Crunchy Speculoos Toast

Crunchy Speculoos Toast

I have a sweet tooth; I think it’s primarily why I’m so enamoured with breakfast foods – as they tend to be on the sweeter side. It’s the only meal of the day with this many sweet choices; muffins, pastries, pancakes, cereal, porridges, jams, syrups and chocolate spreads, etc., any other time of the day, these would be dessert.

I have a sweet tooth and that’s my weakness, so please indulge me and let’s agree that crunchy speculoos butter can be ‘part of a nutritious breakfast’ – because my mother on the other hand doesn’t think so.

I brought a jar of crunchy speculoos from vacation last year and kept it for months after I discovered that Trader Joe’s had started making them too. I was going to do a taste test but never got around to it, soon I noticed it was fast approaching its expiration date…

And that is how this crunchy speculoos toast came about; crunchy speculoos is just like the regular cookie butter, but with specks of cookie, cinnamon-ey with a bit of crunch.

We made baked oatmeal a few mornings, but on most days until it ran out, we spread it on our toasts – like sweet creamy gingerbread cookies on toast.

An exciting change from plain buttered toast, throw in some fruits, nuts and orange juice and it’s a complete breakfast.

    I’ve definitely got a sweet tooth too. I’ve managed to tame it a bit over the years and now get excited about savoury foods as well, but when I was little I would have skipped meals and just eaten dessert if I was allowed!
    I love speculoos & banana on toast as a nice change from my usual PB.

    you make me want to go back to Holland to look for it….or perform a kitchen hack by making my own 🙂

    What a gorgeous spread. Save me some of the mandarins/clementines/tangerines. They look gorgeous too!
