Beside the almond flour, you will also need cornstarch, baking power, egg, butter (melted), sugar and a dash of Amaretto and grated orange zest for adding aroma to biscotti.

How to choose almond flour? When buying almond flour, look for finely ground one, as there are many kind of almond flours in the shops and not all of them are good. If you can't find it in your local organic food store, order it easily online.

How to make almond flour biscotti

Once you have all ingredients prepared, making the dough is fairly easy. Just set aside time for baking, as biscotti will be baked twice. Follow the steps below:

  1. Stirring the dry ingredients: The recipe start with combining almond flour, corn starch, baking powder and salt in one bowl.

  2. Whisking the wet ingredients: In another bowl whisk together egg, demerara sugar, melted butter and Amaretto. Don't forget to grate some orange zest to kick the flavour. Once combined pour this into the dry ingredients and stir until you get a soft compact dough.

  3. Baking the log: Shape the dough into a log and bake until lightly brown.

  4. Slicing the log and baking again: Cool the log completely, cut into slices using a serrated knife and arrange on the baking sheet. Bake until they become crunchy. 



Useful tip for baking perfect biscotti

First bake biscotti at 165°C (329°F) for about 20 minutes as they are made from almond flour. Then cool the log until it's almost cool. If you start to cut hot log it will fall apart and your biscotti won't look great. Reduce the oven temperature to 120°C (248°F).

Once cool, cut the log using serrated knife into 20 even slices (1-1.5cm wide). Arrange them on the baking sheet, cut side up and bake for another 15 minutes, then turn using a kitchen tongs as they will be hot. Bake them for another 10-12 minutes when they will become crunchy and dry.

Make these tasty biscotti even tastier

While these are perfect when made plain, sometimes you may want to do something different. In this case, consider adding all kinds of different flavouring such as dark chocolate chunks, vanilla extract, chopped dried fruits or nuts or a few tablespoons of some herb liqueur.

You can also dip biscotti into melted dark chocolate which will enrich the the taste and make them attractive.

How to store almond flour biscotti

To keep the biscotti crisp, store them in a cookie glass jar at room temperature. These almond flour biscotti will look great in this cut glass jar with airtight seal lid. If they should lose their crispness, simply toast them in the oven for a few minutes on 150°C (300°F).
