I wonder if poly d would work? I have seen biscotti recipes without the special ingredients (I think!! ) I will try to find some for you. I love biscotti too!! Maybe some xanthan gum would work? I am not really sure what the not sugar does?!!

Here is a recipe I found on Comfy Belly:

You can sub the honey for a AS of choice and leave out the fruit if it is too carby for you...

Basic Biscotti
Ingredients

2 large eggs
3/4 cup of honey
8 tablespoons of butter, softened (1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3 1/2 cups of almond flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of anise seeds (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of almond extract (optional)
dried fruit, seeds, nuts or other fun stuff (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of orange or lemon zest (optional; great with dried fruits and nuts)
Method
Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F.
In a bowl, add the butter, honey, eggs, and vanilla, and beat until well blended.
In a separate bowl, add all the dry ingredients and mix until well blended.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix again until well blended.
Mold the mixture into two balls of dough. Place each ball of dough on oiled, buttered, or lightly stick-free cookie sheet. Shape each ball of dough into a low, flat log. It will expand and rise somewhat, so account for a small amount of growth. Pack down the dough to remove air pockets. Alternatively, you can pack the dough in a tart pan with the dimensions you want your biscotti to have when finished.
Bake the logs for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and cake-like. Take the logs out of the oven and reduce the temperature to 275 degrees F.
Cool the logs for about 10 minutes and then slice each log into thin strips about 1/2 inch in thickness. Place the slices on their side on the cookie sheet, and then bake for about 15 minutes, or until they are fully crisped.
Enjoy!

Sub either guar, xanthan, or glucomannan powder. Use 1/3 the amount. For his biscotti recipe, use 1 teaspoon of whichever one you choose.
