Ingredients
  • 1.5-2 Cups - All purpose flour
  • ½ Cup - Almond Meal (We used Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 Tsp - Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tsp - Baking Soda
  • ⅛ Tsp - Salt (Optional)
  • 2 Eggs, ½ Cup - Canola Oil
  • ⅔ Cup - Honey
  • ⅓ Cup - Sugar
  • 1 Tsp - Bourbon Vanilla
  • 1 Tsp - Almond Extract
  • ⅔ Cup - Pascha Bitter Sweet Chocolate Chips + more for melting/dipping
  • 1 egg + 1 Tsp water for egg wash.
  • Sea Salt (optional) for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Sift together 1.5 cups flour, almond meal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt if using. (Reserve the other ½ cup of flour in case biscotti batter is not thick enough. We needed another ¼ cup and could have added more.)
  2. In a stand mixer (or using a hand-held mixer), beat together canola oil, honey, sugar, vanilla, and almond extract until fully combined.
  3. Slowly beat in dry ingredients until incorporated. Add additional flour if necessary.
  4. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Cover, and refrigerate until chilled - minimum 2 hours.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F.
  7. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. With wet hands, split batter in half forming two logs on the baking sheet 2-3" thick by 12-14" long. (Leave a few inches between the logs to avoid them touching while baking.)
  9. Completely coat batter with egg wash.
  10. Bake for 30 minutes until lightly golden.
  11. Remove from oven, reduce heat to 325F
  12. Carefully cut ¾" strips for the biscotti, and flip cut side up.
  13. Return to oven and bake 10 minutes. Remove, flip biscotti and baking sheet. Return to oven and continue baking another 10 minutes until golden brown.
  14. Biscotti will crisp up once cooled - however we baked ours a little longer to ensure crunchiness.
  15. Once cooled to room temp, melt chocolate (either using the microwave or a double boiler), and dip one end of the biscotti, then place on parchment paper.
  16. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
  17. Serve once chocolate has set.
