Chocolate chip chaffles

Tired of the same old keto breakfast recipes over and over again? Or maybe you’re looking for a yummy yet simple keto dessert recipe? Treat yourself with a sweet chocolate chaffle! Cute and mini + topped with peanut butter whip, you’ll love every single bite.

What’s a Chaffle?

If you searched for this recipe you probably already know what a chaffle is, but for those who stumbled across it on accident, a basic chaffle is simply a waffle made from cheese and eggs.

That being said, this is no basic chaffle! To make a chocolate chaffle with peanut butter topping, you’ll need a few extra ingredients…

Chocolate Chaffle Ingredients & Supplies

Ingredients for chocolate chaffles and peanut butter topping

To start, if you want to make mini chocolate chaffles as pictured in this post, you’ll need a mini waffle maker (they’re super affordable on Amazon – try the Dash Mini Maker). You can also use a regular waffle maker for this recipe (yield is about 2 full-size Belgian waffles), but your chaffles won’t be as cute!

Ok, now for the recipe ingredients. As you know there are two parts of this recipe: the chocolate chaffle and the whipped peanut butter topping. If you want to skip the topping, feel free! Here are the ingredients for both:

Chocolate Chaffle Ingredients

For the chocolate chaffles, we use a base of 2 large eggs and 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese. Then we add heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, monk-fruit sweetener, unflavored whey protein, baking soda, cocoa powder, mozzarella cheese, and Lily’s chocolate chips.

If you don’t have Lily’s chocolate chips, you can use any other keto-friendly chocolate chips.

If you’re not sure what monk-fruit sweetener is, it’s a natural sugar substitute with quite a few potential health benefits. If you don’t know where to find it, it’s available on Amazon.

One last tip: Try to shred your own mozzarella if you have time. Pre-shredded cheese has preservatives on it which could affect how well the cheese mixes into the batter. When you grate it yourself, you can make it nice and fine too.

Peanut Butter Topping Ingredients

The peanut butter topping is really simple to make and requires only 4 ingredients: heavy whipping cream, sugar-free peanut butter powder, vanilla extract, and Swerve confectioner’s sugar.

Now, if you wanted to go for something more simple, you could also just spread some keto-friendly peanut butter on your chocolate chaffles. Grab two and make a little sandwich if you’d like!

How to Make Chocolate Chaffles

After you’ve prepared your ingredients (shred that cheese!) you can start preparing your chocolate chaffle batter. You can also plug in and preheat your waffle maker now if it takes a while to heat up, otherwise you can do it later.

Step 1. Mix Wet Ingredients

Wet ingredients in mixing bowl

Start by beating your eggs, whipping cream, vanilla extract, and sweetener together until frothy.

Step 2. Mix Dry Ingredients

Dry ingredients in mixing bowl

Grab a separate mixing bowl and whisk together your whey protein, baking soda, and cocoa powder.

Step 3. Combine

Combining wet and dry ingredients and mozzarella

Add your shredded mozzarella and dry ingredients to your egg mixture from step 1 and beat everything together until well combined.

Step 4. Add Chocolate Chips

Be sure to fold in your chocolate chips at this point to avoid over mixing the batter.

Step 5. Cook ’em!

Woohoo! Time to start cooking your chocolate chaffles. Preheat your waffle maker and spray it down generously with a low carb cooking spray.

For the mini chaffles, add 1/4 cup of batter and cook for about 4 minutes. The chaffles will begin to darken once they’re finished. Since every waffle maker is different, keep an eye on the first couple to get an idea of how long to cook yours for.

Here’s how a finished chocolate chaffle should look:

Tip: While your chaffles are cooking/cooling, move onto the next step if you want to include the whipped peanut butter topping!

Step 6. Make the Peanut Butter Topping

To make this easy yet delicious topping, start by adding whipping cream to a mixing bowl and beating it until peaks begin to form. Then, add in peanut powder, vanilla extract, and Swerve, beating until just combined.

Top your chaffles and enjoy! Tip: If you stack them all up and “glue” them together with the whipped peanut butter, it’s a bit like a chocolate chaffle cake!

Final Thoughts

What’s awesome about these mini chocolate chaffles is that you can have one as a mid-day snack, as an easy breakfast, or as a dessert! Even one chaffle is pretty filling, and the peanut butter topping can be skipped for convenience. Best of all, since these are so easy to make, you could prep 6-12 in one go and then just store the rest for later.
