Double Chocolate Vegan Biscotti Recipe


These double chocolate biscotti cookies are vegan. Most of us probably think that as long as there are no eggs or animal products in a recipe that it is vegan. That is not always the case. Many companies that produce sugar use bone char during the production process. Bone char is the process of charring animal bones. This process is used to strip sugar of any color, making it white. This process causes many sugars to not be vegan.

There are many companies that do not use bone char. When making these cookies I used Florida Crystals Organic Sugar. It is a less refined sugar. In addition to the sugar, I had to seek out vegan chocolate chips. Typical chocolate chips have additives related to animal products, such as sugar and milk. For this recipe I used 365 Vegan Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. This is a Whole Foods brand found at their stores. The chocolate chips were a bit less sweet than your typical semi-sweet chocolate chips. With a little bit of research you can find vegan products at your local supermarket. If not, you can always contact them with your feedback if these are products you are interested in.
