Read the recipe from start to finish.
- All-purpose flour: gives the right amount of tenderness to the blondies (not too dense and not too cakey).
- Baking powder & baking soda: add a bit of lift to the blondies.
- Salt: enhances the sweetness of the blondies.
- Butter: creates chewy, rich blondies. Always use unsalted.
- Light brown sugar: adds sweetness and creates a chewy texture.
- Biscoff spread: adds a deliciously rich, spicy, and deep caramel flavor.
- Eggs: adds moisture and richness.
- Vanilla: always use PURE vanilla extract for the best flavor.
- Chocolate chips: you can also use a chopped chocolate bar.
- Biscoff cookies: crushed cookies add the same delicious flavor as the biscoff spread with the addition of a crunchy texture.
How to Make This Recipe
- Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugar.
- Add the Biscoff spread to the butter and mix until combined. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
- Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread evenly into a parchment-lined 8x8-inch baking pan.
- Gently press the crushed cookies into the batter.
- Bake biscoff cookie bars in a preheated 350°F/177°C oven for 25-28 minutes.
Note: Allow these lotus biscoff blondies to cool completely before slicing. You can even chill the blondies in the refrigerator to allow the butter to firm more quickly. This will allow the blondies to hold their shape when you slice them.
Substitutions and Flavor Variations
Although I love these lotus blondies just the way they are, you should make them to satisfy your preferences. Here are some ideas for variations:
- Substitute peanut butter for the biscoff spread. It pairs nicely with the chocolate chips.
- Instead of chocolate chips use white chocolate chips and add chopped toasted macadamia nuts.
- If you can’t find Biscoff cookies, substitute them with gingersnap cookies. They add a lovely spiced flavor alternative to this biscoff blondies recipe.
How to Store
Keep these Biscoff bars stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature or refrigerated for up to 1 week.
To freeze, wrap with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store in a resealable freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months and thaw in the refrigerator overnight and enjoy.
Yes! They are one and the same. This biscoff recipe is interchangeable with speculoos spread and cookie butter.
Yes, you can use brown butter. Just make sure to measure the butter after it is browned because some of the liquid evaporates while it boils.
Absolutely! You can double the recipe and use a 9x13-inch baking pan. Check on the Biscoff bars after 23-25 minutes for doneness.
Your kitchen will begin to smell sweet and buttery, and the blondies will begin to pull away from the sides of the pan. Insert a toothpick into the center of the blondies, and if there are a few moist crumbs on the toothpick, they’re ready (a clean toothpick means it’s overbaked!).
Baking Success Tips & Takeaways
- Measuring ingredients by weight is always preferred for accuracy! If using standard cup measurements, make sure to spoon your flour into the measuring cup and level it with a knife. Do not pack it in or scoop it with the measuring cup (this will result in too much flour).
- Do not overmix the batter for these cookie butter blondies. Overmixing the batter will result in dense blondies.
- Use crunchy or smooth Biscoff spread. Either one works for this Biscoff blondie recipe. Use whatever you have on hand and prefer!
