Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

Time for another pumpkin recipe!  This time it’s pumpkin pie energy bites.  I already have a no bake pumpkin cookie recipe on my blog, but I wanted to create another one that would be great pre or post workouts.  These energy bites are packed with protein.  While these pumpkin pie energy bites are gluten free, they are not grain free.  If you wanted a grain free option for energy bites, you could probably just use nuts instead of oats.

You can make up these healthy energy bites in just a matter of minutes.  They also have no sugar added.  They are only sweetened with dates and cranberries.  I found cranberries at Natural Grocers that were sweetened with apples vs most cranberries that are sweetened with processed sugar.   I bet these energy bites would be great to put into your kiddos lunch boxes since they are nut free. :)

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 creamed coconut and I have to say that it was pretty much exactly like coconut butter.  The only difference I noticed, was that creamed coconut 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.
