Italian Vegan Biscotti | Cinnamon & Dried Fruit

HOW TO

Preheat the oven to 180C.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and caster sugar.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, oil and amaretto.

Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, add cranberries, hazelnuts and chopped dried fruit, and stir well.

Tip onto lightly floured work surface and knead for a few minutes to bring the dough together into a ball.

Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Divide dough in half and roll each piece into a log about 22cm long.

Place both logs on a baking tray, leaving a large gap between them to allow to spread.

Bake for about 30 mins, turn off the oven and leave them inside to cool down until barely warm.

Take them out and using a serrated knife, cut them into slices, about 1cm thick.

Preheat the oven again to about 150 C, place biscotti slices on a baking tray and bake for about 15 minutes, allowing them to crisp up. Leave to cool completely.

Enjoy!

    I am drooling! Is there a way to substitute sugar with honey for these? I’d love to try them!

      Yes, absolutely! I eat honey as a vegan because I live in greece and it’s the most ethical way to go for so many reasons.

    My daughter has a daughter allergy so this peaked my interest in vegan foods a few months ago. Now I’m always looking for some vegan alternatives for just about anything for the sake of my cholesterol levels most of all. These look like a great rewarding snack to indulge in during nap times. 🙂

    Mmmm biscotti are one of my favourite treats! I’ve never attempted to make them as I’ve always been worried about burning them lol. Might have to try this recipe though, especially with the cinnamon.

    I’m not a huge biscotti fan but this looks really yummy. It looks somewhat softer than typical biscotti. And I would probably like it more.
