Almond Flour: This is the base of this gluten-free biscotti recipe. It is rich, moist and lends a delightful light, almond flavor. I do not recommend replacing it with anything else, as it has its own unique texture.
Almond Butter: Use a thick, creamy almond butter for best results. If the oil has separated in the jar, be certain to give it a good stir before measuring out for this recipe.
Almond Extract: This is essential in any good almond biscotti recipe. Having said that, if you do not have any on hand, you can use vanilla extract for a still-tasty biscotti recipe.
Earth Echo Cacao Bliss: Earth Echo Cacao Bliss is made with raw cacao powder, turmeric, MCT powder, lucuma, mesquite and more for both flavor and added nutrition.
Slivered Almonds: Almonds add extra crunch to this biscotti recipe, but if you do not have any on hand, you an omit them or replace with whole or sliced nuts or seeds of any type.
Salt: Salt only serves to enhance all flavors in most recipes, but this especially true where chocolate is at play.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon adds natural sweetness, warmth and blood sugar stabilizing properties.
Maple Syrup: The tiniest touch of maple syrup is used in this recipe to add both moisture and additional sweetness to balance the stronger almond notes.
Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is used in the optional chocolate glaze for this recipe. You can forgo the glaze if you do not want to use coconut oil. Or you can simply use melted dark chocolate for the glaze drizzle, too.
Toppings: Once the biscotti is baked, you can sprinkle it with toppings for extra beauty, texture and flavor. See some wonderful topping ideas below!

While I know it can be hard to wait, allowing the biscotti ample time to cool will result in the best slightly crunchy, crumbling biscotti-like texture.
