Vegan Vanilla Almond Biscotti Recipe

First things first: thank you all so, so much for the kind words on yesterday’s post about finally becoming an RD. I still can’t believe that I’m really done! It’s been an honor to share my back to school journey with all of you over the past 3 years. Thank you for reading and stay tuned to see what comes next. :)

And now – a new recipe! I’m officially obsessed with biscotti.

After my Whole Wheat Pumpkin Goji Biscotti success in December, I decided it was time to try my hand at another batch, because let’s be honest… lattes just aren’t quite the same without biscotti.

This time, the goal was an old favorite: almond biscotti, but with a twist – no milk or eggs so my vegan friends could enjoy it, too.

It was a major success, if I do say so myself. Like last time, these are whole wheat and lower in sugar than normal biscotti, too. Instead of skim milk, I used Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla almondmilk, which not only kept the recipe vegan but also added a fun hint of vanilla to the biscotti, too. It’s only 30 calories per serving, 100% free of lactose and dairy, and also adds a little calcium punch to the mix – it has 50% more calcium per serving than skim milk!

Did I mention they’re delicious? My friend Gena happily served as my taste tester and gave them 2 thumbs up. :)

    These are great sounding! Do you think if I used almond meal/flour instead it would work? I have a gluten intolerance and would love to have a biscotti!!

    Great recipe! I’m not a big biscotti fan but my mum would love these! Love the simplicity of the ingredient list! So you twice bake it?

    These look so yummy! I can’t wait to try them! Thanks!

    Almond, dipped in chocolate. Nothing gluten free, low sugar or low cal about those. Which is why I rarely ever eat them.

    Can you make this gluten free also? Maybe with almond/coconut/fava flour? I’m not much of a creative baker, I just like to follow recipes, but I’m Gluten free, but these sound amazing!

    Congratulations on becoming an R.D. :)

    I’m loving the whole wheat in these biscotti! I can imagine how tasty they must be dunked into a hot cup of joe. Thanks for sharing!

    You have NO idea how much I have been looking for a biscotti recipe – one for a vegan coffee-loving friend. I kept looking for anything vegan at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, came up with nothing, and I also didn’t want a cranberry pistachio one – ick. Thank you, Anne!

    Yummmm!

    these look delicious, i was going to try them tonight but in perusing other biscotti recipes i see that most others include eggs/oil. Does the almond milk substitute for the fat content in these cookies? Thanks!!

    Trying this but I have no whole wheat pastry flour, so I’ll be subbing : Per 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour substitute 1/2 cup cake flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
