Baking| Chocolate Almond Olive Oil & Whole Wheat Biscotti

“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
Albert Schweitzer

Chocolate Almond Olive Oil & Whole Wheat Biscotti These are cookies born out of thankfulness, inspiration and amazement at the constant love I receive from readers of my blog. This Chocolate Almond Olive Oil & Whole Wheat Biscotti is the delicious result of the cocoa that Sheetal mailed to me a few days ago. Roasted Almond Double Chocolate BiscottiThe package had things I love – stuff to bake with … muscovado sugar {my first bag ever}, baking chocolate and cocoa powder. Sheetal said she really hoped I would bake something with the stuff she sent me. … and promised to make the same at home far away! Might as well keep you busy Sheetal, so if you are done with the tart, here’s the next bake!Roasted Almond Double Chocolate BiscottiI left the contents of the parcel on my table and looked at them every morning feeling a strange sense of inspiration and desire to bake. The muscovado sugar was the first bit I used, out of curiosity, in this absolutely divine Vanilla Plum Frangipane Tart. The muscovado made the frangipane earthy and different, pairing beautifully with the plums!Roasted Almond Double Chocolate Biscotti The success of the Plum Frangipane Tart adventure inspired me to think cocoa. As the dieting diva is still swinging back and forth on her yo-yo diet {as I call it} I thought I’d do some biscotti! It’s been ages since I made some, and this time I adapted a David Lebovitz recipe of Chocolate Almond Biscotti that I had made earlier.Roasted Almond Double Chocolate Biscotti Substituted some plain flour with whole wheat, and made the firm cookie like dough in my Thermomix. Reduced the sugar a bit, and I think I could further reduce it a little more the next time. The end result was wonderful; the whole wheat not taking any yumminess. Toasted almonds and chocolate chips do make for delicious biscotti. The teen and pre-teen were seeing visiting the cookie jar quite often while the cookies lasted!Roasted Almond Double Chocolate BiscottiThe Valrhona I used in my earlier biscotti, coincidentally was a gift from a sweet foodie blogger, Shayma @ The Spice Spoon. Hintz was what I used here, and it made this twice baked Italian cookie absolutely addictive. Do remember to use good quality cocoa

  6. The look really good, love the close up pic. I too love biscotti but have always had probs(they break) when slicing them for the second bake…any tips to avoid this happening. Also I see you have used whole wheat flour and love the idea just makes it a tad bit healthier. Is whole wheat flour same as atta, can I use atta instead of it.
    Will be trying these real soon.

  28. Are you interested in giving a gift basket as a gift to someone that you know? Whether that occasion is for a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, another special occasion, or just because, you may be wondering what type of gift basket is the best to give. Of course, it is advised that you keep your gift recipient in mind, but you may want to examine chocolate gift baskets, as they are usually something that is loved by all.

  29. This looks so good… I love chocolate. Biscotti and coffee combination is my all time favorite. I love the high resolution pics you posted too. Nice!
