Chocolate Pecan Biscotti #RecipeRedux

A warm cup of coffee is perfect.  Coffee complimented with a delicious piece of biscotti…….heaven.  A biscotti can be almond, hazelnut, lemon flavor, or better yet chocolate.  The cookie is crispy, crunchy, and perfectly soft when dipped into your morning cup of coffee.  Time to grab a piece of Chocolate Pecan Biscotti, then sit back and relax!

This month the Recipe Redux group had fun looking at different ways to add your favorite tea to sweet or savory recipes.  For the biscotti recipe, chocolate is perfectly complimented with matcha green tea.  I love all the health benefits green tea has to offer.  Here is my Raw Fruit and Nut Bars using matcha green tea and you can read a little about Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea.

My inspiration for this recipe comes from my new favorite cookbook Simply Sugar & Gluten Free.  I received this cookbook from author and also blogger Amy Green.  With all my new diet adventures, it is nice to find a cookbook with such a beautiful variety of recipes.  The book shares about different sugars, and different gluten free flours.  The cookbook is very helpful, and the recipes are easy to follow.  I have tried a few recipes, and plan to make many more.  The recipe I share here is adapted from her Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti recipe.
