These carrot cake chaffles are super easy and super satisfying. They’re great for a weekend brunch situation, but can also be made quickly enough to include them in a weekday morning breakfast. They can even help cure an after-dinner sweet tooth attack. There’s nothing these chaffles can’t do. Except taxes. They can’t your do taxes.
Why are They Called Chaffles?
If you’re new to keto, then your very first question is probably what the (redacted) is a chaffle? Original chaffles referred to waffles that were made using eggs and cheese only. Cheese plus waffle equals chaffle. These were perfect for folks doing very strict keto diets because eggs and most cheeses contain very minimal and oftentimes zero carbs. Since then, chaffles of all types have popped up in the keto food world. A quick Google search will yield hundreds of results, both savory and sweet. I’ve seen pizza chaffles, oreo chaffles, birthday cake chaffles, and even churro chaffles. Talk about a good time. Using a mild, easy to mask cheese like mozzarella means that you’re limitless in what you can create. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention my personal favorite chaffle creation, Keto Chicken and Waffles.
You’ll notice that my recipe contains more than just the original eggs and cheese.
What Ingredients Do I Need?
For the chaffles, I used the following:
- 1 Large Egg
- Mozzarella, shredded
- Almond Flour
- Baking Powder
- Confectioners Swerve
- Vanilla Extract
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- Kosher Salt
I also whipped up a quick icing for these carrot cake chaffles. For that, I used:
- Cream Cheese
- Confectioners Swerve
- Chopped Walnuts
- Shredded Carrots
Can Chaffles Be Made in a Belgian Waffle Maker?
When most people make chaffles, they use a mini waffle maker. I don’t own one, so this recipe was actually made using a belgian waffle maker which yielded one large waffle with 4 sections that can be shared by two people. You can use this recipe with the mini waffle maker, and it will yield about 4 small waffles, depending on how heavy you are with the pour.
How Do You Keep the Chaffles from Sticking?
I prevent sticking by simply spraying my waffle maker with a bit of spray avocado oil as it heats up. You can opt to use your baking/cooking oil of choice.
Are Chaffles Good Reheated?
My favorite kitchen tool for reheating chaffles is a toaster or toaster oven, but I have also seen them reheated in the microwave. To me, using the microwave makes them a little gummier than I’d prefer.
Are Carrot Cake Chaffles Gluten Free?
This recipe is low-carb, keto-friendly, and gluten free.
Are Carrots Keto-Friendly?
The carrot is a starchy root vegetable, thus many people do not include them in large quantities while following a ketogenic lifestyle. However, they are perfectly fine in smaller quantities and are packed with nutrients so I would never rule them out of a healthy lifestyle. This recipe uses about ¼ cup of raw shredded carrots.
