Instead of PB&J, try Biscoff spread (spéculoos) and jam or jelly, with a sliced banana for nutrition. Photo courtesy Cinema Addict | Flickr.

Spéculoos Sandwich Recipe

Page 5: Use Spéculoos Spread Instead Of Peanut Butter For Sandwiches & Snacks


CAPSULE REPORT: This is the fifth page of recipe ideas for spéculoos spread, known in the U.S. as Biscoff spread. Click on the black links below to visit other pages.


Spéculoos is a delicious peanut butter alternative that contains no nuts. It’s delicious for everyone who likes a bit of spice (the principal flavor is ginger) in a creamy spread. In fact, the kids may like it even more when they know that it’s made of ground gingersnap cookies.

    whole grain bread

You can easily add your own creative spin to the recipe.

  • Consider a sprinkle of shredded coconut or another fruit, such as crunchy apple slices. For a more sophisticated take, add sliced dates and/or figs.
  • For a sweeter treat, add some miniature chocolate chips or shaved chocolate.
  • We like to make this sandwich as a grilled panino (referred to in the plural form, panini, in the U.S.).
  • You can create a pancake or waffle sandwich for breakfast or lunch.
