Whole Wheat Lemon Almond Biscotti

Mmm biscotti… So good… So perfect with a cup of tea… I have a few biscotti recipes that I really enjoy, and this is another one to add to that list! 🙂 These are also pretty healthy, containing no butter, no egg yolks, and no white sugar/flour.

Whole Wheat Lemon Almond Biscotti

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 50 ml ground almonds
  • 50 ml organic cane sugar
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup almonds, skin on, roughly chopped
  • 4 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Method:

  • Pre heat oven to 300 F (or 285 F – 290 F if using a convection oven), and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all dry ingredients together.
  • Add all wet to dry.
  • Mix together just until a dough forms.
  • Pat into an oval/log shape, about 3/4 of an inch thick.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes (check at 30 minutes that it’s not burnt, as all ovens are different).
  • Remove from oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Cut the log diagonally into sticks, about 3/4 of an inch wide.
  • Flip the sticks over onto their sides (cut sides are facing down and up now), and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Flip the sticks again, and bake for another 10 minutes until the biscotti are dried out.
  • Allow to cool, and enjoy! 🙂
