REFRIGERATOR SEED MUFFINS

I have used the basic bran version of this recipe for years, but now that I am into seeds of all kinds I wanted to give this recipe an updated, Eating Clean version by adding flax, chia and more. [highlight color="eg. yellow, black"]Make a batch of this recipe in a big bowl and store in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. When you want to bake a batch of muffins it will be on hand. The batter actually improves with increased standing time.[/highlight]
