There are numerous health benefits associated with cinnamon!
Cinnamon comes in 2 main varieties- cassia and ceylon . Cassia is far more popular and a little cheaper.
They both have very similar flavour profiles but research says that ceylon is where it’s at with all the health benefits as it far more potent in medicinal properties.
As little as half a teaspoon a day has been found to be beneficial but most studies recommend getting a teaspoon a day as a therapeutic dose to really maximize its’ benefits.
It is NOT recommended to take high doses of cassia cinnamon as it is high in coumarin (a blood thinner) and may interfere with medications and possibly lead to liver damage.
One teaspoon a day of ceylon cinnamon has shown to be extremely beneficial for decreasing your risk of heart disease, preventing and treating diabetes, decreasing risk of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases but please check with your healthcare professional to see if that amount is right for you.
It is known to be a powerful anti inflammatory and very helpful with pain management.
Cinnamon also contains natural antimicrobial, antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral properties and is very supportive for our immune system.
Cinnamon also supplies a wide variety of nutrients and is especially high in fiber and manganese along with several other vitamins and minerals.
This apple crisp recipe is an updated version of an old favourite. It’s literally the ultimate in comfort food! I wanted to create an apple crisp that was gluten free and refined sugar free, yet still had all of the traditional flavours. And this recipe is also vegan if you choose to use the unrefined coconut butter. You’ll want to use unrefined coconut butter

for this recipe as it doesn’t have the coconut flavour. Creamed butter is my favourite option flavour wise but I know many can’t tolerate dairy so do what works best for your dietary needs. Both options are tested and both yield great results.
