Recipe for bread substitute:

The secret of the pleasant fragrance of our “Biscotti Della Salute” consists in the double and slow rising of the dough. In fact, these are not simply toasted slices, but the doe, while still soft, is left to rest and then cut.

The slices are then toasted in order to obtain the golden color and the typical crumbly and light consistency. Still prepared according to the original recipe based on wheat flour, butter, eggs (from free-range hens), sugar, fresh yeast, and salt, but above all without preservatives, glucose syrup, or coloring.

The detail that makes the texture of these cookies even more tasty and pleasant is the thickness of about 1 cm and a half.

Ingredients for about 30 “Biscotti Della Salute”:

400 g Flour 00

150 gSugar

Olive Oil EVO

Barley malt extract

Sourdough Grondona

One egg yolk

1 pinch of salt


Dilute the yeast in warm water and half of the sugar and mix it with a little flour in a small bowl.

Cover it and let it rise for about one hour.

After this time, put the dough in a bowl together with the rest of the sugar, the rest of the 00 flour, the milk, the softened butter, the pinch of salt and knead vigorously for 10 minutes.

Knead until the dough is smooth and homogeneous then cover it with a cloth and let it rise for about 2 hours.

Take the dough and deflate it with your hands then create two loaves that you will put on a sheet of baking paper on a pan.

Cover the loaves and let them rise for about 1 hour more, then bake them for 30 minutes in a preheated static oven at 160°.

Remove the strands from the oven and let them cool completely then cut them into diagonal slices (not like me who cut them normally) and put them back in the oven to bake for 10 minutes or depending on the level you prefer.

Some people really like bread substitutes slightly burnt, but 10 minutes of baking is generally enough.

They keep good for up to a week sealed in a tin box tightly, store at room temperature.
