I don’t know about you but I have literally been eating spoons of biscoff straight from the jar! It’s soooo delicious and seems to be an ingredient right on trend at the moment! Well I took it to next level and made these deliciously gooey vegan biscoff brownies!!!
You can make so many things with biscoff, wether it’s the lotus biscuits or smooth spread! From pancakes, to flavouring coffee and pretty cakes to freak shakes!
Biscoff is one of those guilty pleasures that just so happens to be accidentally vegan, I am not complaining! If you have not heard of if before, think of the taste of cookies, now imagine that in a smooth spread! Yes that is correct, cookie spread!
Biscoff Vegan Brownies
Brownies are all about the gooey centre and the ingredients in this recipe lend itself to this perfectly! Melted chocolate, cocoa and melted smooth biscoff spread! With a careful eye on the oven during cooking you are game set and match for nailing the consistency!
These vegan lotus biscoff brownies are surprisingly easy to make, you only need a handful of ingredients and utensils.
You will need:
1 1/4 cup of all self raising flour
1/4 a cup of vegan cocoa
1 cup of caster sugar
1/3 a cup of vegetable oil
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 cup of plant milk of choice ( I used oat milk)
1/2 a cup of melted Bisocoff smooth spread
1/2 a cup of melted vegan chocolate
In terms of utensil you will need:
2 mixing bowls, 2 mixing spoons & a sieve
A pan for melting ingredients
A baking tray
A knob of butter to grease the tray
Vegan Lotus Biscoff Brownies Instructions
Start off by greasing and lining the baking tray with paper. I always do it both length and width ways so its easy to cradle the brownies out of the tray later. Equally this ensures you cover the sides of the tray, so the mix won’t stick.
Next you can sieve the self raising flour, vegan cocoa and caster sugar into one of the mixing bowls. Combine the dry mix well together before setting it to one side.
At this point you can pre heat the oven to 350F / 180 C. This is a guide only and will depend on the power of your oven. The best thing to do is keep a careful watch over during cooking time.
Next, on a medium heat, add the milk, vanilla essence, biscoff spread and chocolate together. Mix gently whilst everything melts. Turn the heat off and make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
Gently pour biscoff brownies vegan wet mix into the centre of the well. Using a spoon gently fold all of the ingredients together until well combined.
Biscoff Brownies Cooking Time
Pour the mix into the pre greased and lined tray. If you would like to make a marble effect on the brownies with biscoff this is what you need to do!
Keep a little bit of biscoff spread to one side to melt and add a marble effect to the brownies. You will need to melt approximately 2 tablespoons and add blobs of it to the top of the mix before cooking.
Using a sharp knife run it through the mix gently in different directions to get a marble effect. This is not a necessity and will not change the taste and flavour of your brownies, I did this purely for fun.
Add the brownie mix to the middle shelf and keep a close eye on how things are looking. My brownies took around 25 to 30 minutes to cook.
Don’t forget if you leave it too long, you will loose that gooey centre and it may turn out more similar to cake than brownies!
Once cooked, allow the brownies to cool down in the tray. Once it’s possible to handle things, gently cradle the brownies out of the tray using the paper onto a cooling tray.
When the brownies are completely cool, pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes. This will allow you to chop them up into squares perfectly.
I don’t know about you but brownies hardly make it past the cooling stage in my house before there are little hands stealing! My kids love helping with this recipe but they definitely need distraction.
I cut this mix up into around 10 really good sized brownies. They are quite heavy as are all brownies so you could cut them up even smaller if you wanted to! Bite sized is perfect in fact.
Storing These Vegan Brownies
These brownies keep really well. You can store them in an air tight container in a cool pantry or cupboard. Again they generally don’t last that long with my kids but they sure do stay fresh when I manage to hide them.
Top Tips & General Advice For Making Biscoff Brownies
You can use smooth or crunchy biscoff spread in this recipe, either works really well. In fact you hardly recognise the crunch if you use the crunchy spread. If you would like a crunch, I suggest smashing up some of the lotus biscuits and adding them to the mix .
You can also decorate the brownies with lotus biscuits for the ultimate biscoff feast. I felt these brownies are enough on their own, however if you love the presentation this is a great touch.
I find self raising flour to be the best type of flour for these brownies. In general I always find when I change the flour they don’t come out as well.
Kids and adults absolutely love these brownies, they have gone down a treat with the whole family including our neighbours.

- In a bowl combine the self raising flour, caster sugar and cocoa together until completely blended. Set to one side and begin to prepare the wet mix.

- In the dry mix bowl, make a well in the centre, creating a space to add all of the wet ingredients.
- Fold the mix together until completely combined.
- Pour the mix into the pre lined baking tray and put on the middle shelf.
- Please remember that different ovens witll have varying levels of strength.
- Keep an eye on the brownies intermittently to ensure the mix is not burning.

- Remove from the oven and let the vegan biscoff brownies cool down enough to transfer to a cooling tray. Use the edges of the baking paper to help get it onto the cooling tray.
