Chocolate Chip Cranberry Orange Biscotti


Biscotti is my all time favorite cookie! They just go so well with coffee. I like to munch on biscotti when I play cards with friends. What’s your favorite card game? Mine is Euchre. I hope you still take time to play cards if you enjoy it! It seems harder to find the time anymore, but always leaves me feeling happy and connected. Here’s a great recipe for a cookie with holiday flavors, but you can enjoy it anytime of year.

Note: If you are eating strict SCD Low FodMap, substitute chopped pecans or walnuts for the chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour, scooped and leveled

2 Eggs

1/4 Cup of Olive Oil

1/4 Cup of Honey

1/3 Cup of Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips (here is the link for Amazon, but they are available at many grocery stores as well)

1/4 Cup of Apple Juice Sweetened Dried Cranberries (I use these)

Zest of one Organic Orange

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

Directions: Preheat your oven to 350°F.

In a medium mixing bowl, add the eggs, honey, vanilla, orange zest and olive oil. Beat with a hand held mixer for one minute. Sift together the coconut flour, baking soda and salt, then add it to the wet mixture. Beat for two minutes until the batter begins to thicken. Then, fold in the cranberries and chocolate chips, distributing evenly.

Scoop the cookie batter onto a parchment lined cookie sheet, and using the sides of the parchment. Shape it into a rectangle measuring approximately 12″ x 4″ x 1″ high. Alternatively, you can shape it with slightly damp hands. This keeps the dough from sticking to your hands.

Bake in your preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the edges are starting to brown.

Baked Biscotti Log

Remove from the oven and cool on the sheet for one hour. Reduce your oven’s heat to 325° degrees. Place the cooled cookie log onto a cutting board, and with a serrated knife, carefully slice the log on a diagonal, cutting the cookies into long rectangles about 1 inch thick each.

Biscotti Ready For Second BakePlace the cut side down back onto the parchment paper, and bake 5 minutes per side. After the first 5 minutes, take the cookies out of the oven and flip them over to the other cut side. Take care not to over brown, as all ovens are slightly different. Remove the biscotti from the oven and cool completely.
