Chocolate-Cherry Biscotti

Chocolate-Cherry Biscotti
(Supposedly makes 40 biscotti, but I got around 30)

These are amazing. The chocolate and cherry flavors pair together wonderfully.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour (or another cup of white if whole wheat bothers you)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup Egg Beaters or 6 egg whites
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
2/3 cup dried tart cherries
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Make sure they're dairy-free)
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours and salt in a bowl; stir well with a whisk.
Beat sugar and eggs with a mixer at high speed until thick and pale (about 4 minutes). Add oil and extracts, beating until well-blended. Add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until blended (I had to resort to a wooden spoon because it was too thick). Stir in cherries and chocolate chips.
Divide dough in half; turn out onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Shape each portion into a 10-inch-long roll, and flatten to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove rolls from the baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Reduce oven temperature to 325°.
Cut each roll diagonally into 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 10 minutes. Turn cookies over, and bake an additional 10 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; cool completely on wire rack.
