Delicious Medicinal Cinnamon Toast 

World’s Best Cinnamon Toast

Not only is this cinnamon toast medicinal, it really is delicious! It’s the recipe recommended in my “Bag of Tricks” for fighting colds, flus and allergies!  

Another one of my recipe makeovers! Simple, Delicious, and extremely healthy.

Even yummier than the old-fashioned-traditional cinnamon toast which was heavily laden with processed white sugar and often made with refined white bread. Really unhealthy! This recipe is not only healthy, it’s medicinal! It fights colds and flus and pollen allergies! And more!

Ingredients

  • Toasted organic non-gmo whole grain bread of your choice or gluten-free, etcetera (nonorganic GMO bread is pro-inflammatory, avoid it!)
  • Organic virgin coconut oil (virgin is yummy while refined is not yummy)
  • Raw local honey (available at farmers markets, local apiaries, and natural food stores)
  • Organic cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Spread toast liberally with coconut oil
  2. Drizzle liberally with honey
  3. Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon

Note: For added health benefits and flavor, try Chocolate Cinnamon Toast by sprinkling with organic cocoa!

I’ve had this when I feel a cold coming on and I feel it being stopped in its tracks upon eating a slice of this delicious medicinal toast! Don’t wait for cold and flu season, enjoy it year-round, as it has many health benefits! Raw local honey fights seasonal pollen allergies!

*You may want to cut back on the quantity of honey though, if consuming regularly, or if you have diabetes.

*Increase the cinnamon if you have diabetes!

Some of the Benefits

Organic non-gmo whole grain toast: anti-inflammatory, reduces chronic inflammation, gastrointestinal health, lowers risk of diabetes, high in fiber

6 Ingredient Delicious Energy Boosting Anti-inflammatory Superfoods Chocolate-Coconut-Banana-Nut Pancakes

6 Ingredient Delicious Energy Boosting Anti-inflammatory Superfoods Chocolate-Coconut-Banana-Nut Pancakes

They look like chocolate cookies!

They will keep you satisfied until lunch!

Alternative names: Gluten-free Dairy-free No-added-sugar Paleo Pancakes -or- Fabulous Flourless Fritters!

I’m always tweaking recipes to make them healthier. Some of my goals are to make them:

  • delicious
  • simple
  • anti-inflammatory
  • nutrient dense
  • non-gmo
  • organic
  • health-enhancing
  • wholesome

Anti-inflammatory is a goal as inflammation is a global epidemic that causes a myriad of health issues, including the one I battle. The medications to control inflammation often fall short.

Implementing an anti-inflammatory regimen will do wonders for your health.

Simple is a goal as those of us with serious/chronic illnesses need quick, simple, nutritious foods we can prepare because we often lack the energy and stamina to prepare more involved recipes.

The original recipe was called “Runners’ Pancakes” by athletes, as they boost energy for running. The original recipe was just a banana and an egg. My version includes even more delicious energy boosting, anti-inflammatory, super foods!

Great for breakfast or snacks or a pre-workout snack for athletes!

Good hot or cold!

But don’t eat them too late in the day, as they are energy boosters and may make it hard to fall asleep.

A note about coconut oil: it is not all created equal! Some brands are not yummy! Nutiva is yummy!

A note about eggs: free-range organic eggs are actually very good for you! Yolk and all! I will be blogging about the myths and many health benefits of eggs soon! Watch for it!

A note about cocoa: it’s really good for you! I was so excited to learn this as I LOVE chocolate!

Recipe 

Organic ingredients

  • A ripe banana
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 2-3 T cocoa powder
  • 1/4-1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • Coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Heat enough coconut oil to cover the bottom of your pan, liberally, over medium heat
  2. Mash banana on a plate with a fork
  3. Add cocoa and mix
  4. Whisk eggs in a bowl
  5. Add banana mixture
  6. Add nuts and seeds and whisk or stir
  7. Drop mixture into hot coconut oil, keeping them small: think silver dollar pancakes! I use a cookie dough scoop: 1-2 scoops per cake
  8. Cook 3-4 minutes and carefully flip, I usually use two spatulas as they are more delicate than traditional pancakes.
  9. Cook 2-3 minutes more
  10. Top with additional coconut oil, sliced bananas, nuts, and seeds. For a decadent treat/dessert, top with Nutiva Hazelnut Spread and raspberries – or top your own favorite toppers!
