What is Biscoff?
Biscoff cookies are crunchy rectangular biscuits made by a Belgian company Lotus. In the Netherlands this type of cookies is called speculoos. They are loved for their gingerbread-like, carmelized flavor and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside texture.
Biscoff cookie butter is a jarred version of Lotus Biscoff cookies also known as the Biscoff spread. Think of it like peanut butter made with cookies instead of nuts. It may sound unusual but it's absolutely delicious, especially with apple slices or on top of yogurt.
- Rolled Oats: old fashioned rolled oats will work best. If you are sensitive to gluten, check the label for 100% certified gluten free oats.
- Plant Milk: any unsweetened plant milk will be great for this recipe: almond, soy, oat, coconut or hemp. My favorite plant milk lately has been organic unsweetened soy milk by Silk. Dairy milk will also work!
- Ground Flaxseed: gold or brown flaxseed are both good. Make sure your ground flaxseed is fresh – it goes rancid quickly.
- Cinnamon: ground cinnamon enhances the Biscoff flavor! It’s also a great, super healthy, natural supplement full of antioxidants.
- Biscoff Cookie Butter: it’s basically Lotus Biscoff Cookies crushed and turned into a spread. Beware – it’s dangerously addictive!
How to make Biscoff overnight oats
Overnight Oats require very minimal prep and literally take less than 5 minutes to put together.
STEP 1: Place your oats, plant milk, ground flaxseed, cinnamon and Biscoff spread in a mason jar or airtight container with a lid.
STEP 2: Stir well until combined. Pop a lid on.
STEP 3: Place in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.
STEP 4: Top with your favorite fruit, nuts and seeds and serve!
My rule of life is that toppings are the most fun part of any meal! You can obviously enjoy Biscoff overnight oats on their own but there are many ways to make them more interesting and enjoyable. Here are some toppings suggestions for you:
- Fresh fruit, such as berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries), banana slices, peaches or nectarines, apples and pears.
- Chopped nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, pecans or peanuts.
- Seeds such as pepitas, flax or chia seeds.
- Dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries, cherries, blueberries, apricots or dates.
- Crushed Biscoff cookies or a drizzle of Biscoff cookie butter (warm it up in the microwave for 10 seconds to make it pourable) or any nut butter you like.
- Chocolate chips - mini dark chocolate chips will work wonderfully!
Old fashioned rolled oats work best for overnight oats in my opinion because they have a more substantial texture. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t use quick oats. If you do use them, the texture of your overnight oats will be creamier and less substantial.
No. Steel cut oats won’t soften enough just by soaking them. They would require some cooking time in advance.
Yes! If cold overnight oats are unappealing to you or if you just like to start your day with a hot breakfast, feel free to heat them up in the microwave or on the stove.
You can store them up to 5 days in a jar or airtight container, as long as there is not any fresh fruit mixed in. Just top it with berries or banana right before serving!
Most large chain grocery stores carry Biscoff Cookie Butter these days. I’ve also seen it at Walmart if you have one nearby. Look for it near peanut butter, Nutella and jelly. Trader Joe’s carries its own brand of cookie butter. You can also always get it on Amazon.
Typically yes. They are made from oats and contain no wheat. However, rolled oats may be processed at a facility that also processed wheat products. If you are allergic or sensitive to gluten, check the label and make sure it says “certified gluten free”.
No. Biscoff cookies are made with wheat flour and the spread is basically pureed cookies turned into cookie butter.
Yes! This recipe uses no dairy so it's perfect for a plant-based diet.
