This easy overnight oats recipe is vegan and gluten free.  You can eat it cold, or heat it up in the morning.  I personally love making these with steel cut oats and eating them cold.  It reminds me of the boxed cereal that I used to eat.  I used dried cherries in my recipe, but you can use fresh as well.  I hope you enjoy.

Sun Dried Tomato Hummus

I have been on a huge sun dried tomato kick lately.  This sun dried tomato hummus recipe is one of my favorite things lately.  I have made it a couple times and I thought I would share it with all of you.  Regular hummus can get a bit boring.  So sometimes you have to mix it up a bit.  If you like hummus, you may also like my Roasted Jalapeno Hummus.

Blueberry Bliss Bars

I don’t know if you noticed, but I love recipes that use only a few ingredients.  These Blueberry Bliss Bars are just that.  All you need is 4 simple ingredients to make these blueberry bliss bars!  This no bake recipe is perfect for summer.  I know I don’t want to spend time in my kitchen with the oven on.  It’s hot down here in Dallas!

Blueberry Bliss Bars - My Whole Food Life

These blueberry bliss bars are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  This was my first time using coconut cream and I have to say that it was pretty much exactly like coconut butter.  The only difference I noticed, was that coconut cream seemed to soften faster out of the fridge.  Another great thing you could do with these no bake bars is drizzle a little of my 3 ingredient chocolate over the top.  Yum!  If you do that, then you will need to keep the bars in the freezer.
