The addition of almonds gives this keto biscotti recipe an added crunch and flavor not found in most low-carb cookies and desserts. The main ingredients include almond flour, eggs, heavy cream, baking powder, butter, and sea salt.

The Origin of the Keto Biscotti Recipe

I created my Keto almond biscotti recipe out of sheer necessity. I have been a Type I diabetic for over 20 years and have always worked hard to be as healthy as possible. My main form of exercise is cycling. When I was having my insulin pump removed to switch over to an artificial pancreas (which will be covered in another post), eating carbs became impossible without knowing my glucose levels beforehand. It wasn't too bad at first, but it took a toll on me after eight weeks. One day, while wandering around Target, I looked at new recipes online and saw keto biscotti recipes and decided that would be a great treat for me to enjoy in between meals during race season.

How to Properly Store Bread & Rolls

What's the best way to keep Bread & Rolls fresh?

Bread should be kept at room temperature in a dark, dry, cold place like a cupboard, drawer, or bread box. We also suggest that you keep our bread packed in its original packaging to help it maintain moisture. Wrap the bread in plastic wrap or aluminum foil if you don't have the original container.

Store bread away from heat-generating or light-emitting equipment like microwaves and refrigerators. Because of the heat from these machines, the bread may dry up faster or moisture may form within the bag, causing the bread to mold.

How to Freeze & Store Bread & Rolls Properly

Start with a basic inquiry when it's time to freeze bread: Will you be storing bread for a few weeks or a little longer? It's then simple to prepare the bread for storage.

How to keep bread that will be consumed within three weeks:

  • Freeze store-bought bread straight away. 
  • Use plastic wrap, such as Glad® Press'n Seal®, to firmly wrap handmade bread. After that, put it in the freezer.
  • Place rolls and buns in a plastic bag, such as Glad® FLEX'N SEAL Gallon Bags, before freezing.
