Oh creamy cookie spread, how do I love thee?
Let me count the ways…
It’s true…I have
a crush an addiction.
And after Missy, one of my favorite readers, sent me a link to these, it grew to a full on obsession. To say I dreamt of fluffy stacks of Biscoff filled pancakes is an understatement. But c’mon, one egg for four servings? Clearly, this recipe needed some adjustments! 😉

Janetha was RIGHT when she said this stuff is like crack!
If any of you psych majors need any understanding Pavlov’s Theory, just open up a jar of this stuff in front of me! 😉 Seriously, you guys may need to stage in intervention. I’ve had this jar for a week and it’s already half empty…or is it half full?
What is your newest obsession, food or otherwise?
What’s the best thing from your weekend?
I sat around dreaming about pancakes all weekend…let me live vicariously through you!
I have been obsessed with pumpkin just because of seeing amazing creations with it all over blogs!
These look amazing, you always make the BEST Pancakes! I think you should have a pancake sunday party and invite me over : )
Happy almost Monday! xoxo <3
Girl, you should know your breakfast invitation is always open! Love you!
oh my goodness yum. I am so intrigued by that spread…and am now dying for pancakes topped with fresh figs! mmmm. love your tradition of Sunday pancakes.
You know, I’ve never really been a huge fan of fresh figs, but I am definitely addicted to the dried ones! Hope school is going well for you Kelsey! Miss you!
latest food obsession = kabocha & sweet potatoes. And I love speculoos, but i’ve actually never had the Biscoff brand. There’s an authentic belgian wafel truck here in NYC that makes their own speculoos, and oh man, is it good. I kind of want try to figure out how to make a creamy cookie spread!
Well, if you have any access to crack, I’m pretty sure it’s one of the main ingredients…so that’s where I would start! 😉 I’m pretty sure the speculoos and the biscoff is the same, but I may be wrong. And now you have me wanting to melt it and drizzle it over kabocha and sweet potatoes! Ahhh!
Ha!! I KNEW they would show up for Pancake Sunday! I am so glad you made these (your version looks great!). I thought of you immediately when I saw them. And oddly enough I found the Biscoff spread and cookies at my WalMart!
My new obsession? Butternut squash again now that it’s Fall. It would be Kabocha but I can’t find them here.
I spent the weekend outside as much as possible- it was perfect weather.
Ugh, totally jealous that it’s at your Walmart! I’m convinced that my town (yeah, I’m pretty sure that Clarksville, which has FOUR Walmarts has the most stores per square foot than any other city in the country) has an unspoken vendetta against foodies. I ALWAYS have to drive an hour to Nashville for the good stuff!
Thank you soooo much for giving me the heads up on these pancakes. Girl, they were amazing, especially with the figs and bananas! Mmm! Oh god, now I’m hungry… Lol!
We’ve been getting some pretty fantastic weather here too. I took today and tomorrow off work and have been trying to enjoy as much of it as I can since I know it won’t stay like this for long!
Your Biscoff spread posts are making me devastated. I cannot get Biscoff spread in Australia……I am undecided whether or not this is a good thing given that my waist really does not have a need for above mentioned spread (my tastebuds however are dying of curiosity……it takes pure genius to come up with turning cookies into a spreadable form!!!) YUM! An especially big yum to the pancakes!!
I’m thinking I might have to try and attempt a home made version!
Ohhhh! Let me know if you do! I would be all over that in a heartbeat!
And I know what you mean. I was curious about it for so long, and finally I just couldn’t take it any longer and had to see what all the fuss was about! I never could deny by curiosity! 😉
I’ll definitely let you know! I knew I’d seen a home made version somewhere in my interweb travels so googled and found this: http://seitanismymotor.com/2009/08/homemade-speculoos-spread/
Now I just have to find the cookies. My local supermarket has been out for the last 2 days 🙁
Omg, I totally thought of you when I went on a pinning spree yesterday and found this: http://butteredup.blogspot.com/2011/10/speculoos-cookies.html Homemade speculoos cookies!!
Awesome! Thanks 😀 I might just have to make those (I have speculaas cookies-finally found them…..half way across the other side of the area I live in ((!)) but I read they’re not the same 🙁 )
Mhmm! Those pancakes look delicous! My newest food obsession is home made raspberry sorbet! Sooo good! 🙂
Homemade huh? Nice! I give you props for that! I’ve owned an ice cream maker for almost a year and STILL have never taken it out of the box! Haha!
I keep on seeing Biscoff spread on blogs, but I’ve never seen it in stores here. It must be an American thing. 😛 These pancakes sure do look good though!
My newest obsession is Oikos 2% vanilla Greek yogurt. Except my grocery store is always sold out of it! Grr!
Oh I hate it when you fall in love with something new only to find that it’s a battle to get it in your possession again!
