I'm giving it 4 stars as written, but 5 with the many modifications that I made. First off, as everyone suggested, this needs about 1/4-1/2 C of either applesauce or milk (I added 1/3 C milk). It also needs spices--I added 1/2 teaspoon each cloves and cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg. I also followed previous suggestions and upped the apples--2 large apples (about 3 cups), diced but with the peel left on. The Gala apples I used worked just fine, but perhaps Granny Smith or Rome Beauty would have been better. I used sour cream instead of butter (to cut the fat intake, but still keep it it moist and rich), and 1/4 C of honey, 1/2 C of splenda granular instead of the 1 C of sugar (we have a diabetic in the family). We're low on walnuts, so I only used a little over 1/4 C, but that was enough. Someone suggested a streudal topping. I found it easier to combine 1 tablespoon white sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and sprinkle on top of the muffins just before baking--left a nice crusty top. Finally, I baked this in 6 texas-sized muffin tins for 30 minutes...delicious!
