Paleo Zucchini Bread

I had a zucchini to use up the other day.  That is how this paleo zucchini bread came about.  I wanted to do a banana zucchini bread made with coconut flour.   I also wanted my paleo zucchini bread to be only sweetened with dates.  I am very please to tell you that this paleo zucchini bread came out great!  If you like treats only sweetened with dates, you may enjoy this and this as well.

Not only is this zucchini bread paleo, it is also vegan and gluten free.  I threw some chocolate chips on the top.  I honestly think the bread is great on it’s own, I was just trying to make it look good for the photo.  Feel free to add the chips or leave them off.

Blueberry Muffin Bites

I just love these blueberry muffin bites. Who doesn’t like a blueberry muffin?  They remind me of the blueberry muffin larabar.  In fact, I used similar ingredients.  My daughter loves that flavor, so I thought I would make some for her. I’m sure by now, you know that I love homemade larabars. 🙂 These no bake bites came out so good! Not only are these delicious, but they are very easy to make!

Roasted Garlic Hummus Veggie Burgers

I just love homemade veggie burgers.  The reason homemade veggie burgers are so great is because you can control the ingredients.  I have several veggie burger recipes on my blog already.  These roasted garlic hummus veggie burgers are my latest creation.  Yes I made burgers with hummus.  It’s a super easy recipe!

Hummus Veggie Burgers - My Whole Food Life

Pacific Foods recently sent me some samples of their new shelf stable hummus and I knew I wanted to make a veggie burger recipe with one of the flavors.  I used the roasted garlic hummus in this veggie burger recipe.  It is so yummy!  You may have heard me talk about Pacific Foods in my post about vegetable broth.

I do make my own hummus as well, but these shelf stable hummus packs are great for when you are on the go.  It could be a snack after sports, or at the beach or on a picnic.  I love that this hummus contains simple ingredients you would use in your own kitchen.  No funny stuff.  It comes in 3 delicious flavors.  Classic, roasted garlic, and roasted red pepper.   The reason I wanted to make a veggie burger with the hummus, is because I wanted to show you that hummus can be so much more than a spread.  It added great flavor to these veggie burgers.

Homemade waffles are a staple at our house.  My kids love them.  I always make a big batch and freeze them.  That way, they are really no different than the frozen waffles in a box.  They are different in one way.  My homemade waffles contain no refined sugars, no refined flours and no other strange ingredients. These Mixed Berry Waffles are perfect for spring.  My kids just love fresh berries, so I knew these would be a hit.  I was excited to test out my new waffle maker too.  I was happy that it could make 2 waffles at at time!
