Spiced Chocolate Chip Biscotti

A little bit of spice adds tremendous flavor to these deliciously crispy bisctotti. I prefer to use mini chocolate chips in my bisctotti. This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 40 min
  • Ready Time : 1 hour


Makes 4 dozen cookies


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 8 ounce egg substitute or 1 cup or 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup finely ground toasted almonds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (flour though nutmeg); gradually add to sugar mixture, beating until well-blended.  Mix in chocolate chips.
3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly. Shape dough into 2 (12-inch-long) rolls. Place rolls on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; flatten to 1-inch thickness.
4. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Remove rolls from baking sheet, and let cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.
5. Cut each roll into 24 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Turn cookies over, and bake an additional 10 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove cookies from baking sheet, and let cool completely on wire rack.
7. Note: Make biscotti up to three weeks ahead and freeze.

  1. biscotti is one of my favorite things to make, and i love the idea of spicing it up!

  2. Me too. The spice makes it, especially even that small amount of ground coriander; I love ground coriander in sweets.

  3. WOW! I love all of the spices you’ve added to these biscotti. Whenever I add cinnamon to a dish, I love to add nutmeg and cloves as well!

    this is similar to the biscotti i make, but has away more spices. yum!

  5. Just like Grandma’s!

  6. I believe any baked good benefits from a bit of spice. This recipe makes me sad a little -GF biscotti have nothing on the real thing. Well, that is what cheating is for! ;)

  7. I’m going through a biscotti phase right now so I must try these! Love that the recipe calls for oil and whole wheat flour.

  8. I love your healthy twists on classic desserts!
