As mentioned previously,  a few years ago, I gave Weight Watchers a try.  It worked, but, sticking with a diet plan just doesn't work for me.  While that particular plan didn't work out, it did lead me to one of my favorite food blogs, SkinnyTaste.  

It was one of the first food blogs that I started reading on a regular basis.  It's filled with all types of delicious, healthy recipes and they all included Weight Watchers points. 
These muffins are one of my favorite recipe finds on the site.

I originally shared this recipe back when my blog first started in 2011, and they remain our household favorite when it comes to chocolate chip muffins. 

Soft, chocolaty, and the ricotta cheese gives them nice, creamy texture. Using the mini chocolate chips gives them just the right about of chocolate without being too chocolaty.  

Wait! That's possible? 😲 😃

Your new favorite chocolate chip muffin is here!

  1. I can almost taste how rich and moist these muffins are! I've got some ricotta left over from making manicotti the other night - I think this is the perfect recipe for it :-) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have never used ricotta in a baked good, but this post tells me it is fine time that I did. Your description as well as picture does inspire-thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you Laura and Tina! If you try them out, let me know how they go!

  4. Ooohh, I like this idea. Plus, I have some ricotta to use before it expires!
