Cinnamon is absolutely the winning ingredient of the recipe and deserves to be mentioned. It always reminds us of cozy nights full of joy and happiness. 

Cinnamon is also full of inflammation-fighting antioxidants that keep the body healthy. Research shows that cinnamon also has antidiabetic, antimicrobial, lipid-lowering, anticancer, and cardioprotective properties. 

Additionally, cinnamon can help protect the brain against neurological disorders, such as Alzherim’s and Parkinson’s disease (*). 

Be careful when picking out sugar-free maple syrup as many brands contain artificial sweeteners, such as aspartame, which have been linked to digestive disorders and even cancer (*).
