I made these two days ago. They were very good! Weren't very sweet though, so I think next time I'll add 1/4 cup light brown sugar. I added more almonds instead of raisins, used olive oil instead of corn oil and I used equal amount of mashed banana to replace the apple. My parents especially liked these (they've reached the age where very sweet things give them headaches)! I'll definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing your great recipe with us :)!
