There are few baked recipes that can be made with such quickness and only a few ingredients. This recipe is one of them. “Grandma get on up cause this is a treat your grand-kids are sure gonna love”. Busy moms, dads and workout buffs you’re gonna love it too!
So check it out – you really only need 4 ingredients. Yes, only four tings man – plus two optional ingredients if you want to add them in.
In the mixing bowl:
1.5 cups of raw or sprouted almond butter (make your own or try this one or this one)
2 pastured eggs (get on out and support your local farmers!)
1/2 cup of raw cacao nibs, semi-sweet dark chocolate chips or carob chips (carob is a great chocolate substitute for those following an AIP diet or for those sensitive to chocolate)
3 Tbsp organic vanilla extract (alcohol-free for those following GAPS or AIP diets)
2 Tbsp organic raw honey (if you like things to taste sweet)
1/4 tsp aluminum free baking soda (this will help the batter rise a bit more)
1 Tbsp virgin coconut oil or cultured ghee (this will enhance flavor and add moisture if you don’t want your biscotti to be hard/dry)
Whip eggs first, then add in remaining ingredients and mix by hand until smooth or use a mixer for about 1 minute on the lowest setting.
Line a baking pan ( I use glass) with all natural parchment paper. Scoop in batter and bake in a convection oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes in a regular oven using the middle rack.
Once time is up, let cool for 5 minutes in the oven then remove from oven and let cool completely on the kitchen counter. Once completely cooled cut into desired sizes and enjoy with coffee or tea.
These can be stored in an airtight container inside the oven for about 2 days. They can also be frozen to enjoy at a later time. Simply wrap in wax paper and place in Ziploc bags and freeze for up to 3 months.
Pack these in your gym bag, purse, diaper bag or briefcase for a healthy midday snack. Hope you enjoy it.
Lots of love,
