Flourless Blondies

I was recently asked by a reader to create a flourless blondie recipe.  So that is how these flourless blondies came about.  If you had my super moist flourless brownies, you know that beans can work very well in dessert recipes.  These flourless blondies are so yummy.  I was eating the batter right out of the food processor.  That is one good thing about making healthy vegan desserts.  You can eat the batter without any fear of getting sick. :)

These healthy blondies are so good!  I am telling you no one will ever know there is beans in these.  Kind of like my peanut butter cookies.  My kids were totally fooled!  These blondies are vegan, gluten free.  If you want to make them grain free, you could probably use quinoa flakes in place of the oats.  Quinoa is technically a seed, not a grain.

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.
