Healthy homemade cinnamon baking chips!
Whenever I am making bread, cookies or brownies, I always have the urge to mix in some sort of sweet thing into the batter. If I’m making chocolate chip cookies, I might add in white chocolate chips. If I’m making banana bread, I want to sprinkle in raisins and walnuts. If I’m making brownies, I can’t resist throwing in dark chocolate chips and maybe even a swirl of peanut butter for good measure.
We’ve got endless reasons to use chocolate chips in baking but when it comes to cinnamon flavored mix-ins, we need to step it up! These cinnamon chips are so easy to whip up but are so much healthier than anything you’ll find from Hershey’s. They are also the most scrumptious, chewy and sweet substitute for chocolate chips. These little bites have a full robust cinnamon flavor that will add incredible spice to all your favorite recipes.
Forget about chocolate (for awhile)…. Cinnamon chips will have you making a long list of batters to throw these cinnamon bites into. Store them in the fridge to use anytime an urge strikes! We’ll share the perfect bread to start with next week! See you soon!
Healthy Cinnamon Baking Chips (gluten-free and vegan option)
1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Agave or Honey
Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees. Line an 8 by 8 dish with parchment paper.
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl until everything comes together into a soft paste. Spread the mixture out in the baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 17-18 minutes. The mixture will become a little bubbly.
Place the dish in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to cool. Cut into small squares and add to all of your favorite recipes! If not using right away, store in the refrigerator. The chips will soften and fuse slightly together if stored in a warm place.
