Week 6 of #VlogChallenge was all about food. So I tried to video myself making biscotti. First disaster happened even before I started recording, I just didn’t want to. I wanted to curl up and hide someplace, but #VlogChallenege has been good for making me do *something* and also for preventing me from fiddling with things until they’re “perfect.”

Here’s the ingredients, (as the second disaster was that I failed to press record when adding them to the bowl)

To make beautiful (vegan) biscotti … You will need

2 cups flour
1 cup ground almond
1 cup almond milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pistachios, because I like them, you could use more almonds)
1/4 tsp baking powder (ish)

Brilliant video aside, this isĀ  one of my favorite thing to make, and I’ve also dipped one end of the final biscotti fingers in chocolate, dark delicious chocolate. It was for Christmas Eve breakfast, with some really nice coffee (and really nice friends.)

Once you’ve made it a few times you can start getting cocky and doing stuff like adding chocolate powder to the mix and some chunks of dark chocolate instead of the chopped nuts. Then you’re doomed, as it’s gorgeous and you’ll just have to eat it all.

I wonder what the next #VlogChallenege will be?
