Every Christmas I make a lasagne. Every Christmas I have leftover ricotta and look for recipes to use it up. These muffins are low carb and low sugar. They should be stored in the refrigerator in a covered container. They can be frozen. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator. They can be warmed up a few seconds in the microwave.

I like this recipe because it only used one bowl. There are several other variations that I'm going to try.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 12

I wonder if there's a way to make this a savory muffin, such as a breakfast muffin?

You can google ricotta muffins. The chocolate one is a sweet muffin.


Last time I made a ricotta muffin I used pumpkin. I look for recipes that use ingredients I already have.

I bet you could, maybe look for a quick bread recipe to adapt. You could add sausage or bacon, or any sorts of vegetables you might add in an omlette

In my area, the smallest size they offer is larger than what I need. The reason I posted the recipe is so there would be a way to use it up in a tasty way.
