Ingredients You’ll Need
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for chocolate chaffles, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
For the chocolate waffles:
- Wholesome Yum Almond Flour – Adds body to the waffle batter, without the grittiness of other almond flours (this one is the finest consistency out there!). You can also substitute 2 teaspoons of coconut flour.
- Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – Creates a sweet flavor that mixes easily into the batter. You can also substitute erythritol or another keto sweetener, but the texture may be grittier.
- Wholesome Yum Psyllium Husk Powder – Helps the chocolate chaffle be a bit chewy… like real waffles! Plus, it adds a natural boost of fiber, and mine won’t turn baked goods purple like some other brands do.
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – This cheese has the best flavor profile (read: neutral) for oreo chaffles, and helps them get crispy.
- Egg – Use a whole, large egg. A flax egg may also work.
- Butter – Adds moisture to the batter. You can also use coconut oil instead.
- Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – Creates a rich, chocolaty flavor. Use the best quality one you can.
- Vanilla Extract – Enhances the sweetness.
- Baking Powder – Helps the oreo chaffle rise.
For the cream cheese frosting:
- Besti Powdered Monk Fruit Allulose Blend – This confectioners-style sweetener creates a smooth, sweet, and fluffy frosting.
- Cream Cheese – For the most keto-friendly chocolate chaffle, choose a full-fat variety.
- Vanilla Extract
- Heavy Cream – Coconut cream will also work.
How To Make Chocolate Chaffles With Cream Cheese
This section shows how to make oreo chaffles, with step-by-step photos and details about the technique. For full instructions, see the recipe card below.
- Preheat. Do this first, so that the waffle iron has time to heat up.
- Make batter. In a medium bowl, combine shredded mozzarella, egg, Wholesome Yum Almond Flour, Wholesome Yum Psyllium Husk Powder, Besti,and baking powder, butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla. Stir or whisk until smooth.
- Cook. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into a 4-inch waffle maker and cook until crispy. Carefully remove the chaffle from the waffle maker and set aside to crisp up. Repeat with remaining batter.
TIP: This recipe makes two servings. These waffles are very filling! You can cut the sandwich in half to serve if you want to have just one serving.
