These past two weekends, I was starting to bake for the holidays. I’ve created already few delicious low-carb Christmas treats that I shared yesterday (Almond Flour Shortbread Cookies) and these Almond Flour Cranberry Muffins that I posted last week. If you didn’t try them yet, you definitely should because they are to die for.
Today I’m sharing a healthier version of one of my favourite cookies, which are the classic Italian biscotti. First time I tried a homemade almond biscotti was few years ago when we were having a cappuccino at my husband’s uncle coffee shop in Montreal.
I took a bite and I was amazed by the flavours! Wow it was so good! Since then I thought about making this recipe but in a low-carb and gluten-free version. So, I found this recipe on the blog Low-Carb Yum and I was very temped to try. However, I made some modifications, as I added more chocolate and didn’t use the lemon stevia drops or the sliced almonds.
These Chocolate Almond Biscotti Cookies are made with almond flour, coconut flour, natural sweetener, sugar-free dried cranberries and sugar-free chocolate chips too. And believe me, these low-carb biscotti cookies came out as good as the traditional biscotti, especially with the chocolate drizzle on top.
