These are the best muffins that I have every made! They're sweet, nutty and full of apple flavor.

These were great! I didn't have any walnuts but they still came out wonderful. I found that the recipe made about 28 muffins and that it took me a lot longer to cook them than I was expecting. I thought the oven ought to be a little hotter. They were wonderful right from the oven and then cold later. Yum!! I will definitely make them again and again. Read More

Didn't care for these at all which dis- appointed me because the recipe sounded great! I took some to friends and they felt the same way. The muffins were "ok" but nothing special. I didn't finish making them and threw away the remainer of the batter I had left. Read More

I didn't want a large amount of muffins so I cut the servings back to 12 muffins. This presented a problem because I wanted to use a whole can of apple pie filling. What I did was cut the sour cream (I used fat free yogurt in it's place) back to a half cup and just went ahead with the full can of apple pie filling. Before adding the wet ingredients to the pie filling I mushed up the apples a bit with a pastry cutter. I didn't think there was enough apples in the pie filling so I peeled/cored/chopped one very large Honey Crisp apple and threw that in. We don't care for walnuts so I used pecans instead. These turned out okay. I think next time I'll make these with my changes and maybe see if I can't cut back on the sugar/butter/eggs to make them a little lighter. I might throw in some apple pie spice too. Good recipe to play with and a nice way to use that one can of apple pie filling in the pantry. Read More

I made these for my co-workers and have gotten only RAVE reviews! They are so moist and just the right combination of sweet and nutty. This is going to become one of my regular recipes! Read More

This is one of the best recipes I've tried. Left out the nuts but didn't change anything else and my mom actually ate 2 of them right out of the oven! This amazed me as she is an awesome cook and is very picky. This is definitely a keeper. Want to try this with cherry pie filling next time! Read More
