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 Super Fine almond flour
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 2 (1 gram packets) zero net carb sweetener
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 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) at 3g net carbs per chaffle.
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!
