Last week, I whipped up a batch of dark chocolate whole wheat brownies- which were delicious by themselves. I, however, love to top my brownies with peanut butter…I know, I know. But it’s delicious!! Then, one of our friends let us in on a little tip: Biscoff spread. It is a peanut-butter-like spread made from (get this) crunchy cinnamon cookies! It’s addictive, and (warning!) it WILL ruin your diet. Fair warning.
So, naturally, the only scientific thing to do is a side-by-side comparison: Biscoff vs. Peanut Butter. Here they are:
The Biscoff spread is marketed as a “peanut butter alternative,” but be aware: it is loaded with sugar, and actually made from cookies. It’s delicious.
Here are the above-mentioned dark chocolate whole wheat brownies:
And here they are: Chunky Peanut Butter on the left, and Biscoff on the right:
Both were delicious; the Biscoff was sweeter, almost like a frosting for the brownies, but the peanut butter had that salty-sweet thing going on. It was a tie! Don’t make me choose. I can’t do it!
So, if you can find Biscoff at your supermarket, give it a whirl. If it’s not at your local store, you can also buy it at Amazon, but it will be 3 times the cost at the supermarket. But it’s good. Real good.
