Great recipe, but I could've added more sugar. I only used 2 tbsp. of maple syrup and 1 tbsp of honey and i used an extra 1/2 c. of cranberries...So a little more sugar would've helped.  So, next time I'll just add more sugar and it'll be perfect!

I used a couple tbsp of applecause instead of the egg, and applesauce instead of the oil. I didn't have any walnuts, so I just omitted those.

For a nice little treat I crumbed some graham crackers, sprinkled them with cinnamon, and put that on top of the muffins as a crust.

So.....use more sugar than only 2 tbsp maple syrup and 1 tbsp honey and you'll be good to go!!
