              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!

                            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

                                    Recipe Source

                                    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

                                          Recipe Source

                                          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.

                                          21. Snickerdoodles

                                                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.

                                                  25. Cinnamon Babka

                                                        Recipe Source

                                                        These bad boys look a lot more delicious than the pinwheels you put in your hair.

                                                          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?
