Cannoli’s are one of those treats you can make into a million different flavors. So much so that there are even stores that make multiple varieties. I decided that I wanted to go out of the box a little bit with this recipe and make a flavor not many people have tried before. Of course while keeping the same basic necessities of cannolis. (A crunchy shell and sweet/ slightly tangy filling).
Somehow I was able to do this while keeping it healthy :).
There are two recipes in this recipe. The shell, and the filling.
Let’s start with the shell.
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon almond milk
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring well. Stir in egg whites, milk, and vanilla.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Spread 1 tbsp of batter into a circle about 4 inches thick. Repeat until you have 4 circles formed
Bake at 400° for 6 minutes or until edges begin to brown.
Quickly take each shell and form into the shape of a cannoli. Allow to cook for about ten minutes
While it’s cooling, prepare the filling
You are going to need
1. 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
2. 1/4 cup PB2
3. 2 tsp honey
Mix the ingredients together
transfer into a piping bag
and pipe the mixture into each cannoli shell
Either enjoy as it, or place them in the freezer for a few hours so it’s more like ice cream.
