Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a good "brown bag treat", try these. I also make them for breakfast and at-home snacks. Usually, I'll bake a double batch so we can eat some hot from the oven and pop the others in the refrigerator to heat later. My husband and I have a son who's 4 and a baby daughter who's 9 months. -Robin Henry, Sugar Land, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped peeled fresh peaches
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, beat the eggs, oil and extracts; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in peaches and almonds. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full.
  2. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> A 14-1/2-ounce can of peaches, drained and chopped, may be substituted for the fresh peaches.
