Ingredients
  

***Cup/ spoon measures in notes below.

  • 115 g dairy-free butter or shortening, 5g almond extract, 5g vanilla extract, 2 chia "eggs" (see notes)
  • 150 g light brown sugar, 50g almonds, 50g pepitas, 25g sesame and/ or poppy seeds
  • 250 g cake flour, 6g baking powder, 2g baking soda, 1g salt
  • 100 g dark chocolate

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).

Biscotti

  • In a large bowl, cream together the dairy-free butter and sugar. Add the chia “eggs” and mix well. Stir in the almonds, extracts and seed varieties. Lastly, sift the dry ingredients and fold in gently.
  • Turn the dough out onto the prepared baking paper, and press oblong in the shape of a log about 4cm (1.5") wide. Bake for 20 – 30 minutes, or until slightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Transfer the biscotti to a cutting board and decrease the oven temperature to 150°C (300°F). Slice the biscotti in diagonal pieces of about 1.5cm (0.5") thick.
  • Place the cookies back on the tray, cut side down. Bake five – 10 minutes, or until lightly colored, then turn and bake again. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Dipping

  • Temper the chocolate using the "seeding method". Dip the ends of the cooled biscotti in and place on a baking sheet to set.
