I love using (more) cinnamon. Especially breakfast- and snack recipes are a great way to sneek in more cinnamon. Cinnamon is really good for you. I would highly recommend to use the real cinnamon though, also known as Ceylon cinnamon. I wanted to create a true cinnamon delight, and with as little ingredients as possible (so the flavor of the cinnamon would really come out).
Cinnamon is antiseptic, fights cold, is overall good for your immune system and for your intestines. Cinnamon is also great to calm you down, to reduce migraines/headache, and to stabilise your blood sugar level which can help with losing weight (no more sugar cravings).
These cinnamon cubes are super simple to make. You just need to make sure not to miss step one of the recipe. It makes all the difference. These are not ”bliss balls”, but delicious cinnamon cubes with almond flour and a generous dash of cinnamon. You only need ten minutes and a food processor.
Delicate little cinnamon cubes with just a few ingredients. A true delight for cinnamon lovers !
- 3 pitted Medjool dadels
- 1,5 cups (175 grams) almonds (raw, unroasted and unsalted)
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- Proces the almonds in the food processor to create almond flour. Don’t process them too long, because you will end up with almond butter. If you have almond flour set aside out two tablespoons of the almond flour for the coating of the cubes. Now, add the remaining ingredients and process until all is well combined. Make with your hands cubes. Per cube I used more or less half a tablespoon of the mixture. Top the cubes with the almond flour and more cinnamon. Keep in the fridge.
