If you can’t make it to Italy to enjoy authentic home-baked biscotti in person, try baking some yourself instead. They’re a healthier treat than most sweets and are perfect for the whole family. Dunk them in milk, hot tea or coffee!

Makes 25 to 30 biscotti

1/2 cup Kretschmer Honey Crunch Wheat Germ

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for shaping dough

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup sliced almonds

3 ounces finely chopped bittersweet chocolate

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350° F. To toast almonds, spread nuts in a single layer on ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Set aside.

In large bowl mix together wheat germ, flour, salt, baking powder and brown sugar. Stir in almonds and chocolate.

In separate bowl lightly whisk together eggs and vanilla. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients and, using your hands, mix until dough comes together. Divide dough in half, forming each into a 10 x 3-inch log. (If dough is too sticky to work with, flour your hands before shaping it into a log.)

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place logs onto prepared baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until firm. Remove baking sheet from oven and cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 325° F. Transfer logs onto a cutting board and cut each into 1/2- to 3/4-inch diagonal slices. Place slices, cut side down, back onto the baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown, turning slices over after 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely on wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
