“Movin to the country gonna eat a lot of peaches.”
– The Presidents of the United States of America

I apologize in advance.  This song will get stuck in your head for days. Possibly weeks.  Who knew a little ditty about peaches would be so #&$%^ catchy?!  That said, my latest recipe creation was actually not inspired by the evil peaches song but by a Ginger Peach White Tea we picked up from The Republic of Tea. I loved the blend of this tea and thought this combination would be perfect in a muffin!

The melding of ginger and peach flavors provide just the right contrast of spicy and sweet.  The muffins are moist and freeze/reheat perfectly (which is good because the recipe makes three dozen!).

Gluten Free Ginger Peach Muffins with Agave Nectar

3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup sour cream (I used reduced fat)
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 container (6 ounces) peach yogurt
1 can (15 ounces) peaches drained & diced
1 cup white rice flour
1 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup millet flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, combine all wet ingredients and mix well.  Then add in all dry ingredients – finish by folding in the fresh grated ginger and chopped pecans.  Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray. Using a spring loaded ice cream scoop (this is so much easier than trying to pour directly into the muffin tin!), evenly distribute the batter into muffin tins. Bake 30 minutes (or until wooden tester comes out clean). Makes three dozen muffins.

  1. These are terrific looking GF peach muffins & I love the added peach yoghurt in here!

    The added pecans & ginger must add real flavour!

    MMMMMMMMMMM,…You have a COOl food blog!

  2. These sound yummy. I wonder if you could ground some of that tea and add it to the batch to give it more kick (I love ginger, perhaps a bit too much…).

  3. Hello, you mentioned:

    “I apologize in advance. This song will get stuck in your head for days. Possibly weeks.”

    It took me years and lots of therapy to get that song out of my head after the 90’s. Now I’m back to zero 🙂 ! I will try to not let the song reference ruin my appetite for these peach muffins….I’m really looking forward to trying them.
