My kids love Biscoff cookies. I see them often at Costco, and I always avoid buying them because if left to their own devices, my kids would annihilate the bulk size package in one sitting.
Recently my son discovered my secret stash of cookie butter, and he has become smitten with the stuff. A few weeks ago I caught him making his own epic 8-slice sandwich, filled to the brim with his beloved cookie butter, nutella, and peanut butter. Strange combination aside, I wish I had that kind of metabolism 🤣
These pancakes are a special treat for the cookie butter lovers in your life. I’ve adapted my go-to buttermilk pancake recipe to fit the bill, and the resulting pancakes are light, fluffy, and lightly spiced with that delicious cookie butter flavor. I’ve intentionally left the pancakes lightly sweetened and flavored, so that you can top them to your heart’s desire with melted cookie butter and maple syrup.
Cookie Butter Pancakes (Biscoff Pancakes)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup cookie butter
- ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups buttermilk
- Cookie butter, slightly melted
- Maple syrup
- Whipped Cream
- Crushed speculoos cookies
In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together cookie butter, melted butter, vanilla, and eggs. Slowly whisk in buttermilk.
Make a well in the center on the dry ingredients, and slowly add the buttermilk mixture. Gently whisk until just incorporated, with a few lumps remaining. Do not overmix the batter.
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium to medium-low heat. Brush the pan with oil, just enough to ensure that the pancakes do not stick to the bottom. Using ¼-cup of batter per pancake, add the batter to the skillet and cook until large bubbles appear, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the pancake and cook until browned on the second side. Repeat with remaining batter, brushing the pan with oil as needed.
Garnish as desired.
