frequently asked questions

what if i need to make a batch of twelve muffins?

just double all of the ingredients and you have a full batch of 12 muffins! i do suggest baking with a space in between each muffin though as that allows the muffins to rise more and get a more dome shape.

can i swap peaches for any other fruit i have on hand?

you could! but it would change with the consistency. if you have other stone fruits on hand, that should be a 1:1 swap that does not impact that consistency of the batter.

what’s the difference between monk fruit sweetener and granulated sugar?

the good news is that you can use either product in this recipe as the sugar and it will come out great!

how should i store these muffins?

store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in a freezer safe container in the freezer for up to 1 month

how long do these muffins last?

store at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the fridge for 5 days or freezer for up to 1 month. see appropriate containers in the above question!
