1 1/8 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup maple sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 cup chopped almonds
2 room temperature eggs, beaten
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, orange zest, and almonds. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, oil, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well with a wooden spoon or clean hands. Dump the mixed dough onto a baking sheet and form into a rectangle, 3/4 of an inch thick. Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Cut into 1/2 inch pieces and rearrange, on their sides, on the baking sheet. Put back in oven and cook for another 15-20 minutes, turning cookies over about halfway through. When they’re done, they should be crunchy, crispy (like biscotti!). Make sure you take them out before they feel completely hard though, because they will continue cooking/hardening for a little while after you remove them from the oven.
These photos are gorgeous, Jackie! And I love biscotti–it's one of my faves. I'll definitely be trying this out.
p.s. Your e-mail went to my spam (sad!) but I found it last night. Will reply shortly 🙂
Is it bad that I've never tried biscotti before? Is it crunchy? I want to try it after seeing these photos! Hehe.
Yum! I love biscotti, but have yet to try to make it myself
oh i love this recipe. Thank you!

Thank you so much Alyssa! I'm trying to work on my photography (I have a loooong way to go, lots to learn!) so that is a great compliment!
Hah, no, it's not bad! But if you are going to try, don't try those ones that are in plastic wrap at the deli or grocery store-so not yummy. Homemade ones are on a whole different level!
I was little hesitant to try (for some reason I thought it would go wrong somewhere along the way), but they turned out to be surprisingly easy to make!
These look good… how long do they keep? Did you store them in the fridge?
I don't think they need to be refrigerated. I stored them in a Tupperware container on the counter. As for how long they would last, I imagine a week or two-sadly I can't really say, because I ate them all up before they could even think about going bad! Embarrassing but true 🙂
Oh yum!!! These look so good! I've never made biscotti before but you are definitely persuaiding me to try! 😉
This looks SO good! I can't get over how much I'm loving all these food posts a lot of bloggers have been doing lately! I don't think I can put off channeling my inner baker too much longer! I can't believe I haven't found your blog sooner! I just followed and I love it!
