You won’t believe how delicious and easy to make these Keto Chocolate Chaffles are!
Start to finish, the total time is 15 minutes and most of that is cooking time. If you have a waffle iron and love chocolate then these Keto Chocolate Chaffles are for you!
The Keto world is crazy for chaffle’s right now and the Keto Chocolate Chaffle is so easy and delicious.
Even the Non-Keto kids love this one.
If you don’t have a waffle iron this is the one I like….
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.
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.
Strawberries & Keto
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!
