Peach Muffins / Peach Bread

Before my car went in the shop, I bought a bunch of peaches to eat for lunch during the week and for general snacks. Well, since I didn't go to work they got all smooshy.... I couldn't let them go bad so I cleaned, peeled, pitted, and diced them up. Then I went hunting for something sweet to make with them. I stumbled upon Kristen's Peach Cobbler Muffins! PERFECT! I modified it a little to use what I had. They smelled HEAVENLY!!!

Here's my version:

Peach Muffins / Peach Bread

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup oil
1/3 cup applesauce
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups peeled, pitted, chopped peaches

Preheat oven to 400*. Lightly grease muffin pan. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the oil, eggs, sugar and milk. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just moist. Fold in the peaches. Using a 1/3 cup, spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake 18-20 minutes. Let sit on the counter for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling wrack. Makes about 2 dozen.

I only made 1 dozen and opted to make a peach bread loaf with the remaining batter. It had to stay in the oven a bit longer. I think I left it in for a total of about 30 mins - just keep testing with a toothpick until it comes out *fairly* clean - remember: THIS IS VERY MOIST! It was freakin' delicious. Now I have breakfast/lunch muffins for a week! Luckily my BF doesn't like peaches. I get to have them ALL TO MYSELF!
