These healthy almond & walnut biscotti are both crunchy and nutty, and they're surprisingly low carb & sugar-free too!
- Ground almonds
- Walnut pieces
- Stevia or coconut sugar
- Baking powder (1 tsp)
- Sea salt (1/4 tsp)
- Egg (1 large room temp, whisked)
- Stevia drops (1/2 tsp)
Begin by pre-heating your oven to 170c. In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients before adding in the wet ingredients. Mix everything together until a dough forms.
Gently, take the dough out of the bowl and roll into a log shape which is roughly 25-30cm in size. Neaten up the ends with a knife so you have straight edges and then flatten halfway.
Place your log onto a baking tray and place in the middle of the oven to bake for 25 minutes. Once golden, remove from the oven to cool completely. This part is important.
Once your biscotti log has cooled completely, slice lengthways (see pictures for shape reference) with a sharp knife until you have roughly 12 biscuits. Place each biscuit back onto the baking tray and place back in the oven to bake for a further 10 minutes at the same temperature.
Remove from the oven and leave again to cool completely. The biscuits are delicate when warm, so please do not touch them - they need to cool in order to harden up.
Once your biscuits have cooled and are hard & crispy, serve or keep in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.
