(makes about 12 biscotti, 10 min prep, 35-40 min bake)
Ingredients: 2 1/3 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup coconut flour, 3 large eggs, 1/3 cup organic raw honey, 2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds, 2 tsp sea salt, 2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 cup chopped pistachios, 1/4 cup organic dried cranberries, 1 Tbsp gluten free vanilla extract. Optional: dark chocolate.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine 2 1/3 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup coconut flour, 2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds, 2 tsp sea salt, and 2 tsp baking soda in a medium mixing bowl. Stir until all the ingredients are well mixed.
- Add 3 large eggs, 1/3 cup organic raw honey, and 1 Tbsp gluten free vanilla extract to the bowl and stir to combine.
- Add 1/4 cup chopped pistachios and 1/4 cup organic dried cranberries and stir to combine.
- Once the dough is well-mixed, pour it on top a silicone baking sheet over a sturdy oven safe pan. Form the dough into a wide log shape and place in the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
- Once the dough has become golden-brown on top, remove it from the oven. Cut the dough into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch wide strips (I found a serrated knife worked best).
- Separate the sections on the silicone baking mat to ensure they dry out properly then place back in the oven for about 10 minutes.
- Once the biscotti have finished baking allow them to cool before serving. Optional: you can melt 1/2 cup dark chocolate with 1 tsp coconut oil and drizzle on top of the biscotti for decoration... maybe with some extra pistachio crumbles? Look at you, fancy pants. I would recommend placing the biscotti in the refrigerator for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to harden again.
Pistachios contain selenium and Vitamin E which reduce skin inflammation and the appearance of scars. Pistachios also help to mitigate dryness. In combination with the vitamin E from the almonds and cranberries, these biscotti are wonderful for a healthy complexion. Additionally, cranberries and pistachios both have powerful antioxidant capabilities, which protect the body against free radical damage. In fact, research has provided strong support for cranberries and protection from breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer.
