These lightly sweetened oats are chewy and full of irresistible biscoff flavor. They are so creamy and just as delicious either warm or cold.
The oats and chia seeds absorb the plant based milk to form a thick, pudding-like texture. You can prepare them the night before or at least a couple of hours before you plan to enjoy them.
Biscoff is also known as Lotus (the company that makes them) or spekuloos in Belgium. It's a spread that has a similar texture to nut butter. Biscoff tastes like cookie butter with hints of cinnamon and ginger.

Ingredients and Substitutions
- Oats - Use rolled or old fashioned oats. When it comes to oats, I try to stick to organic. You can also use gluten-free here.
- Chia Seeds - Chia seeds work with the oats to absorb the liquid. They also add healthy fats, fiber, and antioxidants! Flaxseed meal would work instead.
- Maple Syrup - Maple syrup serves as a natural, refined sugar-free sweetener. Agave syrup can work as well.
- Vanilla - Pure vanilla extract adds a delicious warmth here that goes really well with Biscoff flavors.
- Plant Milk - Any milk of your choice works. I like almond, oat, or soy the best.
- Biscoff - We mix in crumbled Biscoff cookies for added flavor throughout and top them with a ganache topping made from melted Biscoff spread.
How to Make Biscoff Overnight Oats
Here are some quick visual steps. Find the full recipe with exact measurements on the recipe card below.
First, combine the oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla, and milk in a bowl.
Next, crush two of the Biscoff cookies and fold the cookie crumbs into the mixture. We'll use the other cookies for toppings.
Divide the oats across two small bowls or cups and press it down into the crevices of the dishes. I usually use glass bowls or mason jars, but plastic containers can work as well if you plan to take these with you as you head out the door.
Melt the Biscoff spread in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and pour it over the top.
For each bowl, break a cookie in half, wedge it into the Biscoff ganesh, and crumble the rest to sprinkle on top.
Cover each dish with a fitted lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate them for 2 hours or more. The oats will soften, the extra liquid will be absorbed, and the flavors will deepen during this time.
Enjoy the overnight oats cold or warmed up in the microwave! You can also stir-in a bit more milk to thin it out if you want.
Recipe Variation Ideas
- Layer your overnight oats with Biscoff cookie crumbs and coconut yogurt.

Storage & Reheating
Store your overnight oats covered and in the refrigerator for 5 days. Enjoy them cold or heat them up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. It's delicious either way!
