In case you haven’t noticed, cinnamon is pretty amazing. However, since you’re here, you probably already know that. What you may not know is just how many recipes use cinnamon in incredible and unique ways. You should destroy your kitchen and try them all–immediately. Somebody else can clean up.
1. Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
Pumpkin. Cinnamon. Rolls. Have you ever heard three more beautiful words? This recipe just screams, ‘chilly weather and a fireplace.’
2. Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls
Is pumpkin not really your thing? No problem, simply stop reading and go rethink your life. I kid! A great alternative are these delectable chocolate cinnamon rolls.
3. Cinnamon Infused Hot Chocolate
Speaking of cold weather, this recipe is the perfect way to put a twist on an old and much beloved classic. Any excuse to indulge in a mug of hot chocolate, or five, right?
4. Cinnamon Orange Hot Chocolate with Cinnamon Tinted Mexican Wedding Cookies
Yeah, that’s right. Things just got real up in here. In case you thought the hot chocolate was mere child’s play, here’s not one, but two recipes that are exploding with cinnamon. You’re welcome.
5. Baked Churros
A slightly healthier version of the traditional fried churros. Very slightly, and also very tasty.
6. Cinnamon and Banana Cookies
This sound like an odd combination. In fact, I don’t think I’ve even heard of a banana cookie before. It certainly sounds good, and surely Donna Hay wouldn’t steer us wrong!
7. Cinnamon Cider Sticks
Just when you thought that cider couldn’t get any better!
8. Cinnamon Ice Cream
I know it’s winter for all of you Northern Hemisphere folk, but I’m currently boiling my little Australian butt off and desperately need some ice cream. Besides, is it ever too cold for ice cream?
9. Mulled Wine Recipe
In case my ice cream rant has left you a little chilly, this mulled recipe will certainly warm you up. It’s the festive season, after all, so get yourself a cheeky little liquid cheer.
10. Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Cake
This is a seriously simple, but delicious cake that can be easily thrown together with what you have on hand, at home. Perfect for a last-minute dinner party or just when you have a sugar craving.
11. Seared Salmon with Cinnamon and Chili Powder
Alas, it can’t all be sweets. The good news is that cinnamon is far more versatile than you may have first expected. This recipe is simple, but incredibly fresh and vibrant.
12. Baked Cinnamon Donuts
A classic favourite that’s baked, not fried. That means that I can have 5 of them, right?
13. Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake
In case I was a little too subtle earlier, I should establish that I love pumpkin. A lot. Two of my other favourite things are coffee and cheesecake, so basically the Pumpkin Spice Latte Cheesecake is my spirit animal. I know that this makes me sound crazy, and I’m comfortable with that.
14. Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread
Oh, banana bread, you saucy minx. You’re good at anytime of day, particularly toasted at breakfast time. The generous cinnamon addition only makes you more delectable.
15. Cinnamon Sugar Scones
What’s better than a lovely afternoon tea, featuring scones? That’s right, cinnamon sugar scones.
16. Cinnamon French Toast
Hey, since we’re already on the breakfast train, I decided to make it a trio.
17. Hot Buttered Apple Cider with Rum
So what if this is the second alcoholic beverage on the list? It sounds incredible, and all work and no play makes Tegan a dull girl.
18. Apple Pie Tiramisu
I’m almost weeping at the mere existence of this thing. Apple pie. Tiramisu. Together. What kind of wizard conjured such a culinary masterpiece? Can I marry that wizard?
19. Pumpkin Brown Butter Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting
I thought we’d been over this. Pumpkin and cinnamon are a match made in heaven. And by ‘heaven,’ I mean my stomach.
20. Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Hot Cross Buns
Christmas has just ended, which means we’re probably about two weeks away from seeing Easter eggs hit the supermarket shelves. Okay, so that may be a slight exaggeration, but we all know that I’m not far off. My philosophy is that if the shops can celebrate early, so can my taste buds.
This classic cookie is always a crowd pleaser.
22. Homemade Cinnamon and Lemon Crumpets with Raspberry and Honey
Speaking of breakfast recipes, this is another gorgeous choice that’s absolutely perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.

This recipe blew my mind, not only due to how tasty it sounds, but also because I had no idea that cinnamon chips were a thing. Well played, America.

Because sometimes you shouldn’t have to choose between sweet and savoury.

“You can’t beat babka” – Seinfeld
26. Lahmahjoon Pizza
Literally spice up your pizza with this delicious Middle Eastern recipe.
27. Cinnamon Sugar Pinhwheels
These bad boys look a lot more delicious than the pinwheels you put in your hair.
28. Cinnamon Sugar Waffles
Who doesn’t love waffles? The best part is that the heat from the waffle iron converts the cinnamon into an extra crunchy topping.
29. Spiced Peaches
The inclusion of fruit makes this recipe healthy, right?

Another great example of how savoury and sweet belong together.
