Better Healthier Baking Recipe: Double-Chocolate Biscotti
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup cocoa powder
1½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
½ cup Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil, plus 1 tbsp. for coating pans
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
1/3 cup milk
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate morsels
On sheet of waxed paper, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; set aside.
Using electric mixer, beat olive oil with sugar until smooth and light. Add eggs and egg yolk, one at a time, beating until smooth. Add milk and vinegar; beat until smooth. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture, beating until just combined. Stir in chocolate morsels with large spoon; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
Heat oven to 325°F. Grease two large baking sheets with ½ tablespoon olive oil each. On lightly floured surface, divide dough into quarters. Roll each piece of dough into log, about 1½ inches in diameter. Place logs on baking sheets, leaving space in between. Bake about 30 minutes, or until golden and set. Transfer to rack; let cool 10 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. On cutting board using serrated knife, cut each log into ¾-inch-wide slices diagonally. Place slices, cut-side down, on baking sheets. Bake 15-18 minutes, or until toasted. Transfer to racks; let cool.
