Almond Maple Biscotti are my new obsession. I have a serious love affair with Biscotti – any cookie really. Not so good for my whole food resolution or the button on my jeans. But these have been healthified… a perfect option for Biscotti cookies that are designed to be a sweet nosh – rather than true dessert.
Almond Maple Biscotti Cookie Recipe
But Biscotti are extra special. Sweet but not too sweet. Crunchy. And perfect to savor with a cup of coffee or tea. (Mostly coffee.)
There are a few steps to you need to follow when you make Amond Biscotti but don’t let that intimidate you. Every step is quick and easy.
The Almond Maple Biscotti will last for at least 2 weeks in a sealed container and don’t have to be refrigerated. So they are perfect to make while you are doing other things at home – just set the timer on your oven at each step so you don’t forget to come back to it. Then you have something really special to nosh on for the next couple of weeks. (Unless you eat them all first!)
Almond Biscotti Cookies
Biscotti used to be one of those recipes that I found intimidating… something about a cookie that had to be baked twice. But this recipe is really easy and it is pretty handy that they last a long time – they are perfect to make ahead if you know you are going to have guests.
It has become a fun pastime to recreate things I love – but try to limit – into more nutritious versions. Perhaps I still shouldn’t eat a dozen of them (oops!) but it does relieve me of the guilt of relishing a cookie or two (ahem…) with coffee or an Iced Chai Latte.
This recipe for almond biscotti is everything I love about Biscotti without the processed white flour and without the processed sugar. You will never know these are made with whole wheat – and neither will anyone you gift them to unless you tell them!

Are you craving cookies now? A few of my families other favorites are Cinnamon Maple Oatmeal cookies (are you seeing a trend?) and Whole Food Peanut Butter cookies. Both recipes are full of healthy and nutritious ingredients.
