Cream Cheese Coconut Flour Chaffles Two Ways (Sweet & Savory)

Pinterest Hidden Image

Coconut flour chaffles are great substitutes for bread! They tend to come out soft and have the texture of freshly baked white bread, especially if they are 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.

I used the same recipe but 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, perfect for a single serving.

Tips to Make The Best Cream Cheese Coconut Flour Chaffles

When working with cream cheese, you’ll want to use a food scale to portion out the correct amount. This is an excellent scale that picks up every ounce and gram to help you track your macros.

Once you’ve measured out your cream cheese, soften it in the microwave and then use a personal blender, hand mixer, or food processor to incorporate it 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.

Bonus: it can also be used as a milk frother which you will appreciate if you make bulletproof coffee or lattes.

    Monique, thank you!!!! I tried a lot of chaffle recipes. This is the best one so far. Adding melted butter really enhances the flavor.

    1. Thank you, so happy you enjoyed

  4. I made these today, I blended everything in the blender, quick and easy amd they were so moist, I was surprised since I hear a lot of coconut flour recipes tend to be dryer.

    Can un-eaten chaffles be frozen?

    This is life changing for me! I have thyroid issues so I’m gluten free and I can now have sandwiches, and hamburgers, and breakfast waffles that actually taste delicious and are low carb! No egg taste to these, even my super picky daughter tried them and gave her approval! Perfect to use when needing a hamburger bun or bread for a sandwich. We make up a batch and keep them in the fridge. I can’t thank you enough for posting this recipe!

    1. This makes me so happy Vicki! Really happy you enjoy them

  7. Can this be made as a pancake rather than a waffle?

  8. Cindy Beville says:

    This is my favorite recipe. I helps cure my sweet tooth, while I’m on keto. I cook them on my mini waffle maker. I also cook breakfast sausage in my waffle maker and make a “McGriddle.”

  9. These are excellent waffles. They are light and moist. I made 17 mini waffles 1.5×4.5 inches. Children love them. Now this is our favourite. Thanks for the recipe.

  10. These are perfect! I’m so happy to have found this.
