peanut butter muffins

(from this cute cookbook)

what goes in it:
*1 c brown sugar (i used about 1/2-3/4 c honey instead)
*1/2 c peanut butter
*1/2 c carrot or cauliflower puree (i used cauliflower. i steam & puree a whole cauliflower & freeze it in 1/2 c batches to use in these muffins later. ;))
*1/2 c banana puree
*1 large egg white
*1 c whole wheat flour
*1 tsp baking powder
*1 tsp baking soda
*1/2 tsp salt

how to assemble:
>preheat oven to 350. coat muffin tin w cooking spray or use paper baking cups
>in a large mixing bowl, mix 1/2 c of the brown sugar w the peanut butter, the vegetable & banana purees, & the egg white, using a wooden spoon. (if using honey just add all the honey here.)
>put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt in a bowl & stir. add to the bowl w the peanut butter & stir just to combined (the batter will be a little lumpy--do not overmix). add the remaining 1/2 c brown sugar & stir once or twice.
>divide the batter among the muffing cups & bake until the muffins are lightly browned & a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center, 15-20 mins. turn the muffins out onto a rack to cool.
>eat em up!

Ohhhh! I'm excited to try these! I'm making brownies with black beans as the main ingredient today. Not nearly as healthy as this but I'm loving switching out ingredients to try up up our protein and veggies without meats.

Do you use a food processor to purée??
