Blissfully Delicious Biscotti

It's really the “little things” that bring me pleasure!

I get excited when I feel the warmth of sunbeams peeking through my window or when I simply have a moment all to myself. I think a lot of busy moms can relate.

I get complete satisfaction, in the quiet of the morning (after my kids are at school)  sitting down to a cup of my favorite tea or coffee and dipping one of these Bliss Biscottis.

These, in my opinion, are better than any biscotti you can buy at Starbucks or other specialty coffee shops and the added bonus is:  You can enjoy treats like this and still enjoy living in a healthy body!!

These are so healthy that you can even have one for breakfast. These have exactly the right portion of protein and fats to keep you going all morning long.

Here's the recipe for my Follow Your Bliss Biscotti

 

BLISSFULLY DELICIOUS

BISCOTTI

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup coconut sugar                                             
  • 1 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups quinoa flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup flax meal
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 2/3 cup Cacao Bliss or unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut (optional)
  • 1 cup dried cherries (optional)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 cup walnuts, pecans, or almonds (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

2. Line a heavy large baking sheet with parchment paper.

3. In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar, coconut oil, and water to blend.

4. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extracts, and beat until well blended.

5. Whisk together quinoa, flour, almond meal, flax meal, chia seeds, Cacao Bliss, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

6. Beat in dry mixture until completely blended. Mix in coconut, cherries, chocolate chips, and nuts.

7. Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces.

8. Shape each piece on the baking sheet into 4 inches wide by 14-inch long log, on the parchment paper.

9. Bake until the logs are firm, about 20-22 minutes.

10. Cool the logs on the baking sheet until they are fairly cool to touch, about 20 minutes.

11. Transfer the baked logs to a cutting board (I line the parchment paper onto the cutting board and then slide it out from under and put it back on the cookie sheet).

12. Using a serrated knife, cut the warm logs crosswise into 3/4 inch thick slices.

13. Arrange the slices, cut side down, back on the baking sheet.

14. Bake the biscotti until firm, about 8-10 minutes.

15. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the freezer and enjoy!

 

For those of you who love paleo…you will think you've died and gone to paleo heaven!

This makes enough to fill up two huge bags! Place them in your freezer and eat them with your coffee or tea right out of the freezer — delicious!

 

Step into your bliss,

Danette
