Peach and Raspberry Buttermilk Muffins

I don't know why buttermilk never comes in any size less than a 1/2 gallon. At least I've never seen it if it does... Who needs that much buttermilk?

Anyway, that's the reason I made these muffins, I needed to use up some buttermilk. Plus I'm still trying to bake some healthier treats for grab and go breakfast in the morning.

These muffins came out moist and tasty. I used frozen raspberries and peaches, but you can substitute any fruit you like really, frozen or fresh. You may just need to bake them a little longer if you use frozen like I did!

  1. These look delicious! Thanks for the recipe. By the way, I buy powdered buttermilk. Just add water to it and use the amt needed. Saves throwing out what is left of the half gal. I've had my carton of it for a while. It seems to keep for a long time without spoiling. Love your blog.
