1-2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup oil or melted unsalted butter

1 cup coarsely chopped peaches, pitted, skins removed
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners.
Prepare Almond Crunch Topping by mixing almonds, sugar, cinnamon and butter in a small bowl until crumbly. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together oil or melted butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Fold in flour, oatmeal, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, baking soda, and salt.
Fold in chopped peaches.
Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop out equal size portions of batter into muffin cups.
Distribute Almond Crunch Topping equally on muffins.
