Are Biscotti considered Dessert?

Because I love love love biscotti. And I love figs & chocolate. So Chocolate fig biscotti seems like the most delicious dessert-y creation ever.

stolen from La Vita Vegan.

1 ½ cups of plain flour, sifted.
½ teaspoon of baking powder.
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
2/3 cup of sugar.
2/3 c silken tofu or 1 large mashed banana
1 cup of dark chocolate, chopped.
½ cup of dried figs, chopped.
1/2 tsp cinnamon (can be left out if you aren’t a fan)
sugar for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder and cinnamon, if using, into a large bowl.

Chop up your chocolate and figs.

In a blender, puree the tofu until smooth and consistent. Pour this tofu mixture into a smaller bowl with chopped chocolate and chopped figs.

In three batches, add your tofu mixture to the dry ingredients. It’s easiest to do this with your hards, so be prepared to get a little dirty.

Once your dough is stiff and solid, you can knead it on a lightly floured surface until it is completely smooth.

Roll out to form two large logs, like french bread loaves.

Flatten your logs slightly and place them on parchment paper. Sprinkle on some sugar to make the tops crispy and bake for about 20 minutes.

Once they are completely cool to the touch, cut your loaves into smaller cookies at a diagonal angle. You want them small enough to eat in a few bites, but also long enough to dip into coffee without melting your hands off on the first dip, so bear that in mind. Once all your cookies are cut, bake them again on your parchment paper at the lower temperature of 300 degrees for another 8 to 10 minutes, or until they are completely hard to the touch.
