What Is A Chaffle?
A "chaffle" is a low carb and keto-friendly waffle made with cheese and eggs. Because they're made with cheese and eggs, they have a fluffy texture and crunchy outer layer, and of course they're very low in carbs.
This chocolate chaffles recipe is easy to make, delicious and dare I say better than any non-keto equivalent! The salt makes all the difference when it comes to chocolate desserts, so don’t forget to add a tiny pinch to make the flavors pop.

How To Make Chocolate Chaffles
Preheat your waffle iron.
Take a mixing bowl and combine the eggs, coconut flour, Erythritol, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Mix everything together well until you get a thick batter.
Spoon the batter into your waffle iron, close the lid and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat until you've used all your batter.
Serve the chaffles hot and optionally top with low carb fresh fruit and sugar free chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
In the fridge: If you make a large batch of chaffles or have any leftover, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They'll keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
In the freezer: You can also freeze chaffles and reheat them from frozen. Store them in freezer proof bags or containers and they'll keep for up to 6 months.
To reheat chaffles: Whether you're reheating chaffles from the fridge or freezer doesn't matter. You can use a toaster, toaster oven, conventional oven or skillet/pan to reheat them. Placing them in the toaster is by far the easiest option and they come out great!
