Honey Peach Quick Bread with Chia Seeds

There’s a reason why you won’t find me in the kitchen baking cookies, cakes and breads.

For the most part, I’m not good at it. Baking requires precision. I prefer to chop, drop and plop – not measure tiny spoonfuls of this and that to ensure my creations turn out light and fluffy.

But every once-in-awhile I decide to give baking another shot, as was the case with this easy quick bread inspired by my long time friend, Dr. Cookie.

As you can see I even took out my fancy mini bread pans for the occasion.

The fresh peaches sitting on the counter were the perfect addition to this quick bread recipe. I even sprinkled a few chia seeds on top for a splash of color.

Not a bad baking attempt for this non-baker. The bread came out of the oven fragrant and tender – perfect with a cup of coffee.

Have a terrific week!

    I love peaches and I’ve been eating them everyday (I’m crazy about Japanese white peaches although one peach costs over $2!!). Once I go back to the States, I want to use peaches for baking. This quick bread sounds wonderful!

      That’s the thing about eating seasonally, isn’t it? When you buy the produce that’s in season, it’s incredibly flavorful. I agree that it would be hard to pay $2 for a peach, but sometimes it’s totally worth it.

      I have to admit it was hard to put those fresh peaches into a bread instead of biting into them, but my husband was happy. He’s been asking for something baked for weeks. :)

      I love that we’re in agreement! I don’t measure much either, but for the recipes you see here. When I’m creating recipes I measure, but otherwise, I wing it!

    Great idea to use peaches in a quick bread! I don’t believe I’ve seen that before – really inspired. And easy, too – my kind of recipe. I’m like you – I have little patience for baking (I’ll do bread, though). Lucky for me my wife loves to bake, so I’m covered! Anyway good stuff – thanks.

    Thanks for the recipe and hope you are having a great week Kristi 😀
