Apples and Oats Biscotti

Apples and Oats Biscotti are the perfect wholesome breakfast treat for those chilly fall mornings. As the autumn season rolls in, I’ve been having a craving for a warm and cozy breakfast, and nothing quite hits the spot like a freshly baked batch of biscotti. But this time, I decided to switch things up and incorporate some seasonal flavors, so I came up with an apple and oats biscotti recipe.

I always enjoy adding fruit to my breakfast recipes, as they instantly make them feel healthier and more nutritious. For this recipe, I used fresh apples and combined them with hearty rolled oats and crunchy walnuts to create a wholesome and satisfying treat. And what’s more, these biscotti are probably the healthiest ones I’ve ever made!

The combination of apples and cinnamon creates a warm and comforting flavor that is perfect for the fall season. My daughters have also fallen in love with these biscotti, and I often pack them as a snack for their kindergarten.

Personally, I love to pair my apple and oats biscotti with a steaming cup of coffee in the morning. It’s the perfect way to start my day, with a delightful and energizing breakfast.

For an extra indulgent treat, you can consider drizzling some homemade salted caramel sauce  over the biscotti. 

These twice-baked apple and oats biscotti are not only easy to prepare, but they can also be stored for several days in an airtight container, making them a perfect make-ahead breakfast option. 

How to make Apples and Oats Biscotti

Start by preheating the oven and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Peel and grate the apples  before combining flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate large bowl, mix butter and sugar and then continue by adding eggs and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and mix well before stirring in the grated apples and chopped walnuts. Using a rubber spatula, shape the batter into two loafs on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. 

After cooling for 30 minutes, cut the loafs into 1/2 inch diagonal slices and place on the baking tray and bake for an additional 15-17 minutes until dry and crisp. Finally, transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Hope you will try them out. Don’t forget to tag me in your Instagram posts or stories, so I can see your amazing results. Enjoy!
