Bagel With Speculoos Spread

Spread biscoff (spéculoos) spread on a bagel (it makes a raisin bagel taste like dessert), or enjoy a spoonful straight from the jar. Photo courtesy Lotus Bakeries.

WHAT IT IS: A sweet spread the consistency of peanut butter, with the flavor of gingerbread.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: Called “Europe’s alternative to peanut butter,” it’s nut-free, all natural, vegan and as delicious as fudge (but far less sweet). Note: Product is packed in a facility where tree nut products are processed.
WHY WE LOVE IT: It’s new to the U.S., it’s delicious, it’s a multi-tasker for baked goods, bread spreads, pancakes, sandwiches, apples and much more.
WHERE TO BUY IT: and at retailers nationwide (the distribution of this new product is growing). Here’s a $1.00 coupon for retail purchases.

Let’s be perfectly clear: biscoff/spéculoos spread is no more a kids’ food than Nutella or peanut butter. Which is to say, its admirers cut across all age groups.

Here are some quick ideas; three pages of recipes follow: carrot cupcakes, yogurt fruit dip and a lunchbox sandwich.


  • Bread & Toast: Enjoy biscoff/spéculoos spread with bagels, toast or cinnamon raisin bread.
  • Pancakes: Make a pancake sandwich or a waffle sandwich, with sliced fruit.


  • Sandwich: Substitute peanut butter with biscoff/spéculoos spread on a sandwich: plain, with jelly or with sliced bananas. Here’s a sandwich recipe that combines all three.


  • Ladybugs On A Log: Fill celery stalks with biscoff/spéculoos spread, and switch the raisin “ants” for dried cranberry/Craisin “ladybugs.”
  • Happy Face Snack: Spread a six-inch multigrain or whole wheat tortilla with biscoff/spéculoos spread. Make a “face” using matchstick or shredded carrots for the hair, sliced ends of plum tomatoes for the cheeks, halved pimiento-stuffed olives for the eyes, and two raisins or Craisins for the nostrils. Make the smile and eyebrows from string cheese whips. After admiring the face—and perhaps giving it a name—roll up the tortilla and enjoy.
  • Banana Milkshake Or Smoothie: Combine in a blender a small, ripe banana in chunks with 1/4 cup biscoff spread. Blend until smooth. Add 1-1/2 cups vanilla yogurt or frozen yogurt, 1/4 cup milk and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Blend until smooth. Makes two servings. For a thicker shake or smoothie, freeze the banana chunks.
