Nutella Biscotti

Nutella Biscotti (Adapted from Nic @ Baking Bites)

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
2 tablespoons natural cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Nutella
3 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, add eggs and beat until frothy. in a medium bowl. Add sugar - beat on medium for 2 minutes. Add Nutella and mix until combined.

Add the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Stir in chopped chocolate.

Divide dough in half and roll each half into a log on a floured surface (dough will be sticky, so keep your hands floured). Place logs onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Pat each log down until they are about about 1/2" thick.

Place into the oven and bake until the tops are firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Remove baking sheet from the oven and let cool 10 minutes. Meanwhile, reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees.

Lightly spritz the baked loaves with water and let sit for an additional 5 minutes. Using a serrated knife, slice the loaves diagonally into 1/2" thick slices.

Place the sliced pieces upright on the baking sheet and return to the oven. Bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer biscotti to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 3 to 4 dozen.

  1. I love Nutella! You are right, it is dangerous to have around. I always have some around, but just make myself forget about it. My four year old won't eat pb sammies, but loves Nutella on bread.
    I didn't get to the pizza today, but will for sure try your dough recipe this next week!

  2. Katrina - We often slather Nutella on a piece of hearty whole-wheat bread as a snack!

  3. Mmmmmm Nutella. Mmmmm biscotti. Can't wait to try this one out!
