Eggless Oats Chocolate Biscottis / Oats Chocolate Biscotti

For this Month's Home Baker's Challenge, Priya given us four Biscotti recipes. Biscottis arenothing but a twice baked cookies, originated in Italy. These cookies or biscuits are oblong shaped and crunchy cookies. Of the Four Biscotti Recipes, I picked this Eggless Oats Chocolate Biscotti. This recipe is Priya's own creation, she had used wholegrain - oats in this Italian cookies that is very innovative and nice way to include wholegrain in kid's snack. I am happy that I tried this eggless oats chocolate biscottis, they turned out good and my kids loved it a lot. All biscottis vanished in two days and not even a small single piece left to their dad. And, yesterday again they asked for biscottis, so I am planning to bake another batch by tomorrow. Thank you Priya for this wonderful recipe and I really enjoyed this month's challenge. This is sure a keeper.

  • Bake the log for 20-25 minutes. Cool it for 10 minutes.
  • With a sharp knife, slice it diagonally as 1 inch pieces or roughly to get around 15-20 pieces from the log.
  • Bake it again for 5 minutes.

To Melt chocolate - Take chocolate squares in a microwave safe bowl, add 2 tsp milk and microwave in high for 40-45 seconds and use it in the recipe.
