Vegan Biscotti update

Hey so remember last week I made that sunflower seed biscotti using 1 real egg and one flax egg... well I made it again and used 2 flax eggs and no real eggs. I give you vegan biscotti. John no joke ate the batch in under 48 hours... wow, and said it was the best batch to date... who knew!

Only suggestion, when you mix it all together, use your hands and kneed it like dough, using a spoon just didn't seem to work so well :)


(yeah I know it's the same pic from last week... whooops! but john ate them too quick!)

Sunflower seed biscotti - vegan version!

1/2 cup sunflower seeds (unsalted)
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup splenda granulated (or 1/3 cup white sugar)

Yay for vegan biscotti! Thanks for the flax-y experiments, looks like they paid off! :)

I'll take mine with the dark chocolate. They look scrumptious, Steph!

Mmm, I love biscotti! The fact that they are vegan makes them even better. :)

You definitely make biscotti sound delicious. I really have to give it another try.

Question for you: I want to make strawberry rhubarb pie but healthy. I know you have a delish looking recipe posted but its one of your rare splurges. Any advice? Like a healthy pie crust that you know works? Thanks!

pie crust is the one thing I can't seem to get healthy and have it taste good :( you need the butter for it to work hehe. Only suggestion would be to put it in a graham cracker crust using crushed crackers and honey... but other than cutting some of the sugar from the filling... that's all I got :(
