Low Carb Biscotti – Almond and Pecan (Low Sugar)

By Joanne  Print

October 31, 2018

How good are biscotti! Our Almond and Pecan Biscotti recipe was inspired by my nonna and my recent holiday. I LOVE these and I used to love my nonna’s homemade ones. I would dunk them into coffee or just enjoy them as is. I have been wanting to try a low carb version for so long, and I’m so glad I did, only 1g of carbs each!! 

  • Prep: 11 mins
  • Yields: 40 Biscuits


150g (1/2 packet) of Anna's Low Carb Pancake Mix

150g almond meal

75g (1/3 cup) Anna's Low Carb Icing Mix

1 tsp of baking powder

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

120 Butter (melted)

2 eggs

150g nuts of choice – I used half roasted unsalted almonds and pecans


1Preheat the oven at 160 degrees

2Combine dry ingredients into a large bowl (almond meal, icing mix, pancake mix, baking powder and nuts)

3Combine melted room temp butter, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoon vanilla together, then add the wet to the dry mix.

4Use your hands to knead the dough and shape into a long log shape.

5Pop rolled long into the oven for 30 mins or until browned on top and firm on inside but not fully cooked.

7Remove from oven and allow to cool completely IMPORTANT NOTE: as this recipe is almond meal based allow to chill overnight, wrapped in a tea towel to ensure a less crumbly slice.

8Once chilled, cut into biscotti shape. I got about 40 biscotti’s out of this quantity.
