Biscotti Gone Bananas
Yield: about 22 slices Prep 10 mins Bake 350°F 30 mins to 46 mins


  • 1 package (13.9 oz.) banana bread mix
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries, finely chopped

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl stir together the mix, water, eggs, and oil until combined. Stir in cherries. Divide dough in half. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, shape each half of dough into an 8x 1-3/4-inch log (use wet hands if dough is sticky). Bake for 30 minutes until logs are browned. Cool on cookie sheet on a wire rack.

2. When cool, use a serrated knife to cut 1/2-inch thick diagonal slices. Arrange slices, cut sides down, on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the 350 degrees F oven for 8 to 10 minutes more per side or until browned and crisp. Cool on a wire rack. Store in a container for up to a week. Makes about 22 slices.
