Ok.... I am making these at the moment.... but I am unsure when it is a good time to have the cookies.. in the morning with my coffee? even though I had my breakfast as well?
These cookies.. does one count as one serving of starch?
I am severely deaf and your videos do not have any closed captions/subtitles so an answer would be appreciated... I get cravings for anything sweet so this could be my answer when the time comes!
Thanks. Leah x
Sorry that no one responded to your question but I may be able to help. As it states, never eat a starch after 7pm or 3 hours before bedtime. With that being said, it is best to eat one serving of this as early as possible. We still have to wait to eat every 3 hours so try not to eat in between those times. Hopes this helps!
Fantastic recipe, came out great.
Instead of cutting back the egg when using liquid whites, I added one scoop of vanilla whey and it balanced about right. I also sprinkled splenda mixed with pie spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves) on top before baking to give it a crisp sweet crunch.
A trick I learned if the biscotti come out too dry: Put them in an airtight container with a piece of fresh bread. The moisture from the bread will spread out to the biscotti and re-hydrate them slightly.
I made these this weekend without the splenda/truvia as I don't like artificial sweetners, they came out dry and cardboard like, although they smelled amazing - does anyone have any suggestions for replacing the splenda?
This recipe is severely flawed! I followed exactly except I reduced the amount of trivia as it says that 3/4 units of Truvia is equivalent to 2 units of sugar, that would mean that this recipe would have the equivalent to 2-2/3 c of sugar....that is extremely sweet. In addition, the mixture did not look like cookie dough, it was runny and I actually had to add another cup of oat flour and a 1/2 protein powered for it to become as thick as Jamie's in the video.
