In a bowl, combine the flour, bran, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and mixed spice.
In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, oil, vanilla, honey, apple and zucchini.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a spatula to turn the mixture until all ingredients are just moist.
Spoon mixture evenly into muffin tin and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or till tested ready.

Be careful not to over-mix the batter as it will make the muffins heavy.
