Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 inch pan. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon and set aside. In large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.
Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Stir in the cinnamon chips. Spread evenly in prepared pan (mixture will be similar to a cookie dough.) Combine white sugar and cinnamon in a little bowl. Evenly sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture over the top of the batter.
Bake 25 minutes or until surface springs back when gently pressed. Cool slightly. While still warm, cut into bars with a sharp knife.
