Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Cinnamon is one of those spices that we should all be using as much as possible. It has tons of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties to help your body reduce inflammation and repair cell and DNA damage. Another really special thing about cinnamon is that it stabilizes blood sugar and increases insulin sensitivity. This is remarkable. A word of caution - if someone has a sensitivity to the food chemical benzoic acid, stay away from cinnamon, as it is loaded with it.

    I love this recipe for a simple, warm and comforting healthy treat! To make it vegan, I subbed maple syrup for the honey and only used 1 tablespoon – it was the perfect amount of sweet. I also used chopped pecans and the results were delicious! Thanks Andrea!
