Apples and Oats Biscotti
I've been craving biscotti lately and as fall is here and apples are in season now I thought of making apple biscotti. I really love adding fruits in my breakfast recipes, I find them healthier all of a sudden. Not only I added apples in these biscotti but also used rolled oats and walnuts. These are probably the healthiest biscotti ever :) Crunchy, and wonderfully flavored because of the apple cinnamon combination.
My daughters really enjoy apple biscotti and I find them a good snack on the go to their kinder garden. I personally love to dunk them in my morning coffee. It is such a delightful breakfast.
You can consider on drizzling some caramel sauce over the apple biscotti for a decadent morning treat. You can find a caramel sauce recipe here, I am sure you will love this.
These twice baked cookies are easy to prepare, and can be stored up to several days in an airtight container, at room temperature.
