Spiced Peach and Raspberry Protein Muffins

Peaches are pretty special. They’re a bursting with vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, E & K, calcium, potassium and iron. These fuzzy fruits are low in calories, contain no saturated fat and are a source of fibre. For a way to use peaches differently, try this muffin recipe from Neat Ambassador, Korin Nolan.

 

Peach Muffins

 

METHOD:

Set the oven to a medium heat – around 170C & pop muffin cases into a muffin tin. 

Put the dates and milk in a blender or food processor and blitz until a smooth paste is formed. 

Add the other ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine everything well, including the date and milk mixture. 

Spoon the mixture into cases in the muffin tin and bake for around 30 minutes until cooked. Insert a metal skewer to test – if the middle is still wet, keep cooking until it comes out clean.
