These Sweet Chaffles are perfect for a low-carb breakfast, snack, or dessert! Cheesy waffles are soft, fluffy, and packed with sugar-free white chocolate chips for a treat around 1 net carb each.
Sweet Chaffle Recipe
These sweet chaffles are PERFECT for that sweet tooth craving! Like other chaffles, the base is primarily eggs and cheese, but we’ve softened these with cream cheese, added some sweetener, and then tossed in a handful of Lily’s baking chips for a decadent, easy dessert.
These cheesy waffles freeze easily and reheat perfectly, making them great for meal prepping and batch cooking. Top them with a few berries, powdered monk fruit, or sugar-free whipped cream for a delicious dessert or snack that is still low in carbs!
Each chaffle has under 2 net carbs but over 7 grams of protein and almost 6 grams of fat–This means they are wonderfully filling, too! These would make a great peanut butter (or pecan butter) sandwich when you’re looking for a nostalgic, keto-friendly meal your inner child will love.

Ingredients for Sweet Chaffles
Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll need for this recipe. For exact measurements, scroll down to the printable recipe card at the bottom.
- Eggs – Size large. You can also use the pre-beaten eggs in a carton if you prefer.
- Almond flour, Baking powder, Sweetener – I used brown sugar monkfruit for a deeper flavor, but you could use the golden or classic sweetener variety. Stevia or Swerve works as well. Don’t skip the baking powder–This gives the chaffles that great lift for a good fluffy bite!
- Shredded mozzarella and Cream cheese – You want part skim, low moisture mozzarella; fresh will not work. Make sure the cream cheese is softened before attempting to mix it into the batter so that it can be smoothly incorporated instead of leaving chunks.
- Vanilla extract and white chocolate chips – These add a great flavor, and the white chocolate chips add the extra sweetness you want! We use Lily’s, but you can use your favorite brand without sugar. You can swap these out for semi-sweet or dark chocolate if you prefer… Caramel chips, peppermint, or other seasonal Lily’s flavors would be a fun way to switch things up, too!
How to Make Keto Sweet Chaffles
This recipe is so simple and great for beginner cooks! You can mix up the batter up to 2 days ahead of time and store in an airtight container in the fridge for convenient meal prepping.
While your mini waffle maker is preheating, mix your batter in a medium sized bowl. First, beat your eggs until smooth, then add in your softened cream cheese, almond flour, mozzarella, baking powder, and vanilla extract. Once the cream cheese is smoothly mixed in, fold in the chocolate chips.
If your waffle maker struggles with sticking, add a spray of oil before cooking. Add 3 tablespoons of batter to the machine, filling it about 2/3rds. Make sure not to overfill as this will cause a huge mess! Close the machine and allow it to cook for 4-5 minutes.
When there is no longer steam coming from the machine, the waffle should be golden brown and ready to remove. Continue with the remaining batter for 7 tasty sweet chaffles.
Keep the cooked chaffles in the oven on warm (or around 150 degrees if possible) while you finish the rest of the batter. When the entire batch is finished, serve the chaffles with a sprinkle of confectioner’s monk fruit and extra no-sugar chocolate chips. These are also great with sugar-free syrup or a serving of pecan butter. Some keto whipped cream would really push these over the top to “BEST CHAFFLES EVER!”
Allow the chaffles to completely cool, then store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days.
Chaffles freeze very well. Just allow your chaffles to completely cool before placing in a freezer bag. I recommend separating the chaffles with parchment paper so they don’t stick. Your chaffles will stay fresh for up to 6 months in the freezer. When you are ready to enjoy your frozen chaffles, allow them to thaw on the counter for at least 30 minutes, or set overnight in the fridge.
You can reheat your chaffles in a number of different ways.
- Air Fryer – This is the crispiest way; Heat to 300 degrees F and cook for 3-4 minutes.
- Waffle Maker – Preheat the waffle maker, pop the chaffle in, and close the maker for about a minute.
- Toaster – Just like you would toast bread, place the chaffle in and let it toast for 30 seconds or so.
- Oven/Toaster Oven – Warm oven to 350 degrees F and cook 4-5 minutes.
- Stovetop – Heat a dry pan to medium and cook 1 minute on each side.
- Microwave – Not ideal; the chaffles get very soggy.
