Ingredients for Sweet Chaffles
As always, here is a quick overview of the ingredients used in our keto chaffles. For the complete recipe, just scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Eggs, always size large eggs for chaffles.
- Almond flour, Baking powder, Sweetener- I used brown sugar monkfruit
- Mozzarella- shredded and Cream cheese
- Vanilla extract and Cinnamon- this is optional but I really enjoyed the flavor!
How do you make chaffles with cream cheese?
First, preheat your mini waffle maker. Once warmed up, spray with nonstick spray. Whisk your eggs, then add your shredded cheese, softened cream cheese, almond flour, baking powder, sweetener, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Mix until the cream cheese is smoothly incorporated throughout. Fill the waffle maker 2/3rd full- this is a little over 1/8 cup. Be careful to not overfill. Allow to cook 4-6 minutes, or until the steam stops coming out of the machine.
How do chaffles get crispy?
Most savory chaffles (like these Pepperoni Pizza Chaffles) crisp up as you let them cool. Sweet chaffles have more cream cheese and less mozzarella, which makes them more soft. To make these sweet chaffles crispy, just place into the Air Fryer or your toaster.
How to use chaffles
Use these sweet chaffles as a breakfast waffle- top with keto whipped cream, sugar free chocolate chips or sugar free syrup. These could also be great at the base for a peanut butter sandwich, or a peanut butter and jelly. Use this recipe for a Basic Keto Chaffle for all sorts of things! These Keto BBQ Stacks, Chaffle Pizza or this Chicken Bacon Ranch Chaffle are all great ways to use this recipe.
