Peach Muffin Recipe – 3 PointsPlus on Weight Watchers

Today I am sharing a new recipe: peach muffins.  Summer is peach season here in Alabama, and there are few things more tasty than a Chilton county peach!

My mom brought me a big basket of them last week when they came to visit.  And of course they all ripen at once! So I have been eating them plain, putting them on oatmeal, and making muffins.

These are so good, even if I do say so myself.  My husband and toddler both gobbled them up without batting an eyelash, so you know they pass the taste test.  And they are very Weight Watchers friendly at 3 PointsPlus a piece.
