Author: Pasta-based
  • 3/4 cup slivered, blanched almonds
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vegan red food coloring*
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil**
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips***
Vegan Icing
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons plant milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. In a food processor, add blanched almonds and pulse to make a fine meal.

  3. Add all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt to the food processor. Pulse a few more times to combine.

  4. Add maple syrup, vegan red food coloring, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Pulse until combined - it should form into a cookie dough.

  5. Remove the blade from your food processor (or pour the mixture into a separate bowl) and add vegan chocolate chips. Using a large spoon, mix together.

  6. Divide the dough in half and pour onto the baking sheet. Using your hands, or the spoon, shape each half into a rectangle, approximately 2 x 4 inches long and 1 inch high.

  7. Bake for 15 minutes at 350°F/175°C. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly for about 10 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 300°F/150°C.

  8. Once the biscotti rectangles are cooled, cut them lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices and return to the oven for an additional 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

To make the vegan icing
  1. Sift powdered sugar into a bowl to ensure there are no clumps. Add plant milk and whisk together until creamy.

  2. Pour icing into a piping bag or you can put it into a plastic bag and cut a small piece off one of the corners to form a DIY piping bag. Use this to draw small hearts onto the biscotti for a festive look.
