Make A Biscoff Spread Sandwich As A Peanut Butter Substitue
Page 5: Use Biscoff Spread Instead Of Peanut Butter For Sandwiches & Snacks
CAPSULE REPORT: This is the fifth page of recipe ideas for spéculoos spread, known in the U.S. as biscoff spread. Here, a terrific subsitute for a peanut butter sandwich. Click on the black links below to visit other pages.
Biscoff spread (spéculoos spread) is a delicious peanut butter alternative that contains no nuts. It’s delicious for everyone who likes a bit of spice (the principal flavor is ginger) in a creamy spread. In fact, the kids may like it even more when they know that it’s made of ground gingersnap cookies.
It’s a home run lunch box sandwich if your school system doesn’t allow peanut butter and other peanut products. And half or whole, this sandwich is a welcome snack.
