Almond coconut biscotti (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free)

I love biscotti.  But I want a biscotti made without sugar, gluten, and dairy that acts like a real biscotti cookie! That is a lot to ask for and Brittany Angell had the magic recipe for me. She is a food blogger with amazing photography skills and creativeness for food allergy recipes.

With alternative sweeteners you have to experiment to get the flavor you want, and the taste is better when you use a combined mix of sweeteners as opposed to just one.  Here I use vita-fiber powder (adding fiber to the cookie), Nunaturals simple syrup (best stevia brand ever), and non-gmo erythritol.  You can use whatever extract you like, but I would recommend starting out with vanilla, butter, or a nut extract and get a taste for the basic recipe.  I have to use lower oven temps as her recommendations led to burnt biscotti for me.  So adjust as needed. I also found it much easier to weigh my flours as opposed to using measuring cups.  I like exact measurements, and this makes the nutrition facts more accurate.
