These fudgy vegan Biscoff Brownies are decadent and delicious, topped with swirls of Biscoff spread and crunchy broken biscuits.
🍴 Why you will love this recipe
These fudgy vegan brownies couldn't be easier to make, but are absolutely delicious! No food mixer or gadgets required, just a bowl, a spoon and plenty of Biscoff.
If you haven't tried Biscoff (cookie butter), stop what you're doing and get some now - it is incredible stuff.... seriously addictive. BUT if you can't get hold of it or don't fancy it, you could substitute in all sorts of alternatives - peanut butter, vegan chocolate spread, or just leave off the toppings and make straightforward choc-chip brownies instead.
Crunchy or smooth? It is entirely your choice - use whichever you prefer on toast!
📝 What you need
Biscoff Biscuits are also easy to find in most supermarkets. Both the plain biscuits and the Biscoff Cream Sandwich biscuits are vegan, but I find the plain biscuits work better in these brownies.
Chocolate Chips Choose dark chocolate chips / chunks and do check the ingredients, some contain milk.
Soya Milk acts as the egg replacer here. Use an unsweetened soya milk, (these brownies are very much sweet enough already!). Soya works best - you could use an oat or nut milk instead but due to its higher protein content you will always get the best results with soya.
Rapeseed Oil or any other flavourless oil (like sunflower or vegetable oil, but not olive or coconut) gives these brownies their incredibly moist, fudgy texture.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the wet ingredients together.
Tip the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until fully combined and glossy. Stir through the chocolate chips.
Press the mixture into your tin. Melt the biscoff spread in the microwave.
Drizzle the spread all over the brownie mixture, (it doesn't need to be neat!), then press down broken pieces of biscoff biscuits (or whole if you prefer) into the mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes then leave to cool fully in the tin.
You can customise this recipe in all sorts of ways to your own taste:
- Stir broken biscuits through the brownie mix to give the brownies a biscoff crunch all the way through.
- Crush the biscuits for the topping to create a Biscoff-crumble style brownie.
- Use Oreos or Jammy Dodgers instead to personalise the brownies to your favourite biscuits.
- Use vegan white chocolate chips or chunks for some colour variation
- Use peanut butter instead of Biscoff spread, and top with unsalted peanuts.
🔪 Top Tips & FAQs
Chill the brownies before slicing to get nice neat and clean lines, but if you have time, let them get back to room temperature before serving.
Use a bread knife or other serrated knife to slice neatly through the biscuit layer and the fudginess underneath!
Adjust the baking time to suit your brownie preference - 5 minutes less in the oven makes a very moist, fudgy brownie. 5 minutes more gives more of a cake-y texture.
Yes, they are safe to freeze but the biscuits on top may go a bit soggy when defrosted. If you are making a batch specifically to freeze you might prefer to leaf the biscuits off the top and just have the Biscoff swirl.
Two elements make for a fudgy brownie - the fat-to-flour ratio and the baking time. This recipe is on the fudgy side, so if you prefer a cake-y brownie you could reduce the oil by 20ml and leave the brownies in the oven for an extra 5 minutes.

- Bake the brownies for 35-40 minutes until just set in the centre, but still soft. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin.
- When fully cooled, remove from the tin. At this point you can chill the brownies to make slicing easier, (but bring them back to room temperature to serve). Slice into small-ish squares and enjoy!
