Orange Apricot Muffins

This is an odd combination but very tasty! Orange and apricot blend well and you can barely taste the hint of honey. Great for breakfast or snacks. Can there be too many snacks? ;-)

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup melted better (or other fat)
2 eggs
1 1/2 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
2/3 cup cane sugar*
1/3 cup honey*
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup chopped, dried apricots
juice and zest from 1 orange

Mix flour with sugar, salt, and baking powder. Blend in we ingredients.
Fold in zest and chopped apricots. Bake at 400 for 12 minutes.
*Can use all plain sugar.
