What is Biscoff?
Biscoff is a cookie butter spread made from caramelized cookies (like Speculoos) that are blended until they're creamy and spreadable. It's sweet, a bit nutty, and has a pleasant caramel-like flavor.
In other words, it's basically spreadable cookies. It's a popular alternative to peanut butter, Nutella, or other chocolate spreads.
You can make homemade Biscoff, but if you haven't tried the real thing, please try it at least once!
Ingredients You'll Need
- Rolled oats: Make sure to use old-fashioned oats for the best results. They have a chewy texture and absorb the liquid well.
- Chia seeds: Not only are they good for you, providing healthy fats and fiber, but they also help thicken the overnight oats.
- Milk of choice: I'm using soy milk here, but you can also use regular milk, almond milk, oat milk, etc.
- Biscoff cookie spread: Adds sweetness, creaminess, and a caramel-like flavor. You can add as much or as little Biscoff as you want.
- Vanilla extract (optional): A touch of pure vanilla extract gives flavor and aroma, but it's completely optional.
- Pinch of salt (optional): A tiny pinch of sea salt helps enhance the rest of the flavors in this recipe.

How to Make Biscoff Overnight Oats
You can also add the ingredients in a mason jar if you need to grab it for an on-the-go breakfast the next morning.
Using a spoon or a spatula, give everything a good stir. Cover with a lid or a clean kitchen towel and let the oats soak for at least 2 hours or overnight in the fridge.
Hint: If the Biscoff spread is too thick, add it to a small bowl and melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Your Biscoff overnight oats are ready when the mixture has thickened and has a pudding-like texture.
At this point, you can adjust the consistency if needed, adding a tablespoon of milk if you need to thin it out.
Serve with more melted cookie butter on top and any additional toppings.
This adds another layer of flavor and sweetness that I really enjoy and would highly recommend.
- Use rolled oats. I always recommend using old-fashioned rolled oats when making Biscoff overnight oats. Quick oats or instant oats will get too soft and mushy, and steel-cut oats won't soften at all. This recipe has the perfect ratio between oats and liquid so that you're left with soft, chewy, and thick overnight oats.
- Give the oats enough time to soften. Ideally, you'd want to let the oats soak in the liquid overnight, but if you don't have the time, you want to give them at least 2-3 hours to thicken.
- Make a big batch! This recipe is great for meal prep so you can make a big batch on Sunday and have breakfast ready during the week.
- Make individual portions in mason jars. This is a life-saver for busy people. You won't have to do any prep in the morning, just grab your jar and take it on the go with you!
Biscoff spread is high in refined sugars and added fat, and is not considered a healthy food. Having said that, it's delicious and enjoyable to eat, so consume it in moderation or combined with high-fiber foods (like whole grains or fruits) or protein (like yogurt, nuts, and seeds). This will help prevent blood sugar spikes.
Yes, Biscoff is naturally vegan and dairy-free, it doesn't contain any animal products.
Yes! Some people are not a fan of cold oatmeal, and I get it! You can warm these Biscoff overnight oats in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, or on the stovetop until warmed through.
You can make this recipe 4-5 days in advance, especially if you're using non-dairy milk, which lasts longer than regular cow's milk.
- Chia seeds: To replace them use the same amount of flaxseed meal instead. You can also make these Biscoff overnight oats without chia seeds by simply omitting them. Keep in mind that you'll need to use less liquid since they help thicken the mixture.
- Milk: Just like in my overnight oats without milk, you can replace the milk with water and add a few tablespoons of Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt instead.
- Biscoff: You can use another cookie butter instead, or substitute it with sweetened peanut butter or almond butter.
- Make it gluten-free: Use Trader Joe's gluten-free cookie butter or make your own gluten-free Biscoff spread. You'll also need to use gluten-free certified oats.
Here are some fun ways you can customize your Biscoff overnight oats!
- Maple syrup or brown sugar: You can add as much or as little as you want to sweeten to taste.
- Vanilla protein powder: Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to make this recipe more satisfying and filling.
- Cacao powder: If you're a chocolate lover add 1-2 teaspoons of cacao powder for a rich chocolaty flavor. I recommend using Dutch-processed cocoa powder.
- Spices: Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, or cardamom are all great choices that will add warmth and flavor.
- Applesauce: Add ¼ cup of unsweetened applesauce to add natural sweetness and a fruity flavor.
- Mashed banana: Use a ripe banana and mash it with a fork, then add to your oatmeal and stir. Again, it will add natural sweetness, as well as flavor.
- Coffee shot: If you love coffee, you have to try adding it to your oats! It adds depth of flavor and a great kick. You can use cold brew, espresso shot, or granulated coffee that you can dissolve in some milk or water
- Chocolate chips: Add a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips for some crunch and a pop of flavor.
Toppings are a great way to boost the nutritional value of this recipe, as well as add some different textures and flavors.
- Fresh fruits: Any of your favorite fruits such as sliced bananas, berries, chopped apples, etc.
- Dried fruits: My favorites include dark raisins, cranberries, dried figs, and cherries.
- Chopped nuts or nut butter: This recipe is delicious topped with chopped toasted pecans, almonds, or cashews.
- Seeds: To add healthy fats and protein, sprinkle some hemp seeds or pumpkin seeds on top.
- Crushed cookies: I love adding crushed lotus Biscoff cookies right before serving these overnight oats.
- Whipped cream: A dollop of coconut whipped cream never hurt anybody, right?
- Coconut flakes: Sprinkle toasted coconut flakes for a fun and delicious topping.
