We love that spicy-sweet cinnamon is good for you — it's a metabolism booster, immune system supporter, cancer fighter, and blood sugar regulator! It's also loaded in vitamins and minerals, and can help fend off heart disease.

We know adding cinnamon to recipes isn't too challenging; after all, it's superdelicious and so versatile! But beyond the cinnamon rolls and sugary desserts, there are tons of healthy ways to add this flavorful spice to your everyday, nutritious recipes. Check out some of our favorites, from breakfast bakes to smoothies to fruity snacks.
