Phyllo Cinnamon Lavender Sticks

Makes 10 sticks

Brody and Blake helped me make these for breakfast and both boys loved them, nonno did too! As Brody is allergic to milk he dipped his sticks into his latte and he loved them. Blake kept going back to the plate throughout the day just munching on pieces as he was hungry. The cinnamon lavender goes very well together. Great for breakfast, brunch or an evening snack.

They are not the simplest to twist and the look isn’t the best, but once baked the house smells delicious and they are delicious. Big win with my boys.
