Biscottis are Italian cookies, which are baked twice to attain the crispness . It is also called as "coffee cookies".This month, Priya Suresh, gave us this challenge. The challenge included savoury and sweet biscottis. First , I thought, I would prepare savoury biscottis. But my chocolate loving son said" Iwant chocolate biscottis". Without , further a due, I went to bake chocolate biscottis. After baking the biscottis, he was so excited and finished the box within 2 days. This is something rare in our home, as I have to feed everything to my boys, except chocolates. After finishing up his biscottis , Rohith said " Mom , when I grow up, I want to learn how to make bisctottis". I asked why ?. He said, "Because I love these cookies and want to make them on my own." I was so happy by his verdict. Have to thank Priya for her recipe. Geared up again to make the cookies . Try these simple , healthy cookies.

Take the flour,rolled oats,cocoa powder,baking soda,baking powder,salt in a vessel. I have used instant oats, instead of rolled oats. It works fine.
Meanwhile whisk together the butter,sugar until they turns smooth.
Add vanilla extract to the whisked sugar butter mixture. Whisk it again ,till it is combined.
Take the semi sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe cup. Melt it ,till it becomes smooth. It took me around 45 sec for this 1/4 cup of chocolate to melt.
Add in the melted chocolate,vanilla extract and give a quick stir.
Now add all the dry ingredients. With the chocolate chips also.
Once they are baked for 5 minutes, trun them around and again bake for 5 more minutes. Cool the biscottis on wire rack and store in air tight containers.
