Hawaiian Waffles bursting with fresh pineapple, roasted macadamia nuts and sweet coconut flakes smothered in Pineapple Coconut Syrup!
Cold weather leaving you dreaming of Hawaii lately?
I had been dreaming of Hawaii – in food form – for some time and finally couldn’t wait. It was 8:30 at night and I had to make our second dinner.
Reality exceeded my dreams.
These Hawaiian Coconut Waffles are bursting with fresh pineapple, roasted macadamia nuts and sweet coconut flakes all throughout the coconut milk waffle batter – every single bite will make you want to do the hula. And if you have never roasted macadamia nuts before, they are insanely good! I seriously could eat them by the handfuls. The batter is also mixed with Greek yogurt which adds the perfect contrast to the sweet pineapple and makes the waffles super moist!
After devouring most of the waffles, I saved a few so I could take pictures of them the next morning…it was pure torture! (these aren’t those pictures – I’ll explain below – wish I would have eaten them all that night!)
Coconut syrup Recipe
And the syrup. Pineapple Coconut Syrup – every bit as delicious as it sounds – rich, creamy and sweet; made with coconut milk, brown sugar, granulated sugar and pineapple – pure ingredients, purely delicious taste. You are going to want to put this on everything!!! (including these crepes – crazy good!)
If you like coconut, pineapple and macadamia nuts, then sit back, relax and let every bite of these Hawaiian waffles transport you to paradise. Aloha!
