In a bowl mix the buckhwheat flour, wheat bran, flax meal and baking powder. Set aside.
On a separate bowl mix the yogurt or the milk with the honey. Raw honey tends to be very thick, so make sure to dissolve it very well in the milk or yogurt. Add the mix of flours and stir with a wooden spoon. Continue with the mixture of eggs and carrot, stir in, and combine all the ingredients very well.
Finally add the grated zucchini, chopped walnuts, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Mix well and place on a baking pan.
