Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, beat the egg, buttermilk, and oil; stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the apple, carrots, and walnuts.
Fill the prepared muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees 20-23 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes then remove from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
