Recipe: Almond Orange Biscotti

health recipes Nov 23, 2020

I rarely purchase packaged snacks, but I always have sugar, butter, and flour for my kids to make their own snacks.

Lately my daughters have been making chocolate covered biscottis which look soooo good. I am allergic to gluten and dairy so I can't eat theirs, but my craving was strong enough to bake my own.

I used to bake amazing "paleo" biscottis from one of my favourite cookbooks called Make Ahead Paleo by Tammy Credicott. So I pulled out my old cookbook and in the end the biscottis are as yummy as I remember!
