Banana Pecan Biscotti

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Lee_tah

From Cooking Light website. Something different to make with over-ripe bananas (this is the key to a strong banana flavour--the more spotted the banana the tastier.) The biscotti are very small "baby-finger" sized--probably how they earned a low calorie rating!

I have made this recipe exactly as submitted multiple times and it is a wonderful and healthy breakfast treat. I also have modified it and made it without any oil substituting Greek yogurt in place. I also add a few shakes of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and usually halve the sugar. The pictures I uploaded included a batch with some beautiful bittersweet chocolate thrown in and a drizzle on top because why not. Ha!
