Moist Zucchini Bran Muffins

Moist_Banana_zucchini_muffin

Nothing compares to the soft, moist, full of aroma muffins from the oven. May be that’s why I bake muffins so often :)  My favorite part is that you can endlessly experiment with components and always (well, almost) get amazing results! Our today’s muffins are the combination of a few very healthy and nutritious ingredients – zucchini and bran, rolled oats and flax seed. Amazing!
