Ingredients

Instructions

Toast the almonds

  • Toast the almonds on a baking sheet in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 6 minutes.

Sift the dry ingredients

  • Meanwhile, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl using a fine-mesh sieve. Then reserve 1/2 cup of the dry mixture and set it aside.

Mix the chopped nuts with reserved flour

  • Coarsely chop the toasted almonds and combine them with the reserved 1/2 cup of flour.

Make the biscotti dough

  • In a separate bowl, blend the eggs with a handheld mixer on high speed just until foamy. Then mix in the granulated sugar.
  • Add the unrefined coconut oil, almond extract, and vanilla extract and mix on medium speed just until combined.
  • Add the flour mixture to the eggs and mix using a spatula.
  • Now fold in the flour-coated almonds with the rest of the biscotti dough.

Divide and shape into logs

  • Transfer the dough to a flat surface and divide it into 5 equal pieces.
  • Now shape each piece of dough into a tall log shape. You want the sides to be raised high because they will spread quite a bit in the oven.

Bake, slice, and bake again

  • Transfer all 5 shaped logs onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in a 340-degree oven for 30 minutes.
  • Once the biscotti logs are baked, cut them into long strips that are about 2 inches thick. You want to cut a sharp angle.
  • Place the sliced biscotti back into the cookie sheet and bake at 330 degrees for 15-20minutes. (You don't need parchment paper for the second round of baking).

Dip the biscotti into melted chocolate

  • Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and transfer to a loaf pan. Since the biscotti are long you will need a long dish to dip them in.
  • Once the biscotti are fully cool down, dip them in the chocolate and place them on a sheet of wax paper to set. It will take a few hours for the chocolate to fully set.
