  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup finely chopped orange peel or sub zest of one medium orange
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup finely chopped dark chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  2. To a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, spices, and orange peel. Pour in melted coconut oil. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine until incorporated. Slowly add in non-dairy milk 1 tbsp at a time while stirring. Once the dough starts to come together, form it into a ball. The texture should be slightly dry, but smooth enough to cohesively come together.

  3. Cut the dough ball in half and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Form each half into a rectangle about 9" long, 3" wide, and 1/2" thick. Leave several inches between each dough half. (Optional): Sprinkle over some coarse sugar. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temp. to 325.

  4. Using a sharp serrated knife, cut each rectangle crosswise into 1-1.5" thick slices. Place the slices upright back on to the baking sheet. Bake for another 25 minutes until biscottis are mostly dry and golden brown. Allow cooling for 10-15 minutes. The more they cool the dryer and crispier the texture will be.
