The biscotti recipe was suggested by +Priya akka in Home Baker’s Challenge - HBC. She had given different varieties of biscotti and I chosen Egg less Oats Chocolate Biscotti. For past few HBC’s I couldn't make, so I do not wish to miss this month. I followed the exact method but I baked half quantity and used Nutella in place of melted chocolate. It was come out well.
Biscotti is the plural form of biscotto. The word originates from the latin word biscoctus, meaning "twice-cooked/baked". It defined oven baked goods that were twice, so they were very dry and could be stored for long periods of time (Wiki).
