The idea for using sweet pea puree into muffins came to me yesterday when I was pureeing organic green peas for baby food. My five month old Ivy has been eating mushed banana in addition to her milk for the past month, while her twin Blair isn't quite ready for food yet. When Ivy decides she is hungry for something more than milk, I usually dash to the kitchen, grab a chunk of ripe banana and start mashing away to feed her before she turns into what I call "the Kraken".

Ahh, the raw cookie dough. I only recently jumped on the garbanzo bean cookie dough band wagon, and all I can say is what took me so long?? The creamy, filling and protein-packed cookie dough treat has become my new quick "dessert" breakfast. When you're constantly on your feet washing bottles, walking the babies to sleep, frantically cleaning or making food for the family, easy and filling meals and snacks are a must.
This yields 2-4 servings depending on how hungry you are, but remember that if you eat it all in one go, that is a LOT of beans ;)
