Today we’re talking about Biscoff Spread. I’ve been an avid fan of Biscoff Cookies since the moment I tried them years ago on a flight to California and have affectionately referred to them as airplane cookies ever since.
More recently, I’ve acquired quite an affinity for Biscoff Spread. How could something made from original Biscoff Cookies not be utterly amazing? Whether it be creamy or crunchy, I’ll happily spread it on just about anything. It’s perfect on toast, fruit and graham crackers – seriously, try it on s’mores. And if you’re feeling a little bit naughty, go ahead and dip your spoon directly into the jar – I won’t tell anyone!
Honestly, I find myself reaching for the jar of Biscoff Spread more than I do the peanut butter. And if you’ve read MBA for any length of time, you know that I am quite the peanut butter addict.
Not only is Biscoff spread incredibly delicious and versatile, it’s made with all-natural ingredients, it contains no artificial color or preservatives, it has 0 grams trans fat per serving and 0 cholesterol, contains non-GMO ingredients and it’s nut-free.
When deciding on a recipe to create using Biscoff Spread, I decided to hit my archives for a little inspiration. Last summer I made No-Bake Biscoff Cheesecake which was seriously mind blowing and I’ve also sandwiched Biscoff Sread between Spiced Linzer Cookies – which were equally as amazing.
This time, I was inspired by back to school snacks and thought I’d whip together Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies with a creamy Biscoff filling. They’re simple and perfect for stashing in lunchboxes or served with an ice cold glass of milk after a long day of hitting the books!
