Cinnamon-Almond Balls

Who already started to bake Christmas cookies? The first cookie jars at home are filled with chocolate-walnut brownies, nougat croissants and Christmas Stollen. These are the classics alongside shortbread, gingerbread and Spekulatius. But why not try some lesser known alternatives? On Pinterest, I discovered a recipe for cinnamon balls and was so enthusiastic about the simple preparation and few ingredients that I directly baked my own cinnamon-almond balls. Those of you who like energy balls and cinnamon will love these delicious and healthy cinnamon-almond balls! The preparation takes max. 10 minutes plus 10 minutes baking time in the oven. It is especially nice to sprinkle the baked cinnamon-almond balls with icing sugar. If you don’t like icing sugar, you can also roll the balls in grated coconut.

Warm Cinnamon-Almond Balls are the best!

Desserts & Sweet Treats/ Snacks


Today’s post is again about a winter dessert, baked pears. For me, baked food tastes so much better than if you just let it cook. A kitchen without an oven is not a kitchen! So that’s why you will find lots of more oven recipes on my blog? Stay excited! And by the way, while writing this post I am eating baked brussels sprouts with walnuts and pomegranate seeds …

So back to the pears. Recently I experimented a lot with semolina, almond butter, cinnamon and Co. and I have to say the results are always very tasty. On top, it does not take more than 10 minutes to prepare the semolina and you can mix it with berries, chocolate, almonds, almond butter, vanilla, cinnamon and much more… Maybe this recipe is even suitable to become the grande finale of a 4-course Christmas Dinner 🙂
