- Carrots and Bananas: For added flavor, include 1-2 shredded carrots and 1-2 finely chopped, mashed, or blended bananas
- Customization: Enhance your mix with chocolate chips and/or nuts according to your preference
- Slow-Burning Carbs: Optionally, incorporate ¼ cup of oats per cup of mix (note: oats are not Paleo)
- Water Incorporation: After mixing, add water sparingly. Often, bananas and carrots contribute enough moisture. Approximately 1 cup of water should suffice in most cases
- Thorough Mixing: Mix the ingredients thoroughly until achieving a batter consistency similar to cake mix (refer to preparation videos on the website)
- Consistency Check: Ensure the batter is moderately thick, resembling cake mix texture
- Water Adjustment: If necessary, add a small amount of water (1-3 ounces). Remember, it’s easier to add water than to remove it. Begin with a small quantity and increase as needed. Avoid excessive water that could compromise batter thickness
- Baking Preparation: Place the batter on a baking or cookie sheet, adhering to the general directions provided above
How To Make Nutritious & Delicious High Protein, Nutrient Dense Biscotti
- A biscotti is simply a double baked cookie-like treat, usually with slight variations of the ratio of flour to sugar to eggs, etc. to make it come out nice and crisp.
- There are several ways to make Biscottis with superfood mix, and we’re still experimenting with them (since SFM has no sugar or flour, which are keys to getting the hard consistency of biscottis, it is a bit challenging to make them come out quite as hard & dry as a regular biscotti).
- We’ve made them both with and without eggs added (typically 1-2 eggs per cup of SFM used), it works out fine either way so try both ways to determine your preference.
- Simply follow any of the recipes given below or your own variations; spread the completed mix onto a large baking pan and shape it into a rounded, flattened loaf; use parchment paper or grease the baking tray to prevent it from sticking;
- Bake it until done (test with a toothpick) typically 25-35 minutes; allow it to cool;
- Slice the loaf into strips approximately 1-1.5 inches wide and lay them flat on the baking tray; you may need to re-grease the tray if not using parchment paper;
- Bake again at the same temperature for another 15-25 minutes (being careful not to burn or overcook them);
- Allow them to cool and they should turn out looking like a biscotti!
