These not-too-sweet, crunchy biscotti are tailor-made for an afternoon coffee or tea break.


  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. powdered stevia
  • 1/3 cup coconut or maple sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly ground coffee beans
  • 2 Tbsp. flaxseed meal
  • 3/4 cup freshly-brewed coffee
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cacao nibs (or use vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground coffee, salt and powdered stevia.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut/maple sugar, coffee, non-dairy milk, vanilla extract and flaxseed meal. Set aside to thicken slightly.
  4. Pour the coffee mixture into the flour mixture and stir well. Fold in the cacao nibs.
  5. Pat the batter into an approximately 6-inch x 10-inch rectangle. Bake for 35 minutes, remove from oven and let sit on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Cut into 1/2″ thick slices and place, cut side down, back onto the baking sheet.
  6. Reduce oven temperature to 325-degrees F. Bake biscotti for 10 minutes, then turn them over and bake the other side for an additional 10 minutes. Cookies should feel firm with a slightly soft center. They will crisp as they cool.
  7. Remove biscotti from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Drizzle, dip or brush with melted vegan chocolate, if desired. (Calorie count will go up…just saying.)

      I hadn’t made them in ages either – not sure why – guess the whims of baking. Somehow I don’t feel too guilty eating biscotti as compared to cookies. Oh – hey! I made your Grandma’s Minestrone for Sunday dinner – so GOOD! Love the seitan meatballs. The soup was so pretty and so healthy-looking, wanted to dive right in while it was cooking!

    Hahah you certainly earned the right for a treat, those were an amazing collection of salads you just posted. These look perfect for dipping!. I love chocolate dipied biscotti because when you dip it some of the chocolate gets in your coffee- just divine! 🙂

    I love biscotti! How did you keep yours crisp? I’ve only made it once, and it was delicious, but I couldn’t keep it crisp. By the next morning, it was soft, and by the end of the second day, it was icky. I don’t have a giant glass container to keep biscotti in, so any other ideas if that was your initial response? LOL

    Divine Biscotti – they look SO good. Beautifully dipped in dark chocolate. It really takes willpower not to rush out in the kitchen and start making biscotti 🙂
    I made your salad “Fruit with basil/lime dressing” – and it was so tasty I made it 2 days in a row!!

    You know, I’ve never had biscotti pregan or otherwise so I may have to try this soon. It looks yummy! Do you know what country biscotti originates from? It’s Italian right? I only ask b/c we r having an Italian themed potluck soon and I am considering what to make/bring.

    1. An Unrefined Vegan

      Italian, I believe. I avoided biscotti for a long time cuz I’d only seen it in cafes looking very sad, dry and scraggly in glass jars. But it really is very good and you can put all kinds of good things in them. Italian potluck sounds fun!

    Coffee-cacao-pistachio biscotti?!?! Is that even real?! Maybe I am miss your salad-week a bit less now!!! This is fantastic! You’ve earned it!

  6. Ashlae | oh, ladycakes

    I haven’t made biscotti in ages (2 years, at least). I certainly need to start making it again. It’s one of my favorite things to enjoy with my morning cup of coffee. Or anytime, really 🙂 And I love the combination of coffee, chocolate AND pistachios – delicious!
