I love the idea of making desserts healthier! I can't wait to make the pea lime cupcakes and the muffins. They look delicious. Thanks for the great recipes!

Great ideas, but please be sure to share all ingredient information if you bring these to a cookout, a class party, etc. I am alarmed at the growing use of chickpeas, black beans, etc. in desserts because they cause instant anaphylaxis for me. I usually ask what's in things anyway, but I might never think an allergen like a bean is in a dessert. And a child with a similar allergy probably wouldn't even consider that a brownie treat at a party might contain beans. Just my 2 cents! :)
