What does SnapChat, breakfast, and Christmas have in common? Paleo maple cinnamon sweet potato breakfast bake of course! Now I know that’s a mouthful (literally), but this warm and delicious comfort food is easy to make and will delight the whole fam this holiday season.
I’m kind of a SnapChat addict, I’ll admit. I probably Snap my mom and sister 30+ times a day. Told ya. But it’s so much easier sending videos of my kids through SnapChat than record them on my phone, only to delete previous videos because I have no space, then text ALL the vids to them. Ummm no. I have a life…(no I don’t).
Recently, I convinced my sister-in-law to get on my communication of choice. I’m not sure if she’s as addicted yet, but give it time. One morning she Snapped me a video of her kids eating an oatmeal bake for breakfast and I was like “EURKA! I need to make one of those!”
Welllll, I rarely have oats in my house. The last little bit I had was used for this healthy apple pie granola and I wasn’t about to load my crazies up (which takes around 62 minutes) just to go to the grocery store. What’s a girl to do? Well first of all, Snap back (because that’s the polite thing to do), then improvise and make a paleo version of an warm, oat-like breakfast that might rival that traditional oatmeal bake.
I wish SnapChat had a scratch and sniff feature. ‘Cause after this beautiful orange dish of heaven was baked, I proceeded to Snap the crap out of it to my peeps. I like to tease them like that – but it would have been such a better virtual experience if they could’ve smelled it too. Come on Apple, get on this…
This paleo maple cinnamon sweet potato breakfast bake takes a little planning and prep, but trust me, it’s worth it. I picture making this on Christmas morning for my family, as we sit in our PJ’s around the fireplace, and enjoy a relaxing day…
BAHAHAHA JK we’ll be driving 7 hours from my parents house to my in-laws house on Christmas morning with an infant, a toddler, and our dog, in sub-zero temps with very little options of places open to grab a bite. For realz, this is our holiday, every holiday. At least we never hit traffic. #silverlining
In my world, it’s perfectly acceptable to make this maple cinnamon sweet potato bake the night before our big trip, heat it up at the crack of dawn when we leave, and eat it straight out of the dish while I insist on Christmas music the WHOLE drive (to my husband’s dismay). Oh and have my iPad fully charged with lots of Daniel Tiger downloaded to keep my toddler quiet and all of us sane. Or in his words, “Ti-Ga-Ga”.
