This is a slightly healthier version of crunchy chocolate biscotti. These are delicious with a mug of hot coffee or tea.
* 3 egg whites
* 1/3 c. vegetable oil
* 2 T strong brewed coffee
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 1 2/3 c. all-purpose flour

* 1 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp. baking soda
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1/3 c. hazelnuts or other nuts, chopped and toasted
* 1/3 c. dried tart cherries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease large cookie sheet.
In a bowl beat together egg whites, oil, coffee, and vanilla until well incorporated.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Pour egg mixture onto dry ingredients and stir well until thoroughly mixed, add hazelnuts and cherries, incorporate.
Shape mixture into two 12" by 1" logs; place both on cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes.
Gently transfer each log to a cutting board and Slice diagonally into scant 1/2-inch-thick biscotti. Arrange biscotti, cut side up, on cookie sheets.
