I can’t vouch for these recipes copied off the internet or cookbooks (and altered, i.e. whole grain flour, oil not butter, no toasting of nuts, etc). Check out my Best whole grain biscotti and Advanced whole grain biscotti recipes.

About Alice

I've milled and baked with whole grains for many years, because whole grains are delicious, and white flour is missing the nutrition that protects you from cancer, stroke, heart disease, diabetes and many other diseases. Plus it's a good emergency food.
