Cinnamon Sticks

These low carb and gluten free cinnamon sticks are just so moreish that you will not be able to stop at one!  Or maybe I was extra hungry after smelling the cooking as the scent of cinnamon cooking is one of my favourite smells.

I used my beloved coconut flour and a dash of psyllium husk powder to give this recipe a dough like mixture.   I am yet to try this with almond flour and would think that it should work just as good but just reduce the water as 1 cup may be too much.

As ever when making a dough with psyllium husk powder add the water a bit at a time as varieties of coconut flour and psyllium husk powder do vary.  You may not need as much I as used.

There is something about the cream cheese topping that just goes so perfectly with the cinnamon sticks too.  If you have any left over, put it in a dish and dip the breadsticks in.  You will not be dissapointed! I shall await my thank you letters for this suggestion….ha ha!
