Why you’ll love this recipe:
- Cookie Butter – Cookie butter is mixed into the batter and swireld on top of the blondies – the baked cookie butter blondies have heavenly melted pools of cookie butter on top!
- Biscoff Cookie Crumbs – Lotus Biscoff cookie crumbs are mixed into the blondie batter and sprinkled on top for maximum biscoff flavor.
- Thick & Chewy Blondies – These blondies bake to chewy perfection, with a fudgy texture. They’re buttery, and oh-so-delicious!
- Cookie Butter – Biscoff spread (also called cookie butter), is made by Biscoff, but you can of course use any brand you like (Trader Joe’s makes a great one!).
- Biscoff Cookie Crumbs – Lotus Biscoff Biscuits (cookies) are a classic. You can find these near the cookies in most grocery stores. They’re sometimes called speculoos cookies.
- Butter – I always use salted buter for the best flavor, but feel free to use unsalted butter if you prefer.
- Flour – All-purpose flour is the way to go here! No need for cake flour or anything else.
- Vanilla extract – Be sure to use real vanilla extract for the best results.
- Cinnamon – A hint of cinnamon pairs so well with the warm flavor of the cookie butter.
- Dairy-free – Use your favorite dairy-free butter to make this biscoff blondie recipe dairy-free.
- Gluten-free – I haven’t tried it but I think these blondies could work well with a gluten-free 1:1 all-purpose flour.
How to Make this Recipe Step-by-Step:
Step 1: Make the Blondie Batter. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients – the melted butter and cookie butter. Whisk in the sugar, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients and cookie butter crumbs and fold in with a rubber spatula until combined. You’ll have a kind of thick chunky dough.
Step 2: Press the dough into a 9×9 ceramic pan and sprinkle biscoff cookie pieces on top.
Step 3: Swirl & Bake. Swirl dollops of cookie butter onto the top of the blondies, add a few more cookie pieces if desired, and follow the baking time in the full recipe card below for best results.
The cookie butter swirls melt into luscious pools on top of the blondies – you must dig in to these while they’re warm from the oven! It’s the ultimate treat for cookie butter lovers.
Expert Success Tips:
- Don’t Over Bake – Don’t over bake your blondies or they will become dry, instead of being nice and chewy & buttery. Follow the bake time and cues in the recipe card below. A slight wobble in the center when they come out is normal, as long as the edges appear set.
- Can I make this recipe ahead? I think these are best when they’re just a few hours out of the oven because they’re still warm and a little gooey. But, leftovers can be reheated in the microwave to get back some of gooey texture.
- Gingersnaps – Try crushed gingersnap cookies in place of the biscoff cookies if you’d like.
- Biscoff Alternatives – Use any brand of cookie butter you like. You could also try these with another nut butter, if desired.
- White Chocolate Chips – Add white chocolate chunks or chips if you’d like.
Serving + Storing this Recipe:
Let the blondies cool 1-2 hours at room temp on a wire rack, then slice and serve! I like them best while they’re warm from the oven (gooey blondies!!) but leftovers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days, and can be reheated if desired.

- Oven Thermometer – Always make sure your oven is running at the correct temperature to avoid failed bakes. An oven thermometer is priceless for all bakers!
- 9×9 Pan – I use a ceramic 9×9 pan for all my brownie and bar recipes – the exact one I have is from Crate & Barrel and is a few years old, but here’s a similar one!
