Cinnamon Sweet Potato Bake

One of the defining qualities of an epic breakfast is the scent it creates while cooking. We’ve all experienced the joy of waking up to the smell of bacon lulling us out of our bedroom, the coffee maker emitting its heavenly aroma, and that Sunday morning french toast fills the house with a cloud of cinnamon spice!

This dish fits into that category quite nicely. Last weekend, my husband woke up very curious about what was happening in the kitchen.

For all the grain-free folks who miss the breakfast breads of years past, this bake will satisfy that starchy-comfort foody need we all have from time to time. Enjoy during a weekend brunch or make a large batch to split throughout the week for an easy breakfast!

PRODUCT ALERT//
Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
.
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
