home > recipes > biscotti > low-carb almond biscotti
from US 16 ounces sliced, blanched almonds 1 cup soy flour 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (SEE NOTE) 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 cup cooking oil (not olive) 1 cup Splenda or equivalent artificial sweetener (not Equal) 3 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon orange extract (see note) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Measure out 1 cup of almonds and set aside. In a blender (not food processor), grind the rest of the almonds to make flour. Put the almond flour in a bowl, and add the soy flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, blend the oil and Splenda. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla and orange extracts, mixing well. Add the dry ingredients to the oil mixture, blending well. Add the reserved sliced almonds. This will make an oily soft dough. Divide the dough into four sections, and form each section in a small loaf approximately 2 inches wide and 1 inch high. Put the loaves on a large greased cookie sheet (I lined mine with foil for easy clean up). Bake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes. When the loaves are done, remove from oven, and reduce the oven's temperature to 200 degrees. Take the loaves off the cookie sheet and put them on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice each loaf into about a dozen pieces, about 1/2-3/4-inch thick. Put the slices back on the cookie sheet, cut sides down. When all the loaves are sliced, put the cookie sheet back in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Remove, turn the slices over, and put back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Each biscotti is about 2 carbs. These can be stored in an airtight container or in the freezer for several weeks. NOTE: Xanthan gum is a natural microbe that adds stability to mixtures. Without wheat flour (and the gluten in wheat flour), these cookies come out *very* crumbly. The teaspoon of xanthan gum gives the cookies a very good texture - crisp without falling apart when you pick them up. Xanthan gum is expensive - $9.99 for an 8-ounce bag at Whole Foods - but a little goes a long way.

from US

16 ounces sliced, blanched almonds
1 cup
soy flour
1 teaspoon
xanthan gum (SEE NOTE)
1 teaspoon
salt
1 teaspoon
baking powder
2 1/2 teaspoons ground
cinnamon
1 cup cooking oil (not
olive)
1 cup Splenda or equivalent artificial sweetener (not Equal)
3 large
eggs
1 teaspoon
vanilla extract
1 teaspoon
orange extract (see note)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Measure out 1 cup of almonds and set aside. In a
blender (not food
processor),
grind the rest of the almonds to make flour. Put the almond flour in a bowl, and add the soy
flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon.
Mix the
dry ingredients together and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl,
blend the oil and Splenda. Add the
eggs, one
at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the
vanilla and orange extracts, mixing well.

Add the
dry ingredients to the oil mixture, blending well. Add the
reserved sliced almonds. This will make an
oily soft dough. Divide
the
dough into four sections, and form each section in a small loaf
approximately 2 inches wide and 1 inch high. Put the loaves on a large greased
cookie sheet (I lined mine with foil for easy clean up). Bake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes.
When the loaves are done, remove from oven, and
reduce the oven's temperature to 200 degrees. Take the loaves off the cookie sheet and put them on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice each loaf into about a dozen pieces, about 1/2-3/4-inch thick. Put the slices back on the cookie sheet, cut sides down.
