To celebrate my website makeover, I’m sharing these Sweet Bean Fudgy Cookies!

One of the reasons I’m here – on this planet at this time – is to be in service to people. Whether it’s Coaching, the Men’s Group, chatting on the Podcast, it’s a privilege to be engaged with someone as they explore and dive into their life, insights, roadblocks and stories.

I know the phrase ‘holding space’ is a tad overused, but I love it and I believe in its transformative powers deeply. It’s a sacred honour to be present with another in a supportive, open-hearted, deep and sometimes playful way.

I also love cooking and creating recipes.

But not just for myself, family and friends.

Here, among my blog posts, I get to sprinkle recipes like edible confetti. To share a little part of me that otherwise would sit as scribbled notes in food-stained exercise books.

This particular recipe has sat in one of those exercise books for ages now. It has two ticks beside it which means I really like it a lot.

Flicking through the book the other day, I realised I hadn’t shared it. So I made it again to make sure it still deserves those ticks. It does.

It’s a simple all-in-the-blender recipe with one sneaky ingredient that you don’t normally see in cookies – black beans. If you’ve never tried beans in a sweet recipe before, have no fear. You can’t taste them!

The cookies taste particularly good straight out of the oven, so gooey and rich. But even cool they’re still a fudgy delight. Enjoy!
