Great Harvest Cinnamon Chip bread is one of those things that gets me super excited. Like, I will get up early in the morning and drive to the store to get a loaf of that stuff. And if you know me, you know what a big deal that is. 

In fact, I have literally run a half-marathon to get this bread. Okay, so that wasn’t the entire goal, but they serve Great Harvest bread at the finish line of the Mayor’s Marathon in Anchorage, and all finishers get a free pieces, so there you go. It’s just that good.

And this recipe is so close to the real deal, that it might as well be it. The white bread is slightly dense and sweet, and the little bursts of cinnamon are pretty much heaven. This makes excellent french toast and bread pudding, but it’s just perfect warm from the oven with a little bit of butter 🙂

Now, let’s switch gears. Does anybody know why there are no cinnamon chips to be found in Logan, Utah? Because there aren’t, and there haven’t been for 3 years. I’ve always been able to find them literally everywhere else I’ve lived, but not here. 

I finally had to figure out how to make them on my own. If you are living in a similarly cinnamon chip free area, this recipe makes a chip that tastes like store-bought ones, but I will warn you, they do not look nice. They look like this when they come out of the oven:

Once you break it up, they look like this:

The first time I made them, I thought they were burnt because of the dark color. But, they look and taste just like regular cinnamon chips once they’ve been baked. But yes, I know they look a little scary. So if you’re brave enough to give it a shot, I’ll include the recipe below.
