Peach Muffin Bars
Have you ever tried to do something that hasn’t turned out the way you thought it would?
This something turns out completely different, yet still awesome? It’s kind of like writing a paper that naturally progresses in a different direction. Failing at something only to get a better result because of the failure. Or marrying a blond when you always thought you would marry a brunette. (And yes, I am speaking about myself.)
I’ll be honest, this recipe was kind of an accident, but I love the way it turned out! I’ve invented a new thing, because it’s basically a muffin in a cake pan. And it’s just so “peachy!” This is great for a brunch.

1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Mix dry ingredients in a medium size bowl (excluding the brown sugar).
2. Mix wet ingredients and brown sugar in a separate bowl until well incorporated.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, and fold together until well incorporated. Set aside.
4. Melt the butter and add to the baking dish. Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar on top of the melted butter, and add the peaches.
5. Pour the muffin batter on top of the peaches. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until done. A toothpick, when inserted, should come out clean.
