Imagine you’re on an airplane. It’s about halfway through your flight, and the flight attendant comes down the aisle with a beverage cart. There are also a few snacks on there. It’s your turn, and they ask you what you want. Your snack options are peanuts, pretzels or cookies. Remember how I’m a person who loves sweets waaay more than anything salty? Yep. You better bet that I choose the cookies. What would you choose?
If you chose the cookies like I did, you open the wrapper, and get nothing other than famous Biscoff cookies. This is how I was first introduced to Biscoff cookies – through airplane flights. Now, don’t assume that just because they are served on an airplane they are your stereotypical “airplane food.” They are indeed very delicious cookies! And you don’t have to go on an airplane just to try them
NOW, Biscoff has introduced a new version of the cookie: Biscoff cookie spread! It’s like the consistency of peanut butter, but made of Biscoff Cookies! Oh my…it is SO darn good. We’re talking straight out of the jar good. It comes in crunchy and creamy. Yes…crunchy means it has actual cookie bits in it!
I found out about this amazing spread as other bloggers were blogging about it. They were all making absolutely fantastic recipes from it, and it made me want to try some. I found out there was a contest to make the best recipe using Biscoff spread, but I was too late to join :(. But…half the fun of joining contests is creating something and having fun making it, so I decided to make something creative and yummy with Biscoff Spread anyway.
I decided to make this bread because, let’s be honest…who doesn’t love quick breads!? They’re easy, and DELICIOUS! Plus, the idea of the glaze made my mouth water, so I had to try it out. It worked out perfectly, and even better than I ever imagined.
I really like this bread because of the spice! My mother really enjoys spice cakes and breads, so I always grew up eating them often and still love them now. However, I also think that a super tasty alternative to this would be to replace the cinnamon chips with white chocolate chips – YUM! I’ll have to try that. Also, it would be yummy to add zucchini to this bread to make it… “healthy”
All these ingredients are really easy to find! Cinnamon chips are now sold year-round at my local Wal-Mart! Wohoo!!! They used to only be available seasonally, so I was very excited when they made the change. I also was able to buy my Biscoff Spread at a Wal-Mart, but if you aren’t a Wal-Mart fan, or you don’t have one nearby, here is a store locator.
