Almond Anise Biscotti
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil (vegetable or canola)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 3/4 cups Bob's All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch or arrowroot
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 tbsp anise seeds
  • 1 cup whole, blanched almonds
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  2. Mix the flaxseed with the almond milk and let sit for a couple minutes.

  3. Add the sugar, oil, and extracts.

  4. Mix in the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and anise seeds. Fold in the almonds.

  5. Place the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Shape into a 12 x 4 inch log.

  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes and change the temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  7. Once the biscotti log has cooled, cut into 1/2 to 1 inch slices. Use a large knife and try and cut them in one motion - the dough will be very crumbly, so be careful! 

  8. Bake on the cut side for 8 minutes, then flip and bake for another 8 minutes.
