Evil Twin Muffin (Zucchini Banana Apricot Pear Bran Flax!)Submitted by: BUTIAMLETIRED
IntroductionWonder Muffin's exil twin! That same awesome bran flax base with a whole new set of fruits and veggies.
Heres a tip - if your pears are overripe you'll want to mash them. If you have firm crispy pears like Green Anjou or Bosc dice them up and add an extra 1/4 c. of milk. Wonder Muffin's exil twin! That same awesome bran flax base with a whole new set of fruits and veggies.

3/4 cup oat bran
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup skim milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
1/2 cup nuts (your choice, optional)

Endless possibilities! I used two quick bread pans instead of muffin pans, baked for 27 mins. for the glass loaf pan, 34 mins. for the non-stick metal pan. I sliced the loaves lengthwise and crosswise to still get 16 servings. This recipe is a great way to use up ripe or bumper crop produce! - 5/24/11
