Hi there,

I just saw your question and if you like oatmeal, Which I do, I add cinnamon to it along with Ocean sprays,Craisins some chopped pecans or walnuts-(add to your desired taste or sweetness)

Also- in the winter or for me a chilly DAY in Florida-lol- will make a pot of strong coffee, then when I fill my BIG cup I Then add cinnamon to it with a dash of ginger then top it with whip cream & more cinnamon on top of that...YUM!! I spare nothing when it comes to my flavored coffees the whip cream in the can is high in calories..I THINK,,,Don't really think about it cuz im not drinkin it by the gallons...so endulge a little it's ok!

Hope you like it?

Hey Kim ... loved it ...I didn't think of coffee ..silly me ...of course ..I also like oatmeal and haven't had any for a while so thank you so much you have given me 'food for thought'  I love ginger and eat it a lot on any stir fries and salads now I will add it to coffee...

hey kim you can also try making cinnamon tea out of cinnamon sticks just let the cinnamon sticks boil in the water you can add a sweetner if you like, maybe you could also try it on whole grain toast with a little bit of sweetner

Wow that sounds good too!!! Thank you!! And I TOO have another one for you.....I used to make this when I was a little girl.....Wheat Bread what ever kind you like, I use a multigrain as apposed to a WHOLE WHEAT...but toast it to your liking as with the butter I use "Brummel & Brown with Yogurt" Spread take a pack of sweetener (I use & love Splenda) lightly sprinkle it on your toast all over and then the cinnamon...

I absolutely love it ....I am 44 so that was MY cinnamon bagel back in 1975--~.~ lol
Thank you again for the recipes and if i have another memory of cinnamon then I will pass it along and you too...

Take care and have a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much, I used to use the spread with yogurt you mention but I don't see it in stores here, I use a stevia mix so my guess is it will work the same maybe on toast ..it sounds good I may get addicted .

Marg, You're not really going to get enough by eating a little now and then.
Buy Gaia Cinnamon Bark at any health food store (it's a capsule)
