Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Apple Muffins with Oat Topping.

I miss those mornings when you just nip into a cafe and get a treat muffin for breakfast along with my usual bucket of coffee. I’ve got the coffee covered with my soya milk latte but I have been craving a big muffin to go along with it. I’ve made these apple muffins which are topped with oats. A lot has been written about whether or not oats are suitable for coeliacs, personally I can tolerate oats but only if they are certified gluten free. If you can’t have oats then they can be easily left out of this recipe.
