Flax Bran Muffins

I have been looking for a good recipe for breakfast muffins with flax seed and bran. I've finally found it! These muffins are tasty. (well, not tasty compared to say chocolate cheesecake, but tasty in a healthy way!)

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cups ground flax seeds
3/4 cups oat or wheat bran
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
Combine these ingredients and then add to mixture:
1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
2 apples peeled and shredded
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

combine the following and then add to above mixture:
3/4 cups milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla

Fill your muffin cups 2/3 of the way full, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
