Cream Cheese Chaffles are a crave that people can't get enough of. If you are one that is loving all things chaffles, you have to try this sweet cream cheese chaffles recipe.
Cream Cheese Chaffles
I share all my tips and tricks on how to get the perfect cream cheese chaffle every single time. I also take you through great topping ideas to add a new level of flavor to your easy chaffles recipe.
What Are Chaffles
A chaffle is what many know as the must have keto waffle recipe. You have cheese as a main ingredient that gets cooked in a waffle iron or Dash mini waffle maker.
Hence the name, chaffle as it combines the two names. You will find savory chaffle recipes along with sweet ones like this recipe here. Either way, you can enjoy the easy and tasty homemade chaffle with cream cheese as the base.
What Are Chaffles Made Of
For this particular recipe, I use a handful of ingredients. Eggs, cream cheese, monk fruit sweetener, vanilla, mozzarella cheese, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
You will find this recipe gives you the perfect texture. You get a sweet recipe that has a nice soft and chewy texture.
Do Chaffles Have To Be Refrigerated
Yes, because of the ingredients used you will need to refrigerate any leftovers you may have. I love to eat these fresh, but I will save some back if they don't all get eaten right away.
You can store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two days. Make sure you allow your keto chaffles to cool down before storing or the condensation will build and soften them up quite a bit.
How Long Does It Take To Cook Cream Cheese Chaffles
This will all depend on which waffle iron you are using. A good rule of thumb is 3-5 minutes though. You will want to cook until you see all the steam stop rising up from the waffle iron.
When you go to remove your low carb chaffle it will be easy to lift off the iron, and it will stay together. If it still looks soft or mushy in spots you need to cook it longer.
How To Make The Perfect Chaffle
- Hot Iron | Make sure your waffle iron gets nice and hot. You don't want to pour the batter into a cold iron.
- Softened Cream Cheese | Make sure your cream cheese is softened so it will mix up the way you need it to. If you don't take the time to soften it will not work.
- Fine Shredded Cheese | You don't have to use finely shredded cheese but I find it does offer the best texture. Now, if you have thicker cheese it will work just know the texture will vary.
These are just a few tips for working with cream cheese chaffles. Feel free to do what you like the best, or try some of my tips and see how you like them.

How To Make Your Chaffle Taste Less Eggy
The best way to get around the overly eggy taste is to allow your chaffle to fully cool once it has cooked. I know that you would think serving it warm is best, but you will find the best flavor is when it is completely cooled down.
Then add on your favorite toppings. Lemon curd, sugar free jam, dusting of powdered sweetener, or any other favorites you may have. You can even make homemade whipped cream and add a dollop, it will taste fantastic.
If you are on the hunt for a sweet chaffle recipe, this one is a must make. You will love the sweet flavors and the unlimited toppings you can pile on.

These are delicious, I will make again. Not sure what happened, followed recipe exact & got 12 mini-chaffles! Like I said, they’re great, hot & lifted out beautifully.
These were very good. I halved the recipe and I still got 3.5 chaffles so keep that in mind. I opted to not add the sweetener and dusted them with cinnamon and tiny amount of guava jam. I waited fir them to cool and they did not taste “eggy”. Will make these again!
These are great, and I’ve tried A LOT of chaffle recipes 🤗 I do have one critique. So most recipes doing low-carb or keto nowadays call Lankanto or other blends “Monk fruit sweetener“ which for the most part is erythritol with a little Monk fruit. I buy monk fruit sweetener itself so when I see this in recipes it’s confusing. Please let people know you are talking about a blend. Thanks
Thank you, Evelyn! I will try to be more clear in the future. 🙂
Can I use Almond flour? Coconut flour makes me choke.
Yes, I believe you could, but I have not actually tried it. The measurements may need to be adjusted since coconut flour is so absorbant.
I did and get were delicious!
What a great breakfast idea. So delicious that I felt like I was cheating on my Keto diet!
I'm glad you liked them!
Thank you so much for this recipe! Being a stickler 🤓 I noticed ½ tsp salt in the ingredient list but not in directions. Assumed to add with dry stuff. But if you’re up for correcting that… 😊 Also I used ½ Tbsp of the sweetener and switched flavoring to ½ tsp lemon extract. Oh and used Mexican blend cheese🤪 Yummmmmmm😋😋
Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
I subbed strawberry cream cheese for unflavored and omitted the lemon zest - delish!
I made the recipe as directed (except subbed strawberry cream cheese and got 7 chaffles in my Dash mini waffle maker!
Amazing! I just tried this recipe and was going to test another one afterwards. I ended up just making 2 batches of this one. It's so fluffy and good. Not like the other chaffles I've tried, which are good too, but these taste and feel like waffles. Now my only problem is making sure my family doesn't eat them all. I used used these to make myself a pb & j sandwich (all sugar free), and it was fantastic. These will work well as a bread substitute or as waffles. Thank you for the recipe.
