Guinness Waffles - Happy St.Patrick

Dessert Health Pistachios Recipe

Today is the day when the Irish celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, St.Patrick, and drink copious amounts of Guinness! I’ve created a recipe that screams to be eaten on St.Patricks Day. These waffles are light and fluffy but have the rich flavour of Guinness and pistachio butter…honesty, these two ingredients are a match made in heaven!

Fear not all the people out there who don’t have waffle makers! You can always make American pancakes out of the batter, just another 2 tbsp of flour to make the batter thicker.

Makes 4 delicious waffles (serves 2)


200g Flour
2tbsp Borna Smooth 100% Pistachio Butter
3tbsp Agave syrup
150ml Guinness
50ml Almond milk
1/2 tsp Baking powder

To Serve
2tbsp Borna Pistachio Butter
5g Pistachio Kernels
5g Raspberries
1/2 tbsp Agave syrup


♥ If you need to pre-heat your waffle marker then this is the time to do so (set to medium to high heat)

♥ Sieve the flour into the bowl, add the pistachio butter, agave syrup, Guinness, milk and mix together to make a thick batter

♥ Add the baking powered and mix again

♥ Grease the waffle iron with oil (you’ll need to do this for every waffle). Watch for the hot irons, we don’t want any burnt fingers!

♥ Spoon the batter into the waffle maker, making sure you don’t overfill it as you’ll end up with an overflow of mess

♥ The waffles will take roughly 3 mins to cook, make sure they’re crispy before you take them out (no one likes a soggy waffle)

♥ To keep your waffles nice and crispy pop them on a cooling rack while you cook the rest

♥ Once all the waffles are cooked, stack them and top with pistachio butter, kernels, agave syrup & raspberries
