Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 30 minutes

Serving size: 8 biscottis


  • 1.5 cups of almond flour
  • 1/2 cup of arrowroot flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground all spice
  • 1/8 tsp ground clove (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey (depending on how sweet tooth you have)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175℃.
  2. Add the almond flour, arrowroot flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground all spice, sea salt, and baking soda to a mixing bowl or a food processor with the s-blade. (The dough will be very sticky after adding the wet ingredients so using a food processor will be a better idea!) Pulse a few times to combine.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and whirl to combine until it forms into a ball.
  4. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking tray.
  5. Scrape the batter out onto the prepared baking sheet. It will be sticky. So wet your hands slightly and use your hands to form the dough into a flat oval shape, about 1/2 inch thick. Place in the oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes, preferably 1 hour. Slice the oval into approximately inch-wide strips. Now they are still a bit soft and not crunchy or crispy yet.
  7. Put back in the oven at 150℃ for 20 to 30 more minutes (this is the key to getting it crispy!).
  8. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
