Fruit & Nut Biscotti Bars~ yummers



My love for fruit and nut chocolates and biscuits has led me to try this. Who doesn't like a crunchy bar for an evening snack with some coffee? Sometimes I used to wonder if I could find something as tasty as cadbury's fruit and nut and nothing can replace that. But since this is a better calorie version I gave it a try. They are crunchy, nutty, fruity and taste like the biscotti we get in starbucks.


Prep & cook time ~ 40 mins
Makes ~ 5-6 chunky bars
Recipe Source ~ adapted from Joy of Baking( it tried to alter to my taste)

Ingredients 

Nuts - 1 cup, coarsely chopped (i used cashew, walnuts and badam)
Dry fruits - 1/2 cup (green& black)
Plain Flour - 1/3 cup
Dermerara Sugar - 1/2 cup (this adds the color, i did not add coco powder)
Baking powder - 1/3 tsp
Baking soda - 1/3 tsp
Egg - 1 medium
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Salt - pinch

Method
  • Prepare a baking dish by lining it with foil on all sides and Pre-heat oven to 200 C, place the baking dish on it
  • In a mixing bowl sieve the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda, add the chopped nuts and raisins to this and coat them evenly, next add the sugar and mix well
  • In another bowl beat the egg and vanilla essence till it becomes think and changes color
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry one and mix  well with a wooden spoon
  • Now take the baking tray and fill in the mixture and flatten it with the wooden spoon. Make sure that the mixture is 3-4 cms thick 
  • Place it in the oven and bake until you see a golden brown coating on the top or till 20 minutes
  • Take the baking tin and place the foil on a wire rack to cool.
  • After 15 minutes cut them into horizontal bars and enjoy


Tips & Tricks
  • Go by your own taste and replace nuts and fruits as per your taste
  • You could replace the sugar to any other version, I used dermerara since its unrefined, brown sugar also should be good
  • You could also use the ready made foil trays available
