Low Carb, Almost Sugarless: Low Carb Lemon Ricotta Muffin

ricottamuffin1

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup soy flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar substitute
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese, drained
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • 6 tbs butter, melted
  • 2 tbs lemon zest
  • 1 tbs lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease 12 regular sized muffin pans or line with muffin liner. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix soy flour, almond flour, baking powder, sugar substitute and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk, lemon zest, lemon juice, cheese and  melted butter.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix until just about moistened. Do not overmix or muffin will be dense.
  5. Pour batter into prepared muffin pans. Bake for 20 -25 minutes or until light brown and springy to the touch. Insert toothpick at center of muffin to test for doneness (toothpick must come out clean).
  6. When done, remove from pan and cool on wire rack.

I made mini-muffins and the recipe yielded at least 24 minis.

I’m definitely feeling like I need a few low-carb days right now, and these look fantastic!

I love my soy flour! I don’t get to use it enough. I can’t wait to try it out in these muffins. I’ve used it before in a muffin recipe, but I found that i made my muffins very dense. Were these muffins light and fluffy? They certainly look super delicious and delicate!

elyse: yes, they are light and fluffy. and i believe it is because of the ricotta cheese.

Where’s the cheese??? I’m not seeing the Ricotta cheese in the list of ingredients. Would love to try these… please tell me how much cheese :-)

LOL! Not sure what happened but it is back on the list now. Sorry about that. Use 1 cup of ricotta cheese.

Where’s the milk??? I’m not seeing the soy milk in the direction. goes into another bowl?????

I swear this recipe has an ingredient ghost! LOL. First, Bonnie noticed the cheese was missing. Now the milk. The milk goes with the wet ingredients and the directions has now been corrected.
