Chocolate and Almond Biscotti (Vegan / Dairy-Free / Egg-Free)

It took me a while to pluck up the courage to trying baking biscotti. I always thought it would be a challenge to achieve the perfect, crunchy texture. However, as soon as I spotted the biscotti recipes in Isa and Terry’s Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, I knew it would all work out fine. This amazing little recipe book has never let me down yet.

Baking biscotti is way easier than I ever imagined… even with the double bake aspect to it.  I love experimenting with different flavour and ingredient combinations for the biscotti.  The chocolate and almond version has especially been a hit with everyone that’s tried it 🙂

Almonds and Choc Chips

The recipe is based on Isa and Terry’s ‘Kitchen Sink Chocolate Biscotti’ recipe. The ingredient quantities are only given in cups, so I weighed them today for anyone that doesn’t use measuring cups (and that includes most of my friends and family!) Cups are readily available in the UK now so, if you do fancy trying more US/Canadian/Australian recipes, I highly recommend buying a set. You’ll find them in the larger supermarkets (like Asda-Wal-Mart and Tesco), kitchen shops, as well as Amazon.

Chocolate and Almond Biscotti (Vegan / Dairy-free / Egg-free) | Bit of the Good Stuff

I’ve made lots of batches of biscotti this month. I don’t know why, but I always think of December as ‘biscotti month’!  I’ve really enjoyed sharing them with friends, family, my study group… and a homeless guy in Bath. His dog loved it too! (Don’t worry, it wasn’t the chocolate version 😉 )

I also made a batch today to give to Lil’ L’s teacher as a ‘thank you’ gift.
