I’m going to be honest. When I first heard about the Keto Chaffle phenomenon, I snickered. “Oh, NO! Here comes another lifechanging appliance I must buy… NOT!” I can’t stand extraneous kitchen appliances crowding my already overburdened kitchen counters. But the dirty keto chaffle posts and shares just would… not… stop.
I had to investigate! I was suffering from FOMO.
This morning, I dusted off my trusty waffle iron and gathered the necessary ingredients. Yes, you can use the “official” Dash Mini-Maker (it comes in pink too!), but I found my regular waffle iron from last Christmas worked just as well.
In my experience, the waffle iron works best when it’s well heated. I plugged it in to pre-heat while I gathered up the necessary DIRTY, LAZY, KETO chaffle ingredients:
- 4 eggs
- 4 Tbsp almond flour
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 2 (1 gram packets) zero net carb sweetener
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- Pam cooking spray
All at once, I blended the ingredients into a frothed, thin liquid. This surprised me. How in the world will this turn into a chaffle? I sprayed my waffle maker with Pam cooking spray and poured a thin layer of batter across the mold.
After exactly 3 minutes cooking in the waffle maker – VOILA!
Using a spatula, I carefully lifted the golden brown chaffles from the waffle maker and served warm, with additional butter and sugar-free syrup. Following these directions, I was able to make 5 waffles, enough to share (or freeze).
Surprisingly, the DIRTY, LAZY, KETO chaffles look JUST LIKE REGULAR WAFFLES. My son walked into the room and grabbed two – without hesitation. #KidApproved
How do they taste? I made several versions before I got this “just right”. My first attempt was a bit too “eggy” for me. By adding vanilla and artificial sweetener, the taste improved dramatically.
Bottom line? I’m officially on #TeamChaffle. These are magnificent!
