These almond flour biscotti are the perfect gluten and dairy-free cookie to pair with a warm cup of coffee or tea. They’re topped with a delicious 2-ingredient vanilla chai glaze, and are so easy to whip up!
Biscotti, also known as cantucci, are twice-baked, long crunchy almond cookies that can be filled with different nuts and dried fruit, or even dipped in chocolate.
My dad always bought a huge tub of them from Costco growing up, and I’ve loved them ever since!
How to make almond flour biscotti
These almond flour biscotti are made with just 7 simple ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need-
- Almond flour- I like using a fine almond flour, like this one
- Coconut sugar- using coconut sugar, like I did in this recipe, will result in a darker cookie. You can also swap light brown sugar if that’s all you have
- Coconut oil- I like to use a refined coconut oil in these, for a neutral taste
- Almond extract- this is what gives it that true biscotti flavor, so I don’t suggest substituting it
- Baking powder
Once you have your dough mixed together, you can add in any additional flavors you enjoy. For this recipe, I added chopped pistachios, and threw together a 2 ingredient vanilla chai glaze using powdered sugar and a vanilla flavored chai tea bag.
Other flavor combinations for your biscotti
There are so many add-ins you can choose from for these cookies. Here are a few of my favorites:
- chocolate chip: swap out the pistachios for chocolate chips, and dip the bottoms of the finished cookies in melted dark chocolate
- chocolate orange: add in one tbsp of orange zest to the batter, and mix in some chocolate chips
- almond cranberry: instead of pistachios, toss in some slivered almonds and dried cranberries. You can even keep the vanilla glaze for this flavor combo!
These delicious almond flour biscotti are twice-baked to give them that perfect crunch. You guys are going to love this recipe! I can’t wait to hear what you think.
