Blueberry and Ricotta Muffins

These have the taste of muffins, but the texture is much lighter and a bit more spongy. They are sugar free, fat free, gluten free and certainly guilt free. Enjoy!

Makes ca 12 muffins
3 syn on Extra Easy for the whole recipe*

* Providing you use the ricotta as your Healthy Extra A, and oats as Healthy Extra B

35g rolled oats
85g fat free natural yogurt
1 tbsp sweetener
2 eggs
85g ricotta
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
100g blueberries

Start the day before you want to eat the muffins. Soak the oats in the yogurt, sweetener and ca 2 tbsp water (depending on the consistency of the yogurt) overnight.

Separate the eggs and whisk the whites until soft peaks form. In a separate bowl, mix together the yolks, ricotta, baking powder, oats and cinnamon. Adjust seasoning and if necessary add more sweetener. Stir in the blueberries. Carefully fold in the egg whites, one third at a time.

Place spoonfuls of the mixture in muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes at 190°C, until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the muffins, and the top is nicely brown.
