Italian Biscotti

Italian  biscotti with no eggs? These crisp, delicately sweet cookies are usually packed with eggs and sugar. In my vegan version, they are just as tasty, just as crisp with no eggs, no downside...just yumminess.

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour 
1/2 cup semolina flour 
1 pinch sea salt 
1 pinch ground cinnamon 
2 teaspoons baking powder 
1 tablespoon chia seeds, soaked in 2 tablespoons soy or almond milk for 15 minutes 
1/3 cup avocado oil 
1/2 cup brown rice syrup 
1 cup soy or almond milk 
1/2 cup slivered almonds 

1/4 cup soy or almond milk 
3 tablespoons brown rice syrup 
1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips 

Preheat to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment. Combine dry ingredients and whisk to mix well. Addsoaked chia, oil and rice syrup, slowly add soymilk to create soft dough. Fold in almonds. With moist hands, divide dough in half and shape each half into a cylinder that is 2-inch wide. 

Place cylinders side by side on baking sheet and bake 20-25 min. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes. Using a sharp knife, cut the logs into 1/2 inch wide slices. Return slices on the baking sheet, bake for 3 minutes, flip and bake 3 minutes more.

Combine the soymilk, rice syrup saucepan and bring to a foaming boil over high heat. Pore over the chocolate chips and whisk until smooth. Dip the ends of the biscotti into the glaze to cover half of the cookie. Set cookies on a wire rack to set.
Makes 24-32 cookies
