Biscoff Banana Bread

So, the other night Jordan and I were having cuddle time on the couch and all of a sudden we were talking about how one gets a baby. One minute she’s hugging me and poking me and the next she drops the bomb on me:

“Mommy, how does the baby get in the mommy’s tummy?”


This is when I wish that children’s memories started from birth. Because she and I have had this discussion before. When she was 3 she was begging every single day for a sibling. We eventually settled on telling her it wasn’t going to happen because we had wished so hard for her that our wishers broke. That satisfied her, and I only got a few calls from friends’ parents asking what the heck a “wisher” was.

Fast forward almost 5 years and she’s a little more mature. And she didn’t remember what a wisher was either. Drat!

Thanks to some of her older friends, or the older siblings of her friends, her questions were a little more…giggly than I expected. As in, she wanted (needed) me to tell her a little something more specific.


I guess she had been having conversations about two mommies with one of her friends which led us to a discussion of adoption and science. When I said that some parents have babies with the help of a doctor, you know, like her, she had no clue what I was talking about, because 3 was a loooong time ago.

I explained about love, and about how some people have so much love but babies still don’t come, and how then they can go to a doctor who takes the boy part and the girl part and makes a baby, and puts it in the mommy. To which she replied, “So, I was made by science?”

I swear, sometimes she is too smart for her own good.

When she asked me how they got the mommy and the daddy part, I explained about shots and doctors and hoped she would forget about the daddy part. She did, thank goodness.

Then she went off to bed and I ate my weight in comfort food because ohmygodshe’sgrowingup and holyheckwhat’snext.

To me, banana bread is an ultimate comfort food. My mom made it as long as I can remember and it’s one of my favorite things to make.

Add Biscoff (aka Cookie Butter) and white chocolate to the mix and OMG you bring the comfort level about 300 times higher.

For, you know, when your kid asks you about babies. And you want to crawl under the couch instead of answering her.

I loved this bread. It was sweet and full of banana flavor. The cookie butter/Biscoff flavor was slight but still there. The white chocolate just topped off the overwhelming awesomeness of this.

For some reason my oven baked weird this time – the bread browned quickly and the center didn’t firm up along the top. But that’s okay – I like that sweet gooey spot along the ridge of the bread. It’s my absolute favorite part of banana bread. If you like yours more done, you may want to lower your oven temperature a little, or, if the bread browns too quickly, tent the pan with foil. That will help it from getting too dark before you’re ready to take it from the oven.

There are so many versions of banana bread. I’ve made several. Every blogger I know has 2 or 25 versions in their arsenal. But that’s okay. Because banana bread is so amazing, we need a new version for every day.

{Also, I usually have enough brown bananas to make it every day. I’m not alone, right?}

Biscoff Banana Bread

Biscoff Banana Bread


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Biscoff spread or Cookie Butter
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tired bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons sour milk (To make sour milk: adding 1 teaspoon white vinegar to the milk and let it sit for 5 minutes. You need a total of 7 tablespoons of liquid (milk + vinegar).)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips + 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray your loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Cream oil, Biscoff, greek yogurt, and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer (and hand mixer is okay too).
  3. Add the bananas, eggs, sour milk, and baking soda to a blender. Mix until liquefied.
  4. Pour half of the banana mixture into the butter mixture with 1 cup of flour and mix until just combined. Repeat with the rest of the liquid and flour. Do not overmix!
  5. Place white chocolate chips in a small bowl and toss wtih 1 teaspoon flour. Gently fold into bread mixture. Pour into loaf pan. Bake approximately 50-60 minutes. The center will still be gooey. Bake a little longer if you prefer it more done. If it starts to brown to quickly on top, cover loosely with foil during baking.
