Fall is here and you know what that means—it’s apple season!

Apple Cinnamon Oats make the perfect healthy fall breakfast. Apples are full of vitamins and antioxidants, and they’re a great source of fiber, too. The combination of apples, cinnamon, vanilla and maple sweetness in this recipe is simply divine. This healthful breakfast is dairy-free, and full of fiber and nutrients.  Oats are naturally gluten free, but check the label to make sure they have not been exposed to cross contamination if you are highly allergic.
