I’m not sure when I first discovered cookie butter, but I’ve since made it a mission to take advantage of its wonderful spiced flavor as much as possible. And it’s a perfect addition to banana muffins!

The combination of cookie butter and bananas is a match made in baking heaven. The spices from the cookie butter make an ordinary batch of banana muffins something really special. The cookie butter is not an overwhelming flavor, but rather a more subtle approach that’s really just lovely.

For those of you unfamiliar with cookie butter, it’s a spread made from spiced cookies called speculaas. You may be most familiar with the brand Biscoff. You can find cookie butter alongside the other spreads like peanut butter and Nutella. There are several brands available, including Lotus Biscoff, Roland, and Trader Joe’s.

Cookie butter’s dark color contributes to the darker than normal color of these muffins. I love the look of them. Somehow that darker color makes me think of deeper, richer flavors, which is the case with the addition of cookie butter.
