Easy Blender Cilantro Lime White Bean Hummus

I’m a girl who likes to snack on hummus.

Easy Blender Cilantro Lime White Bean Hummus. Smooth and creamy, packed with fresh flavors!

Smooth, creamy bean dip flavored with fresh ingredients like cilantro and limes is always sure to satisfy my 3pm snack cravings.

Easy blender cilantro lime white bean hummus is super easy to make at home. No chopping veggies. Minimal cleanup. If you’re like me and you don’t own a large food processor, your blender will save the day!

You  may think of chickpeas when you think of hummus. But I’m going to change your thought process on that. I made my hummus with white beans. Using white beans results in a smoother, milder hummus. It’s perfect for those who don’t like chickpeas. Ken doesn’t like chickpeas. One time he said “I do not like those things” after I showed him a can of chickpeas. But he liked my cilantro lime white bean hummus.

I like my hummus packed with fresh flavors. Cilantro, lime and chipotle are a few of my most favorite flavors to use in salsa and marinades. Since I love those flavors so much, I decided to make a white bean hummus with them. I packed this hummus full of cilantro, lime juice, garlic and chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. The chipotle pepper lends a tiny bit of heat, for those who love a little kick of heat in their dips. If you’re not a fan of heat, you can omit it.

I used gluten free rice and almond crackers for dipping. But you can use your favorite chip, cracker or veggie for dipping. Or you can eat it straight from the bowl with a spoon.

Homemade Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal

I love making oatmeal for breakfast. It’s fast, easy and I can customize the flavor to whatever I’m craving on any given day.

Homemade  Maple Brown Sugar  Oatmeal | This Gal Cooks

I used to buy packet oatmeal but that doesn’t happen anymore. Old fashioned oats are ready in 5 minutes.  Adding favorite ingredients takes even less time. Maple brown sugar oatmeal has always been my favorite flavor. Adding pecans and mini chocolate chips makes it even better.

The good thing about this oatmeal is that it can be made ahead of time. After preparing, place in storage containers and store in your refrigerator. In the morning, just grab and take along with you. My trick for preventing clumpy next day oatmeal is to add a dash of coconut oil to the oatmeal. The oatmeal stays smooth and creamy, just like it is right after it’s made.

The other good thing about this oatmeal is that it takes less than 10 minutes to make. So even if you aren’t making it ahead of time, you can still have it ready quicker than the takeout window will.

This oatmeal starts with old fashioned oats. You can use quick cooking oats too but adjust your cooking time accordingly. After the oats are cooked, half and half, maple syrup and brown sugar are mixed in. If making ahead of time, I add a pinch of coconut oil to the mixture. Place the cooked oatmeal into bowls or storage containers. Top each serving with chopped pecans and mini semi sweet chocolate chips. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon for extra flavor. To reheat make ahead oatmeal, microwave for 1 minute.

OH, the other good thing about this oatmeal really isn’t about this oatmeal. It’s Friday. I have the next two days off. Life is good. HAPPY DANCE TIME!
