Sugar Free Walnut Biscotti


Sugar Free Walnut Biscotti combines walnuts, coconut and chopped dates to make a delightful, healthy sugar free cookie.  Since it is sugar-free it is not real sweet but when craving "nutty and fruity" this should fill the bill! 

The wonderful flavor of walnut pairs well with dates and the coconut add a subtle sophisticate flavor.  We will only be using the all-natural agave nectar in these sugar free biscotti. But it is a treat that you will want to make over and over again!

These Walnut Biscotti are not only good with a hot cup of coffee or tea, but they make an outstanding homemade Christmas gift or anytime gift.  I made these as gifts for some of my diabetic friends. They were a hit and I ended up giving out the recipe to almost everyone who received them! So this recipe goes in my box of Christmas gift ideas.!
