The Best Ever Chocolate Chaffle Recipe

Pinterest Hidden Image

It’s no secret that chaffles are my favorite keto food. I’ve made quite a few chocolate chaffles already on this blog, but this one right here? This is the best chocolate chaffle recipe ever. You’ve got to try it.

These are soft yet firm, not too sweet, and with the perfect blend of cocoa powder and almond flour to give them just the right flavor. I also used cream cheese in this recipe because it’s my favorite cheese to use in sweet chaffle recipes. It gives off a nice texture that’s soft and pliable instead of a crunchy finish.

I finally bought a Dash Mini Waffle Maker to make my chaffles, and holy cow, why did I wait so long? It truly is the perfect little machine to give you cute little round waffles that are the perfect proportion every time. If you need help with portion control, get one.

I will be buying a second regular round-shaped Dash Mini so that I can whip up a big batch when I need to. These waffles freeze very well. All you need to do is stick them in an air fryer to crisp them right up without any sogginess.

Everyone has an air fryer by now, right?

What You Need to Make the Best Chocolate Chaffle

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • two tbsp sugar-free cocoa powder (I used this one)
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp erythritol
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of pink salt
  • 1 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

I recommend placing everything in a blender or using a handheld immersion blender, as I do for all my cream cheese chaffle recipes. Even if you soften the cream cheese beforehand, it doesn’t like to play well and will be difficult to mix in completely.

The blender eliminates chunks of cream cheese in your waffle.

I also recommend placing these on a cooling rack for a few minutes when you remove them from the waffle iron. This allows them to firm up without becoming soggy or limp, as chaffles made with cream cheese are very soft and cake-like in texture.

Feel free to add sugar-free chocolate chips to these to make a delicious keto double chocolate chip waffle.

This recipe made 7 mini waffles for me, though there was overspill on my first two attempts, so I’m sure you’ll be able to make 8 if you’re more careful.
