Autumn is near and we're craving apples and warm spices. This is an easy breakfast (or snack) that helps to fulfill that craving. Fair warning: if you're serving kids, you may need to make more than you had planned! For variety, substitute any of your favorite jams or nut butters for the apple butter (chocolate hazelnut is fantastic!)
