So I've finally ditched the dairy. (Except for heavy cream and butter. Yes, I realize I'm still eating dairy this way, but believe me, this is a huge reduction because I was previously consuming copious amounts of cheese, yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese, etc.)
I love cinnamon. Used to use a lot of it in yogurt -- as in, do I want some yogurt with my cinnamon? ;-)
So now that my primary cinnamon delivery vehicle is gone, what else can I put cinnamon on? Once in a while, I add some to my coffee, but that ain't enough, folks.
I think there are a ton of smoothie recipes out there that I could load up with cinnamon, but I hardly ever do smoothies. (Maybe I should remedy that?)
One thing I do already is canned pumpkin (plain, not the pie mix, obviously)-- great w/cinnamon.
I'm not really into the "Paleo treats," so I'm looking for suggestions outside the realm of "Paleo snickerdoodles," or "Paleo cinnamon rolls," know what I mean? ;-) Are there any savory dishes that call for a lot of cinnamon? (Sweet potatoes just occurred to me, but I eat relatively low carb. I'll have a sweet potato now and then, but they're not a staple for me.) I would imagine there are some Moroccan or Indian dishes that I could use more cinnamon than is normally called for, hehheh.
a lot of cuisines use cinnamon as a spice. Moroccan, Indian, Lebanese, Middle Eastern, Turkish, etc.
so plenty there.
Also apples and cinnamon are amazing together
MY KIND OF QUESTION! Am I weird? I just had a 2-egg omelette cooked with a bit of coconut oil and Kerrygold Butter, stuffed with half a small avocado, and topped with raw sauerkraut, paprika, garlic, and a bit of ....cinnamon. I mess with cinnamon all over the place, especially in my coffee... but I LOVE IT with savory stuffs! DO IT DO IT!
I make cinnamon apples all the time. You could also make a cauliflower "rice" with coconut milk and cinnamon on top... maybe some pecans? nom nom nom rice pudding.
Also on ribs, plantain chips, etc.
Edit: I forgot, I grill bananas and top it with cinnamon and nuts.
Some Cuban and other Central American dishes use cinnamon, too. Here's an example: http://mary-sews.blogspot.com/2011/11/picadillo-again.html
I sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon (as well as a buttload of other spices) onto pork chops.
I also add some cinnamon when I make mashed butternut squash (which I pour a buttload of ghee on, which I think would be okay for you to use even though you've given up dairy).
