Makes 24 biscotti

kikkoman products used:


1-2/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup semolina flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Generous pinch sea salt
Scant pinch ground cinnamon
1/3 cup hempseed or light olive oil
1/2 cup brown rice syrup or honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 to 3 teaspoons Pearl Creamy Vanilla Organic Soymilk
1/2 cup slivered almonds

1 cup non-dairy, grain-sweetened chocolate chips
2 teaspoons brown rice syrup
1/4 cup Pearl Creamy Vanilla Organic Soymilk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Whisk together flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix in oil, rice syrup and vanilla, stirring to combine. Slowly add soymilk to create a soft, pliable dough. Knead 2-3 times to hold batter together. Fold in almonds to incorporate them into the dough. Divide dough in half and, with moist hands, form each half into a long log about 10 inches long and 2 inches wide.
  3. Bake until the top of each log is firm, 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand, on the baking sheet for 2 minutes.
  4. Carefully transfer each log to a dry cutting board, and using a sharp, serrated knife, slice each long into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Lay the slices, cut-side up on the baking sheet and bake for 3 minutes. Turn the slices so the other cut side is up and bake for 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet.
  5. Once the biscotti have cooled completely, make the ganache. Place the chocolate chips in a heat-resistant bowl. Combine rice syrup and soymilk in a small saucepan and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Pour over chocolate and whisk to form a smooth shiny ganache.
  6. Dip one half of each biscotti and place on parchment. Allow to stand until glaze sets. You can also place the ganache in a squeeze bottle and drizzle chocolate over each cookie.

    Note: Hempseed oil is high in an albumin-like protein (like eggs) and helps to prevent the biscotti from crumbling when slicing.

Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
