Goldie’s Mandelbroit

My mother’s good friend, Goldie, is 90 years old, old enough to be my own grandmother but behaves as young as young as a 30 year old, playing tennis until recently. They paint together almost weekly and Goldie brings the most delicious biscotti. I changed the add-ins, and you could too, but the base recipe remains the same. Pictures are 2 different types but you can’t really see their differences. .
I don’t know the source of her recipe and would love to credit the original source if anyone knows it. .
3 eggs
1 cup oil (grape seed, avocado, vegetable or even melted coconut for a more buttery texture)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup each candies pecans, dried cherries, slivered almonds AND 1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups @kelloggsus special K nourish coconut cranberry and almond cereal AND 1/2 cup dried cranberries
You can add chocolate chips to either option if you’re a chocolate lover. .
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, mix together wet ingredients then add in dry ingredients. Once dough starts to form, mix in add in combination of your choice.
Form into logs on parchment lined baking sheet.
Use a knife to mark where you’ll be slicing the biscotti after it bakes.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Slice into biscotti and lay on its side.
Reduce oven temperature to 300°F and bake until biscotti hardens, about 30 minutes
