Vietnamese Cinnamon

This is seriously a super healthy bagel. It’s full of whole grains and no refined sugars. The special ingredient to this bagel is the Vietnamese Cinnamon. Until a few months ago, I didn’t even know that Vietnamese Cinnamon even existed!

Vietnamese Cinnamon which has recently  gained some popularity originated in Vietnam. This cinnamon admittedly makes a good first impression in terms of sheer aroma and taste. It tends to be even more spicy and strong and sweet at the same time. Although, it’s a little more expensive than Cassia Cinnamon it is surely worth the extra buck because it has the highest levels of Coumarin.

Truth About Buckwheat

If you have never baked or even tried Buckwheat, let me warn you that this fruit seed is strong and a little on the bitter side. Although many people believe that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually related to rhubarb. This cereal grain is a GREAT substitute for people who are sensitive to wheat or protein gluten. A cool fact about the Buckwheat flowers, is that they are very fragrant and honey bees use them to produce a special, strongly flavored, dark honey. 🙂

The honey is called Buckwheat Honey and it is strong yet simply sweet!!  🙂
