Whole Grain Dark Chocolate and Dried Cherry Biscotti

Recipe Ingredients for Whole Grain Dark Chocolate and Dried Cherry Biscotti

1 c white whole wheat flour
1 c whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 c ground flaxseed
1/4 c wheat germ
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 c honey
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz dried sour cherries
3/4 c dark chocolate
3 oz dark chocolate

Recipe Directions for Whole Grain Dark Chocolate and Dried Cherry Biscotti

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together white whole wheat flour, whole wheat pastry flour, ground flax, wheat germ, salt and baking powder.

  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together butter and honey for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time and mix until incorporated. Add vanilla extract and mix.

  4. Mix dry ingredients into butter mixture in about three separate additions. Mix until just combined and then switch to a wooden spoon or spatula. Stir in cherries and dark chocolate.

  5. Shape cookie dough into a flattened 4 inch by 12 inch log. Try to square it off on the ends and keep it uniform in thickness.

  6. Bake the log for 30 minutes until just golden. Remove from oven, slide log (on parchment) onto a cooling rack, and let cool for 10-15 minutes.

  7. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees. Carefully transfer the log onto a cutting board. Using a very sharp knife, slice into 3/4 inch biscotti and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Arrange on baking sheet with the cut side up. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown.

  8. Remove from oven and transfer biscotti to cooling rack. Allow to cool completely and drizzle with melted dark chocolate (if desired).
