Gluten Free Low Glycemic Honey & Spice Greek Biscotti

Save money and have fun making your own Gluten Free Biscotti!! I love so many things about biscotti.  It lasts longer than other cookies, it works really well with gluten-free flours, it's crunchy and satisfying and it has almost no fat!  I made up this recipe today because I was in the mood for the flavors of baklava without all the calories and it really hit the spot.  The orange, honey, cinnamon and walnuts flavors are wonderful. Absolutely wonderful dunked in my latte!  I hope you enjoy  xx
