It does the job perfectly and it won’t break your budget.

What is a Chaffle?

Chaffles are all the rage nowadays. 

And they come in all varieties. There is savory chaffles like out Jalapeno Cheddar Chaffle.

In that case the Chaffle is cheese waffle that makes for a  crispy waffle-shaped omelet.

But now we have the Keto Chocolate Chaffle.

This one is like a looks like a waffle and tastes like a crispy, dark chocolate cake.

It has no cheese so for this one we’ll say Chaffle is from shortening of chocolate-waffle.

Recipe Tip: Ricotta Cheese

If you like chocolate-ricotta recipes try replacing two tablespoons of the almond flour in the chocolate waffle recipe with two tablespoons of ricotta cheese. Your chaffle will be moist and delicate.

Ricotta goes really well with chocolate and our Keto Chocolate Ricotta Cookies are a favorite for holidays.

Recipe Tip: Set a Timer

Most waffle irons have a sort of sensor and a light goes on to tell you that your waffles are done.

I like my waffles a little crispier so I would always just wait a minute or so after the light went out, and that works pretty well even for Keto Waffles.

Keto Oat Fiber Waffles
Oh man are you going to be happy today! These oat fiber waffles are a fantastic low carb way to start your day (or have dinner for breakfast). This recipe makes crispy and fluffy waffles just like the ones that you loved Pre-Keto. Even the Non-Keto Kids will love them! You can feel good about sharing these healthy waffles too!

But when you’re making a Chaffle, the built in timer just doesn’t go anywhere near long enough.

If your waffle maker has a timer built-in that you can set, you will want to set it for at least 10 minutes.

If your waffle iron doesn’t have a timer, just set a regular kitchen timer as soon as you close the waffle iron.

I personally have become quite dependent on Alexa. 

“Hey Alexa, set a timer for 10 minutes.”

And she responds in a pretty robot voice “10 minute timer starting now.”

Carbs in Cocoa Powder

This was a bit of a surprise to me, but in 1 tablespoon (5.4 grams) of cocoa powder there are 3.1 grams of carbohydrates. 

But more than half of this is fiber.  In one tablespoon of the unsweetened cocoa powder that I use has 1.8 grams of fiber, so the net carbs are 1.8 grams.

If you would like a little stronger/darker  chocolate flavor you can add more cocoa powder without increasing the net carbs too much.

Serving Suggestion: Keto Whipped Cream

The first one of these that I made I couldn’t wait.  I didn’t even get a plate, I just ate it right out of the waffle iron.

I was not disappointed, it was delicious. 

By the third one I had calmed down just a smidge, and considered what to put on it.

And I have to tell that the best combination that I can think of is the one in the photo – after I took the picture I enjoyed it tremendously.

I strongly recommend strawberries and whipped cream. 

Keto Whipped Cream
Whipped cream is super easy to make and so much better for you and the environment than the prepackaged stuff. You won't ever want to go back to the aerosol version once you make this...

It is true that there is no berry that goes better with chocolate than strawberries.

You may not be aware that strawberries are also a lower carb fruit. You can’t eat a plateful of them if you want to stay in Ketosis but they are a wonderful treat if you have a carb or two to spare.

That strawberry that you see in the picture has less than one net carb, and it was worth it.

That’s all for the Low Carb Chocolate Chaffle Recipe!

I hope that you enjoy this Keto Chocolate Chaffle and would love to hear your comments and variations below!

Cheers and Keto on!

Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients


  • Preheat waffle iron while you are mixing the ingredients.
  • melt butter in microwave
  • In a small mixing bowl mix all the dry ingredients. Make sure there are no clumps
  • Add egg, melted butter and cream cheese, use a rubber scraper to mix thoroughly.
  • pour the mixture in the center of greased waffle iron waffle iron and close. (flip it if you have on of those fancy Belgian waffle irons)
  • Cook until desired crispness. I usually set a timer for 10 minutes.
  • Open the waffle iron, remove and enjoy.


Coconut oil will only take about ten seconds to melt in the microwave. This recipe was made in a Belgian waffle maker. If you have a small regular waffle iron you might need to make two batches.

  1. Hi Robyn. Yes, overfilling a waffle iron can be a mess. Sorry. We have several different sized irons because I enjoy small waffles, Thom likes big Belgian Waffles and the kid likes the square waffles lol. But the good news is that the nutrition stated for this recipe is the same no matter how many chaffles you make with it.Score! I hope you enjoyed your chocolate chaffle anyway. Cheers!!!!

  2. So I used the exact recipe and used a regular waffle iron and it’s pouring out the sides. This makes wayyyyy more than one chaffle

  3. 5 stars
    Very good recipe! I wanted a recipe that wasn’t overly complicated and this fit the bill. The only change that I made was that I substituted the Erythritol with Sucralose because that is what I have on hand. I took the “strong” recommendation and added strawberries and whipped cream. It was delicious!

  4. This is exactly what I’ve been dreaming of! I’m thinking of topping it off with a bit of peanut butter. Can’t wait to make them! Thanks!
