“I love cinnamon. When I started my diabetic diet, they told me that cinnamon actually helps the insulin work and promotes health in a diabetic. SO, with that in mind, I started using tons of it. I LOVE it, so that wasn't a problem for me. I use it on lots of food, sweets and savories. This recipe is one of my favorites. I usually cut it in half for myself, but if you're preparing them for a party or a family, you'll want to make the whole batch.”
