Biscoff Crunch Banana Bread

  • You must make this Biscoff crunch banana bread ASAP!


    You guys. How can I emphasize to you that this bread is a MUST MAKE IMMEDIATELY?! Like, I wish I had made two or three loaves of it because it ended up being such a hit and I literally could not stop eating it. I might’ve cried just a little when it was all gone. Maybe.


    Oh, and guess what? There is no oil in this bread. Yup, Greek yogurt rocks. I don’t think Biscoff made this less healthy though, I think it ENHANCED the awesomeness of this bread. Seriously, I kept sniffing the slices of warm bread. It was like a banana party in my nose. Oh my gosh, speaking of banana party – does anyone remember Bananas in Pajamas? HAHA now that song is in my head and those creepy bananas in the blue and white striped pajamas are dancing around in my head. Creeeepy.


    Yeah, so back to this bread. I was thinking of ways to make banana bread unique and different from the norm and so I thought of using peanut butter in it but everyone has had peanut butter banana bread before and I didn’t want to go the Elvis route so I looked in my pantry and had Biscoff spread and then my coworker gave me Biscoff cookies and then my brain went DING DING DING! Crushed Biscoff cookies within a Biscoff banana bread. And I totally took it to another level by adding the crushed cookies on top of the bread too! This bread is just overloaded with bananas and Biscoff crunch and I should mention that it is super moist and not one bit dry. You seriously won’t be missing that old banana bread you’re used to!

    Winner in my book which automatically means winner in yours. As I like to think ;)

    Go let some bananas rot ripen.

    What a great idea!! I can only imagine how good the combo of bananas and Biscoff is! I think I’m out of Biscoff spread right now – not sure how I let that happen, but clearly I need to grab some this weekend :)

  • shelly (cookies and cups) says:

    Brilliant!
    I bet this is completely amazing!

  • Shaina says:

    I love love LOVE banana bread. I am definitely going to have to try this out… I don’t think I’ve ever had a Biscoff cookie??? What do they taste like??

    • Julie says:

      It’s hard to describe the taste..but the best way to describe it is that it tastes kind of like spreadable gingerbread but not as strong as gingerbread. It’s a cookie spread, so if you’ve had the TJ version of speculoos, I think it’s similar in taste. :)

  • Carrie @ Bakeaholic Mama says:

    Genius!!! I <3 all things Biscoff.

  • Pam Kennedy says:

    This banana bread is awesome!

  • I always thought that Bananas in Pajamas were creepy too! And now I have that song stuck in my head!
    Anyways, about that ridiculously amazing bread. . .I need to make some!!

  • Living The Sweet Life says:

    OHHH MMMYYY WOOOORRRDDD … first of all, I NEED to get my hands on biscoff spread. I’m 100% sure we don’t have it in Canada and it’s killing me.

    Also, I LOOOVEE adding cookies to banana bread. I added ginger snaps not too long ago ( http://livingthesweetlifeblog.wordpress.com/2011/11/01/oh-ginger-snap-flax-seed-banana-bread/) – – fantastic :)

    Annndd .. .banana’s in pajamas – – classic growing up!!

  • sally @ sally's baking addiction says:

    You know I’m a HUGE fan of banana bread Julie!! I am ALWAYSSSSSSSSSSS looking for new banana bread recipes! Biscoff is like spreadable graham crackers + gingerbread…. two of my FAVES. Pairing it with banana is genius, Julie! I love today’s recipe. :)

  • Maria says:

    No way! I JUST made a very similar banana bread-with Biscoff and a Biscoff Cookies on top! I have the photos to prove it…ha! I still need to post it though! Love yours!

    • Julie says:

      Maria, we are meant to be! This is hilarious! Great minds think alike, clearly!! ;) I can’t wait to see yours!!

  • Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious says:

    Dude, you really went all out here! I love that it’s so different and unique, and the double biscoff hit in these. And yeah, I totally remember bananas in pajamas. They were creepy but I loved them, especially when they referred to each other as B1 and B2.

  • Christina @ This Woman Cooks! says:

    Yes! A new banana bread to try with my new fav ingredient!

  • Amy @ fearless homemaker says:

    YUM, this sounds absolutely fantastic! love the addition of the crushed up cookies in addition to the spread.

    Wow, I need this for breakfast this morning, YUM!

    Biscoff and banana bread…heaven help me!!! That is absolutely awesome! Now I need to go eat a spoonful of biscoff to tide me over until I go buy more bananas:-)

  • Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray says:

    Baaaananas in pajamas, are coming down the stairs! My sister was obsessed with that show when we were kids.

    Also. This bread. Have mercy.

  • Katie @ Blonde Ambition says:

    I still haven’t tried Biscoff cookies or spread!! What are they like? I feel like I hear about them on a ton of blogs!

  • Jennifer @ Mother Thyme says:

    Genius! I need this bread in my life, stat! :)

  • Kathryn says:

    Using biscoff was an inspiration girl!

  • Carla @ Carla's Confections says:

    Ok seriously, stop tempting me with these things that I can’t have for another four weeks! But really, don’t stop! I love this! I can’t wait to get my hands on some biscoff when I get home! I love banana bread and I can only imagine how amazing this is! We should make some of this when I visit you :)

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    I have all but the yogurt to make these!! I think plain yogurt needs to be a staple item since it makes baked goods so amazingly moist. And then there’s biscoff… can’t live without it!

  • Jen @ Savory Simple says:

    You have such a beautiful blog! This sounds wonderful.

  • Anna @ hiddenponies says:

    The crunch in there must be amazing, I have to try this if I evvvverrr get my hands on Biscoff spread!! And now I have to teach Bananas in Pajamas to my kids tomorrow, thank you :)

  • Lynna says:

    OMG….this seriously sounds glorious.

  • This sounds sooo good. I love the different textures going on in this bread. I’ve never tried biscoff (I know, what kind of a foodie am I?) but I imagine it to be like cookie butter and if it is.. I want this bread in my mouth NOW.

  • Cassie says:

    I wish I had some biscoff to make this RIGHT NOW. Love, love, love. I can think of no other words!

  • ally says:

  • Herbivore Triathlete says:

    I adore banana bread and recently fell in love with Biscoff! I’ve been slathering my bananas with the delectable spread for my nightly snack, this bread will be taking over soon!

  • robin Behrent says:

    I have never seen Biscoff spread in my grocery stores. Can there be another product I can use that would be similar?

    • Julie says:

      Check the peanut butter section, they should have it. If not, then it’d be call cookie spread but that’s at Trader Joe’s. Otherwise, there is no substitute, unfortunately, for Biscoff.

    • jilly says:

      Translation or substitute for a Brit please for Biscoff spread/cookies ?

      • Julie says:

        I know the other name for it is cookie butter or cookie spread. Not sure if that’s there?

  • Amber says:

    is there a way to make this recipe without the stand mixer? could you whisk or mix it by hand?

    • Julie says:

      Yup, you can do this by hand!

  • Michelle says:

    I am about to try doubling this recipe and making it without the cookies on top- because I only have 1 left. :) Love how it uses up so many bananas, because I have a big bag full.

  • Julie says:

    I must tell you that this is the very BEST banana bread recipe I’ve ever made… And I’ve made a LOT of them.
    You’re a Genius!

    • Julie says:

      Great to hear!!

  • jean says:
