These gluten-free lemon ricotta muffins are ideal for someone who is looking for a super simple gluten-free muffin recipe. In this recipe, I used a biscuit and baking mix for a simple muffin that anyone can make. Adding ricotta cheese and fresh lemon juice is what makes these muffins super moist and delicious without adding extra fats

To add even more flavour to the ricotta muffin, I drizzled a lemon glaze over the top. This zesty glaze goes exceptionally well with these gluten-free ricotta muffins. I hope you enjoy these muffins for breakfast or as a satisfying snack when you crave something sweet and tasty.
