Made from a mixture of spelt and almond flour, these Spelt Biscotti are a great tea time biscuit for anyone that has a wheat allergy or sensitivity. Spiced with cinnamon, these Spelt Biscotti are filled with almonds and dried cranberries making them a perfect wintertime treat to serve alongside a piping hot cup of tea, coffee, or cocoa. Biscotti is a twice baked cookie, so make sure you pay attention to the baking instructions to achieve the perfect crisp biscuit.

Ingredients

  • 100 grams almonds (unpeeled)
  • 600 grams spelt flour
  • 90 grams almond flour
  • 350 grams sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 lemon
  • 5 eggs
  • 90 grams dried cranberries (or cherries)

Directions

  1. Soak the almonds in water.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flours, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and lemon zest. Whisk together and make a well in the middle.
  3. Crack 4 eggs into the well and start kneading the mixture together until a dough forms.
  4. Drain the almonds and dry them on a paper towel. Add them and the dried cranberries to the dough.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  6. Form the dough into 2 loaves and sprinkle the top with flour. Note that the dough will be sticky and heavy.
  7. Baste the tops of the loaves with remaining beaten egg and transfer onto a baking sheet leaving room between the 2 as they will rise a bit.
  8. Bake 30 minutes, remove from heat, and let cool about 5 minutes. Do not turn off the oven.
  9. With a serrated knife, cut the loaves into 1 centimeter bars. Place the bars back on the baking sheet and bake another 10 minutes, flipping after 5 minutes, until crunchy.
  10. Cool and serve.

I sprayed the baking sheet with nonstick coconut oil spray, but you could also use parchment paper as lining. The biscotti is crunchy, but not too hard as I have found with other homemade biscotti recipes. The cherries and almonds are a nice touch I enjoyed. I served with dark chocolate and almond flavored coffee.
