Coconut flour chaffles are great substitutes for bread! Chaffles made with coconut flour tend to come out soft with a texture of a freshly baked white bread, especially if made with cream cheese.
This chaffle recipe uses a balanced mixture of cream cheese, coconut flour, and eggs. It makes a firm chaffle that is light enough in taste but dense enough to hold together a sandwich or heavy toppings.
It’s also a great recipe for a French Toast Chaffle as it soaks up flavors perfectly. If you’re new to chaffles then check out the basic chaffle recipe here. This recipe features a simple cream cheese coconut flour chaffle that I served for dinner topped with roast beef and melted cheese.
From the same recipe, I simply added a few more ingredients to make a sweet chaffle to enjoy after dinner. It was a big hit with my little one.
Who doesn’t love chaffles for dinner?

Best Chaffle Makers
I used my Black and Decker waffle iron to make this chaffle. It gives me a full-sized waffle for a complete meal. You can top each piece individually or make two awesome slider type burgers or sandwiches with each half.
If you prefer a smaller waffle to help with portion control, the Dash Mini Waffle maker is great! It’s affordable and makes the cutest little round waffles that are the perfect single serving.
Tips to Make The Best Cream Cheese Chaffles
When working with cream cheese, you’ll want to use a food scale to portion out the correct amount of cheese. This is an excellent food scale that picks up every ounce and gram to help you track your macros.
Once you’ve measured out your cream cheese, soften it up in the microwave and then use a personal blender, hand mixer or food processor to get it all incorporated with the other ingredients.
It can be difficult to completely incorporate cream cheese into your chaffle recipe so I like to blend it out for a smoother texture. If you prefer the manual method, this handy upright semi-automatic whisk is a great tool to use. Bonus, it can also be used as a milk frother which you will appreciate if you make bulletproof coffee or lattes.
