ricotta puffs

These mini, cheesy, chewy puffs are a great side to a salad or grilled vegetables. They’re a healthier alternative to something like corn bread.

The best part about this recipe is that all the ingredients are things you have laying around- nothing too fancy! I made a small batch to eat with my dinner- all the measurements are for 6 mini puffs.

ricotta puffs

Combine 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, 2 tsp whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 tbsp egg whites or egg substitute, and 1/4 tsp herbs du provence.

My herbs du provence straight from France! 

Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes. The tops will spring up when they’re done if you poke them.

I sprinkled a little bit of pepper on top for some extra flavor. You can add some garlic powder, extra salt or other spices- add to taste!
