Legumes are popular, and for good reason. Did you know that 2016 has been declared the International Year of Legumes? Despite this, they don't always have the place they deserve in children's diets. Legumes are nutritious, easy to find, have a long shelf life and are one of the best ways to get the best bang for your buck when it comes to food. One more thing you might not know about legumes: they can be added to your desserts! These chocolate cupcakes are so soft that you'll want to have 2 ... or 3 ... or 10! They'll keep for several days in an airtight container, and can also easily be frozen to save for later.
