- Optional but recommended: 1-2 shredded carrots
- Optional but recommended: 1-2 finely chopped, mashed, or blended bananas
- Options: Incorporate additional shredded coconut and/or nuts as desired
- Optional: Introduce slow-burning carbs with ¼ cup of oats per cup of mix (note that oats are not Paleo-friendly)
- Mixing the Ingredients: Begin by following the steps outlined below and utilizing the specified ingredients.
- Choosing the Mix: Select either 2-3+ cups of Vanilla Superfood Protein Mix, depending on desired servings.
- Variety of Flavors: Alternatively, experiment with flavors by using Naturally Sweetened-Unflavored Superfood Mix with Vanilla extract or Unsweetened-Unflavored version with Vanilla extract and preferred sweetener.
- Enhancing Protein: To elevate protein content, add 1 or more scoops of P3-Paleo Pumpkin Seed Protein or P4-Peak Performance Plant Protein.
- Facilitating Rise: For a slight elevation, blend 1 tablespoon of Baking Powder per cup of SFM prior to adding other ingredients.
- Incorporating Carrots and Bananas: Include 1-2 shredded carrots and 1-2 finely chopped, mashed, or blended bananas for enhanced flavor and nutrition.
- Personalizing with Coconut and Nuts: Customize your biscotti by adding extra shredded coconut and/or nuts to match your taste.
- Slow-Burning Carbs: If preferred, introduce gradual-release carbs by integrating ¼ cup of oats per cup of mix (please note that oats are not considered Paleo-friendly).
- Careful Water Addition: Post-mixing, cautiously add water; account for natural moisture from bananas and carrots. Gradually incorporate water in small increments to facilitate absorption. Roughly 1 cup of water is often sufficient.
- Ensuring Uniform Mixture: Thoroughly combine ingredients to achieve a consistent batter with even flavors and textures.
- Desired Batter Texture: Aim for a relatively dense batter akin to cake mix consistency. View preparation videos on the website for visual reference.
- Water Adjustment: Should you require minor water adjustments (1-3 ounces), make them to achieve the preferred batter thickness.
- Biscotti Preparation: Utilize a spoon to place spoonfuls of batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Baking Process: Consult the general baking directions provided in the recipe.
- Cooling and Enjoyment: Allow the biscotti to cool before relishing in the delightful Vanilla Biscotti.
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!
