Sugar and Cinnamon Sugar Dex+

This sugar blend is a good replacement for white sugar on your morning bowl of cereal, or on a tart pink grapefruit. You won't notice the fiber, and the sweetness is very similar.

You may also like a jar of cinnamon sugar. It's great for making cinnamon toast, and we like it on the Frozen Yogurt Dex+ too.

I have tried a variety of cinnamons, from Penzeys Spices: Korintje, China Cassia, Vietnamese, and Ceylon. Whichever kind you get, fresher cinnamon has a stronger, better flavor. Korintje is the "grocery" variety. Vietnamese has the same taste but is much stronger and better. Ceylon is the only "true" cinnamon, and reminds me of red-hots candy; not that it is hot, it's just a different note. I actually like a blend of Vietnamese and Ceylon.


Sugar and Cinnamon Sugar Dex+

Equivalent grams of sugar to grams in one cup of sucrose. 



  1. Combine ingredients and mix well. Can be mixed by shaking in a mason jar. 
  2. If using cinnamon, adjust to taste.

Cinnamon Toast Dex+
Do we really need a recipe for this? Well, maybe not, but I thought I'd share how I make it. 
  • Spray the rack lightly with cooking spray so the bread won't stick to it.
  • Soften the butter so it is easily spreadable.
  • Spread butter everywhere you want to have cinnamon, in other words, everywhere.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar evenly over the entire slice.
  • Turn on your oven broiler to the highest setting, and place the toast on the second highest rack. DO NOT walk away, or it will surely burn. Let it broil until the cinnamon sugar and butter become bubbly. Leave it in until you like how brown it is.
  • Don't wait, eat it immediately!
