Zucchini Bran Muffins

I decided to attempt a cross between zucchini bread and a bran muffin – don’t ask me why! It just crept into my mind, and I couldn’t give the thought up without at least trying it. The main premiss behind my logic being zucchinis are so wet and bran can be so throat chokingly dry,…
