Marvelous Baked Paleo Apple Cinnamon Pancake

Marvelous Baked Paleo Apple Cinnamon Pancake

Happy Veterans day and a huge thank you to all the wonderful men and women who have served in our armed forces.

I’m sure some of you are enjoying the day off maybe celebrating with your loved ones or just relaxing at home.  Whatever you do make sure you take some time to thank or think about those who have served.  After all, that’s what this day is all about!

Today I’ve just got a few Marvelous things to share with you then The Love Nugget and I are off to honor our Veterans at a fun parade and carnival downtown.

For this Marvelous addition I’m linking up with Katie at Healthy Diva Life for Marvelous Monday!

Going to bed at 9:15 Saturday night and getting a good full 8 hours of shut eye.  Big partier over here on a Saturday night!  Obviously I was tired!

A delicious breakfast that included a baked Pancake I thought up first thing yesterday morning.

Guess my well rested brain was hungry for  pancakes!

However, I wasn’t in the mood to stand at the stove flipping cakes so a baked one came to mind and since I had just picked up some Honeycrisp apples this is what was created,

It was a big hit with the whole family and this entire dish was pretty much gone except for a few small pieces.

I think it was made even better by topping it with this amazing Honey Cinnamon Spread from Cultured Kitchen.

Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing more about this spread and their other amazing products soon!

Getting to see one of my besties yesterday before she flew home from visiting her family up North.

It may have only been for a few hours but it was marvelous!  Looking forward to seeing more of her in a few weeks for Thanksgiving!

An afternoon walk to the park without my phone to interrupt some good quality family time :-)

The reintroduction of Siggi’s grass-fed dairy yogurt topped with a delicious all natural, grain-free, granola called ChiaNola.

ChiaNola has definitely become a hit in our household since it tastes similar to an oatmeal cookie and is made with wholesome ingredients.  It’s packed with rich Omega-3 chia seeds which we love!

It was delicious over my yogurt but I’ve also enjoyed it in a bowl of unsweetened vanilla almond milk or sprinkled over a green smoothie.  The Love Nugget’s been eating on top of his plain yogurt mixed with applesauce.

He loves it!

That’s it for today!  Hope you all have a wonderful day and again, take some time to thank a Veteran!

QUESTIONS – 

  • How late do you stay up on the weekends?  
  • What’s your week night bedtime and how many hours of sleep do you get on average?  
  • Have you tried ChiaNola before?

  1. That pancake bake recipe looks so good! I need to try that.

    Lately I’ve been getting some good sleep (at least 8 hours) but that changes all the time. Weekends I’m up pretty late but am fortunate I can sleep in for endless hours :)

  2. I’ve been on this pancake kick for the past month, so I’m excited baked pancake a try. It looks delicious and I think my husband would like it too!

  3. Those pancakes look really good!! Glad you had a great weekend and uninterrupted time with the fam :) Those are always the best! I don’t stay up too late on the weekends, either, ha. I like my sleep! Maybe like midnight at the latest, but I like to keep it to 11 or 11:30.

  4. looks amazing!

  5. I’ve never heard of baked pancakes! They look good!

  6. The pancake sounds and looks marvelous! It’s so special to see friends, especially the ones you don’t get to see very often. I know I can’t wait for Christmas to see my friends and family in Minnesota! I hope you and the little one enjoy the parade. It’s always good to remember to be thankful for all our service men and women do!

  7. I love the sound of that baked pancake! I’m with you on not being in the mood to flip pancakes sometimes… Plus you can’t beat the comforting smell that comes from the oven.

    My sleep schedule is kind of wonky. I usually go to bed around 10, but my body only likes about 6 hours of sleep so I wake up around 4 or 5.

  8. ChiaNola sounds fun! I bookmarked their site so I can check it out later. ;)
    I usually go to bed around 10:30 or 11pm on the weekdays & get up between 6:30-7:30, depending on if I have a workout planned that day before work. Glad you got some much deserved sleep! :) The baked pancakes look great!!

  9. That pancake looks yummy!

    I am sleeping pretty good these days, although I never know when my sleep will be interrupted. Little buddy must be starting to dream because I hear him talking in his sleep! Sometimes he wakes up crying too. So on a good night, 8 solid hours – from about 9:30 to 5:30. Not much deviation on the weekends unless we have plans. Like this coming weekend we are going the the Auburn vs Georgia game, so it’ll likely be a late night.

  10. I have no problems going to bed early on the weekends! Sometimes I’m in bed by 9:00, but I’d rather get my sleep and start my day off on the right foot then to wake up feeling not so great the next morning.

  11. This looks so good! I love doing baked pancakes! Glad you a great weekend! It’s funny, I think I actually go to bed earlier on the weekends because I’m so tired!

  12. That is one THICK and FLUFFY pancake!!! YUM!!
