Healthier Chocolate Peanut Butter Cannolis

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.

I actually got this recipe from cooking light.  If you want to see their version click here.

  1. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  2. 2 tbsp flour
  3. 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  4. 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  5. 1/8 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons egg whites
  7. 1/2 teaspoon almond milk
  8. 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  9. 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.

Enjoy! 🙂
