very good i substituted almonds for walnuts and added finely chopped apples along with the shredded loved it, my kids loved them so that makes it even better

I used what I had on hand: a spice cake mix, pecans, and pink lady apples. Made some frosting using a mock Cinnabon frosting recipe. They were delicious!! Great recipe!
