7 Surprising Reasons to Eat More Cinnamon

There's good reason to use cinnamon for far more than just a dash in your morning coffee or tea. Cinnamon is known to enhance your antioxidant defenses, and it's been found to kill E. coli and many other bacteria. Its anti-inflammatory compounds help relieve pain and stiffness of muscles and joints due to arthritis.

It also helps prevent urinary tract infections, tooth decay, and gum disease, and helps with blood sugar control.

AIP - Classic Apple Pie
AIP ~ Classic Apple Pie   
Author: Mickey Trescott  

Ingredients for Filling:
  • 5 tart apples, peeled, quartered, cored, and sliced thinly
  • cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • tsp sea salt
  • lemon, juiced
Ingredients for Crust: 
  • 1 cup arrowroot starch
  • cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • tsp sea salt
  • cup coconut oil, cold
  • cup water, cold.
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. If you haven't measured out your coconut oil and water and then placed them in the refrigerator to cool, do it now.
  2. Place the apple slices in a large bowl. Fill a large pot with enough water to soak all of the apple slices, and bring it to a boil. When it is hot, pour the water into the bowl with the apples until they are just covered. Let them sit in the hot water for 8 minutes, and then place in a colander to drain and set aside while you make the crust.
  3. To make the crust, combine the arrowroot, coconut flour, palm sugar, and sea salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Using a pastry cutter, butterknives, or your fingers, cut in the cold coconut oil until you have pea-sized lumps. Add the cold water, and mix gently. The mixture will be crumbly and not like regular dough--don't over mix!
  4. Place the mixture into a 9-inch pie dish. Using your fingers, spread it evenly across the bottoms and up the sides. Prick some holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork. Again, the dough will not behave like regular pie dough, and the less you handle it the more flaky it will come out. Bake for 15 minutes and then set aside while you make the filling.
  5. Lay out a clean kitchen towel and pour the apple slices on it, blotting them dry. Combine the coconut palm sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl, and then add the dry apple slices and mix gently. Pour the mixture into the crust, arranging the slices as needed.Sprinkle the pie with lemon juice and place in the oven to cook for 30-35 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
  6. Let cool for 10-15 minutes and then serve.
