Keto Chocolate Chaffles are the sweet version of the sensational savory, crispy chaffles we’ve been making in our Dash mini-waffle maker. It’s a sweet, chocolatey, low carb waffle.

If you haven’t tried one of these tasty low-carb waffles, you might be wondering what it is exactly. A chaffle is made with cheese and egg. It’s basically a cheese waffle. The cheese replaces flour and helps the waffle get crispy without adding extra carbs.

Wonder Bread Chaffles are a great substitute for bread so you can have a breakfast sandwich or a quick lunch grab and go. These Chocolate Chaffles are meant to be a sweet version that you can make for breakfast or as a dessert.

If you’re worried that chocolate and cheese is going to taste gross together, there’s no worries here. This recipe uses cream cheese, which gives a nice crunch to the waffle, but doesn’t interfere with the chocolatey taste.

» If you haven’t tried a regular chaffle, here’s our basic chaffle and wonder bread chaffle recipes.

Is Chocolate Keto?

Unsweetened cocoa powder is very low in carbohydrates and can be used in keto-friendly recipes to add chocolate flavor without the added sugar.

Dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70% or higher) is lower in sugar and higher in fat, making it another better option for a keto diet.

The higher the cocoa content, the lower the sugar content, the better it is for those on a keto diet. While chocolate can be included in a keto diet, it should be enjoyed in moderation.

What You Need to Make Chaffles

Ingredients for chaffles

The basic recipe for a chocolate chaffle is very simple. You’re going to need 8 ingredients:

  • Egg – take the egg out of the fridge to bring it to room temp before cooking. This will help the waffle cook through and get crispy.
  • Almond flour You can also use coconut flour to achieve similar results, but cut it down by 3/4 the amount.
  • Butter – You can use salted or unsalted butter, per your preference.
  • Cream cheese – also take the cream cheese out of the fridge to reach room temperature before you try to stir it into the batter so it doesn’t clump up.
  • Sugar substitute I use Allulose because I don’t like the cooling effect of Erythritol.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder – I use this cocoa powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Baking powder – Make sure your baking powder isn’t outdated to add the most fluffiness to your waffles.

I use allulose as a sugar substitute. You can use Swerve, monkfruit, Erythritol or Xylitol. It’s really up to you. The reason I use allulose is because it’s a no calorie no carb sweetener like erythritol, but it doesn’t have the cooling effect. I get allulose directly through Wholesome Yum. I think you’ll really like it, especially if you also don’t like the cooling effect.

Equipment You Need

You will also need a waffle maker. There’s a specific waffle maker that became the top choice for making these. It’s called a Dash Mini Maker. It makes one 4″ waffle. You don’t need this specific one, but it is super convenient to use, and just the right size for sandwiches!

How to Make Keto Chocolate Chaffles

It’s very simple to make these chocolate chaffles, but they turn out better with a few tips, so read on to get the full scoop.

If you’re using a dash, you would use 1/3 of the batter at a time to make 3 chaffles. It’s one serving or can be split up into two dessert waffles, if you want a smaller serving.

If you’re using a regular Belgium waffle maker, you’ll likely need to use the entire batter mixture for 1 waffle, which is 1 serving.

Start by preheating the waffle maker, so it’s nice and hot when you add the batter.

Stir together all of the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the batter into the waffle maker and close the lid. It takes about 3-5 minutes to cook through. Don’t remove it too early or it won’t be crispy.

Tips & Additional Advice

We recommend adding 2 tablespoon of almond flour and 1/4 tsp baking powder. The almond flour isn’t necessary, but it gives the chaffle more texture and less of an eggy flavor, which some people don’t like.

You can use coconut flour instead of almond flour, but you only need to use 2 teaspoons of coconut flour, because it soaks up more liquid. Coconut flour works well with these sweet waffles because the flavor combo is good.

How to Serve Chocolate Chaffles

There are so many ways to enjoy these chocolate chaffles. You can just pour on some keto syrup or dust them with powdered sugar substitute. You can add some sugar-free chocolate chips to the batter for an extra gooey waffle.

You can serve them as a dessert, which I love doing because you can pile them up with strawberries, nuts and whipped cream. Try topping them with whipped cottage cheese for a boost of protein.

How To Store Leftover Chocolate Chaffles

These chocolate chaffles are best eaten immediately. However, if you need to store them:

  1. Allow your chocolate chaffles to cool completely on a wire rack to prevent condensation and sogginess when you store them.
  2. If you have multiple chaffles, separate them with parchment paper or wax paper to prevent sticking.
  3. Place the cooled chaffles in an airtight container. You can stack them in layers if needed, but make sure to separate the layers with parchment paper or a similar non-stick material.
  4. Store the chocolate chaffles in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. This is the best option for short-term storage.
  5. If you want to store them for a longer period, freeze the chaffles individually or in stacks with parchment paper between them. Place them in a resealable freezer bag or an airtight container suitable for the freezer. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.

How Many Carbs in Chocolate Chaffles

Each chaffle has 2 net grams of carbs. That means you can regulate how many carbs you’re eating by deciding how many chaffles to eat in a sitting. Even if you stack up 3 chaffles for an over the top dessert, it will only be 6 net grams of carbs. That’s WAY lower than a regular chocolate waffle would have.

Variations to Try

There are many different add-ins and slight variations of chocolate chaffles you can try.

Cinnamon Sugar Chaffles

To make sweet chaffles, add 1/2 tsp sugar substitute, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1/4 tsp cinnamon to the batter.

You can serve these with extra cinnamon/sugar substitute sprinkled on top, or with sugar-free syrup or chocolate glaze.

Peanut Butter Chaffles

You can make peanut butter chaffles by just adding 1-2 teaspoons of no sugar added peanut butter to the batter. You could also add no-sugar peanut butter chips instead of peanut butter.

Strawberry Chocolate Chaffles

Probably our favorite chaffle to make is a strawberry chocolate chaffle. You can add 2 fresh strawberries, mashed up, to the batter, or add 1 teaspoon of sugar-free strawberry syrup to the batter.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many calories are in 2 chaffles?

For this recipe, each waffle has 2 net grams of carbs. That means 2 chaffles have a total of 4 net carbs.

What sweets can you have on keto?

Keto-friendly sweet options include Stevia, Erythritol, and Monk Fruit (These are natural, non-caloric sweeteners that do not raise blood sugar levels). Dark chocolate with at least 70-85% cocoa content tends to be lower in sugar and can be enjoyed in moderation on keto. Berries, like strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, are relatively low in carbohydrates and can be consumed on the keto diet.

What is the difference between a waffle and a chaffle?

A waffle is made with flour, egg, and water, while a chaffle is made typically with almond flour and cheese, to take the place of the gluten in the flour which is what gives a waffle it’s chewiness.
