Double Chocolate Mocha Biscotti (gluten-free)
I made these cookies over the weekend to take to a friend we were visiting for dinner. I was looking for something quick, tasty, and made with almond flour (for my husband). I found these on Elana's Pantry. They fulfilled all the above requirements, plus delicious and super easy. These little biscotti are sturdy with a nice texture, heft and crunch - these are no delicate wallflower cookies. They will definitely stand up to dunking!
Quick ingredient note: I didn't have cacao powder so I used cocoa powder. I also didn't have arrowroot powder, but cornstarch can be substituted. I used regular coffee (freshly ground, of course!), and sea salt from Slovenia (brought back from our 2015 trip) but I'm sure any good quality sea salt can be used.
Unfortunately, dinner was rescheduled but the cookies were already made so we'll just have to suck it up and eat them ourselves! ;-)
