Surprise your sweetie with these lower-fat, chocolaty muffins. Dark chocolate is healthy in moderation and contains heart healthy antioxidants.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup all purpose flour
½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp unsweetened baking cocoa
¾ cup sugar
4 oz semisweet baking dark chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
4 tbsp melted butter
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups 1% milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 Preheat oven to 350. Spray 2 muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the flours, salt, baking powder, sugar, cocoa and dark chocolate.
2 In another large bowl, beat the ricotta with melted butter. Add eggs and beat well. Whisk in the milk and vanilla. By hand, fold in the dry ingredients and gently mix until combined.
3 Fill muffin tins 2/3 full with batter and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
