Can agave or honey be used instead of brown sugar on cinnamon rolls?

I used to make my own cinnamon rolls with brown sugar and shredded apples as the topping before rolling up the whole wheat dough and cutting. Would agave or honey work or would it be too moist? I live in a very dry climate in AZ.

I always spread my dough with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.  I do not put any butter on the dough before the honey.  I then sprinkle with whatever other filling I want.  They are delicious.  Terry
