What is Biscoff Cookie Butter?
Biscoff cookie butter is a sweet creamy spread made with Lotus Biscoff cookies. Think brown sugar and cinnamon flavors packed into a crunchy little cookie, and then blended into creamy buttery perfection. You can use it just like you would use any other creamy spread like peanut butter (or frosting!). In this recipe, we’re using this cookie butter to make Biscoff overnight oats! Nutritionally, cookie butter doesn’t have a whole lot goin’ on, but that’s okay! We’ve got the healthy part covered too with fiber-rich oats, chia, and high protein Greek yogurt.
How do you make cookie butter overnight oats?
Step 1: Add your oats, milk, vanilla, honey, yogurt, and cinnamon to your jar or container. Stir very well until well combined. Cover.
Step 2: Add your melted cookie butter last and combine. If you want creamy swirls of cookie butter, leave it a little un-mixed!
Step 3: Place your Biscoff overnight oats containers in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
Step 4: After your overnight oats have set, give them a quick stir before adding any additional toppings. Enjoy!

Overnight Oats FAQs
Can you warm up overnight oats?
Yes, you can if you prefer! Just heat them up in 30 second intervals, stirring in between.
Can you make overnight oats with water?
You can make overnight oats without milk if you prefer to. Any liquid (including water) will work for overnight oats, but you may find that the oats are not as creamy. You don’t have to use cow’s milk for overnight oats, you can use any milk alternative as well!
Can you use instant oats for overnight oats?
You can use instant oats for overnight oats, but because they are more broken down than rolled oats the texture will be different. I recommend using rolled oats for best results.
Can you freeze overnight oats?
Yes! You can freeze overnight oats for up to 3 months.
Other notes about the recipe:
Everyone likes their oats a little bit different, but the best part about overnight oats is that they are super customizable. If you like a “wetter” overnight oat result, use a little bit more liquid. If you prefer thicker oats, use a little bit less!
