Three words for you… Cookie. Butter. Latte.
This is one of my favorite lattes around. Between the fresh, bold espresso and the cookie butter flavor… you’ll be in heaven.
Why you’ll love this cooke butter latte
So many flavors – Between the fresh espresso and the deep caramel flavor in cookie butter, you’ll be shocked at how many flavors are in this simple cookie butter latte!
Incredibly easy to make – This latte can be completed in three simple steps (brew espresso + steam milk and cookie butter together + pour into a glass and enjoy)!
A delicious change from a traditional latte – I love a good latte, but I’m not someone that enjoys drinking (or eating) the same thing every day. This cookie butter latte recipe allows me to change up my morning latte whenever I want to!
To make your biscoff cookie butter latte, you’ll need:
- Milk of choice – I’m a big oat milk lover but any milk will work well with this latte! Almond milk, coconut milk, or whole milk are all great choices.
- Cookie butter spread – Pretty much an essential ingredient in this cookie butter latte recipe. Any brand will do, but I love Trader Joe’s cookie butter! Of course, Biscoff cookie butter is also a great choice.
- Espresso – For this cookie butter latte, I use 2 shots of freshly brewed espresso.
- Biscoff cookies – A fun addition to your latte! Feel free to crush them for garnish on top or dip a cookie (or two) into your latte as you enjoy it.
There are quite a few variations below that will enhance your cookie butter latte, but these are the basic ingredients you need to make a kick ass latte.
How to make a biscoff cookie butter latte
With your espresso machine, make a double shot of espresso.
If your espresso machine has a milk frother/steamer attachment, use it to heat the milk. If it doesn’t, feel free to heat the milk over medium heat on the stovetop. Add the cookie butter to your warmed milk and stir to combine.
Pour the milk mixture into a cup followed by the espresso. Top with any leftover foam, some whipped cream, crushed Speculoos cookies, and enjoy!
How to elevate your cookie butter latte
A cookie butter latte is great on its own but there are a few ways you can elevate it! Below are some of my favorite ways to shake up my cookie butter latte recipe.
To froth or not to froth
A perfect froth will transform your cookie butter latte from great to exceptional. Your ideal froth is creamy, consistent, and adds such a luxurious feel to your latte.
To ensure that you make the perfect froth, you’ll need to have the temperature between 145-150 degrees Fahrenheit.
Also… did you know that you can sweeten the froth to add some additional flavor to your cookie butter latte? I would recommend using things like…
- Sugar syrup
- Vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)
- Maple syrup
- Coconut sugar
Spice it up
Adding spices to your cookie butter latte will take its flavor profile to the next level! If you want to add some spices to your latte, I’d recommend using:
- Star anise
If you’re going to add ground spices to your cookie butter latte, I recommend adding them to the hot espresso in order to make sure they fully dissolve as well as infuse the flavor. You can sprinkle them on top of your cookie butter latte too!
More toppings, please!
There are almost too many amazing topping options. Here are some of my favorites:
- Whipped cream (coconut whipped cream tastes amazing with the cookie butter flavor).
- Crushed Biscoff cookies
- Caramel sauce
- Melted cookie butter (especially the melted Speculoos cookie butter from Trader Joe’s)
All of the above are great, but I’m sure you can find more decadent toppings to use!

What Starbucks drink tastes like cookie butter?
Want to order a cookie butter latte from a coffee shop instead of making it at home? Feel free to order a cookie butter latte from Starbucks!
Here’s what you’ll need to say in order to get a cookie butter latte from Starbucks…
Grande iced chai latte with two pumps of brown sugar syrup and oat milk.
The taste is almost identical to a cookie butter latte recipe you’d make at home!
How can I ensure my cookie butter fully melts into my latte?
To ensure your cookie butter fully melts into your latte, make sure your coffee is hot and freshly brewed, then stir in the cookie butter until it’s completely melted before adding it to the coffee.
Do I need an espresso maker to make this cookie butter latte recipe?
You don’t – but the taste may be different if your espresso isn’t freshly brewed. If you purchase pre-brewed espresso from the store and want a hot cookie butter latte, I’d add it to the steamed milk to get warm!
You can also make an iced cookie butter latte with cold espresso, cold milk, ice cubes, and some melted cookie butter. Or, use some cold brew coffee!Print
