These are yummy! I made a few changes; banana (mashed) and dried cranberries instead of pie filling. I used Agave nectar and date sugar, and fewer apples, more nuts. My version made 24 muffins plus a 9" cake pan. The muffins do kind of fall apart, not the type of thing you'd want to grab on your way out the door. But on a plate with coffee...Great way to start the day.
