how to make sugar-free biscotti

A healthy recipe for a gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free biscotti.


Michelle is back in town. For those that didn’t know she was in south FL seeing a special doctor for her eczema. She is back and still getting treatment (although from another new doctor). She will be giving an update soon. I filmed Madison’s 4 month update this morning and it will be going up tomorrow. I can’t believe she is officially turning 4 months today. Crazy. Last night Michelle and I stayed up late once again because we were planning out a few new projects plus cleaning out our emails and organizing a huge stack of recipe ideas. We have so many ideas we can’t wait to share with you!

 A quick and easy low-sugar homemade baked biscotti that is gluten-free and vegan.

Today we are making an easy biscotti recipe with ingredient suggestions to make your own biscotti. You can really have fun with customizing the flavor. We used a mix of almonds and sunflower seeds for our base.


Absolutely irresistible!!

We love biscotti. They are perfect for dunking into our coffee, which you know we love a good cup of coffee.

This was one of those recipes that we played around with on and off for a long time. We finally got the recipe that worked!

It taste amazing.

It’s easy to make.

Best of all there is no sugar added.


The texture of these biscotti are nothing like you will find in store bought ones.

These are super light and airy. Melt-in-your-mouth cookie with a soft crunch.

Due to them being light they are a bit delicate, so make sure they cool completely and store them in the refrigerator.

You can dehydrate them if you want them raw, but we prefer baking them as it really brought out the nutty flavor. You won’t even miss the sugar.


Aren’t biscotti just the cutest? They are like mini cookie logs 😉 Okay maybe logs isn’t the right word…sticks…um no…okay we will just call them cute biscotti.

These deliciously soft biscotti can be enjoyed anytime. With or without coffee.

Looks delicious!

Hi girls!! Just wanted to let you know I made these and they were fabulous! I added some dairy free chocolate chips and some pistachios into the mix to give them a little extra something. This is an awesome recipe as a base for any biscotti, or cookie I think really. Great with a coconut milk hot chocolate 🙂

So happy to hear you enjoyed them!! Love the addition of chocolate chips we will have to try that!!

What brand of stevia do you use? I can’t tolerate the aftertaste. Also I’d like to hear your thoughts about some reports of infertility with the use of stevia. I love your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and grooves ideas!

purelytwins January 31, 2015 - 9:46 am

We like sweet leaf and wholefoods brand for stevia. I do not really have any thoughts on infertility and stevia, just interesting to me. Everyone needs to do what feels right to them. Thank you for your support!! 🙂

can you use shredded coconut in place of the coconut flakes? it’s all I have at the moment 🙂

Thanks so much!!

purelytwins March 19, 2015 - 9:49 am

Shredded coconut is coconut flakes 😉

Any experiences of making these with protein powders? Either with hemp or brown rice. Maybe it would work if the amount of coconut and/or sunflower seed meal were decreased? The goal is to increase the protein content. Any ideas?

purelytwins May 7, 2015 - 10:40 pm

We have not as protein powders have a completely different texture than the coconut and seeds do. Great idea though we will have to work on a protein biscotti.

Do you think these would freeze well?

purelytwins July 3, 2016 - 5:15 pm

Yes they would be fine
