Blueberry Ricotta Gourmet Muffins

July 19, 2010 in Baked Goods, Muffins Your Way Recipes by Joyce Bunderson

These muffins really look and taste (Oh my goodness, they are so good.) like gourmet muffins served at a 5-star bed and breakfast; but you can make them quickly and easily. Dads and kids can make them for mom or mom and kids can make them for grandma. Let mom or grandma think you worked real hard. In addition to the flavor and eye appeal, these muffins are made with only whole grains, extra virgin olive oil and no added sugar, so mom or grandma can feel pampered and healthy at the same time.

Ingredients:

Filling ingredients:

1 cup part skim milk ricotta
2 tablespoons Dr. Grandma’s Delight or 2 tablespoons sugar
1 extra large egg

Batter ingredients:

1 packet of Dr. Grandma’s Muffins Your Way
Included packet of extra virgin olive oil
2 extra large eggs (or ½ cup egg substitute)
½ cup water
1 ½ cup to 2 cups blueberries

Topping optional: Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a standard 12 – muffin tin heavily with vegetable spray or use paper liners. Mix the ricotta, Delight and egg (1); then set aside.

Mix the eggs (2), water and oil; add the Dr. Grandma’s Mix packet and mix batter just until the dry and wet ingredients are combined (do not over mix). Fold in the blueberries into the batter.

Put ½ of the batter into each of the 12 muffin tins. Spoon the ricotta filling into each muffin tin. Top each muffin with the other half of the muffin batter. And then sprinkle with a little cinnamon and sugar or Delight, if desired.

Bake for 18 to 22 minutes. Test with a toothpick – toothpick comes out clean from the center of the muffin.

From a mix, easy and healthy - yet delightful.
