Cassava is an important crop in the tropics. The use of cassava flour and pigeon pea flour in the manufacture of biscuit is uncommon. The chemical and nutritional evaluation of biscuit processed from cassava and pigeon pea flour was investigated. Commercial and cassava based biscuit were evaluated for chemical and nutritive properties. Sensory evaluation was done by a ten member panel randomly selected from male and female adults. One hundred percent cassava biscuit was significantly higher than other biscuit samples in Hydro-cyanide (HCN) at P<0.05. The crude protein and ash content of 30% cassava pigeon pea biscuit was significantly higher than other biscuit samples. Commercial biscuit was higher in crude fat (13.54%), crude fibre (0.85%) and moisture content (4.8%). Sensory evaluation showed that commercial biscuit, 30% cassava-pigeon pea biscuit and 100% cassava biscuit were not significantly different from each other in colour. Higher scores were given to 30% cassava-pigeon biscuit. The taste, texture, flavour and general acceptability of 100% cassava biscuit and commercial biscuit were not significantly different from each other. Generally, acceptable biscuit was processed from 100% cassava flour and 30% cassava pigeon flour. Thirty percent cassava pigeon biscuit gave better nutrient attributes and sensory scores than commercial biscuit.
