  • Whisk together baking mix, sugar, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, whisk together applesauce, buttermilk, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Fold in dry mixture until just combined, then gently fold in carrots, raisins, pepitas, and pecans.

  • Divide batter evenly among cups, filling each to the brim. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in pan 5 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.
