Vegan Pumpkin Spice Biscotti

Pin it to save it for later ! 

Vegan Pumpkin Spiced Biscotti, I bet you won't be able to resist them. Traditional biscotti with an autumnal flavour that can last for weeks ( not likely to happen in my house ). These pumpkin biscotti are loaded with spices, studded with toasted almonds and plenty of pumpkin flavours. They are perfect accompanied with your pumpkin-themed coffee.


We love pumpkin, but I rarely use in baking but this time I had a perfect occasion or an excuse. My mum brought a different kind of squash and pumpkin, from PYO farm.  We ate them roasted, simmered delicious curry with it and enjoyed in Moroccan vegetarian Tagine.
