Grain-free Dark Chocolate Dipped Almond Cranberry Biscotti with Sea Salt

With my lack of interest in sweets this year, I came to the realization that if I just started making sweet recipes to post here on the blog, I would eat them, simply because they were here. This is my number one rule for being mindful of how I eat and not making bad decisions. If you don’t have it in the house, you can’t and won’t eat it. Even with not being much of a dessert or baked goods person, my hatred of wasting food would definitely beat out my disinterest in any sweets. So, I have opted to just not make many sweet things this holiday season. Problem solved.

Though this time of year tempting sweets sseem to be around every corner, it doesn’t mean we have to overindulge. It is totally possible to enjoy a little something sweet without the massive guilt that usually immediately follows. I don’t love the idea of taking care of yourself all year round and then going hog-wild at the holidays. For me, a little indulging here and there is good, but there is no logical reason to consume several pounds of sugar over a two week period, just because of the time of year and because that’s “what we do”.

Sure, I haven’t found myself much in the mood for sweets this holiday season, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it also doesn’t quite feel like Christmas without at least one batch of cookies. Enter these grain-free, vegan, ever so perfectly sweet Dark Chocolate Dipped Almond Cranberry Biscotti with Sea Salt! These cookies will likely be it for us this year in the Christmas cookies, and I am totally OK with that. They are all the cookie I could ever want.

These grain-free, vegan Almond Cranberry Biscotti are the perfect, dip-able treat. Begging for a hot cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea or maybe some spiked eggnog to be dunked into. They are just the right amount sweet, with a little tartness from the cranberries and they are wonderfully crispy, finished off perfectly with dip of dark chocolate and just a hint of sea salt.
