Preheat the oven to 375F [185].
Line a cookie sheet with parchment.

Blend the flours, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl.
Melt the butter and set it aside to cool.

In a large bowl, whip two eggs, one additional egg yolk, and the sugar until smooth. Reserve the extra egg white.

Add the coconut, nuts and vanilla. 
Add the butter and mix until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients and mix to a smooth dough.

Roll the dough into two 14-inch-long logs and place them on the lined cookie sheet.
Press the tops of the logs to flatten them slightly; brush them with the reserved egg white.
Bake until the logs are light brown but still give slightly when the tops are pressed, about 30 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and reduce the temperature to 325F [165].

 While the logs are still warm, cut them into -inch slices; cut on a slight diagonal, not straight across.
Lay the slices on their sides, spreading them apart, and return the sheet to the oven.
Bake until the cookies are brown, about 15 minutes.
Cool completely on wire racks, then store biscotti in an airtight container.
