  • 4 tablespoons Oil (I used avocado oil)
  • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup (pure)
  • 2 Large Eggs (cage-free)
  • 1 Large Zest of Orange (Organic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom (powdered or grate from pods)
  • 2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (I used Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF Baking Blend)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder (non-aluminum)
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips (melted for dipping)


May substitute Milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate if you prefer.


Step 1
In a medium-size bowl whip together oil, maple syrup, eggs, and zest from orange.
Step 2
In a separate bowl blend gluten-free flour, cardamom, and baking powder. Gently add flour mix to liquid mixture and fold in all ingredients until a moldable ball forms.
Step 3
GF Biscotti Logs
Split dough in half. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and form two long rectangular logs side by side.
Step 4
Bake in a 300 degree oven for 35 minutes. Remove biscotti from oven and allow to cool for approximately 10 minutes. Turn oven down to 250.
Step 5
Browned Biscotti
Before returning biscotti to the oven, cut individual slices on the diagonal. Turn each biscotti slice on its side and place back in the 250 degree oven for another 20 minutes or until biscotti is golden brown.
Step 6
Dipped Biscotti
Melt dark chocolate in a double broiler or in the microwave. Place chocolate in a flat bowl that allows room for dipping the flat surface. Dip biscotti half way up the side. Place chocolate-side up on parchment paper and allow to fully dry before placing in an air-tight container.
Step 7
GF Biscotti & Coffee
Enjoy with a delicious cup of coffee or tea.
