let us talk about the healthy ingredients in this muffin recipe…
Lemons have been known to keep the heart healthy for hundreds of years. Vitamin C is essential in helping your body absorb iron and maintain a proper blood clotting process, which is why it’s so important to get enough of this vital vitamin from food sources. You can get enough vitamin C from these easy-to-make lemon ricotta muffins.
Beyond keeping your heart healthy, lemons are great for digestive health, a significant health benefit for adherents of a gluten-free diet. Lemons contain soluble fiber and simple sugar, with the primary one being pectin.
Soluble fiber aids and improves gut health while slowing down the digestion of sugar and starches. This attribute makes lemon juice a food ingredient that helps to reduce blood sugar levels.
In this easy gluten-free muffin recipe, you’ll find fresh lemon juice and lemon zest, providing you with all the nutritional and healthy benefits of fresh lemon.
Ricotta, the other star ingredient in this easy gluten-free muffin recipe, provides numerous nutritional benefits for the body. It is an excellent protein source made up of all the essential amino acids in equal amounts. Protein is a vital nutrient that keeps our hair, skin, nails, and bones healthy.
This cheese is not only filled with vital protein that your body needs, but it is also a rich source of selenium. Selenium is an essential mineral that acts as an antioxidant, keeping the body protected from damage.
Calcium is also present in ricotta cheese in large amounts. Calcium helps us maintain healthy bones and keeps our muscles functioning. I could go on and on about the nutritional benefits of ricotta, but you can deduce that this is a healthy ingredient that makes this easy lemon ricotta muffins a must-try.
lemon and ricotta cheese together…
Lemon and ricotta seem like a surprising combination for making muffins, but that’s what makes these healthy treats so fabulous.
