Flax, Oat Bran, Buckwheat, & Pumpkin Muffins

This recipe is adapted from the a recipe found on the Red Mill, ground Flax meal bag. For a bran muffin, these babies are moist and very tasty. I've cut the white flour by half, and added an equal amount of buckwheat flour. I've also added a can of pumpkin and reduced the amount of milk. These muffins are so fresh and moist that they will only last a few days, so I freeze what we won't eat in a couple of days.
