Something for the Sweet Tooth!
My tooth is more of a salty one. I could eat Doritos, chips, pretzels, popcorn, all day. And french fries. Especially french fries.
When I do get a sugar craving I have a few recipes in my arsenal to avoid going to the store and grabbing a candy bar. Besides my Healthy Pumpkin Cookies, there's also this awesome Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie recipe!
But last night I was dying for a cannoli! There are a ton of recipes going around for Greek Yogurt cookie dip but I find those too sour from the yogurt. I started making it with Ricotta instead, and last night I came up with this little gem! It was AMAZING. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Cannoli Dip with Cinnamon Chips
1 whole wheat pita cut into chips
Coconut oil spray
2 tsp dark chocolate chips
2 tsp honey
3/4 cup (1 red) ricotta cheese
1/2 tsp cocoa powder
Heat the oven to 375. Spray the pitas with coconut oil and then sprinkle cinnamon. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until crisp. Keep an eye on them, you don't want them to burn!
While they're cooking, mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl until fully combined.
When the chips are cool, eat with the dip! YUM!!
Tip- Add a little melted peanut butter in there for something extra!
