Peach Cobbler Muffins

I'm really digging cooking with fruit lately, and today is no different. We all love peach cobbler right? If you don't, you just haven't my peach cobbler... I'm not bragging, I'm just saying... My peach cobbler is legit... and will change your mind.

One of my favorite breakfasts to grab on the go are muffins. Blueberry...blackberry...strawberry......Peach Cobbler... it really doesn't matter. These muffins are rich, and moist, and just the right portion size even for me... a dude that's counting his calories. These muffins pack 250 calories per muffin. Yes... there's butter. Yes, there's sugar, but it's all about moderation right? I can handle 250 calories for breakfast... it's that simple.

Start with these awesome ingredients. Here's a tip: if you have access to farm-fresh eggs, go for it! They're so much better taste-wise. I have a friend that gets me farm-fresh eggs, and there is really no comparison to store bought eggs.

These muffins are perfect for breakfast...or an airplane snack, which is what I'll be using them for. I hope you like it!
