Chocolate Almond Biscotti with Fruit and Nuts

Ingredients

1-1/2 teaspoons Ener-G Egg Replacer
1 tablespoon margarine from soybean oil
5 tablespoons water
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/4 cup no-egg protein powder
1/3 cup whole grain wheat flour
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt (scant)
1/3 cup toasted almonds, slivered
1/4 cup cold coffee or water
Topping: 4 ounces  Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Recipe Directions

Combine egg replacer, melted margarine water and sugar in cuisinart. Blend until smooth. Add in flours, cocoa, protein powder, baking powder, soda, salt and mix until just blended. Add in almonds and "pulse" in cuisinart until just mixed.

Turn the dough out onto a flat surface, and shape (flouring hands as needed) into a log 14 to 16-inches long and about 2 to 3-inches wide. (Note: shaved almonds look great, and you don't need more than one pulse, or none -- just roll them into the dough as you shape it.)

Place back on cookie sheet and bake at 275 degrees for an additional 40 minutes, turning over at at the 20 minute mark. When completely cool, melt the chocolate, and spread on the top of each biscotti. They are ready to eat when the chocolate is cool. Serving size: 1 biscotti.

Recipe Note

These will last several weeks wrapped tightly and protected from moisture.
