Found in Healthy Cooking magazine. I have not tried this particular recipe but it sounds so good that I have to save it here to try later. The recipe calls for walnuts but I'll probably sub out for almonds...feel free to use the nut you like best. Definitely a biscotti that sounds great to dip into my coffee or tea! Prep. time includes time to refrigerate dough so don't let that frighten you.

What a wonderful biscotti! I've never made biscotti before and with this easy-to-follow recipe they came out perfectly! The dough was much stickier than I thought it would be but I just floured my hands to form the dough for the first baking so it wasn't a problem. The chai flavor really comes out in these and it's very nice with the chocolate. This is a keeper - thanks for sharing the recipe!
