Wholewheat Eggless Butterless Tutti Frutti Biscotti | Kids Treat

During this Baking Marathon, it gave me the courage to try out different kinds of cookies and biscuits like Custard powder Coconut cookies,  Carrom seed (Oma) biscuits, and the wonderful Baked Onion Crackers . So this biscotti looked like a natural extension. Biscotti is a doubly baked cookie - simply put it resembles our Indian rusk (popular in Indian Bakeries). Wholewheat,healthy and made with very little ingredients, these were much liked by both the kids. 

I didn't cut the biscotti the usual oblong oval shape , but nevertheless we liked them a lot. I would increase the sugar slightly the next time round as I wasnt sure if the tutti frutti would be overpowered. With a good shelf life, this can be a good car snack for those long drives.

Or if you are like me, make these and then ask the husband for a long drive with the kids in tow :)
