Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (120g) almond meal (ground almonds)
  • ½ cup (80g) wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup (40g) finely grated parmesan (see tips)
  • 1 cup (120g) coarsely grated cheddar
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • ¼ cup (60ml) olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine almond meal, flour, oregano, baking powder and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl. Add parmesan and cheddar; mix well.
  3. Whisk eggs and oil in a small jug. Add egg mixture to cheese mixture. Using your hands, bring the mixture together. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Shape, then roll the mixture into a 25cm (10-inch) log. Place the log on tray; flatten slightly.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Leave on the tray for 15 minutes.
  5. Reduce oven to 160°C.
  6. Using a large serrated knife, cut log, diagonally into 1cm (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, in a single layer, on an oven tray. Bake for 15 minutes. Turn biscotti over. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

These biscotti will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week. If they soften, return to the oven to re-crisp.

TIPS:

For a gluten-free option, use gluten-free self-raising flour instead.
