All Apologies

I didn’t want to overwhelm you with awesomeness after Sunday’s Brownie Batter post.

So I waited until now to share the biscotti recipe that is the perfect vehicle for you know what.

But I owe you an apology first.

I don’t apologize often because I like to just pretend that I’m perfect and don’t make mistakes.

But if you make the recipe with the suggested ingredient alternatives, you might not like it and then you’ll KNOW I’m not perfect.

Then I’ll be perfectly pissed off.

Which leads to furrowed eyebrows, which leads to wrinkles, which leads to more imperfections.

So I’m going to fix my mistake.

Then you and I are going to pretend that it never happened in the first place.

Deal?

Perfect.

I said in the last post that you could omit the black cocoa powder and use all regular cocoa powder instead.

I lied.

You can’t.

It’s just not as good.

So don’t do it.

Whew.

I feel better now that my delusions have been restored.

Hey, is that a unicorn?

Oh, no, that’s just my perfectly amazing almond biscotti recipe.

Almonds are filled with health benefits-especially when they're filling your stomach and not the space in your freezer. This is another March "clean eating" recipe!

Made from whole wheat flour, almonds, and a hint of orange, this biscotti is perfect for dunking in your favorite latte or scooping up brownie batter dip.
