Biscotti always remind me of my grandma. I've been dipping them in tea for as long as I can remember. Whenever Christmas rolls around, this is one of the first recipes I make. Although there's no reason you can't eat them all year long.
Mine aren't the prettiest, but the taste and texture are spot on.
Change up the nuts or add other seeds or flavorings to this recipe and you can easily create unique seasonal flavors like orange spice, pumpkin pecan or lemon poppyseed.
1 1/2 cups King Arthur all purpose gluten free flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
2/3 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
Preheat your oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix your wet ingredients. Add your dry ingredients and mix until combined, but don't over mix. I used my hands.
Press the dough into a ball and place it on your baking sheet. Cut it in half and form each 1/2 into a long rectangle. It helps to wet your hands a little so you can maneuver the dough and make it look nice and smooth.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for at least 10 min. Then using a sharp knife, cut into diagonal 1/2 inch thick slices.
Flip so the inside faces up and place back in the oven for another 15 minutes. They should be mostly dry and golden brown.
Allow to cool for another 10 minutes before serving.
