So…back to this biscotti. Peanut Butter with chocolate chips and chocolate drizzle on top. I am in heaven. And I made them healthier so there’s no guilt attached to these babies. These have a bit more of a cookie texture than traditional crispy biscotti, but they are still amazing. I suppose you don’t need to drizzle the chocolate on top, but why in the world would you do that? Look how pretty it looks with my FAVORITE mug from Anthropologie…
Disclaimer: I cut these into 12 LARGE pieces, but you can definitely cut them smaller to control your portion sizes. I may have gotten a tad bit carried away when I cut them. They smelled so amazing I got a little excited. It happens.
- 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (I used King Arthur Flour)
- ½ cup unrefined sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- ¼ cup ground flax
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ¼ cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons very cold water
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, chocolate chips and flax.
- Add eggs, vanilla, peanut butter, Greek yogurt and cold water, stirring until mixed well.
- Place dough onto floured surface and knead about 10 times or so until combined.
- Form dough into a log about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide.
- Place log onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, place tray on the counter to cool for 10 minutes.
- Slice log into ½ inch thick pieces diagonally (or larger if you are like me). Place cut side up on baking sheet and bake again for 5-8 minutes golden brown (edges will be darker).
- Place biscotti on wire rack to cool.
- Don't worry if they seem soft, biscotti will harden once they cool.
