Chocolate Chocolate Chip Biscotti Recipe

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Biscotti is the perfect grown up cookie. Easy to recognize by their long crescent shape. When hard and crispy, it’s perfect for dipping into your coffee. A moister biscotti, which is how I like my biscotti, is perfect to eat by itself or with a glass of (fat free) milk.

Biscotti is baked twice, first it’s shaped into a log and baked, then it’s sliced on an angle and and baked a second time. Traditional biscotti contains no butter or oil and has a crispy, crunchy texture. This is the cookie you want to dip into your java. Adding just a little butter transforms this into the most addictive cookie you’ll probably ever make.

This is the butter free version. This was more of an experiment I wasn’t planning on posting. I cut them too soon, so the chocolate chips smeared a bit but I didn’t care because these weren’t going to make it to the blog. I had them on my counter and my daughter, the chocoholic in the house, came home from school and must have tasted one and raved about them. Asked me to pack them in her lunch for snack. My non-dieting skinny teen liked these!

A lot!!

Ate them all!! So they made the cut.

Calories: 100.9 • Fat: 2.9 g • Carb: 18.2 g • Fiber: 1.1 g   • Protein: 1.9 g

1-2/3 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup good quality unsweetened cocoa powder (got mine at Trader Joe’s)

1-1/2 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

3/4 cup superfine sugar (you can put sugar in food processor)

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

2 large eggs

1 large egg white

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°. Line two baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine  flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Add chocolate chips and mix. Gradually add eggs and egg whites to the mixture and combine to make a dough. (If dough is too dry add one more egg white)

Divide  the dough into two or three loafs. Place on the lined baking sheets and bake 20 minutes. (If the dough is too sticky to form with your hands, you can use a wooden spatula to transfer it onto the baking sheets)

When  cool enough to handle, gently cut the loaves on the angle into 1/2 inch  slices (a serrated bread knife works good for this).

Return to the  baking sheets fitting as many as you can. You may  need to do this in batches. Bake the biscotti for another 3-4 minutes on  each side. (less time for if you like it softer)

Makes around 24
