Apple Cinnamon Pork Muffins

I saw this recipe for Apple Cinnamon Pork Loaf at Chowstalker and knew it had to be made into muffins for Mealpods!  The muffins look kind of lonely up there and if I were eating them for dinner I would probably add some sweet potatoes or coleslaw or both.  These are my lunch this week, though, so solo pork muffins it is!
