Chocolate Chip Muffins with Ricotta Cheese : Table for Seven

As mentioned previously,  a few years ago, I gave Weight Watchers a try.  It worked, but, sticking with a diet plan just doesn’t work for me.  While that particular plan didn’t work out, it did lead me to one of my favorite food blogs, SkinnyTaste. It was one of the first food blogs that I started reading on a regular basis.  It’s filled with all types of delicious, healthy recipes and they all included Weight Watchers points.

These muffins are one of my favorite recipe finds on the site. I originally shared this recipe back when my blog first started in 2011, and they remain our household favorite when it comes to chocolate chip muffins.

Soft, chocolaty, and the ricotta cheese gives them nice, creamy texture. Using the mini chocolate chips gives them just the right about of chocolate without being too chocolaty.

Wait! Is that possible? 🤔

Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + baking powder + salt + baking soda
  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Egg Whites
  • Vanilla
  • Ricotta Cheese
  • Mini Chocolate Chips

A few notes:

  • Don’t over mix your batter! This could give you dense muffins.
  • Be sure your butter is softened before mixing.
  • Freezing? These muffins freeze really well. Simply place them in a freezer safe bag or container ( with lid). When you are ready, reheat in the microwave. They will stay good for a few months.
