Happy Tuesday friends! How has your week started out? Before jumping into today’s post, I wanted to wish a very happy birthday to my beautiful momma, hope you have a wonderful day!
Today I wanted to share a biscotti recipe. I love biscotti, it is just such a nice little treat with my morning coffee. These bad boys are lightly sweetened, full of chocolate chips and dried cranberries, and have a lovely mild coffee flavor from the coffee flour I used. They are also made with oat flour and have less sugar than a lot of other biscotti out there.
Healthier Chocolate Cranberry Biscotti
- 2.5 cups oat flour (you can also make your own by grinding up old-fashioned oats
- .25 cups coffee flour (no coffee flour? Sub in .25 cups regular flour)
- 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
- .5 teaspoons salt
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil (I used butter)
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup cranberries
Directions: Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Mix first six ingredients together until dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips and cranberries. Divide dough into three equal portions and form each one into a log shape. Place on baking pan and gently press down until about an inch in height. Make sure to leave a few inches between logs, as they will expand while baking.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until firm to the touch. Remove from oven and let sit for about 10 minutes. Then, using a serrated knife, slice each log into pieces. I found this easiest to do on a cutting board and just used a large spatula to transfer them back on to the baking pan. Make sure to use a serrated knife and cut slowly/gently, as they can be a little crumbly at this stage.
Once cut, return to baking sheet and bake for another 10 minutes. Allow to cool completely prior to eating. Hope you enjoy!
Do you like sweets in the am? I am usually more of a savory breakfast person, but I like a little something sweet with coffee sometimes.
Unrelated, are you ready for Christmas? I can’t believe it’s almost here! I have lots of little things to get wrapped up. Including lots of actual wrapping. But I am taking Maureen’s advice and wrapping a couple of things each night, so hopefully, it won’t be too much wrapping the night before.
Hope you have a great day!
