Chocolate Chaffle Recipe
I am definitely chaffle obsessed. They are so easy to make and I typically have all the ingredients in my pantry which makes me love them that much more! This dessert chocolate chaffle is so easy and only takes six ingredients.
What is a chaffle?
A chaffle is the newest craze in the Keto world and it’s easy to see why! The original chaffle idea came from the idea of combining cheese and egg to make a keto and low carb bread replacement option. Now there are dessert chaffles and savory chaffles. So many delicious chaffle variations to try! It’s really fun to see how the chaffle craze has evolved and changed.
What ingredients are in a chaffle?
The original chaffle was cheese and egg. It seems like dessert chaffles typically use mozzarella cheese while, savory chaffles use cheddar cheese. This chocolate chaffle doesn’t use any cheese instead it uses egg, heavy whipping cream, coconut flour, and baking powder. The chocolate flavor comes from unsweetened cocoa powder and stevia extract.
Is this a chaffle or a waffle?
This chocolate chaffle could be considered more a of a waffle, since it doesn’t include the traditional cheese and egg combination. You can call it a waffle or chaffle the bottomline is that it’s a keto approved easy dessert recipe!

How to make this Keto chocolate chaffle
First you will want to preheat your waffle maker.
Next in a bowl add the egg, cocoa powder, stevia, heavy whipping cream, coconut flour, and baking powder whisk together.
Then pour the batter in the waffle maker and cook thoroughly. It shouldn’t take longer than a few minutes depending on your waffle maker.
Let it cool off for about 3 minutes. This is important because you want it to get firmer for a more crispy chaffle.
Serve with your favorite dessert toppings or you can eat it plain!
