Cinnamon Bread Review!

One of my recent baking projects was a Cinnamon Bread I saw on Heather’s blog. Um…this stuff tastes like a big cinnamon roll! I don’t know how I hadn’t made it before!


My modifications were:

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup fat free buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2.5 oz. cinnamon chips – the BEST part of the bread  :)


Nick and I both loved this bread! It was so good still warm out of the oven – I can’t wait to try it on oatmeal  :)


The best part of this bread? The entire house smelled like sweet cinnamon while it was baking….I already want to make it again just so I can have it warm right out of the oven!

The only thing that could possibly make this bread better is a bit of healthy icing…maybe that will happen the next time I make it  :)

Thanks for posting the recipe, Heather! I have a feeling I’ll be making this bread again!


  1. WONDERFUL recipe!! Holy yum!!

  2. Wow, that bread looks great! I am so glad that you posted the recipe! I have never seen cinnamon chips before though, but I bet if I keep my eye out for them they’re probably right with the other baking chips…

    I love foods and baked goods like this that make your house smell so good! I just burned some stovetop oats and my house reeks, so this would be a great way to get rid of that smell!

  3. Yum! Where do you find cinnamon chips?

  4. Oh wow that looks so good!

  5. Umm…YUM!!! That looks seriously incredible. I will definitely need to be checking out Heather’s recipe! I love your idea for healthy icing, too :)

  6. Brandi,
    Your bread looks awesome. I need to try your version as mine ended up being a little too soft in the middle. I think I used too many cinnamon chips. Mmm, I forgot how good it smelled. Yep, I need to make this again soon. Thanks for the reminder.

    Oh, and another thing that could possibly make your bread better? ALMOND BUTTER :)

  7. yum. may i have a piece please!?

  8. omggggggg that bread looks amazing! thanks for sharing the recipe :) can u buy cinnamon chips at the regular grocery store? i’ve never seen them before! ah that sounds like heaven
