TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:28 servings
- 2 eggs
- 1 egg white
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips or white baking chips
- 1. In a small bowl, beat eggs, egg white, syrup, sugar and vanilla until blended. Combine flours and baking soda; gradually add to egg mixture and mix well (dough will be sticky). Stir in walnuts and cranberries.
- 2. With floured hands, shape into two 10-in. x 2-1/2-in. rectangles on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 22-26 minutes or until set.
- 3. Reduce heat to 325°. Place pan on a wire rack. When cool enough to handle, transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 1/2-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
- 4. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Place biscotti on waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with chocolate; chill until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 28 biscotti.
