Its getting to be that chilly season again, where a cup of coffee is good anytime of the day, and the only thing I can think to make that better (besides adding Bailey’s to that coffee!) is to serve it with homemade biscotti! And boy-oh-boy have I found a delicious recipe for you!
I love switching recipes up, and this one would be so easy mix-and-match ingredients to make your very own yummy biscotti combinations. (My favorite so far is a lemon & white chocolate biscotti.. YUM!)
I found this recipe off Pinterest (oh how I love you), and it is just too good not to share. Its from a website called SkinnyTaste and, though you won’t believe it when you taste the final product, they are low fat! *She does have a full-fat version for those of you who don’t think things can taste good without butter..
Double Chocolate Chip Biscotti
- 1-2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 cup superfine sugar (you can put sugar in food processor)
- 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 2 large eggs
- 1 large egg white
Preheat oven to 375°. Line two baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Add chocolate chips and mix. Gradually add eggs and egg whites to the mixture and combine to make a dough. (If dough is too dry add one more egg white)
Divide the dough into two, place on the lined baking sheets and spread in two thin rectangles about 4 inches wide, 1/2 inch tall. Bake 20 minutes.
When cool enough to handle (after about 10 minutes), gently cut the loaves on the angle into 1/2 inch slices (a serrated bread knife works good for this).
Return to the baking sheets fitting as many as you can on their side. You may need to do this in batches. Bake the biscotti for another 3-4 minutes on each side. (less time for if you like it softer)
Makes around 24
I made two batches of these, one as described and another minus the cocoa powder. I did have to add an extra egg white to the one with the cocoa powder to get it to stick, but they both turned out amazing! I can’t wait to try more variations of this in the next couple weeks, & I encourage you to do the same! Enjoy!
