I LOVE Cinnamon!

I mean who doesn’t?? 😉

I add it too a lot of my food all year round, but at Christmas time it extra special as it brings that festive cheer!

Why Cinnamon ? 

  • Its great at balancing blood sugar and helping with insulin resistance.
  • It’s a warming spice, great to add to green juice or food on a chilly day.
  • Cinnamon is an anti microbial food, with an ability to help stop the growth of bacteria such as fungi, like candida yeasts.
  • Boost brain function, even just smelling the essential oil.
  • Tastes amazing!

Here is a great snack with all the healthy benefits of cinnamon!

Cinnamon Spiced Granola:

  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup of flaked almonds (optional)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon
  • dropperful of stevia or maple syrup,( I use stevia for low sugar content)
  • 1/4 cup of desiccated coconut

Heat oil in a saucepan, add all the other ingredients and stir on a low heat until well combined and warm. Then leave to cool.

Store in a glass jar and there you have your healthy grain free granola.

You can eat it how it is, which is how I like it, or add a little almond milk and fruit for a yummy snack too.

Enjoy!
