Orange Cashew Biscotti

You will Need:

1/3 cup Fresh Orange juice
2 tbs flaxmeal
3/4 cup organic raw sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbs arrowroot powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs packed orange zest (zest your oranges first and then squeeze for juice)
1/2 cup lightly crushed cashews.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together the orange juice and flax meal. Add the sugar, oil, extract and mix well. Sift in the flour, arrowroot, baking powder, salt and orange zest. When the dough starts to form kneed in the cashews. The dough will be a bit sticky, Grease a baking sheet and form your dough into a log shape about 12 inches long. Place on your baking sheet and press down to flatten the dough to about 4 inches wide. Bake for 28 minutes or until lightly puffed. Remove and allow to cool for about 30 minutes.  Turn the oven to 375 degrees. Once cooled transfer to the cutting board and with a shape knife cut into slices pressing down in one motion. You don't want to use a serrated knife or saw the slices, because this will cause them to crumble into pieces. Place back onto the baking sheet cut side down and bake for 12-15 minutes.  Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
