pili nut chocolate dessert waffles


Third in our series of recipes using our most favorite nut…the scrumptious pili nut! We wanted to have a little fun with this recipe and besides, dessert waffles are already dreamy and adding pili nuts to the batter makes them even dreamier! Stack these babies, add a scoop (or two) of your favorite ice cream and a drizzle or two of cocoa pili nut butter and chocolate and you’ve got a super fun dessert. Perfect party food…have a dessert bar and let friends and family assemble their own, how fun is that! Make a bunch up ahead of time and once they’re cooled, freeze them…dessert prep done!

  1. Add ingredients to high speed blender in the order listed and blend until all those luscious pili nuts are ground up smooth – you should have a very nice batter once it’s all done. Little thicker than a cake batter.
  2. Heat up waffle iron and cook according to manufacturers directions. We like to top our waffles with a few more chopped pili nuts before closing the lid! Ads the perfect texture to the waffle.
  3. As waffles finish, keep warm on a rack in your oven as you make the rest of them, this helps keep them crispy.
  4. Top with your favorite ice cream, drizzle some cacoa Pili Nut Butter, chocolate drizzle and fresh fruit…all optional, but we’d suggest it! Enjoy!!!


  1. Looks yummy

  2. My grands can’t have nuts. Can you make this recipe without them? Is there any other substitute I need to do if I leave them out? Looking for a waffle recipe using Cassava flour. Thanks

    • Hi there – you could try making the recipe & subbing sunflower seeds for the pili nuts? I’ve not tried that variation, but might work well. You could always try a half batch & see how you like them. Hope that helps! ~Michelle
