A fresh cacao pod from the Dominican Republic used to make delicious gluten free black bean brownies


  • 1 ½ Cups Black Beans – drained and rinsed very well
  • ¾ Cup Nut Mylk – I prefer unsweetened coconut mylk
  • ⅓ Cup Cocoa Powder – my favorite brand is giddy yoyo
  • ½ Cup Gluten Free Flour – I prefer coconut flour
  • ¼ Tbsp Unrefined Salt – unrefined is much healthier
  • ½ Cup Maple Syrup
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract – alcohol free is healthier
  • ½ Tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • ½ Tsp Baking Powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or use blender on medium speed
  3. Bake at 350° for 15 – 20 minutes depending on oven heat
  4. Makes 10-12 brownies
  5. Freezing them once they have cooled down helps them to bind together. Ootherwise try using only use ½ cup nut mylk instead.

The blog intends to share more of that ✨

Her own life has included some shadow work that has led her on this path; including witnessing her only younger brother regress into autism (he was age:3), having moved through very dark depression late teens into early 20’s, survivor of multiple skin conditions, reversed ADHD, and recently while in nutrition school healed hypothyroid at the root cause.

She is a graduate of CSNN and a registered holistic nutritionist since 2019. Her love for holistic health and wellness includes these forms of education and certifications: yoga teacher level I (2005), reflexologist (2008), bodywork and massage (2012), rainbow kids yoga (2014), reiki level II (2017-2018).

She first began OurOM2hands in Courtenay BC with a friend, and it has since turned into a sole proprietorship whereby this blog is born. The focus of the blog is centred around the themes connected to OurOM2hands; holistic, sustainable, abundant intentions and actions. Enjoy!
