Frosted Oatmeal Raisin Biscoff Cookie Bars

Thick and chewy oatmeal raisin bars infused with Biscoff spread inside and out. The decadent spread is in the batter and the frosting so these bars taste 100% like cinnamon, spice and everything nice. All the things my blog is made of.

Biscoff is a new, silky spread made from Biscoff cookies known in Europe as speculoos. Although the spread resembles peanut butter it doesn’t taste anything like it and is in fact, nut-free and vegan making it a great substitute for nut butters and chocolate spread.

I’ll take a jar of Biscoff over peanut butter any day. Every day. All day. It makes oh-so-humble oatmeal taste like a million bucks and everything it touches turns to gold. I have a drawer full of gold spoons now.

This stuff is seriously delicious straight off a spoon, smeared on a banana, as a dip for apples or baked into your favorite recipes. You need this in your life.

Pick up a jar. . . or three so you can bake up a batch of these comforting bars or discover your own creative ways to use it. Check out Biscoff on Pinterest for delicious inspiration! You will find it in most markets in the peanut butter aisle and can use this store locator to find a store near you or purchase it online at the Biscoff store.
