Chocolate ~ Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins ~ Gluten Free

Chocolate ~ Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins ~ Gluten Free:
These muffins are super easy to make and are bursting with Chocolate flavor.
They are very moist and stay fresh for several days. They also freeze well.

Chocolate ~ Chocolate Chip Ricotta Muffins ~ Gluten Free:

In a large bowl whisk together:
2-1/3 Cups Gluten Free Flour (***See Footnote***)
1 tsp. Xantham Gum
1 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa
2 tsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. Salt

Using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula add:
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips; mixing it in.

In a Medium bowl whisk together:
1 Cup Ricotta Cheese
2 Eggs, slightly beaten ~  giving it a good mix

Add and Whisk in:
1-1/3 Cups Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil

Combine all the liquid ingredients in with the dry ingredients using a rubber spatula.  You do not want to over beat the batter.

Spray Muffin tins with Cooking Spray.
Using an ice cream scoop evenly measure out the Muffins.
You will get 17-18 Muffins.

Bake in a Preheated 350* Oven
For 22-25 Minutes or until done.
I use a digital Thermometer inserted into the center. When it reaches an internal temperature of 205* your muffins are done.

Cool for just a couple of minutes then remove the Muffin and cool on a wire rack.

The Muffins can be served just as they are or after they are completely cooled Dust them with Powered Sugar.



You can use the recipe below for Homemade Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix
If your using a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix check to see if it has Xanthan Gum,
if it does then you do not need to add Xanathan Gum to the Recipe.

Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, bars, brownies cakes, quick & yeast breads, rolls, buns and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo.

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.

I've checked the internet and I have seen that many people use this mix so I don't know who was the original person who made the recipe.
