Chocolate Ricotta Sunflower Muffins.
2 Attachment(s)
I wanted to try out a new large muffin pan I bought so I tried these.
The dimension of each muffin is 4 1/2 inch X 2 inch.
They are more the size of little cakes.
They worrked out well though and are also quite tasty.

Chocolate Ricotta Sunflower Muffins.

1 cup ricotta cheese
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cup lc milk or heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons butter melted and cooled
2 1/3 cup lc cake and cookie flour mix
1 splenda quick pack
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl whisk ricotta cheese and eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Add milk, vanilla, and cooled butter mixing well and then set aside.

In an electric mixing bowl whisk together flour, splenda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. Add ricotta mixture and mix until combined. Stir in sunflower seeds.

Divide batter into 12 or 6 lined or sprayed muffin tins.

Bake 20 to 25 min for 12 muffins or 30 to 35 min for 6 muffins or until set and toothpick comes out clean in center of muffins.
