It is full of antioxidants, helps to lower blood pressure and has antiviral and anti inflammatory properties. All the more reason to sprinkle a little more cinnamon into your life.
I am betting you have a jar of this wonderful stuff in your pantry, so why not dig it out and try out some of these treats using this versatile spice. Don’t forget to let me know in the comments which cinnamon recipe is your favourite!
