Biscotti

Now, who doesn’t like Biscotti? Plural for biscotto, originating from the Latin biscotus, meaning “twice cooked”, this Italian delight has made its way around the world and we love it. Its unique oblong shape makes it absolutely perfect to dip into your favourite warm beverage.

It is said that the original biscotti was made with pine nuts rather than almonds, but since then, almond biscotti has become a definite favourite worldwide and we can find countless variations of this little portion of pleasure to please anyone’s palette.

Our featured chef Fivos has made a healthy, more nutritious variation of biscotti especially for our Preferably Pure followers! Replacing processed flours and sugars, this recipe is ideal for clean eaters who avoid using processed ingredients.

This is what Fivos has to say about biscotti: “Known as Crispy and nutritious, these biscotti can serve as a great snack in the morning or afternoon. My favourite flavour is anise. Dip the biscotti of your preferred flavour in your coffee or tea and enjoy”.
