Good news, everyone. Crunchy Biscoff spread has arrived! Hooray! Tell all of your friends. I’ve been telling everyone I know. I hope this spread is here to stay because it’s delicious.
I’ve talked about Biscoff spread on here before, but if you don’t remember, it’s a spread the consistency of peanut butter, but doesn’t contain any peanuts or nuts. It’s made with ground up Biscoff cookies, sugar and oil, and tastes a lot like graham crackers… but better.
Biscoff is releasing their new Biscoff Crunchy Spread in April, and they sent me a sample. It has little bits of Biscoff cookies in it, and I think it tastes even better than the creamy version. I used this whole jar in two days, in two different recipes. Must. Buy. More. Biscoff.
I like the flavor of Biscoff and banana together, and my banana bread recipes seem popular on the blog, so I created a Biscoff banana bread.
Topped with banana chips. I love the look of dried banana pressed into the bread.
I was able to use less sugar and no additional fat in the bread because I used Biscoff. So really there aren’t a ton of ingredients… just Biscoff, banana, sugar, flour, leavening, salt, vanilla and eggs.
The Biscoff spread has cinnamon in it, but you could add some additional spices to this if you desire. Or, you could add some chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, or peanut butter chips.
I served this with Crunchy Biscoff spread on top. Butter would be great, too! Or, bear with me, what if you spread Crunchy Biscoff between two slices of Biscoff banana bread, then cooked the sandwich in a skillet with butter and made it all crispy…
Crunchy Biscoff Banana Bread
1 cup mashed ripe banana
3/4 cup Crunchy Biscoff
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Banana chips, for garnish (optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together banana, Biscoff, sugar and eggs until well combined and doubled in volume - about 3 minutes. Beat in baking powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla until combined. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour until just combined. Place batter into pan; top with banana chips. Bake 50-55 minutes or until deep golden brown, well risen, and a toothpick inserted into bread comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool on a wire rack before slicing.
