Whole Wheat Apricot Muffins

These muffins are best served warm, so reheat before serving if you've made them a day or two ahead. Wrap the muffins in aluminum foil, and heat at 350° for 10 to 15 minutes. Try varying the recipe by using dried fruit in place of the apricots--dried cherries or dates, for instance.
