Number of Servings: 12


    1 cup ricotta cheese

    2 large eggs

    1 1/3 cup (320 ml) milk

    1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

    4 tablespoons (57 grams) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

    2 1/3 cups (325 grams) Whole Wheat Flour

    1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar

    2 teaspoons baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/3 cup (35 grams) Dutch processed cocoa powder, sifted

    3/4 cup (170 grams) semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Place rack in the middle of the oven. Line 12 muffin pans with paper liners or spray with a non stick vegetable spray.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk the ricotta cheese and then add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the milk, vanilla extract, and cooled and melted butter, mixing well. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Add the ricotta mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until combined and then fold in the chocolate chips. Do not over mix this batter or the muffins will be tough when baked.

Divide the batter amongst the 12 muffin cups using two spoons or an ice cream scoop.

Place in the oven and bake about 20 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

Makes 12 regular-sized muffins.

Number of Servings: 12
