In bowl, whisk together strained tomatoes, molasses, vinegar, half of the mustard and the Worcestershire sauce; set aside.

In separate bowl, mix together beef, carrot, zucchini, wheat bran, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, pepper and remaining mustard; stir in 3 tbsp of the tomato mixture. Roll into 8 balls; place each in separate well of nonstick muffin pan. Spoon remaining tomato mixture over top of meat loaves.

Bake in 400 F (200 C) oven until instant-read thermometer inserted in centres reads 165 F (74 C), 12 to 14 minutes. Discard any liquid remaining in pan.
