Recipes in this section include both raw food and whole "cooked" food recipes.  Many of these recipes will be plant-based along with a portion having animal-based products, often including a vegan or vegetarian option.  From my background and experience to the classes I've taught and in-home training, I cover many special types of food preferences from vegan to paleo to low glycemic (low sugar), meeting a wide range of deliciously healthy food connoisseurs.  

How to make cinnamon sugar healthier - 3 ways

How to make cinnamon sugar healthier - 3 ways

Recommended products

#1  Cinnamon Sugar -  using Coconut Sugar

With 1 cup coconut sugar and 2 tablespoons cinnamon powder.  Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than white sugar plus it has more minerals.  This is a great alternative for those getting off white sugar.  As you can see I just added both ingredients to a wide mouth mason or ball jar.  Instead of a shaker bottle I am using these sprouting lids that work great for sprinkling on the cinnamon sugar.  I will provide a link for the sprouting lids in the description area, which by the way, I use mostly for sprouting.  Again, these lids fit wide mouth jars.

#2  Cinnamon Sugar - using Xylitol

With 1 cup xylitol and 2 tablespoons cinnamon powder.  Xylitol is derived from the fibers of fruits and vegetables and is a sweetening “sugar free” substitute that is often used in natural toothpastes, gums, and candies.

#3 Cinnamon Sugar - using Stevia

With one half teaspoon stevia powder and one half teaspoon cinnamon power - yes, in equal amounts. Stevia a zero glycemic alternative for those trying to eliminate sugar as much as possible.  Simply mix them together like the last two recipes and sprinkle on a pinch at a time.
