Bourbon Vanilla Fig Biscotti

Bourbon Vanilla Fig Biscotti 

What can I say? My sweet tooth has been going strong lately! But, I am making sure to satisfy those cravings in a healthy way with desserts like these simply and sweet Bourbon Vanilla Fig Biscotti! Served with a big cup of coffee? Absolutely!

Better Body Foods came up with a brilliant idea! Why not create a product that is a blend of almond flour and coconut flour? This would keep the cost down and make working with coconut flour easier! But the big question is, “What’s the best ratio?” After doing some digging around in past recipes, the trend for me seemed to be 1/3 cup almond flour to 1 tbs coconut flour.

But to take it one step further, Better Body Foods created a challenge! A challenge in which you can win some amazing prizes! The challenge is called, “Blend A BetterBody Food” and the goal…..to create a recipe that combines the low cost of coconut flour with the moistening effects of almond flour to find the perfect blend that is great for both the wallet and the oven!

The best part? The winning prize! You could have your recipe featured on the Better Body Foods package, win ahttps://ingredientsofafitchick.comc Blender and a $100 gift card to Walmart!

So, now I know you are wondering how the heck you can enter for a chance to win all of that?! I know I was! The contest will run from today, October 7th through November 4th 2015.  All you have to do is create a recipe using a coconut flour/almond flour blend, share your recipe and flour ratio on social media using the hashtags #BetterBodyBlend #BetterBodyFoods and tagging @BetterBodyFoods and @FitChick428!

That’s it! It’s a double win because you not only get to eat your delicious creation, but you could also possibly win this amazing prize pack! Plus, if you get your friends involved and they tag you on social media too, then you both could win!

So, what are you waiting for? Head to the kitchen (after you check out my delicious recipe below!) and start your own tasty entry! I have included the rules below, just in case you missed something! Or you can head HERE!

Also, check out the other amazing products Better Body Foods has! I used their coconut flourextra virgin coconut oilagave and bourbon vanilla in this recipe! They have a new superfood called LIVFIT SuperFood, which I am dying to try! Can’t you just image that in some smoothies!

Ok, good luck! And don’t forget, if you need a recipe taste tester, I am available!
