Cannoli Cream Filling Ingredients

  • ½ cup cashews soaked for 24 hours then drained
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons full fat coconut milk skimmed off the top of a can
  • 1 ounce melted dark chocolate

Cannoli Shell Ingredients

  • cup cassava flour
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 flax egg 1 tablespoon ground flax seed soaked in 3 tablespoons water for 5 minutes
  • cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil


For the Cannoli Cream Filling

  • Using a food processor, puree soaked and drained cashews just until it is a chunky, grainy texture similar to ricotta cheese.
  • Pulse in the coconut sugar, cinnamon and coconut milk just until combined. Do not over mix.
  • Set the filling in the fridge while making the shells.

For the Cannoli Shells

  • Preheat your waffle cone iron.
  • Whisk all the dry ingredients together and then incorporate the wet ingredients.
  • Spoon about ½ tbsp of the batter onto the waffle cone iron and keep closed for 2-3 minutes.*
  • When it is golden brown, peel the waffle off the iron and wrap it around something cylinder-shaped (handle of a wooden spoon, thin rolling pin, etc.).
  • Keep the waffle wrapped on the object until it is cooled and hardened so it can hold its shape as a shell when taken off.
  • Once it cools, dip each side of the shell into the melted chocolate and place them in the fridge or freezer until they set.


  • Fill each cannoli shell with the prepared cannoli cream**.
  • Enjoy right away or store in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to eat.


*All waffle makers can vary so you might need to play around with the time.
**We scooped our cannoli cream into a small ziplock bag and snipped a small corner of it off to make a “piping bag” so filling the cannolis is easier 🙂
