We are trying to reduce our intake of refined sugar so when we were sent some Cheery Chia bars by Supertreats I decided it was a great opportunity to try some sugar-free baking. These Orange, Carob and Chia Seed Biscotti contain no refined sugar and are packed full of dried fruit. We haven’t used nuts so the kids can take them to school, but they would also make a lovely addition. It really is a ‘use whatever you fancy’ sort of recipe, and since the base dough is unsweetened there is no reason why you couldn’t make a savoury version – I think parmesan and herbs would be a lovely starting point.
225g Plain Flour – we used Spelt
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 Medium Eggs
2 x 40g Cheery Chia Supertreats Bar chopped
50g Chopped Dried Apricots and 50g Dried Cranberries
Zest and Juice of 1 Orange
Once baked to your liking allow to cool and store in an air-tight tin. Due to these biscotti not containing any fat, they should keep well for at least 2-3 weeks.
We are currently running a giveaway to win a box of Cheery Chia bars which you can find here.
