Do you miss cinnamon rolls?

There is a simple cinnamon roll substitute that has been popular in homes of the mid-west for years. Fresh cinnamon rolls contain tyramine due to the fresh risen yeast and may also contain other triggers in the dough. If you make them yourself at home and wait 24 hours to eat them, then you are okay. However, if you want a quick cinnamon roll substitute that is a little bit more healthy, here is a simple trick.

Cinnamon-Sugar Toast

4 pieces bread, trigger-free (100% whole wheat or whole grain is healthier)
1 teaspoon cinnamon plus 2 teaspoons sugar or Splenda granular, mixed

Toast the bread and immediately spread a very thin layer of butter over the top. Shake the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the butter, then shake off the excess. Enjoy!

  1. So cinnamon, itself, doesn't contain tyramine?
