Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Here is a favorite recipe from Weight Watchers, but does not taste diet, just healthy.
Boys love it! Great dipped in coffee or milk.

POINTS® Value: 2 (about 100 cal)

Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 42 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate
"Italian Classics" week continues with these delicious and healthy biscotti. Served with coffee, they make a great dinner finale.

2 sprays cooking spray, or enough to coat baking sheet
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1 oz mini chocolate chips, about 3 Tbsp
1 cup sugar
2 large egg(s)
1 tsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Heat oven to 325°F. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and set aside.

With an electric mixer, beat sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla until frothy, about 2 minutes. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and pour in egg mixture. Stir just until moistened and dough forms. Shape the dough into a 13- by 3-inch log on baking sheet.

Bake log 30 minutes and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Reduce oven to 300°F.

Cut warm log crosswise on a slight diagonal into 1/2-inch thick slices. Stand slices, about an inch apart, on baking sheet and return to oven for 12 minutes. The centers will be soft, but biscotti will crisp when cooled.

Oh boy, looking at this recipe and the other one, seems like the only workout I'll get is the repetition of mixing - LOL!

I appreciate these recipes!

Thank you!
