Dish: Chocolate Ricotta Muffins
Ricotta cheese makes these muffins extra moist and gives them almost-cheesecake like texture. I used part-skim ricotta but the original recipe suggests using whole milk ricotta. I replaced all of the all-purpose flour with wholewheat pastry flour and even with that the muffins turned out soft, fluffy and moist. I subbed the eggs with some egg replacer powder (flaxseed meal will be a great alternate too).
These muffins have double dose of chocolate with cocoa powder and the chocolate chips. I have to say these are probably one of my favorite chocolate muffins too along with the kids because they are very moist, chocolaty and quite addictive.
