Wholesome gluten-free biscotti cookie recipe topped with dairy-free chocolate and crunchy pistachios to sooth a cookie craving! Fabulous to enjoy for your next tea party or holiday cookie exchange.
If you have been an avid reader here, you might notice that I just jumped from cleansing juice drinks to tasty cookies. My ultimate goal is to bring both to you just in time to for the holidays. That way you can plan your gluten-free holiday cookie tray and pre-plan a fabulous body cleanse to start in January after all the holiday treats!
Let me tell you, these gluten-free biscotti’s are delicious any time of the year and are made with wholesome ingredients that won’t break a “cheat day”, even when you hit January’s diet.
These gluten-free biscotti cookies are made with gluten-free flours, dairy-free chocolate, topped with crunchy pistachios, almond and vanilla flavors and made with better-for-you sugars.
Biscotti’s are one of my favorite treats for an afternoon tea or coffee break, to serve for happy hour with friends and to enjoy as a delicate dessert after dinner. I once thought they were hard to make at home, but they are actually quite simple to create.
The secret is, just bake them twice! That little extra time makes them all-the-more delicious. You can even create your own variations of flavors with this basic biscotti recipe.
How to make gluten-free biscotti cookies
Combine the wet ingredients in one bowl and they dry ingredients in a separate large bowl. Mix them together well then with your hands form the dough into two 11-inch long logs that are 4-inches wide. You will need to wet your hands to form the dough, and continue to wet them until the dough stretches to 11 x 4 inches.
Bake them according to the printable directions. Remove them from the oven and slice them then bake them again.
Once they cool, dip the gluten-free biscotti cookies into melted chocolate and sprinkle them with pistachio nuts or another of your favorite nuts, chopped.
Flavor substitutes for biscotti’s
In these gluten-free biscotti’s I use a combination of almond and vanilla flavoring. You can also use just vanilla, almond, anise, orange, lemon or pistachio flavoring. Want a bit of crunch? Add an additional ½ cup of chopped nuts, dried fruit or both into the dough prior to baking. Optional nuts and dried fruits include:
- almond slivers
- macadamia nuts
- orange zest
I hope you enjoy these cookies as we are this year for the holidays!
