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.

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
  • 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

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 add 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.

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.
