Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2 vegan eggs

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped

  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries

  • 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300° F (150° C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil and sugar. Whip in the vegan eggs, vanilla, and almond extract.

  3. In a small mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly incorporate the dry mixture into the wet mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon to fully combine.

  4. Once the mixture comes together into a thick ball of dough, add the pistachios and cranberries to the bowl and combine them using your hands. Ultimately, you want the fruit and nuts to be distributed evenly throughout the dough.

  5. Form the dough into a tight ball and transfer to the lined baking sheet. Carefully form the dough into a log approximately 12 inches long and 3 inches wide.

  6. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the log is lightly browned. Remove from oven and use a sharp knife to slice the log diagonally into 6-inch long diagonal slices.

  7. Place the slices (cut side down) on the baking sheet and return to the oven. Bake for 15 minutes before flipping them onto the opposite side. Bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until all sides are lightly browned and biscotti are crisp.

  8. Allow the biscotti to cool on a cooling rack. Once cool, melt your chocolate by placing in the microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring between intervals. Once completely melted, dip the biscotti in the chocolate, covering as much or as little as you prefer. Lightly salt the chocolate end of the biscotti and place them back on the cooling rack to set.

  9. Enjoy!
