Speculoos Pancakes

Written by chanie on June 11th, 2013

If you’ve read this post, you know all about my (not so) little obsession with speculoos cookies right now. My┬áLotus cookie cinnamon buns with speculoos cream cheese frosting were a huge hit, and I received several emails from readers who made them to rave reviews. After making 2 batches of speculoos chex party mix (recipe coming up soon!) I was running low on my spiced shortcrust biscuit stash, with only about 10 of them left (cookies, not packages…I’m not THAT crazy).

I pulsed the cookies into crumbs, leaving me with just about a half cup of golden delicious speculoos “flour”. It was Sunday morning, and what better way to use it, than in pancakes. The hint of speculoos spice paired so perfectly with butter and maple syrup that my kids kept asking for more. The pancakes were gone before you could say speculoos.

Forgive the load of pictures here, but do you see what I see? Butter. Pure Maple Syrup. Speculoos-scented pillows of fluff. I can drool over these all day.

What am I gonna do now that I’m out of speculoos cookies?!

P.S. If you live under a rock and you STILL don’t know what speculoos is, you can read all about it in this post.

    What a great idea! I am experimenting with pancakes now too and making different “flours” but would never have thought of this. So different.

    i will order online if necessary, but i would prefer to shop locally — and encourage other stores to carry this product.

    I’d love to make those but I certainly won’t find those biscuits where I live (in Brazil). Do you replacing them for cinnamon or caramel biscuits would work? Thanks! :)
