In a bowl, add the ground oats, cornstarch, and salt. Mix and set aside.
In a saucepan, add the water, butter and your sweetener. Heat over medium heat and when it starts to boil, remove and stir in the dry ingredients. Mix and after couple of seconds when the dough starts to form, cook constantly stirring over low heat for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and let it cool for 5 minutes. Add one egg and using a wooden spoon or mixer work the egg into the dough. Beat the second egg into the small bowl and add slowly to the dough, add just enough to make your dough the right consistency.
Transfer the dough into a pastry bag or any other freezer bag, and pipe onto a lined baking tray.
Bake at 400F (200C) for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature to 325F (160C) and bake for another 20-25 minutes.
When baked poke a tiny hole on the side of each puff and place back to the turned-off oven. Let it cool completely.
For filling, add the cold cream into the bowl and whip until stif, add the riccota, honey and vanilla and mix until combined.
Using a pastry bag fill your pastry shells.
Dust with the coconut powdered sugar or drizzle with melted dark chocolate.
