    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
    2. Combine vanilla extract and espresso powder in a small bowl; mix until espresso powder is dissolved.
    3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a bowl; mix in chocolate chips.
    4. Whisk vanilla mixture, sugar, eggs and oil together in a large bowl. Add flour mixture; stir, by hand if needed, until dough comes together and is thick and stiff.
    5. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces and place onto the baking trays. Shape each piece into a log (the same length as the baking tray); press down with wet hands to about 1cm thickness.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes.
    7. Move cooled biscotti logs to a cutting board and cut into slices with a serrated knife. Return the slices to the baking trays, placing them on their sides.
    8. Bake until dry, about 6 minutes per side. Remove from oven and let cool until hardened on wire racks.
