Eggless Chocolate Almond Biscotti - Sweet Punch Challenge September 2011

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Tuesday, September 13, 2011

I must be the last one to post this receipe!!!! :( This Month Sweet Punch Challenge is Delicious, Crunchy, Nutty, Chocolate Almond Biscotti from Joy of Baking. The Original Recipe uses eggs, since i bake eggless, i have substituted Eggs with Banana Puree. And also, i have replaced a part of the recipe with Wheat flour. 
Oh my i just loved baking it and was double happy when i saw my BIL's Kiddo, One-half year old enthu bundle, munching it away, saying "mammu, mammu"!!!! I baked a trial batch on Friday, just to see how the banana puree works in the recipe, it came out good, didn't have time to Click on that day, so i made a fresh bake today , to pack some-more for my BIL's son and also for my lil devil, who complained that the first bake was way too big for him to bite.

1 Cup All Purpose Flour
3/4 Cup Wheat Flour
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract ( i didn't add)
1/4 tsp Salt
1 and half banana, pureed in a mixer without water. I have used Dole Banana.
1/2 Cup Choco chips
1/2 Cup of Chopped and Roasted Cashew and Almonds mixed.

  • Preheat the Oven to 180C. Line a Baking tray with Parchment Paper
  • In  a Large Bowl Sift All purpose flour, Wheat flour, Baking powder and salt together
  • Grind Sugar along with Banana Puree. Add Sugar-Banana Puree to the flour mixture and mix well. 
  • Fold in the Choco Chips and Nuts. Roll them all into a Sticky dough.
  • Transfer the dough to the parchment paper and form a log. Since the dough is sticky, you got to wet your hands to form the log.
  • I wanted to bake small bisotti so, i made 3 small logs out of the dough.
  • Bake @ 180C for 30 minutes or until firm to touch. Take out the biscotti, let it cool for 10 minutes.
  • Cut it into Slices, diagonally, Which i actually forgot  and sliced them normal:(
  • Bake them again, with cut side down, @ 170C for 10 minutes. Turn them over, Bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Take it out of the Oven, Let it Cool, Store in an Air Tight Container, Enjoy with your Coffee!!!
  • The Biscotti had a mild flavor of the banana's, if you aren't a big fan of banana's try using Flaxseed Meal instead.
  • Baking time differs from Oven to Oven, so please bake according to your oven settings.
