Ingredients to make Banana and walnut biscotti

  • 185 grams or 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 56 grams or 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 100 grams or 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup mashed overripe banana ( 1 medium banana )
  • 1 egg , at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup toasted , skinned and chopped walnuts

How to make Banana and walnut biscotti

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C/ 350°F. Grease or butter a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper .
  2. Sift or whisk flour, baking powder and salt. Keep aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer or wooden spoon, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy
  4. Beat in banana, vanilla and egg until smooth.
  5. Beat in flour mixture until a dough forms .
  6. Fold in the chopped walnuts.
  7. Shape this sticky dough into a log (about 10 x 3 inches) and place on cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for about 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Cool the log for 15 minutes and then using a sharp knife, slice into 1⁄2-inch slices. Place the slices, cut side down, back on the cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown and dry on top. Turn cookies over and bake about 10 minutes longer or until brown.
  11. Cool the cookies on wire rack.

My Tip:

These can be stored for 2 weeks or longer in an airtight container. Use a blackening over ripe banana for the best banana flavour. To toast walnuts , heat at 180 C for 8 to 10 minutes in the oven or on a dry pan stove top . Rub the skins off the toasted nuts and chop coarsely. Remember that the wider your dough log is, the longer your biscotti will be . It will increase in length during the first bake. So make a narrow log if you want shorter cookies or divide the dough into two longer narrower logs . While slicing , its best to use a serrated knife. If the cookie breaks or crumbles, chill for 5 more minutes and try.
