It’s the time of year when friends and family gather together to share meals, to catch up on old times, and to make new memories. Hosting special occasions calls for satisfying a variety of tastes and eating styles. This recipe for chocolate biscotti will surely please your crowd– it is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, oil free, and plant-based. And yes, the biscotti taste good too!

Recently it was my privilege to attend the Silk Blogger Summit at Danone’s Green House Research and Innovation Lab in Louisville, Colorado. I arrived curious and interested in learning how to add more plant-based foods to my diet, and I left enthusiastic and excited, armed with the tools to do so.

I listened to and learned from a number of team members at the Silk Blogger Summit and was impressed by their commitment to making products that not only taste good but that DO good.

Silk is proud to be part of the B Corp Movement. This is not simply a Certification, but a community of market-leaders making a positive difference, a committed approach to a better way to do business, and a way of being to make our world a better place. What strikes me the most about companies that have achieved this Certification is that it is not a check-the-box-and-move-on sort of a process. It is a philosophy that filters through every employee and every decision that is made. Powerful stuff!

The Silk family of products includes dairy-free milks, yogurts, and creamers. Incorporating plant-based options is more accessible than you might think.

#ProgressIsPerfection

Let’s start with the concept that Silk lives and breathes: Progress is Perfection. 

Notice that I didn’t say: Only eat lettuce. Far from it! There is a lot more to plant-based eating than just salads. Any small step is worth celebrating!

The concept of #ProgressIsPerfection is not centered only on our nutritional choices.

We all make choices all day long. Walking up the stairs rather than taking the elevator, smiling at a neighbor rather than walking by head down, meditating for five minutes rather than looking at social media.

Making one good choice leads to another good choice. Stop for a minute and think of the progress you’ve made today, this week, this month, this year. Be proud!

Reflecting on my own progress, I’ve changed my eating habits and am incorporating plant-based foods into my meals every day. I started with one meal a week, then added from there. Most of my desserts are not completely plant-based (I’m looking at you, butter and eggs!), but I am open to trying new recipes so let’s get into these chocolate biscotti.

A Perfect Treat for Game Night

Here at my house, chocolate biscotti will be dessert for a game night. Dipping the biscotti into hot chocolate or coffee is a great after dinner treat to share with company.

My son loves to organize game nights. He makes a list of 8-10 games and then assigns points to the winners of each. His big moment is announcing the winner at the end of the evening.

On a recent game night we had activities ranging from foosball to board games to hide-and-seek. It’s even more fun to share game night with friends.

How do you make Chocolate Biscotti?

Biscotti is a twice-baked cookie or biscuit. The dough is mixed then formed into a log shape. It is baked, cooled slightly, then is sliced and baked again. Let’s get started.

First, mix the dry ingredients of almond flour, gluten free 1 to 1 baking flour, salt, and sugar. If you’d like to make this a paleo recipe you can choose to use a paleo baking mix rather than gluten free.

Next, heat the almondmilk in the microwave. Thirty seconds to one minute is all you’ll need. Add the dark chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Bake with chocolate chips that are vegan. I used Enjoy Life 100% real dark chocolate morsels.

Pour the chocolate and almondMilk mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir in the almond butter. The almond butter acts as a binder in this recipe, taking the place of eggs.

Add the remaining chocolate chips to the dough. Can there ever be enough chocolate chips in a recipe? I don’t think so!

Form two log shapes with the dough. The logs will be about 3 inches wide and 8-9 inches long. Flatten the logs into a uniform thickness.

Bake the biscotti for 30 minutes then let cool on the baking tray for 20-30 minutes.

Move the loaf of biscotti onto a cutting board and use a serrated knife to cut into 3/4 inch slices (diagonally works well but you are welcome to cut straight across for uniform slices).

Place cut edge down on the baking sheet and bake for an additional 30 minutes, turning the biscotti over once half way through.

And there you have it, beautifully made vegan chocolate biscotti! These crunchy, satisfying sweet bites will keep well in an air-tight container for up to a week.

Thanks, Caitlyn! Biscotti are fun to make-- you could add in nuts, dried fruit, or other types of chocolate to mix these up.
