Peachy Keen!

Peachy Keen!

August is National Peach Month and we’re loving all the delicious peaches coming into Denver from Colorado’s western slope.  If you went peach picking in Palisade, or your local farmer’s market, you may be wondering how you can incorporate peaches into every meal, including breakfast! Here are a few of our favorite ideas for a peachy breakfast in Denver.

 

Peach, Banana & Pecan Pancakes

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 and 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 medium banana – mashed
  • 1 medium peach – peeled and chopped into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls.  Combine both wet and dry to form batter and cook on a frying pan or griddle using the same methods as traditional pancakes.

 

Tropical Peach Smoothie

  • 1 large ripe peach – sliced
  • 1 cup coconut yogurt
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • Ice to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!  You can add more fruit such as banana or use different yogurt such as vanilla or peach to create variations to this recipe.  

 

Peach Pecan Muffins

  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter – melted
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 medium peaches – peeled and diced

For The Topping:

  • 1/2 cup pecans – chopped
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar – packed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons butter – melted

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease and flour 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin cups. Combine topping ingredients until mixture is crumbly; set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together butter, milk, and egg in a separate bowl. Stir milk/egg mixture into the flour mixture and blend just until moistened. Fold in diced peaches. Spoon into muffin cups; sprinkle evenly with topping mixture.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan.

 

Happy peach season Denver!
