Evil Twin Muffin (Zucchini Banana Apricot Pear Bran Flax!)

Submitted by: BUTIAMLETIRED

Introduction

Wonder 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.

  • 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

  • My 2 year old girls LOVED these...it was an easy way to get them to eat healthy! Next time, I will grind the flax seed (oops). - 3/6/11

  • I LOVED these !!! I REFUSE to give any away; I liked them even better than Chef Meg's zucchini ones, but I also love those, they're just different. These are smoother and jucier, Meg's original are chewier. - 9/17/10
