No-Bake Biscoff Cookies

As I mentioned before, I’m taking a little vacation from blogging – don’t worry, I’ll be back! – but in the meantime, some of my favorite bloggers are stepping in to take the reins while I’m away. Today Michelle from Brown Eyed Baker is here, another fabulous baking blogger (though she cooks as well!) who I also have a lot in common with outside of blogging, as she mentions below. To me, her site is like a well-worn cookbook; a collection of delicious tried-and-true recipes from her kitchen to yours. Thank you Michelle for guest posting today!

Last March when I went on vacation Tracy was one of my wonderful food blogging friends who contributed a guest post to the site while I was away (remember her awesome Baked Doughnuts with Cinnamon Sugar?), so I of course jumped at the opportunity to do the same for her while she’s enjoying some time away from Internet land. Aside from us both having rambunctious Golden Retriever children and loving football so much that we coordinated an all-girl food blogger fantasy football league this past season, I also feel a kinship with Tracy in that she has to deal with peanut and nut allergies. As someone who had to worry about that for five years, I know that it’s definitely not any fun. As a result, I wanted to modify one of my favorite peanut butter recipes (No-Bake Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Cookies) so that Tracy could enjoy them too. I came up with No-Bake Biscoff Cookies using Biscoff spread – a new favorite of mine!

I seem to be a little late to the Biscoff party and was just introduced to it last month while touring the grand opening of a new local grocery store. They were offering it (as well as Nutella) along with Magic Pop, which they were making fresh in the store, and which were also new to me. They are a combination of a rice cake and a popcorn flavor, they are 15 calories and totally addictive, especially when slathered with Biscoff spread, as I soon found out. I’ve had a jar in the pantry ever since and was excited to use it in a new recipe, one that was free of any nuts and that I hope Tracy enjoys!

Yield: About 2 dozen cookies
Prep Time: 15 minutes

  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup Biscoff spread
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats

Add the sugar, milk, butter and salt to a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil, without stirring, for 1 full minute. Remove from heat. Stir in the Biscoff spread and vanilla until smooth, then fold in the oats. Drop by heaping tablespoons (or use a medium cookie scoop) onto wax paper-lined baking sheets. Let cool until set.

    Hmmm. No nuts at all? I’ve never seen Biscoff spread. What is it flavored with? We have peanut/tree nut allergies too.

    No-bake cookies are such a nostalgic indulgence – love that you’ve “modernized” them with Biscoff spread!

    This is awesome! I have a jar of Biscoff sitting in my cabinet just waiting to be turned into something delicious like this. :)

    No idea what biscoff is or where could I find it in Spain… I’ll have to do some research but they do look fantastic!

    I’ve seen Biscoff cookies before, but I’ve never eaten them. Now I see biscoff spread popping up everywhere. I need to try biscoff as well as join the Nutella bandwagon. :-) Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Just one thing to keep in mind about Biscoff…it is packed in a facility that also processes tree nut products. I was very excited about it until I read that. Maybe I’m just super freaky about my allergy.

    Biscoff Spread is available in your grocery stores. I live in Des Moines, Iowa and can find it everywhere. It will either be by the peanut butter or sometimes by the speciality cookie isle. Usually right by the Biscoff packaged cookies. Biscoff cookies are a caramilzed biscuit similar to sepculoos. They originated in Belgium.

    Trader Joe’s offers a Speculoos Cookie Butter for $3 a jar. It spreads like peanut butter, but tastes like Anna’s ginger thins. It’s pretty close to Biscoff, which I’ve only seen in one store around here.

    One more reason to be excited that Trader Joe’s is restocking their cookie butter!

    Barbara and Marianne – Biscoff spread is peanut and nut-free, and it’s a sweet spread that tastes looks like peanut butter but tastes just like cinnamon-sugar Biscoff cookies. It’s wonderful stuff! :-)

    David – I have seen the Trader Joe’s cookie butter as well; unfortunately the label says that it may contain traces of tree nuts, milk, and eggs.

    What a great guest post, Michelle! I bet these little fellas taste ridiculously good. Love that they’re no bake! We’ve got to get another jar of Biscoff around here. I brought one with me from NJ, and the sister, niece and nephew finished it in record time.

    We have nut allergies here too, and Biscoff is SO good! Unfortunately, the closest store to me that carries it is an hour away…so I have to stock up when I find it! I’ll be making these when I replenish my stash ;) I’ll probably throw some chocolate in there too!

    These look awesome and I made some nobake cookie-butter spread cookies in December. I love Biscoff in anything!

    Any idea how long these last? And do they need refrigeration?

    For those unfamiliar with Bischoff, if you have flown Delta Airlines then you most likely had “Bischoff Cookies”, I loved them so much I saved the wrapper and found out how to buy them and the “new” spread.

    Sorry that should have been “biscoff” not bischoff.

    I’m still waiting for Biscoff to make it to my town…it sounds totally fabulous, and these cookies look great! Thanks for posting; I’m adding these to my “must make when I finally get some Biscoff” list! :-)

    LOVED this post! Can’t wait to try these. Also – just curious if you’ve made these with the cocoa added and only change to the original no bake cookies (aka “oatmeal fudgies” in my family) being the replacing of peanut butter with biscoff spread. I may have to try that just to see how they turn out. I know my local grocery store sold biscoff cookies dipped in dark chocolate on a platter around the holidays so I’m going to assume (until I try it) that biscoff and chocolate are a good combo. Thanks again for a great new recipe!

    This cookie has got to be sinfully delicious!!!!!!!!!!
    The only thing I have done with my “Biscoff Spread” is to use a spoon and eat it out of the jar!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Also found at our large supermarket, they had the “Crunchy!”.
    And I bought it too!!!!!
    Yum, is the word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I LOVE Biscoff, I am one of the Stylists for the holiday catalogs and have lots of jars of the stuff. Thanks for the recipe, we are always looking for something to do with it. Our Fave is nutella and Biscoff spread in bread warmed in a pan!!

    How funny – I just found this post – and am literally scooping biscoff out of the jar with my finger… to lazy to go get a spoon…. I found my jar at World Market – but have since seen it at a large grocery store in the peanut butter section (waiting to find the crunchy one)… SUPER excited to make these!!! Thanks for the recipe! :)

    In parts of Europe (and quite possibly the UK) something similar to this is sold called Speculoos spread (or paste or pasta).

  36. 36 Nani A Says:

    Amazon carries this wonderful spread along with the cookies.

  37. 37 Missy G Says:

    Made this recipe today exactly as written but it was way too sweet for me. I added 1/2 teaspoon of salt before scooping the cookies out of the saucepan and, for me, that was the ticket. Thanks to Michelle for a great idea!

  38. 38 Kim Says:
    May 6th, 2012 at 6:27 am

    I just finished making this recipe and letting it cool..wow it’s so oily!! I guess it’s from the butter and Biscoff spread. Also, Missy G was right, it’s too sweet (and I LOOOOVE anything sweet!) so for me to say this then it really is too sweet, even when I added a little bit more salt. Note to self & maybe to others: cut down a little on the butter and sugar. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to making these again…with maybe a little more Biscoff coz this stuff is absolutely YUMMY!!! ;)

    If you also stay in a country where you cannot buy Biscoff spread than do it yourself.
    After a long searching I found a receipe.

    I love these cookies. I make the “normal” no-bake cookies often, but this spin on them is delicious.

    For those having trouble finding Biscoff, I can always find it at Walmart in the peanut butter section.
