A crunchy, satisfying, lightly sweet snack. Pack in your lunch box, hiking bag or set out as a healthy party snack.
I’ve been learning more about the benefits of spices lately. Cinnamon is known for its blood sugar properties (may help improve glucose & lipid levels) and tastes delicious. Try my Coconut Curry & Basil Crock Pot Chicken, an effortless savory dish using cinnamon, turmeric, ginger and garlic – three additional amazing, health boosting seasonings.
Super easy snack, dessert or salad topper!
