4 Ingredient Cookie Butter Muffins

These shortcut muffins are just four ingredients and full of cookie butter flavor.

I had this intention to make proper muffins. You know ones with flour, butter, eggs, etc. And then I got lazy, so I made these easy ones instead. It’s been a long week. I’m still not completely over the jet lag. I’m usually quite good with handling time change. I was fine traveling to the East Coast and also fine traveling to Europe. But this 15 hour time change has been rough.

These muffins though, I was able to make even in my blurry tired state. They are super easy. And they taste pretty darn good too. But then, anything with cookie butter must taste good right? I really do love cookie butter.

Another thing I’m currently loving is my new customized serving board. You might have seen it in the background of a few of my other posts, but I wanted to take a moment to highlight it. The board comes from Black Canyon Woodworks, a company that specializes in handcrafted cutting board which can be customized and personalized with engravings. I was sent a complimentary one to review and I really love it.

Here’s the board with the cinnamon roll muffins I made last month.

You can choose from different styles and engrave writing on the front and the back. I got mine engraved with “Kirbie’s Cravings”. The wood board is gorgeous and huge. It’s thick, sturdy, solid wood, and the one I chose is a beautiful walnut wood. I’ve been using mine to serve drinks, cupcakes, muffins, etc. My friends who have seen it get a kick out of seeing the personalization. It definitely makes a nice unique gift, especially if you have a friend who loves to cook or host parties. You can learn more about them and their products here.

And if you’re in the mood for a treat without a ton of work, try out these easy muffins! If you want a really easy cake you should try my cookie butter cake, too. You only need three ingredients.

  • 1/2 cup creamy cookie butter I used Biscoff spread
  • 1  tsp baking powder
  • 4  large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line your muffin tin with cupcake/muffin liners.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add ingredients. Mix with a whisk until smooth, uniform batter forms.
  • Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter. Bake for about 22-24 minutes, until muffin tops puff up, look completely cooked (no longer liquidy or jiggly), and knife inserted comes out clean. Muffins will initially puff up like souffles. If you remove them before they are finished cooking they will deflate significantly. If you remove them after they are cooked, they should only deflate slightly. To decorate, you can make a small slit in the center and put half a biscoff cookie in each one.

  1. Can I use chunky cookiee butter?

  2. I used Applesauce instead of eggs and they completely sunk to nothing. 

    • This recipe needs the eggs to work. There are some recipes when you can swap applesauce for eggs but not this type of recipe where the eggs are what gives the muffins structure.

      • I made these today and they came out with a weird gelatinous texture, no beautiful aroma of biscoff cookies. It smelled like eggs. I still tried them and they didn’t have any sort of sweet taste to them or any detection that there was cookie butter as an ingredient. I even added granola and m&ms to mine in hopes to give the muffins a more complex flavor and texture profile. I don’t know what happened but I guess the m&ms just melted into the batter as I couldn’t detect them either lol I wouldn’t say these are bad they just don’t taste like anything you put in them. They don’t really taste like anything at all. I was disappointment I wasted half a jar of really expensive cookie butter for nothing. I ended up chopping up some strawberries and melting some cookie butter drizzled on top to make them look better ( adding granola and m&ms made them look like they were from outer space ? ? ?) 
        Anyway won’t make them again. 

      • We’re sorry you didn’t enjoy them but we haven’t had the same experience that you describe. Wondering if you fully mixed the batter to incorporate the eggs?

  3. You’re muffins’ ingredients is surprisingly simple and i love it. I’m a terrible baker. I just freak out whenever i see a long list of ingredients. You’re post courage me to try it. Stay tuned for my beautiful muffins. 

  4. Wow, these look amazing! I love how creative you get with your muffins. Before, I thought muffins could not survive without flour, milk, etc. 

    • it doesnt taste quite the same as standard muffins, but they taste like cakes even without the flour, milk, etc
