I made these yummy muffins recently for a brunch that we went to. I wanted to make them fairly healthy. You could also use half whole wheat flour, half all purpose flour. but I didn't want them "too healthy", if you know what I mean. Otherwise, some people might not eat them. I also wanted to use some peaches that I had, and to put the Greek yogurt in it. I love the texture of the baked goods, when you use the Greek yogurt, so moist and delicious. I looked at some banana bread recipes, and ultimately decided to modify a banana bread recipe.

Then I added peaches to the banana batter.
