Ingredients: For the shells:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the filling:

  • 8 ounces full-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup powdered keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips, optional (for garnish)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, keto-friendly sweetener, and cinnamon for the shell. Stir until well combined.
  2. Add the melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Roll each portion into a thin, round sheet (about 1/8 inch thick).
  4. Wrap the dough sheets around cannoli molds or metal tubes, sealing the edges with a bit of water to ensure they stick together. Repeat for each cannoli.
  5. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a large pot or deep fryer over medium heat. Carefully fry the cannoli shells, one or two at a time, until golden brown and crispy. Remove them from the oil using tongs and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Let them cool completely.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, powdered keto-friendly sweetener, and vanilla extract for the filling. Mix well until smooth and creamy.
  7. Once the cannoli shells have cooled, gently remove them from the molds. Fill a piping bag fitted with a large round tip with the ricotta filling.
  8. Pipe the filling into each end of the cannoli shell, working from both ends until the shell is evenly filled.
  9. Optional: Garnish the ends of the cannoli with sugar-free chocolate chips for an extra touch of decadence.
  10. Repeat the process for the remaining cannoli shells.
  11. Serve the Keto Cannoli immediately or refrigerate for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to meld.
