Peanut Butter Biscotti

I must admit, I'm a little bit obsessed with biscotti. Whenever I'm bored and feel like baking something, my mind drifts immediately to biscotti. This recipe was created during one of these instances, and it's safe to say that these are my new favorite flavor (this week, at least).

My biscotti turned out fairly small, since the batter didn't spread much during baking, but that's fine with me since I know I'll be eating them all anyways!

Peanut Butter Biscotti
Ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup oat flour
1/3 cup sucanat
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
6 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
3/4 cup almond milk

Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.
2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until a dough forms.
3. Divide the dough in half, then form each half into a 1/2 inch thick log on the baking sheet.
4. Bake the logs for 20 minutes, until firm, then cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes.
5. Slice the logs crosswise into about 1/2 inch strips, then lay the cookies cut-side down on the same baking sheet.
6. Bake the cookies again for 12 minutes, then trun the oven off and leave the cookies in the oven until crispy, about another 10-15 minutes.
