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.

Cherry Chocolate Energy Bites

These cherry chocolate energy bites are so good!  I know I have a lot of energy bites to choose from on my blog.   I am a big fan of no bake cookies and healthy energy bites.  I picked up some dried cherries the other day and that is how I had the inspiration to make these cherry chocolate energy bites.  These healthy energy bites would make a great pre or post workout snack.  In fact I just had a couple of them after my yoga class.
