Beach yoga is one of my favourite summer activities. Hearing the waves crash against the shore, looking up to see birds leisurely soaring by as you practice; nothing beats yoga by the sea.
And after a muscle wakening, spine limbering yoga class, sometimes a treat is called for. But not just any treat. A wholesome but sweet vegan treat.
This one has fresh Okanagan peaches, vanilla Coconut Bliss coconut milk nice cream and pure dark chocolate syrup, all resting on:
Black Bean Brownies
- 1 1/2 cups black beans
- 2 T cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/3 pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees, put all ingredients except chocolate chips on a blender and blend thoroughly. Mix in chocolate chips, line a cake pan with parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes.
Put previously mentioned ingredients on top and treat yourself to a little slice of bliss.
