    Okay, these look unbelievable. What a fantastic combination and a perfect cookie to start our great event! These would make such a great holiday gift to give! I have not made biscotti in years, so this would be a great time to start it up again!

    Could you sub a different nut (like almonds or macadamias) in this recipe with no ill effects? Or does it really only work with pistachios? Thanks!

    Amy Reply:

    @Christa, You can put any type of nut. It doesn’t affect the recipe at all.

    Also my first Christmas gluten-free. My husband loves pistachios and cranberries, so I’ll have to give this recipe a try.

    Lots of good stuff from iherb, but one product we found out about recently was spirulina – an algae that can be added to our smoothies to make them more nutrient packed and also help my body absorb veggie-type nutrients since I still have digestive issues with veggies (going gluten-free hasn’t completely solved my GI issues unfortunately and I was told to avoid most raw veggies.) iherb has a nice powder version of the algae I’d love to try.

    Recipe looks really good. Thanks for posting! I’m curious, though, about how palm sugar and agave nectar are superior to cane sugar (sucrose) or other forms of fructose. I have been led to believe that sugar = sugar = sugar.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Dianne A, I can’t eat white sugar – have you read why in About Amy? Here’s some good info about palm sugar.

    And, you can read about agave here and here.

    Palm sugar & agave work for me. White sugar doesn’t. I think it’s important that everyone makes their own choices about food.

    Ok I got down to it and finally located all my ingredients locally to make your buckwheat pumpkin muffins and they are stupendous!
    Only thing is when I made the high protein blend with a garbanzo and fava instead of just garbanzo.
    I’m still trying to find the breadman breadmaker and when I do I wondered if the garbanzo/fava mixture will be ok for the bread.
    The muffins seemed just fine with it.

    No, it doesn’t taste like beans at all. This is the same flour blend I used in my book and all my testers loved it.

And back 15 years ago when I was diagnosed with celiac, there weren’t many pre-made produucts out there but Pamela’s had biscotti and that was my introduction to biscotti. I also love that they aren’t so stinking sweet, usually.

    @Patricia Grandchamp, What kind of flour are you using? And, did you make any changes at all to the recipe? Can you tell me how you measured your flour? Did you spoon the flour into the measuring cup or did you dip it into the flour bin?

    The more information you give me about how you made the dough, the easier it’ll be to tell where the problem lies.

    Hugs,

    @Amy, hi amy, thanks for the reply. i use a gluten free flour,i buy from my gluten free bakery,it already has xantham in it, so i don,t add extra. I do dip my measuring cup in bin for flour,but i level it evenly. What do you think?

    @Patricia Grandchamp, In the recipe, there is a link to my Basic Flour Blend – that’s the blend I use so using something different will create a different result. I don’t know how much Xanthan Gum they use or what flours are in there. But, dipping your measuring cup into the flour bin sounds like your biggest problem. You should always scoop the flour and sprinkle it into the measuring cup so it’s not packed in. Then, level it off. If you pack it in it’ll have way too much flour. I suspect that it’s causing the dry, crumbly biscotti.

    Hugs,

    Hi Amy! These look delicious! I’m not a huge fan of biscotti (I prefer my cookies a little softer), but loved recipe/cookie ingredients……Any ideas how I could alter this to make regular cookies (same recipe…just not a biscotti form?) Thanks! Ari

    I am soooooo happy to find these, since my daughter is coming for Christmas it just wouldn’t be the same without biscottis. Thank you for daring to go where the rest of us wouldn’t, making life just a little bit easier (and sweeter) for us.

    Sigh…again with the misdirecting label of “sugar free.” Just because it doesn’t come in white crystal form doesn’t necessarily make it “not sugar” to a diabetic. Agave nectar is a sugar. Honey is a sugar. Palm sugar is – guess what? – a sugar! It may (or may not) have a lower glycemic index, but it’s still not “sugar free.” How about calling them “naturally sweetened” or “No Refined Sugar?” That way the diabetics won’t be disappointed again and again.

    Amy @ Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free Reply:

    @Aggravated Diabetic, If you look at my header, it says ‘refined sugar-free.’ And, quite honestly, I’ve talked to many, many diabetics who can eat the food I cook as long as they balance out the rest of their day. In fact, many of them told me that they don’t want to eat Splenda or sugar alcohols so they choose their dessert carefully. No where did I ever claim that my recipes are diabetic friendly.

    Instead of being aggravated, you might try looking for a solution that works for you. I know first hand how difficult it is to eat on a limited diet. The list of foods I can’t eat is longer than I care to think about. So, I trained myself to look for what I could eat and how to transform the foods I couldn’t eat into something I can. It wasn’t my first choice, but it was my only choice. And, I’m very happy and healthy this way.

    Hugs,
    Amy
