Keto Biscotti Ingredients
You don’t need many ingredients to make this gluten free biscotti but some you might have to go to a bigger grocery store or you can always purchase them online. I have an Amazon Storefront that has many of these baking ingredient if you are interested.
I used butter, eggs, baking powder almond flour, Lily’s chocolate chips, vanilla extract and Swerve brown sugar.
Let’s Make This Keto Biscotti Recipe!
Here are the steps for making gluten free biscotti.
- In a large bowl beat the egg and add in the vanilla extract.
- Then add in the almond flour, baking powder and Swerve brown sugar sweetener and mix it well.
- Next pour in the melted butter, mix the dough and then fold in the Lily’s chocolate chips.
- Place a silicone mat or piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and then form a flat oval shape with the biscotti dough.
- Bake in a 300°F oven for 25-30 minutes until browned. Let it cool for 15 minutes.
- Take a straight edged knife and push straight down (gently) to cut the biscotti. Turn them on their side and bake for 10 more minutes.
- Flip the biscotti to the other side and bake for 10 minutes. Then turn off the oven and let them sit in there for 1 more hour to get crunchy.
- Let them cool completely before storing in an air tight container.
Biscotti size and shape
As you can see above I cut mine into 8 pieces. They are pretty big so if you want to cut them all in half that might be good too.
Another possibility though I have not tried it yet, is to form the dough into a flat log something like a nut roll. Then you would cut it into many smaller slices. That would give you more keto biscotti to eat! If you do this, check the first bake at around 20 minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn.
These biscotti cookies should last up to two weeks if you keep them in a sealed container. I like to freeze them so I have a sweet treat on hand whenever I want it.
Other Flavors And Add Ins To Try
Here are other flavors of biscotti to try:
- use a different extract flavor such as almond, caramel or lemon to give it a different flavor
- try adding different nuts such as walnuts, pecans, almond slivers, pistachios or macadamia nuts
- citrus zest, such as lemon, orange or lime is another way to add flavor without carbs
- dried fruit can work but you can’t use too much as they usually have a lot of carbs
- Coconut flakes, cacao nibs, sesame seeds, etc would also add texture and flavor
I really like these chocolate chip biscotti because they are sweet but not too sweet. I love the crunchy, crispy cookie texture, especially with a cup of coffee in the afternoon. Enjoy! The nutritional information for 1 piece is:
149 cals / 12.3g fat / 6.6g carbs / 4.6g fiber / 4.2g protein = 2g net carbs

This is a great recipe to make to give as a gift for my friend who is following a low carb diet. I am going to make these for her for Christmas.
What is a substitute for Swerve?
Hi Nancy, you can use any brown sugar sweetener that you like. Lakanto Golden is a good one but there are other brands out there. Otherwise you could use just a regular sweetener like Splenda, Truvia, Monkfruit or whatever sweetener you like to use but make sure it is a 1:1 ratio as white sugar. Hope that helps.
I made this recipe today and it was great! Used your suggestion of caramel extract….so good. The two changes I made were more sweetener simply because that is my preference and I added a 1/4 tsp. xanthan gum so they hold together better. After cooking per your instructions I turn the oven off and leave the biscotti in there for another 30 to 45 minutes just to dry out. I do the same thing with the maple walnut biscotti (that’s another hit in my book).
I’m so glad you like them! I have to try that with xanthan gum. I have some but have never used it. Thanks for coming back to share your tips!
I LOVE biscotti, Its easy to make and it’s delicious. I have tried some of your other recipes and was not disappointed.
