Sugar-free biscotti with dried fruit
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup flaked almonds
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup currants

Method

Sugar-free biscotti with dried fruit
  • 1
    Preheat oven 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • 2
    Mix the flour, almonds, pistachios, fruit and orange rind together in a large bowl.
  • 3
    Put the eggs and honey in a small bowl and whisk to combine.

    Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the egg mixture. Stir together to form a thick dough. Turn the dough onto a clean floured surface. Divide into 2 portions, then roll each portion into a log about 4 cm wide. Arrange the logs on one of the baking trays, leaving some space between for spreading. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool on the trays.
