  • 1/2¬†tsp¬†Vanilla extract
  • 1/2¬†tsp¬†Psyllium husk powder¬†(optional, for texture)
  • 1/4¬†tsp¬†Baking powder¬†(optional)
  • 1¬†tbsp¬†Butter¬†(melted; for topping)
  • 1/4¬†cup¬†Erythritol¬†(for topping)
  • 3/4¬†tsp¬†Cinnamon¬†(for topping)

Pumpkin Chaffles:

  • 1/2¬†oz¬†Cream cheese
  • 1¬†large¬†Egg
  • 1/2¬†cup¬†Mozzarella cheese¬†(shredded)
  • 2¬†tbsp¬†Pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/2¬†tbsp¬†Erythritol
  • 3¬†tsp¬†Coconut flour
  • 1/2¬†tbsp¬†Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2¬†tsp¬†Vanilla extract¬†(optional)

Spicy Jalapeno Popper Chaffles:

  • 1¬†oz¬†Cream cheese
  • 1¬†large¬†Egg
  • 1¬†cup¬†Cheddar cheese¬†(shredded)
  • 2¬†tbsp¬†Bacon bits
  • 1/2¬†tbsp¬†Jalapenos
  • 1/4¬†tsp¬†Baking powder¬†(optional)


  1. Preheat your waffle iron for about 5 minutes, until hot.

  2. If the recipe contains cream cheese, place it into a bowl first. Heat it gently in the microwave (~15-30 seconds) or a double boiler, until it’s soft and easy to stir.

  3. Stir in all other remaining ingredients (except toppings, if any).

  4. Pour enough of the chaffle batter into the waffle maker to cover the surface well. (That’s about 1/2 cup batter for a regular waffle maker and 1/4 cup for a mini waffle maker.)

  5. Cook until browned and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. (See my tip in the post above about other ways to tell they are done without opening the waffle maker!)

  6. Carefully remove the chaffle from the waffle maker and set aside to crisp up more. (Cooling is important for texture!) Repeat with remaining batter, if any.

Special instruction for churro chaffles only:

  1. Stir together the erythritol and cinnamon for topping. After the chaffles are cooked and no longer hot, brush them with melted butter, then sprinkle all over with the cinnamon “sugar” topping (or dip into the topping).

Serving size: 1 mini chaffle

The serving size of 1 mini chaffle is just for easy scaling, but sometimes you could have two, such as for a sandwich or full meal. The basic chaffle and garlic Parmesan recipes make 2 mini chaffles each. The cinnamon sugar (churro), pumpkin, and spicy jalapeno popper recipes make 3 mini chaffles each. The nutrition info on the recipe card is for the basic chaffles, but you can find nutrition info for the others in the post above.
