Method

Laurie Pila's Low Carb Biscotti is a community recipe submitted by lauriepila and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix together the softened butter and Splenda. Add the egg and vanilla extract and blend until smooth. (Use an electric hand-blender for best results.)
  • Add the almond flour, soy flour, baking powder, anise and lemon zest. Refrigerate this mixture for 15 minutes.
  • The dough will be very loose. Form the dough into a log on a parchment paper lined cookie tray. Flatten the log to 3/4 inch thickness.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until light golden. Remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes. Cut each log into 1/4 inch slices on an angle.
  • Place these slices back on the cookie sheet and finish baking for 10 more minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes, then serve!
