More good reasons to make these muffins
Steel cut oats are highly nutritious. Obviously they're delicious, but they make a wonderful make ahead or grab and go breakfast for busy mornings. They are high in fiber, keeping you satisfied until your next meal. They're low in calories, at 170 calories per cup, and research shows they're effective at lowering cholesterol.
Also, I know how irritable these beautiful stone fruits are from the farmer's market. They also get soft quickly, so if you have some on your counter that you need to use up before they get too soft, baking them is the perfect option.

Tips for making these muffins
Soak your steel cut oats overnight in water or milk. This will create a super thick batter, allowing your muffins to rise and adds such a good, hearty texture. This step is also necessary, as you want the oats to absorb the liquid.

When you're ready to bake, preheat your oven to 218°C / 425°F
Prepare your muffin pan by setting cupcake liners.

While your honey is melting, combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt) in a large bowl.
Pour your melted butter + honey combo into your large bowl. Add in egg, vanilla, and soaked oats.. Your oats should have absorbed your milk or water. If not, strain the soaked oats from the milk or water it was soaked in and add it only your oats. Combine all ingredients until well combined.
Fold in your peach + apricot combo
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop your muffin batter into your lined muffin pan. The batter should reach the top of the liner. If desired, add old fashioned oats on top for garnish. for more texture.
Bake for 8 minutes at 218°C / 425°F then, keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 177°C 350°F . Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let muffins cool for at least 10 minutes.
