  • 1/2 tsp. Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup Plain yogurt
  • 2 large Peaches, fresh & chopped (~1 1/2 cups)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Grease or line 12 muffin molds with muffin liners; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, whisk the eggs, olive oil, and yogurt together until smooth and creamy. Gently stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture, until just combined.
  • Delicately fold the chopped peaches evenly into the batter; be careful not to over-mix.
  • Transfer the batter evenly between the muffin molds. Sprinkle with coarse sugar (or pearled sugar) if desired. Bake for 18-20 minutes until the center is puffed and the tops are lightly golden or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out batter-free.
