These Lotus blondies use just 10 simple ingredients.
Detailed quantities and instructions in the recipe card below.
- Lotus Biscoff cookies: You’ll need just 12 Lotus Biscoff cookies. If you can’t get them, try to find speculoos or a spiced cookie. Filled with spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, these are the most well-known speculoos cookie around. See my “variations” section for an easy swap.
- Lotus Biscoff spread: They really can’t be Biscoff blondies without Biscoff spread but if you can get other types of cookie butter, they’ll work too. Or see my “variations” section for another swap.
- Butter: Use unsalted butter (or leave out the added salt if you only have salted on hand).
- White chocolate: A little melted white chocolate adds to the fudgy texture of the blondies without giving them a white chocolate flavour. While many recipes add white chocolate chips, I feel they’re not needed and actually detract from the Biscoff flavour.
- Sugar: I use both white and brown sugar for this recipe. The white adds classic sweetness and helps with the crispy top while the brown adds chewiness and a light caramel flavour.
- Eggs: I use large free-range eggs.
- Flour: You only need plain flour / all-purpose flour.
- Baking powder: Make sure to use baking powder, not baking soda.
- Salt: Just a little salt intensifies flavours.
How to make Biscoff blondies (step-by-step)
Detailed quantities and instructions in the recipe card below.
- Melt the butter and chocolate: I use the microwave but you can also melt your butter and chocolate together in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. If you use the microwave, only heat in 30 second increments and stir very well after each so you don’t overheat. If using the saucepan, use a bowl that won’t touch the simmering water.
- Add everything: First whisk the sugars into the melted butter and chocolate (photo 1) until combined. Follow that with the eggs and biscoff spread (photo 2), whisking until smooth. Finally, add the dry ingredients directly to the mixing bowl (photo 3) and whisk those in too.
- Assemble and bake: Line an 8 inch baking pan with baking paper, then break up 6 cookies and scatter them in the bottom (photo 4). Pour over the batter, leveling it out with a spatula, then top with the remaining 6 cookies (photo 5). Bake for around 35 minutes. The top should look dry and the blondies won’t jiggle anymore.
Tips and tricks
- Whisking in the eggs: Once you add the eggs, give the mixture a good whisk as this helps to create that flaky top.
- Don’t overmix: After adding the flour, don’t overmix the batter or you may end up with tough and possibly drier blondies.
- Use a scale: Using a kitchen scale will ensure you get the right amount of flour. Too much or too little will give a very different texture. If you don’t have kitchen scales, use the cup measurements but spooning the flour in and level off with a knife – don’t pack it into the cup.
- Let them cool: Be patient. If you try to slice them while still hot, they’ll be gooey and difficult to handle. Letting them cool will allow the butter and chocolate to re-set and give you the fudgy texture. They’re good just a little warm though.
- Don’t overbake: Overbaking will ruin the fudgy texture we’re after and make them more cake-like. Still edible, still yum but not fudgy.
Can’t get Lotus Biscoff products where you are? No worries. This same recipe works great with either peanut butter or Nutella in place of the Biscoff cookie butter and chocolate cookies in place of the Lotus Biscoff biscuits.
Yield and storage
This Biscoff blondie recipe yields 9 large slices or 16 smaller ones. While these aren’t sickly sweet, they’re still decadent so I recommend the smaller size then go back for more if you want them – which I generally do.
These blondies store well for 3-4 days in an airtight container at room temperature or up to a week in the fridge – if they last that long. To prolong freshness, only cut enough to serve as you’re serving and leave the rest of the slice intact.
