Healthy Peanut Butter Biscotti Recipe
Discover a delightful Peanut Butter Biscotti recipe by following these steps and using the provided ingredients.
- 2-3+ cups of either the Naturally Sweetened-Unflavored Superfood Mix or the Unsweetened-Unflavored version with your preferred sweetener.
- Optional: Elevate protein content with 1 or more scoops of P3-Paleo Pumpkin Seed Protein or P4-Peak Performance Plant Protein. Choose the fitting flavor.
- Optional: For enhanced rise, add 1 tablespoon of Baking Powder per cup of SFM before mixing other ingredients.
- Add approx. 1 tablespoon of your favorite peanut butter per cup of Superfood Mix used.
- Optional but recommended: 1-2 shredded carrots
- Optional but recommended: 1-2 finely chopped, mashed, or blended bananas
- Options: Customize with peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, extra shredded coconut, and/or nuts as preferred.
- Optional: For additional slow-burning carbs, consider adding ¼ cup of oats per cup of mix (note: oats are not Paleo-friendly).
- Basic Mix: Create the base Superfood Mix by selecting Naturally Sweetened-Unflavored or Unsweetened-Unflavored, with your choice of sweetener.
- Quantity: Opt for 2-3+ cups of the prepared Superfood Mix based on your desired servings.
- Protein Boost: Amplify protein with 1 or more scoops of P3-Paleo Pumpkin Seed Protein or P4-Peak Performance Plant Protein. Align with the flavor you’ve chosen.
- Rise Enhancement: For a slight rise, mix 1 tablespoon of Baking Powder per cup of SFM before adding other components.
- Peanut Butter Addition: Incorporate around 1 tablespoon of your preferred peanut butter per cup of Superfood Mix for delightful taste.
- Carrots and Bananas: Elevate nutrition and flavor by adding 1-2 shredded carrots and 1-2 finely chopped, mashed, or blended bananas.
- Customize with Extras: Make the biscotti your own by introducing peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, extra shredded coconut, and/or nuts according to your preferences.
- Slow-Burning Carbs: Optionally, integrate slow-burning carbs by including ¼ cup of oats per cup of mix (remember: oats aren’t Paleo-friendly).
- Manage Water Content: After mixing, judiciously add water. In many instances, the natural moisture from bananas and carrots is sufficient. Around 1 cup of water typically does the job.
- Ensure Consistency: Thoroughly mix to attain a consistent batter texture, akin to that of cake mix.
- Desired Batter Consistency: Strive for a batter consistency that’s moderately thick, resembling that of cake mix. For guidance, refer to the preparation videos accessible on the website.
- Water Adjustment: Should it be necessary, incrementally add a touch more water (1-3 ounces). Remember, adding water is simpler than removing it. Start small, and gradually increase if needed. The key is to avoid excessive water, which can compromise batter thickness.
- Shape and Bake: Place the batter on a baking sheet or cookie sheet and adhere to the general directions as 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!
