Unlike most people, we traditional foodies go out of our way to eat more fat. Butter on your veggies is delicious, of course, but not all meals easily lend themselves to an extra helping of fat. Although I’ve occasionally eaten a plain slice of butter when truly desperate, these cinnamon butter bites are a far tastier way to meet your fat needs. Cinnamony, slightly sweet, and with a whipped taste vaguely reminiscent of frosting, I love reaching for these butter bites when I want to round out a fat-lacking meal or snack.
This recipe was inspired by the cinnamon kisses in the GAPS cookbook Internal Bliss.
1 pound butter (preferably grass-fed)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
20 drops SweetLeaf clear liquid stevia*
Allow butter to soften on your counter until it is slightly squishy.
Add butter, cinnamon, stevia, honey, and vanilla extract to your food processor. Process for a couple of minutes to mix ingredients and achieve slightly whipped taste. Stop food processor as necessary to scrape down the bowl and reincorporate ingredients.
Select a cutting board, baking sheet, or other flat surface that will fit into your freezer and line it with parchment paper. Spoon out dollops of butter mixture onto parchment paper-lined surface in whatever sizes you prefer. Freeze for an hour or two, then remove from parchment paper and store in a container in your freezer. Enjoy!
*Stevia is not allowed on GAPS but many people use it without issues. If you wish to avoid stevia, simply replace it with more honey to taste.
