Apple season is upon us, which means you'll need recipes to put the tangy, crisp fruit to use. Here, we rounded up nine plant-based recipes that call for apples and a sweet tooth.

Start by making our dairy-free apple parfait made with a cashew-based cream, cinnamon, maple syrup, and an array of spices. Or, savor our baked cinnamon apple oatmeal for breakfast, a healthier spin on apple pie made with all-natural ingredients.

Dig into our two types of apple crisp, one made in a microwave-safe mug that's ready in just three minutes, or our chai apple crumble with its sweet aromatic spice combination. If you're craving a granola-style sweet, make our vegan and gluten-free apple crumble bars with a thick middle layer of apple butter. Share the recipe you made with us on social so we can repost and share your masterpiece!

Since it's only the start of apple season, stay tuned for more recipes added to this list in the upcoming weeks!
