Coconut Sesame Seed Biscotti Recipe


Coconut Sesame Seed Biscotti

This is almost a very healthy biscotti, as long as you forget that it contains white flour and sugar. All the rest of the ingredients are good for you. This made me feel less guilty when I ate one too many!

If you don’t like either coconut or sesame seeds, substitute one for the other, in the same amount.

Coconut Sesame Seed Biscotti


Ingredients
1 cup plain flour
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup desiccated coconut
½ cup sesame seeds
2 eggs
¾ - 1 cup sugar (original recipe suggests 1 cup, I prefer less)


Method
1.      Heat the oven to 160°C/325°F
2.      In a bowl, mix flour, rolled oats, coconut and sesame seeds.
3.      In another bowl, beat the sugar and eggs until sugar has completely dissolved. 
4.      Add the flour mixture and mix until just blended. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
5.      Divide the dough evenly into 2 equal mounds and place on the prepared baking sheet. With moist hands, space the dough evenly apart and form into logs.
6.      Bake until lightly browned, about 25-30 minutes.
7.      Cool for 5 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut the logs crosswise into ¼ - ½ inch thick diagonal slices. Arrange the biscotti cut side down on the same baking sheet. Bake until the cookies are pale golden, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely.

  1. These are particularly unusual biscuits and I'm sure they taste fantastic. I usually don't like sesame seeds in sweets, but I feel very tempted to try these, at least a part of the batch.
