Cinnamon Blueberry Biscoff Breakfast Cookies

Cinnamon Blueberry Biscoff Breakfast Cookies

I am so excited to be celebrating my sweet, precious friend Jenny today. You guys know Jenny from her blog Picky Palate where she posts her fun and creative kitchen creations — from outrageously decadent and dreamy desserts to simple, family-friendly weeknight dinners.  She’s also got a cookbook coming out this fall with even more of her amazing recipes! Jenny is the sweetest, kindest, happiest person I know. She is a true inspiration to me, and I’m so honored to call her a friend. Jenny is expecting a new baby boy any day now, and we couldn’t be happier for this sweet, glowing mama! Today a few of us got together to throw her a “virtual surprise baby shower” and celebrate Jenny and her new bundle of joy. Happy Baby Shower Day, Jenny!! We love you girl!! xoxo

So let me tell you about these cookies! You know how Delta serves Biscoff cookies on their flights? That’s the best part about flying Delta, right?! :) A few weeks ago on a US Airways flight, I was served blueberry cookies. They were very similar to Biscoff cookies, but they tasted like a blueberry muffin! I was immediately obsessed with them, and had to come straight home and make blueberry cookies. I am SO in love with the blueberry, cinnamon, and Biscoff combination in these cookies! And of course, the best part is that you can eat them for breakfast! I mean, they’re basically like a blueberry muffin. In a cookie. :)

Cinnamon Blueberry Biscoff Breakfast Cookies

We’ve got your basic cookie ingredients here: flour, baking soda, salt, butter, eggs, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar, along with our fabulous extra ingredients that make these cookies shine: dried blueberries, Biscoff spread, cinnamon, and white chocolate chips.

Cinnamon Blueberry Biscoff Breakfast Cookies

Oh, glorious Biscoff! If you’ve never had Biscoff, I would highly recommend seeking it out! My grocery store carries Biscoff right next to the regular peanut butter. It even comes in a creamy and crunchy variety, just like peanut butter. It also goes by the name Cookie Butter at Trader Joe’s or Speculoos Spread is its generic name if you see that anywhere. It’s got the consistency of peanut butter, but it tastes like sweet, cinnamony graham crackers. Total. Heaven. I am a huge fan of peanut butter, and you know I love all things sweet, so this is totally right up my alley. If you like toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, try making one with Biscoff! The warm gooey biscoff, with the crunchy bread, and the sweet jam.. Oh my gosh. But let’s get back to these cookies.

Cinnamon Blueberry Biscoff Breakfast Cookies

Add 1/2 cup each of white sugar and brown sugar to a bowl, along with 1 stick of butter and and 1 cup of Biscoff.

I am a firm believer that there is seriously nothing better than butter and brown sugar.

Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes until well combined, then add 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and beat for 2 more minutes.

Meanwhile combine 1 3/4 cups flour, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Whisk it all together to combine. Add to wet ingredients and beat on low speed until just combined.

Congrats to Jenny!!! Biscoff Spread….OMG. I just saw that at the market yesterday for the first time and wondered what it was. I am stopping on my WAY TO WORK to buy some. Dear Darling Amanda….I love all your posts but I truly miss your babies; I can’t even remember the last time we saw Miley and Howie. I have fallen in love with Boston Terriers. My friend asked me to take care of her BT, Mugsey Foley the Good Humor Ice Cream Man, when she goes out of town, and of course I said YES!!!

Hi there-these look delicious and i love that you use dried blueberries so this recipe can be made all year.

Don’t you find TJ’s cookie butter is a tad more delicious than the Biscoff Spread?

thanks for all your great recipes.

I have them both, but I can’t tell the difference between them… Sounds like a side-by-side taste-test comparison is in order :)

Hey Amanda,

I have to say these cookies sound great. We still make your monkey bread for my teenagers and their friends and your chicken enchiladas have become a regular around our place. I first met you on Scrapjazz and got introduced to your recipes, and scrapbook ideas, and photo tips…LOL So glad to see things are going well for you… Keep the yummy recipes coming, my family is always anxious to try something new! Thanks, Gaylynne

I’m not familiar with Biscoff. I’ll check for it at local stores. I was wondering — since blueberries and almonds work well together, could almond butter be substituted for the Biscoff?

Hello Amanda – wow, such a lovely blog you have. Thank you for sharing your lovely recipes. I live in England and I am not sure if Biscoff spread is available here sadly – could you recommend using something as a substitution? I have seen that someone asked about almond butter; is there anything else that you think could work? Thank you for your help and thank you so much for sharing your talents and stories :)
