Ginger Almond Biscotti

These ginger almond biscotti have a hint of ginger and chocolate in them and are paleo, grain & gluten free.

These pictures are what I want my mornings to be.

Biscotti for breakfast, cute little white mugs, pretty fabric napkins, a leisurely gander through the newspaper and musings in a spiral notebook.

In reality, I eat eggs & bacon for breakfast in front of my computer with coffee in the biggest mug I can find (which also happens to be the ugliest one), read things on the internet and jot down notes on blue post-its all over my desk.

The only reason I even own those spiral notebooks are for keeping track of CrossFit wods (look closely at that writing), I don’t think I’ve thumbed through a real newspaper in over a year and can’t even remember the last time I wrote something for the sake of writing on actual paper instead of on a keyboard.

In fact, sometimes when I’m writing in real life, I find myself saying “ctrl-z” in my head when I want to undo or erase something.

If only that worked…

So this picturesque morning may be a bit like wishing for the obsolete, but the one thing I can make happen is the breakfast part.

Nothing wrong with cookies for breakfast.

Especially these ginger almond biscotti as they’re practically begging to be dipped into your morning cup of coffee.

They’re just barely sweet with the perfect crunchy exterior biscotti shell and studded with ginger, almonds & cacao nibs to keep your mouth intrigued with each bite.

And I promise they taste just as good laying on top of a ginormous 10+ year old snowman mug too.

Thank you this might be a nice idea to bag and gift for neighbours and friends for Christmas. I came from the cluckers in the chicken coop and am pleased to connect and pin this delish morsel ????

This recipe was amazing...was looking for a simple grain and egg free biscotti recipe and this will be my go-to choice! I substituted chocolate chips and dried cherries, but I'm sure the options are endless with a great base recipe like this. Thanks!
