If you’re into easy keto desserts, give this brownie chocolate chaffle recipe a try! These grain free waffles are ready in minutes and are a great breakfast or easy low carb snack!

What is a Chaffle?

A chaffle is a low carb and keto-friendly waffle that is made from eggs and cheese. You can get the most simple chaffle recipe here. These are grain free waffles!

Chaffles are made on a mini waffle maker. If you make them using a larger waffle maker, they don’t really crisp up the same way because a full-size waffle maker is too deep.

Are Chaffles Keto Friendly?

Single serve brownie chaffles that are sugar-free and gluten-free

Yes! Chaffles are keto friendly. They’re made with keto-friendly ingredients and are completely gluten-free. Not all chaffle recipes include almond flour, but almond flour is a great low carb flour.

This whole recipe for chocolate chaffles is 5g net carbs. The recipe (made using a mini waffle maker) makes 3 chaffles.

Eggs and cheese are staples on a ketogenic diet. Many recipes include these, therefore, most low carb kitchens have these ingredients on hand!

Does unsweetened cocoa powder have carbs? Yes, cocoa powder does have carbs but there is also fiber in cocoa powder. 1.5 tbsp of cocoa powder has 5g carbs and 3g fiber, this means it has 2g net carbs (carbs – fiber = net carbs).

Tips for making these Low Carb Protein Waffles

Finally, add in the mozzarella cheese.

Optional: You can add 2tsp of heavy cream to the brownie chaffle batter if you want a more moist brownie chocolate chaffle.

This protein waffle recipe makes about 3 chaffles. You don’t want to overfill the mini waffle maker or else you’ll waste the chaffle batter.

Pour 1/3 of the batter on the mini waffle iron to make these brownie chaffles

When cooking the chocolate waffles, allow the steam to fully escape before removing it from the waffle iron. This takes about 3 minutes.

Cool the brownie chocolate chaffle on a wire rack (or eat it, that is fine too).

How to make Chaffles Crispy

If you have tried chaffles and really enjoy a crispy chaffle, there are two things you can do.

After cooking the chaffle on the mini waffle iron, cool the chaffle on a wire rack. This allows the steam to escape both from the top and bottom. You could go a step further by toasting these waffles in a toaster oven.

You don’t want to leave the chaffle on the iron longer thinking that will make it extra crispy. You will just burn it this way. (insert thumbs down emoji)

How to Store Chaffles

Chaffles are best eaten right away but you CAN store chaffles.

Once cooled, you could store them in an air-tight container in the fridge for 2 days. Additionally, you could freeze chaffles for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container. If you’re concerned about freezer taste, you could wrap this container in foil.

How to Reheat Chaffles

The best method for reheating chaffles is by toasting them in a toaster oven or a regular toaster until heated.

If you microwave these chocolate waffles, they’ll be soggy.

    Hi Josi 😊
    These sound super yummy! I’d love to try the recipe for my dear mom, but I’m hoping they will still work as little pancakes. We don’t have a mini (or any) waffle maker. We have a toaster oven and a half-dozen-size muffin tin…
    P S: I enjoy your blog! It’s inspiring! I used to bake and now I’m learning to cook healthy treats for my mom!

    • Hi Cindy!
      I went to my kitchen to try some different methods. These do work as pancakes! Add 1tbsp of either nut milk, heavy cream, or half and half to the batter. I sprayed my pan with cooking spray and heated it to Medium. When I poured the batter in the pan, they spread a lot so make them in batches. They also take a few minutes to “set up” before they’re ready to flip. All in all, they taste delicious!! I also tried baking some in a mini silicone pan, 15 minutes on 375 in my toaster oven made for a nice fudgey brownie 🙂

        I made these as little muffins also. They came out perfectly in my regular oven. I used a metal mini muffin pan and oiled it, 375 for 15 mins, for anyone that wants to try it that way. Perfect little mini muffins. I added in some chopped walnuts and some Lily’s chocolate chips in a few and those were good also!
        The only thing I will change is using better cocoa powder, and not the old Hershey’s I had on hand.

        • Oh, I’m so glad they came out well!! Sounds perfect and a great way to use this batter! I love your addition of nuts and chocolate chips! yum!

  • I’m going to make these this evening. I do have a question about the serving size. The instructions say to put 1/3 of the batter in the waffle maker. So I assume this makes three mini waffles. So all three are considered one serving?

    So good! I tripled the batch to have extra and used some in my old mini donut maker. I will be making these regularly. Thank you so much~

    Question: the pure monk fruit sweetener I have says use: 1/64tsp in place of a Tbsp. Would that be the replacement for this recipe?

    • I’m sorry for getting back to you so late, but I haven’t used pure monkfruit sweetener – the sweetener I use is a mixture of monkfruit and erythritol. If you are using their recommended serving, it should be fine! A little goes a long way <3.
