Whole Wheat Biscotti Recipe

Cookie Exchange: Whole-Wheat Biscotti With Nuts and Dried Fruit

A cup of coffee in the evening (decaf for me) isn't the same without a biscotti for dipping. So many parties this time of year revolve around exchanging treats, but the treats you bring don't need to be insulin rockets. I like baking biscotti to take these to functions or to give as gifts, and you would never know that the calorie count is under 60 per cookie. Last night I whipped up a batch using almonds and dried cherries, but just about any nut or dried fruit will do.

Whole-Wheat Biscotti With Nuts and Dried Fruit

Whole-Wheat Biscotti With Nuts and Dried Fruit

Ingredients

  1. 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  2. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/3 cup sugar
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, blanched almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts)
  7. 1/4 dried fruit* (raisins, currants, cherries, cranberries, apricots, etc.)
  8. 2 large eggs
  9. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. *If using dried fruit other than raisins or currants, chop the fruit into nuggets the size of a small raisin.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a baking sheet with oil; set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt; stir in nuts and dried fruit. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and vanilla. Add to flour mixture; stir just until combined.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, with floured hands, pat dough into a loaf about 1 inch thick, 2 1/2 inches wide (and about 7 inches long); transfer to baking sheet. Bake until risen and firm, 20 to 25 minutes; cool completely on sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.
  4. Place loaf on a cutting board, and using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/4 inch-thick slices; place slices in a single layer on sheet. Bake, turning once, until dried and slightly golden, 25 to 30 minutes; cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 month.

Makes 24 individual slices.


This nutritional analysis is based on using raisins and walnuts, a classic combination.
