Cinnamon Apple Baked Oatmeal

Perfect for weekend breakfasts or to be made ahead of time, this recipe is reminiscent of apple pie, only it's made with simple ingredients, no added sugar, and no oil! It can also be made gluten free by using gluten free oats. It tastes indulgent, but it's packed with nutrition. That's what I call a win-win!
