Ricotta Cheese Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe
Moist chocolate chip muffins loaded with chocolate morsels in every bite. What a perfect way to start you morning if chocolate is your weakness. Also great as an afternoon snack.
These originally started with whole wheat flour, but after a few attempts at these I got the best results using self-rising cake flour. The taste and texture was exactly what I expect from a muffin. Next time I may try to do a blend of white whole wheat flour and cake flour to see how they come out. Until then I didn’t want to keep you waiting!
If you are watching your sugar intake, I’m sure these would work great with a Splenda blend.
2 cups self rising cake flour (Presto)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light
3/4 cup sugar
3 large egg whites
8 oz fat free ricotta cheese
1/2 tbsp vanilla
9 tbsp mini semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels
Preheat oven to 375°.
Mix flour and baking soda. Mix and cream butter and sugar. Beat egg whites and add to butter/sugar mixture. Mix in ricotta cheese, then flour mixture and vanilla. Fold in chocolate chips and spoon into lined muffin tins about 3/4 filled.
Bake at 375° for 15-16 minutes and let cool.
Makes 12 muffins.
