Almond Biscotti with Saffron (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free)

Almond Biscotti with Saffron (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free)

These almond biscuits will be a little chewier than the common biscotti. That’s because I use honey or agave instead of sugar and almost only almond flour (instead of a combination of almond meal and wheat flour). But that doesn’t make them any less delicious!

They go great with tea or coffee or as a snack. Replace saffron with an extra teaspoon of cardamom and combine with adding raisins to the mix for an Almond Raisin Biscuit.
