Chocolate Biscotti (whole wheat)

Makes ~25 plain chocolate biscottis.

In a large bowl, fluff together:

- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup agave syrup

then add, one ingredient a time, mixing well after each one:

- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 medium eggs (whole)
- 1 & 3/4 cup whole wheat flour whisked with 1 tsp magic powder

Transfer the dough on a floured surface and divide it in two.

With floured hands (dough is pretty sticky), roll each half into a cylinder, about 10 in (25 cm) long.

Transfer the logs to a parchment lined cookie sheet, spacing them well apart - the cylinders will spread during baking).

Cook for 25-30 minutes in the preheated oven at 350 F (177 C).

Then remove from the oven (should be firm at touch) and cool for 5-10 minutes.

Transfer both logs on a cutting board and and cut the logs into ~ 12 slices each, on the diagonal.

Transfer the slices face up on the parchment lined baking sheet and bake for another 7-8 minutes. Turn the slices over and bake another 6-8 minutes, until crisp.
