The only way you could improve this biscotti is to drizzle it with chocolate glaze. a rich, not too sweet and crisp cookie goes wonderful with coffee.

And notice no butter, oil or shortening? Does that make them a health food?

How to Make Twice the Chocolate Almond Biscotti

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

    Whisk the flours, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl.

    Place the eggs, sugars and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until well incorporated. Add the dry ingredients and continue to mix until a stiff dough forms. Add the dark chocolate and almonds and mix until they are incorporated into the dough.
  2. Divide the dough in half and place the balls of dough on a cutting board dusted lightly with flour or cocoa powder. Roll each ball out into a log roughly 9 inches long by 2 inches wide. Place them on a baking sheet lined with a nonstick silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Press down on the top of the logs to flatten them slightly.
  3. Bake 26-30 minutes until firm to touch. As they bake, the logs will spread out slightly.
  4. Remove from the oven and cool them on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then transfer the logs to a cutting board and using a serrated knife, cut them on a diagonal into ½-inch slices. Arrange the slices upright on the baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake an additional 15-20 minutes (bake longer for extra crispy biscotti).

    Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack before serving. For an extra chocolaty treat, dip the ends of the biscotti into melted chocolate and let harden before serving.
