Free ALMOND BISCOTTI
I made these Sugar Free Almond Biscotti for a diabetic friend, but before I was able to deliver them my mom (who is also diabetic) got into them,,,,,,,,
I had to bake another batch!
My mom loved them, I thought the first batch need to be a bit sweeter, so I increased the Stevia to ¾ teaspoon, feel free to adjust for you sweet tooth, because you can increase the sweetness without increasing the carb count.
don’t know where you can by date meal, but it is quite easy to make, if you
have a food processor. Add the dates to
the processor and zapped into grainy crumbs, if the crumbs stick together too
much add a bit of flour to absorb the moisture and reduce the stickiness. Be careful to not over process or you will
end up with date paste.
If you don’t have dates on hand you could use processed raisins. Or try using a combo of processed raisins and coconut. Whatever you use it will add a subtle sweetness and texture less than sugar does. So the addition of honey, molasses, raw agave or Stevia will be necessary to boost the sweetness.
