Almond Biscotti

IMG_5762For this month’s Leftovers Club, I was paired with Lauren from Healthy Delicious. Last time we were paired together I decided it’d be fun to send her these Pancakes and Bacon Cookies, clearly not remembering that her site literally has the word “healthy” in the title. Oops. This time I calmed it down and threw some healthy protein-packed slivered almonds into biscotti and shipped them off. Not the healthiest thing ever, but clearly better than cookies chock full of maple syrup.

Recipe: Almond Biscotti

Makes 10-12 biscotti

What You Need:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup almonds, slivered
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract

What To Do:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar in a large bowl.

3. Add the eggs and almond extract until well combined.

4. Fold in the slivered almonds.

5. Pour dough onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Shape so it is in a long brick. Bake for 25 minutes.

6. Using a large knife, carefully cut the biscotti brick into slices. Be extremely cautious, as the slices will break easily if you rush this. (Trust me, I know)

7. Adjust the heat of the oven to 325 F and return the biscotti to the oven for an additional 20 minutes.

8. Let cool before eating.
