GLUTEN FREE AMARETTO BISCOTTI a lightly toasted sweet treat made with almond flour, amaretto liquor then dipped in dark chocolate. These crispy crunchy biscotti are perfect for dunking in a warm cup of coffee.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto liquor
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 1/2 cupsĀ ground almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  3. To a large bowl add almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, sliced almonds and salt. Mix together and set aside.
  4. To a medium bowl add eggs, maple syrup, vanilla bean paste, almond extract, amaretto liquor and coconut oil. Whisk together.
  5. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Using a spatula mix everything together. (dough will be slightly sticky)
  6. Form two logs about 4″ long, 4″ wide and about an 1″ thick. You’ll have to mold it with your hands. Place on a prepared baking sheet. (HINT I just made to balls and then formed them into logs on the pan.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and gently move logs to a wire rack to cool. (15-20 minutes) Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
  9. Once cool, slice biscotti logs into 1/2″ slices so you form “stick cookies”.
  10. Place the slices back on the baking sheet. Bake for an additional 20-30 minutes. (depending on how crunchy you like your biscotti) Flipping half way through.
  11. Remove biscotti from oven. Place on wire cookie rack. Let cool for 20 minutes.
  12. Dip in melted chocolate and sprinkle sea salt.
