These chocolaty, moist and buttery muffins are so delicious, it is a great way to use up some of the leftover ricotta cheese that adds the creaminess and moisture into the muffins.

Pour in the milk, vanilla extract, and cooled and melted butter, mixing well. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.

Stir in the ricotta mixture into the flour mixture until moist and incorporated .

Then gently fold in the chocolate chips. Do not over mix. Spoon the batter evenly among the 16 muffin cups.

Put in the oven and bake 18 to 22 minutes or until lightly browned and a wooden stick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 15 minutes. Transfer muffins onto wire rack.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Had some ricotta cheese, besides savory dishes I wanted to make something sweet as well, then these double chocolate ricotta muffins came out deliciously chocolaty and moist as I wished.

Tons of chocolate flavor and super moist, absolutely delicious. In order to make these muffins healthier I did a few changes (see the linked recipe below) without interrupting flavor and texture.

These muffins are great for breakfast and snack, pack one or two in your kid's lunch box, and they will absolutely love it.
