Cinnamon Cookie Sandwich

As the name suggests, this recipe features cinnamon. Cinnamon is a popular spice that can be used in a variety of dishes. There are two main kinds of cinnamon: Cassia and Ceylon cinnamon.

  • “Ceylon: Also called "true cinnamon" is the most expensive type”1
  • “Cassia: Less expensive and found in most food products containing cinnamon”1

Cinnamon has been studied for its potential health benefits. Such health benefits include reduced risk of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.2 Both types of cinnamon (Ceylon and Cassia) may help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and other health problems; however, additional studies are needed to determine if one form of cinnamon is more beneficial than the other and to determine the safest and most effective dose.1
