This had been my Mom's recipe. I've been making these for decades because they taste good; however since they are dairy free ( due to World War II rationing), that should make them healthful as well. I always make these during peach season, however, there's no need to wait until then, frozen or canned peaches work well too. A cooking note: If you're seriously watching cholesterol levels, you can make these with just one egg, and they taste just as good, however the muffins will tend to be a tad crumbly.
