruit.

Enjoy these within a day or two of baking, or pop them in the freezer and keep them for future snacking!

Peach Raspberry Muffins
(adapted from Gluten-Free Baking Classics)

2 cups whole-grain gluten-free flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (omit if making with traditional flour)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup soy or almond milk (use dairy milk if you don't need it to be dairy-free)
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 large peach, diced
1/4 cup raspberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt and ginger.  Mix well.

In a medium bowl, combine the milk, oil, vanilla and eggs.  Combine until the eggs are fully incorporated into the other wet ingredients.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Stir until just combined.

Add the peaches and raspberries.

Line a muffin tin with 12 liners.  Add the batter until each liner is about 3/4 full.

Bake 22-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Makes 12 muffins.

*The skin of the peach will turn purple during the baking, but tastes perfectly wonderful.  If this change in color bothers you, you can peel the peach before dicing and adding to the batter.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
