Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Biscotti

In addition to the traditional Christmas treats there are a few other special recipes I only break out during the holiday season.  This is mostly because they are not the most healthy of recipes and if I had them available throughout the year my pants would no longer fit.  One of these annual treats is Biscotti.  But after I finished the last piece of my holiday Biscotti, I decided I to start the hunt for a heathy version of this dippable treat.  During my hunt I found a few recipes that looked good and combined them to make the Vaughan version.  I hope you enjoy!


Ingredients
- 1 Cup Almond Meal
- 1 1/2 Cups Gluten Free Flour Mix
- 1/2 Tsp. Xanthan Gum
- 1 Tsp. Baking Powder
- 2 Tlb. Coconut Oil
- 2 Tlb. Agave
- 1/2 Tsp. Almond Extract
- 1/2 Tsp. Almond Extract
- 2 Large Organic Eggs
- 1/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
- 1/4 Cups Semi-Sweet Organic Chocolate Chips

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 300F and prepare a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.

2. In a medium size bowl, mix together all wet ingredients with a hand mixer.  Once wet ingredients are mixed well add dry ingredients and combine (Note: when all ingredients are combined the batter should mirror the consistency of cookie dough). Then, break dough into 2 equal parts and create two logs and 12 inches long X 3 inches wide.



3. Bake logs at 300F for 25 minutes then let cool for 10 minutes. Then cut each log into individual pieces of Biscotti (Note - I cut about 12 Biscotti pieces out of each log).

The last step is to bake the Biscotti again at 300F for 12 minutes on each side.

Then pour yourself a hot cup of coffee and enjoy!

  3. Have you altered these in any way. Texture wise, these were great and easy to make, but they came out with absolutely no sweetness (aside for the chocolate chips). The almond flavor was good and the chocolate chips, but the main parts need something more and I'm not sure what to add too it. I'm not sure if adding more agave will add enough sweetness, or if adding sugar will do the trick. Thanks for any response.
