You know those recipes that you know by heart because you make them so often? This is currently one of mine. I make 1-2 batches of these every week. I eat a few here and there, but they are the go-to work snack for the husband. The recipe has changed over the years, but this is my newest favorite version.
I know my last two healthy recipes have involved coconut, so if you're allergic, I’m wicked sorry and promise the next recipe will be coconut free! But the truth is my household is pretty full of nuts, and I’m not just talking about John and me.
I snack on them, I use them in all types of baked goods… (although keep the walnuts out of my coconut muffins recipe!). I hate walnuts in muffins, John loves them though so they do happen… but really? Walnuts? Stay out, okay?
A slight warning: these aren’t the hard as a rock, must dunk in your coffee, traditional style biscotti. You can eat them just fine without chipping a tooth. I can’t stand crazy hard biscotti, so maybe I shouldn’t call them biscotti… but it’s what they most resemble. Plus, it sounds so much better than twice baked cookie bars right?
Are you a nut fan or tend to stay away? Do you have nuts you love? Ones you hate? How about recipes that you love but currently are full of fat and sugar? Can I do a recipe redo?? I’m always looking for new recipes to “health up” so please please leave a comment with a link or just paste the recipe right in and I’ll do my best to make a every day, not just special occasions version for you!
After all, we’re all here because we’re Food Fanatics, right?