The Biscoff is actually originally from Belgium. I think it goes by Speculoos spread over in Europe though?
SWEET. JESUS. i NEED that spread! i need it! my thighs/arteries/blood sugar levels do not need it….. but sometimes you just can’t listen to those pesky little party-poopers.
Haha! It’s been an internal battle since I cracked that jar open…obviously you can figure who won! 😉
AMAZING. I’m totally going to suggest we make these at work. [We are the only store in Texas that stocks Biscoff…and sometimes I get to demo cooking things…and I can actually eat this without the butter—and with your almond milk subsitution–as they are vegan! (At least, when I checked the label the other day the Biscoff appeared to be…now I’m getting anxiously sad it’s not! Hahahahha, c’est la vie –when vegan for a month!)]
PS. That was the biggest ramble ever.
PPS. Well, not ever. You’ve read my blog. You know how I can be.
Haha! You make me giggle girlie! Ugh, I would LOVE to demo cooking things…and to know that I am responsible for getting people hooked onto things they may have never known existed…much like blogworld does to us unsuspecting bloggers!
“What? You say I should try kombucha? Ok, where’s the harm in buying one $4 bottle of juice??…Oh yeah, you forgot to tell me that I’d become addicted and want to sell my sister for another one!!” 😉
Three words: Earth Balance Spread!
I’m always a little weary of mixing nut butters (I just classify biscoff spread as a nut butter. Whatever!) in to batters because I’m scared the flavor will get lost ! I think I’ll take your word for it, though. These look fabulous!! 🙂
I think the trick is that it has to be a nut butter with a pretty strong flavor already. I know what you mean though, I’ve experimented with different nut butters in baked goods before and been totally disappointed in the flavor of the finished product. Thankfully the Biscoff has a strong sweet “smack yo mama” kind of sweetness that isn’t one to get lost in a batter! 😉
I’ve seen Biscoff in the store but have no idea what it tastes like! I’ll eat anything pancake-y though 🙂
DON’T DO ITTTTTT! Or do…and become my Biscoff junkie buddy! We can huddle in a corner together with our jars and spoons and growl at anyone who comes too close! 😉
OH boy. This is dangerous. I finished my biscoff spread in about a week. None left ! I’ll have to buy more and make this 🙂
I know, I’m almost out but I’m wondering if I SHOULD buy more…haha!
Biscoff is so addictive! Love that stuff! 😀
The best thing from my weekend was sleeping all day Saturday.
I am obsessed with “kid’s” cereals right now.
Where do you buy biscoff spread?
Ahhh, lazy day Saturdays are the best! I actually got up at a pretty decent time, but a few hours later, totally went back to bed for 3 hours! Haha!
Love kiddie cereals! Though my last one one was a bit of a let down…Panda Puffs? They were just meh!
I got the Biscoff at Whole Foods in the pb section, but I’ve heard that some Wal-Marts carry it too!
Dang those look good! I wonder if I can have that spread??? I made some nutmeg muffins today that knocked my socks off. Definitely a perfect way to enjoy fall! I hope you have a great week!
I caught a quick glance at those muffins the other day…they sound like the perfect fall treat! I’ve been feeling a bit of a baking itch brewing lately, so I think I might just have to make some of them this weekend! You’re recipes never disappoint Sarena!
So I’m kind of in love with all of your pancake recipes, but this one definitely took it to a whole new level! Can I come stay at your house and have you cook breakfast for me every morning? I think I would have one happy belly. And I’ve never really been a huge pancake fan. Do you have any ideas for sweet potato pancakes or waffles? I would love to see one for those.
Thanks for such a fun blog to read 🙂
Aww, thank you for such a super sweet comment girlie! And thank you for the pancake idea! I will definitely get to thinking of a sweet potato recipe! Can’t believe I haven’t already thought of that!
And come on over any time! Breakfast on the weekends is served about 9 o’clock! 😉
I’ve seen that Biscoff stuff everywhere, you people are obsessed 🙂 I might have to go get some. I would have never thought about figs on pancakes, yum!
Oh girl, you haven’t lived! I made some prosciutto and fig pancakes a few months ago that were ahhhhhhhhmazing! And YOU people?? Ha, get some of that stuff and you’ll be willing to join the Biscoff cult too! Lol!
Ooh, I’m so jealous that spread’s not gluten-free; I’ve been seeing it (and drooling over it) everywhere!
My newest thing is Cadbury’s Crunchie bars – so unhealthy but so good 🙂
Aww, that stinks! Gluten finds it’s way into everything!
Haven’t heard of those bars…are they like the Cadbury eggs?
I’ve been spotting that spread everywhere, is it peanut butter?
It’s a pb alternative. No nuts…just crack! 😉
Holy Moly, these sounds fantastic! Bloggers are really going crazy over Biscoff at the moment- must be so so good!!
