Chocolate Biscotti

The first time I baked my almond flour biscotti, I fell in love with the twice baked crunchy cookies. It was a labor of love, but was truly the perfect cookie for my daily iced coffee.

These gluten-free chocolate biscotti are, dare I say, even better than the originals. They have a rich chocolate flavor, enhanced by chocolate chips mixed into the batter and a light chocolate drizzle.

The crushed pistachios are the perfect added crunch that pair so well with all the chocolate flavor.

Gluten-free Chocolate Biscotti

To make biscotti, you’ll start by preparing the dough. Form that into a log shape and bake it for around 20 minutes. Before slicing the cookies into bars, you’ll need to let the log cool.

Once its cool, slice your biscotti and bake each side on a lower temp for another 10-12 minutes. Let them cool one more time to really crisp up, then top them with your toppings.

These delicious chocolate 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.
