Notes

Generally All Purpose Flour or Maida is used to make Biscotti.Since I now use Whole Wheat Flour or other fibrous flours in my baking, I skip maida totally. I add some portion of Almond Flour, so that Whole Wheat Biscotti is not too hard, as kids do not like very hard biscotti. You can also use APF or 50:50 ratio of both the flour. You can also skip Almond flour if it is not available , add the same amount of the whole wheat flour.
Pls. Note .. Whole Wheat flour absorbs more liquid than All Purpose flour. So add milk accordingly with tbsp as required.
