Spicy Oatmeal Cookie Crisps

Spicy Oatmeal Cookie Crisps

Something about the smell of cinnamon makes me feel like the holidays are near.

Cinnamon just has a warm smell to it and I love putting it in just about everything.

Do you have something that comforts you?

I just remember the smell of cinnamon permeating my house when I was little.

I love everything about cinnamon.

It tastes good, smells good, the color is vibrant, but you know what?? It is also good for you.


Who would have thunk?

Did you know that cinnamon is actually one of the best spices for you?

Hell yes, bring on the cinnamon!!

Here a just a few of the benefits of the lovely spice cinnamon:

  • Can lower cholesterol
  • It has anti-fungal properties
  • Fights cancer!
  • Has been found to be a natural remedy for headaches and migraines
  • Helps stabilize sugar, which is great for weight loss
  • Just smelling it has been proven to boost cognitive function and memory
  • Has an anti-clotting effect in blood


Pass the cinnamon please!

I eat a lot of cinnamon, even before I knew how great it was for me. Now, it makes me feel even better about snacking on 1 or 2 of these delicious cookies.

These cookies are great to make in an extra batch and then give some to friends, coworkers or family.

I made extra to take to my dance rehearsal for the girls and I. We have our show coming up this Sunday for Eclipse and we are so excited but nervous too.

Enjoy these cookies and let me know if you have a favorite recipe or item that you love to use cinnamon in.
