These Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti aka Healthy Nutella Biscotti are such a delectable treat though! They have the nutty and chocolately flavors of Nutella, but are completely gluten free and refined sugar free.

You can enjoy them for breakfast, a mid-morning snack, or really any time! They are also pretty light and make a great snack to bring on a hike or a ski day.

 

The chocolate drizzle on top of these Biscotti is not necessary, but strongly recommended, especially if you are a Chocolate Lover. And you probably are, if you clicked on this recipe. 

To keep the ingredients sugar free, make sure you use a Sugar Free option for the chocolate drizzle. I have linked to some great options you can buy online:

or…. wait for it….. 

My personal preference is the classic baking chocolate, which usually contains just pure chocolate. The fancier brands sometimes contain Coconut Sugar or other natural sweeteners, and also tend to run on the more expensive side. You can always melt the 100% Cacao Chocolate with a tablespoon of honey or maple syrup, if you prefer something sweeter.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
  2. First, whisk all the wet ingredients together well in a bowl. Then, ddd in the dry ingredients, and mix just until everything is combined. If the mixture seems too sticky, add 1 - 2 Tbsp of Hazelnut flour.
  3. Pour mixture onto baking sheet and use your hands to form into a long rectangle, about 1/2 inch high. *Tip*: Spray your hands with cooking spray before you do this, to mitigate sticking!
  4. Bake the rectangle for 20 minutes. Remove, and let cool for at least 20 minutes! Turn down the oven to 300 degrees.
  5. Once the log has cooled down, use a sharp knife to slice the rectangle into 8 - 10 biscotti slices. Flip them on their sides and bake for another 16 minutes. Remove, flip over, and bake for another 8 minutes.
  6. While the biscotti finishes baking, melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave (or use stovetop method if you do not have a microwave). When the biscotti is done, transfer to a plate or cutting board, and drizzle with the melted chocolate. Place in fridge or freezer for chocolate firm up, and enjoy! Store in the freezer for up to 6 months, or in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
Recipe Notes

This biscotti is chocolately and nutty, but not particularly sweet. If you want a sweeter biscotti, feel free to double the honey or add a couple tablespoons of Coconut Sugar or Cane Sugar.
