Very low fat and tasty biscotti that are great for coffee or tea. Great to give as a holiday gift, wrapped up with a new tea cup and some homemade tea or coffee mix.

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup finely ground almonds
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3 tablespoons poppy seeds
1 egg
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine flour, sugar, ground almonds, baking powder and baking soda. Combine lemon peel, poppy seeds, egg, egg whites and lemon extract. Add dry mixture and mix well. Form the dough into two logs. Place logs onto prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Bake slices another eight to 10 minutes until dry. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
