This Biscoff Overnight Oats recipe is the most deliciously creamy, cinnamon-flavored oats breakfast.
If you love anything Biscoff from the spread to biscuits, this easy breakfast is for you.
You know my passion for overnight oats recipes. I make a batch weekly and I love playing with flavors.
Lately, my kids enjoy Biscoff spread, and my favorite way to use it for them – with a touch of nutrients – is to mix it into an overnight oats recipe.
This way, they enjoy the sweet cinnamon flavor of the spread but get all the proteins, fiber, and vitamins from oats and chia seeds.
How To Make Biscoff Overnight Oats
Like any of my overnight oat recipes, this is a pretty simple breakfast recipe perfect to meal prep a few days of breakfast.
All you need to make this lovely dessert for breakfast are:
- Old-Fashioned Oats – or quick oats or steel-cut oats.
- Milk of Choice – I love soy milk fortified in calcium, but any non-dairy milk works, like almond milk, cashew milk, or oat milk.
- Chia Seeds
- Cinnamon to enhance the cinnamon flavor of the spread
- Lotus Biscoff Spread
- Speculoos or Lotus Biscoff cookies
- Brown Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
In a large bowl or glass container, stir rolled oats, chia seeds, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, add Lotus Biscoff spread and melt for 10 to 20 seconds in the microwave to make it easier to stir with the remaining ingredients.
Add the liquid ingredients to the previous container with oats: melted lotus spread, milk, and vanilla extract.
Use a hand whisk to combine vigorously. You want the spread to melt in the mixture for the best flavor.
Close the container with a lid, or cover the bowl tightly. Refrigerate the oatmeal mixture for at least 6 hours or overnight for the best texture.
The next day, divide the recipe into two large glass mason jars. If you like, add a drizzle of extra melted Biscoff spread at the bottom of the jar, or use a combination of peanut butter and maple syrup.
Add the Lotus overnight oats mixture on top. Finally, add a drizzle of extra Biscoff and pieces of lotus Biscoff biscuits for a touch of crunch.
Feel free to add some extra ingredients to the oatmeal mixture to change flavors.
- Biscoff Chocolate Chips – Add 3 or 4 tablespoons of your favorite chocolate chips.
- Lotus Banana – Add 1/4 cup of mashed banana to the mixture and serve with banana slices on top of the jar.
- High-Protein – Stir in 2 tablespoons of your favorite vanilla protein powder and swap 1/4 cup of milk with plant-based Greek yogurt.
Store the overnight oats in the fridge for up to 3 days in a sealed container. You can double or triple the recipe and freeze for up to 1 month.
Thaw in the fridge the day before serving.
Below are some ingredient substitution ideas if you need them.
- Biscoff Spread Swap – Feel free to stir 1/4 cup of peanut butter with two tablespoons of maple syrup and one teaspoon of cinnamon to create your own cinnamon spread. This won’t taste like Biscoff, but it’s a great option if you can’t find the spread in-store.
- Gluten-Free – Lotus is gluten-free, but make sure you skip the lotus Biscoff speculoos. They contain wheat. Finally, pick a gluten-free oats brand.
- Brown Sugar – You can use any sweetener like maple syrup, or coconut sugar or skip it entirely if you find the recipe sweet enough
