Peaches and Cream Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ tablespoons light butter, softened (I use Land O’ Lakes)
  • 5 teaspoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (you can use all-purpose or regular wheat if you prefer)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped fresh peaches

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Line 12 cups of a standard size muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer (or a large bowl if you are using a hand mixer), combine the cream cheese, butter and applesauce and beat until blended. Add sugar and beat until combined. Add vanilla, eggs and egg whites and beat until blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour (lightly spoon into measuring cups and then level with a knife), baking soda, baking powder and salt and stir together. In the mixer bowl containing the wet ingredients, turn the mixer on a low speed while you pour in the flour mixture and the buttermilk. Beat on low until blended. Add the chopped peaches and stir in gently.
  4. Spoon the batter evenly into the liners (about 2/3 full). Bake for 25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
