Carrot Raisin Bran Muffins

I picked up this great book at the library. I have oodles of things bookmarked, but this is the first recipe I actually tried. And I already have late fines on the book. Oops! Oh well, this recipe is worth it.

1 C Natural Bran
1 C Buttermilk
2 Large Eggs
1/2 C Unsweetened Applesauce
1/3 C Vegetable Oil
3/4 C Packed Brown Sugar
1 1/4 C All-Purpose Flour
1/2 C Whole-Wheat Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 C Grated Carrot
1/2 C Chopped Pitted Dates, Raisins, or Cranberries (I used raisins)

Combine first 6 ingredients in one bowl. Combine the dry ingredients in another bowl, and toss with the carrot and raisins until coated. Add flour mixture to bran mixture and stir until just combined. Spoon into 18 prepared muffin cups. Bake at 400' for 20-22 minutes.
