What is a chaffle?
A chaffle is a low carb and keto friendly bread inspired option. Most chaffles are made from cheese and egg. Savory chaffles typically use more flavorful cheddar cheese, while dessert chaffles use mozzarella. You cannot taste the mozzerella cheese in the dessert chaffle.

What kind of waffle maker do I need to make a chaffle
Any type of waffle maker will work to make a chaffle. For this chaffle recipe I just used my regular waffle maker. I also have used the Dash mini waffle maker which I definitely recommend if you are chaffle crazy like me.
Can you taste the cheese in a dessert chaffle
No if you use mozzarella cheese the cheese flavor is so mild that it is completely masked. I have tested a few dessert chaffle recipes and I did think I could taste the cheese, but not with this pumpkin chaffle recipe.
Can I freeze chaffles
Yes you can freeze chaffles. I recommend putting parchment paper between each chaffle and storing in an air tight container.
How do I reheat a frozen chaffle
This is where it’s a little tricky. First you will want to let your chaffle thaw. Then for best results I recommend reheating a frozen chaffle NOT in the microwave. I like to use the oven or an air fryer.
What sweeteners can I use for this dessert chaffle
For this dessert chaffle I used Stevia as a sweetener. You can use your favorite Keto approved sweetener for this recipe. Monk fruit is another sweetener option that I have tested with this recipe.

How to make this pumpkin chaffle
First you will want to preheat your waffle maker.
Next in a bowl mix together the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, stevia, and cheese. Once combined continue to whisk it together well.
Add the pumpkin puree and egg to the mix and continue whisking until you have a well combined batter. The cheese may look like it’s not combined, but it will melt in perfectly later.
Then pour half of the batter in the waffle maker and cook until cooked throughly. The cook time will depend upon your waffle maker.
