Granola Biscotti Recipe

“This cranberry-studded treat is low in fat but high on flavor,” writes Lori Waites from Frankenmuth, Michigan. “Because it freezes so well, I always double the recipe!”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:30 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat granola
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg, egg white and extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Break apart any large pieces of granola; stir granola and cranberries into dough.
  • 2. Divide dough in half. With lightly floured hands, shape each portion into a 12-in. x 1-1/2-in. rectangle; place each on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool for 5 minutes.
  • 4. Transfer to a cutting board; cut with a serrated knife into 3/4-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets.
  • 5. Bake for 5 minutes. Turn and bake 5-7 minutes longer or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
