Recipe by MarraMamba

This was developed from Mikekey's Cranberry-Almond Biscotti as I wanted to have a healthier version especially considering diabetes and fat.

I was confused if it should have been put together as one rool or 2 . I chose 2 . So my biscotti wasnt high . Very sticky to work with. But Hubby liked it. I used reg sugar and dried cranberries as there is no fresh around here at this time of the year but fall they are plenty. I will make them again. Made for ZWT4 the chic chefs.
