Italian Almond Biscotti

13 servings (cookies) Prep time: 20 min + 45 min to chill

I love a cookie as much as the next guy, and over the years I’ve learned how to make them with clean, nutritious ingredients.

Almonds are the star of this recipe, which are a great source of calcium. Pistachios add another layer of flavor along with potassium and phosphorus, and nuts in general are a great way to get more fiber and healthy fats into your diet. Since the risk of osteopenia and osteoporosis increases with age, it’s important to cultivate strong bones throughout life with mineral-rich foods like these. Keep in mind cookies should always be treated as an occasional indulgence, but you might as well get some supportive nutrients in the process!
