Strawberry Peach Muffins

The original of this recipe is in the Favorite All Time Breakfast and Brunch cookbook. The original is for strawberry muffins, but I had peaches too and thought Eleanor would like to wake up to these before the drylands portion of her high school swim workout. She was home when I returned from work and had the entire batch gone, so I guess they are good.

I cut the butter in half from the original recipe and used 1/4 c whole wheat flour instead of all white flour...just trying to increase the nutritional value without changing the taste too much. Also, the original called for 1 c strawberries but I used 1/2 c strawberries and 1 c diced peaches....a bit more fruit in the muffin as well. I decreased the sugar from 1/2 c to a generous 1/4 c. it is:
1 1/4 c flour
2 1/2 t baking powder
1 c oats
1/4 c sugar
1 c milk
1/4 c butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 t vanilla mentioned above
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Sift together dry ingredients and set asided. Mix wet ingredients together and add to the dry mixing until just moistened. Add the fruit.
3. Bake 15 minutes or so.
