Description

Ricotta makes everything taste better!

Ingredients

  • 2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 2-½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ¾ cups Grapeseed Oil Or Vegetable Oil
  • ½ Tablespoons Lemon Zest
  • ¾ cups Lowfat Ricotta
  • 3 Tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Prepare a 12-count muffin tin by spraying it with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in oil. Remove 1/2 cup of this mixture and stir the lemon zest into it. Set it aside for streusel.
3. Make a well in the middle of the remaining flour mixture in the large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk ricotta, citrus juices, egg and vanilla extract together. Fold ricotta mixture into the big bowl of flour mix until just blended.
4. Divide batter between muffin tins. Crumble zesty streusel evenly among muffins. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of one comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and let muffins cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
