"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller
We are totally not coffee drinkers. I've never really enjoyed the taste of it (though I love the smell). No, in our apartment, coffee is one of those things reserved for a few times a year when we're so tired we can't stay awake but have something important to do. Still, the other day when I ran across some biscotti recipes, I thought, I'd like to give that a try.

Here is my first try at making a slightly healthier version of biscotti. And by healthier, I mean that I just used 1/2 whole wheat flour and no butter. But still, there are lots of chocolate chips! Irresistible.
1 egg
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp oil
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup corn meal
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup chocolate chips

To begin I mixed the wet ingredients together, then added everything else in and mixed until it was a good batter. Next I used my oil mister to spray a baking sheet and shaped a long mound of batter like in the picture above.

I put this in the oven and baked at 350° F for 30 minutes. After that time, I pulled it out of the oven, let it cool for 10 minutes then cut it into the familiar shaped pieces as you can see below.
After that I put it back in the oven to become more crispy. I put mine on a wire rack at that point and baked them for about 15 minutes at 350° F.
These were really great, and far exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended.
(We only drank half of the coffee with breakfast.)
