Ready to make your own summer muffins? Let’s see how it goes!
Seasonal Fruits For The WinWe completely support using frozen fruits whenever you can’t find the fresh version, but when in season, go all in. Why? Well, eating seasonal is a great way to add variety to your diet and eat the freshest foods available. In winter, the oranges, persimmons, pears, and grapefruits. In the summer, the peaches, melons, watermelons, and apricots. Each season gives us fruits with characteristics of its own. Summer fruits are water-rich and winter fruits packed with fiber. Nature is wise. Another amazing benefit of eating seasonal fruits is taking care of our budget, which is something we are (obviously) very passionate about. Fruits in season are usually a lot more affordable than those brought from other parts of the world. So, get your seasonal fruits game on and take advantage of those amazingly sweet treats.

Don’t be intimidated by the amount since you can always store them in your fridge or, even better, freeze them and store them for months. Who doesn’t want to have a delicious peach blueberry muffin ready to enjoy at all times?
How to Freeze Them?First of all, let them cool down completely before attempting to freeze them. Second, transfer the muffins into an airtight freezer friendly bag, plastic container, or wrap them in aluminum foil. Easy peasy! You can store them for up to two months. Recommended equipment:
- 1 ripe banana, peeled and mashed
- 3/4 cup of applesauce
- 1 or 1 1/4 cup sugar (depending on your sweetness preference)
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of canola oil
- 3 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 2 cups of fresh diced peaches
- 1 ½ cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a muffin pan.
In a large bowl, blend the banana, applesauce, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; mix just to combine. Stir in the peaches, blueberries and walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin pans, filling ¾ of each cup.
Place them into the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Check to see if it’s fully baked by placing a toothpick or fork into the middle of the muffin, if it comes out clean, it’s finished. If it has batter on it, bake for another 5 minutes.
