Helpful Tips for Keto Chaffles
Softened Cream Cheese
Make sure you are working with softened cream cheese. If not you will find that your cream cheese will curdle and it won't give your waffles the right texture.
You can use any size or style of waffle maker for this recipe. Just adjust the cook time as needed for the size of waffle. Refer to your waffle maker manual to learn how to cook your waffle.
Variations to Keto Cream Cheese Waffles Recipe
You can use other types of berries if you don't want to use strawberries. Just remember some fruit contains higher sugar so you won't want to go overboard with the fruit.
Sugar free chocolate chips
Add in 1/4 cup of mini sugar free chocolate chips. This will give the waffles that strawberry and chocolate flavor that is out of this world! Semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate works!
Keto Strawberry Waffles FAQs
What does a Chaffle taste like?
Chaffles are a bit different than a classic waffle as they are made with cream cheese, almond flour, egg and such. They have a chewier texture than a traditional waffle.
Can I double this waffles recipe?
Go ahead and make as many or as few as you would like. This waffle recipe does double nicely. Then just batch cook your waffles and keep them warm in the oven.
How to store leftover strawberry waffles?
I recommend storing any waffles you don't eat right away in the fridge in an airtight container. You will find that it preserves the fruit longer than if you left them on the counter.
Can you freeze leftover cream cheese waffles?
Flash freeze the waffles on a parchment lined cookie sheet for an hour. Once the waffles are frozen, then place in a freezer bag or container. Then warm the waffles up in the microwave or even toaster for a crunchier texture.
Are chaffles healthy?
Chaffles are a great nutrient rich waffle. You will find with the egg it offers some protein and the almond flour isn't carb loaded like a traditional all-purpose flour is. So if you are eating waffles this is a better route to go.
