Bella’s Healthier Biscotti

This is Bella’s new healthier version of biscotti, adding in some rye flour for more nutritional value, Replacing the sugar with local honey for some healthy benefits and swapping butter for olive oil to lower the saturated fats.

  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 20 biscotti 1x



1 cup Sunrise Flour Mill White Flour

1 cup Sunrise Flour Mill Fine Rye Flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup slice almonds

1/2 chopped Medjool dates

zest of one small orange

2 large eggs

1/2 cup local honey

3 ounces fine quality olive oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

Optional Raw Sugar to sprinkle for baking.


Pre Heat Oven to 350*

In a small bowl add eggs, honey, olive oil and vanilla. With a hand whisk, whisk the liquids until they are incorporated well.

In a larger bowl add the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, almonds, orange zest and dates. With a wooden spoon stir well until all the ingredients are mixed together. Add the liquid ingredients still using the wooden spoon. JKust like the Italian Nonna’s.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Divide the dough in half and shape into two logs. I usually brush the top of the biscotti log with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with some raw sugar this is optional.

Place in the oven and bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Bring the baking pan out to cool. Lower the temperature on the oven to 275* When the biscotti is cool, using a serrated knife cut each log into 9 – 10 pieces. Lay these slices back on the parchment line pan and bake for 10 minutes, turn the slices over bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from the oven, the biscotti will become crunchier as it cools.

Store in an air tight container
