Crunchy, flavorful, and delicious… That is how I would describe these dairy-free gingerbread biscottis. My mom wanted to make these because she LOVES biscottis. However, neither of us had any experience making biscottis, so she found this recipe from All Recipes that I altered slightly. It is dairy-free by nature, but these biscottis have THE BEST flavor and texture.
Biscottis are best paired with coffee, hot chocolate, tea, or any other hot drink. I love to dip them in the hot drink in order to soften them before eating. My personal favorite is dipping them in an oat milk latte… Yum!! Recipe below… Highly recommend trying these!!

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Romans 12:12 NIV
Joyful. Patient. Faithful. Three things I want to be regardless of my circumstances. I encourage you to think about this verse. Reflect on it. Is it convicting or encouraging to you? Maybe both? It is such a short verse, but it is SO important.
Personally, God calling me to be patient in affliction is convicting. It is so difficult to not just wish and pray away a difficult season. However, we are encouraged to be patient in these seasons and trust that God will deliver us from it. There is glory to be revealed. Trust in Him always!!
