Vegan Chocolate Drizzled Banana Bread Biscotti

June 23, 2022
Anyone who bakes knows that when your bundle of bananas starts to blacken, it’s time to turn them into a treat before they go bad. I usually buy bananas for the sole purpose of letting them blacken so that they are nice and sweet to bake with. Sometimes I get bored with classic banana bread, so I try to switch up what I make with them. This time, I mashed them into a biscotti batter with a some spices and walnuts and drizzled them with chocolate.

These are perfect to eat in the morning as a small breakfast with your coffee or after dinner as a dessert with your tea. This recipe will make 8-12 biscotti pieces, depending on how thick you slice them. If you want them extra crunchy, I recommend slicing them on the thicker side. I like mine to be crunchy on the outside and a little bit chewy on the inside, so I sliced mine thicker. If you don’t have chocolate on hand, you can skip the drizzle, but I highly recommend it.

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas. Stir in the oil, vanilla, and almond milk.

3. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and salt. Whisk until well combined.

4. Fold in the walnuts.

5. Pour batter into a lightly greased loaf pan. Depending on the size of the pan you use, you may need to divide the batter between two pans rather than one. I used the largest size I had and it worked just fine. 

6. Bake for 25 minutes and remove from oven. Lower the oven to 275°F.

7. Let the loaf cool and slice into 8–12 slices. Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Flip and bake for 15 more minutes, until each side is golden brown.

8. While the biscotti is cooling, prepare the chocolate drizzle. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler and pour it into a ziplock bag.

9. Cut one corner off of a the bag and drizzle it over the biscotti.
