Holy cow, these recipes sound incredible!! I LOVE biscotti, but have never tried making it!

I want to make one with dried cranberries and pistachios and maybe some white chocolate bits, and the mocha-something one! And the blueberry one. And .... man, this is exciting!

Has anyone ever tried making biscotti for a diabetic?

The first time I made biscotti for our plant, I brought in three kinds, chocolate, vanilla and cappochino (sp?). The plant manager came over and thanked me. 6 people asked me if I bought them and unwrapped them and put them on platters because they were so good. There were non left. Biscotti is nice and easy to make and honestly, I think the homemade ones are better than bought. Yum. ~bliss
PS. thank you for the recipes.

Hi Qsis, I have made the cranberry and pistachio biscotti for my uncle who is a diabetic replacing sugar with splneda. It came out great and he was very happy to get this treat. I also made a version with some dark chocolate chips and walnuts with splenda and it came out very good as well.

The biscotti's don't brown as much but they taste very good.

Ah, thanks, Yakuta!

My aunt used to make biscotti B.D. (before diabetes), and I would like to make her a treat for her birthday. She'd love the cranberry and nut ones!

I know you asked this half a year ago, but, I did a search for "whole wheat pecan biscotti" (because I also have some whole wheat pastry flour and whole wheat flour).

I came up with lots of yummy results, but particularly liked this one (even w/ the chocolate!):

Lemon Blueberry Biscotti

Here's what I made tonight:

3 cups flour + more for working the dough
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon
zest of 2 lemons
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
5 Tbl softened butter
3 eggs
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
parchment paper


Preheat oven to 350F. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together into a medium bowl.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar and mix on med to low speed until creamy. Add lemon juice, zest and both extracts and blend for just a few seconds more. Now add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Gradually incorporate the first 2 cups of dry ingredients into the wet. Use a sturdy rubber spatula or wooden spoon to mix in the remaining dry ingredients. Carefully fold in blueberries, careful not to smash the berries and release their juices. Add flour if the dough is too sticky, or drizzle a tsp of ice water in if it is too dry.

Divide the dough into two parts.
Shape each half into a 3" x 8" loaf, about an inch high.
The dough will expand slightly during baking.
Transfer to a parchment-lined cookie sheet.



Bake for 25 minutes.
Allow dough to cool on the baking sheet for just a few minutes until it is just safe to lift with a large spatula (or two).
Keep oven on at 350F.



On a work surface, cut into 1/2 - 3/4" slices.
Cut carefully using firm but gentle pressure with a serrated knife.
Transfer the slices to a baking sheet with a fresh lining of parchment.
Bake another 15 minutes, then flip each biscuit and finish baking a final 15 minutes.
