I’m always looking for healthy alternatives I can make for my kids and since my oldest loves waffles, I decided to make a chaffle inspired by her favorite blueberry waffle!
Our kids aren’t low-carb/keto, but we do try to moderate their intake of refined carbohydrates, including white bread, pastries, cereal, and desserts. And since traditional blueberry waffles are loaded with just that, I decided to try making a blueberry chaffle that didn’t contain any flour or sugar like the store-bought frozen ones you see at the supermarket.
I took my original cream cheese chaffle and added fresh blueberries to them and BAM, delicious, fluffy blueberry chaffles that my kids devoured within minutes!! I’m sure some of you can relate, but when your kids actually like something that’s healthy, you feel like you’re winning!!
This recipe is portioned for the Dash Mini Waffle Maker, which I just love and use everyday. It makes two perfect sized chaffles in just minutes and the cleanup is a breeze. Of course, you can use any waffle iron you already own and it would work with this recipe as well.
This recipe uses Coconut Flour because I felt that it gives the chaffles a finer, soft texture but if you don’t have any on hand, you can try substituting the 1 tbsp of coconut flour for 2 tbsp of almond flour.
Another thing to remember is to use room temperature cream cheese and eggs so you can achieve a smooth batter. Otherwise you will end up with clumpy cream cheese in your waffles. Be sure to read below as I added a quick tip on how to make room temperature eggs and cream cheese in a jiffy.
For this dish, the special ingredients you would need are Coconut Flour and Swerve/Monkfruit, which can be purchased on Amazon or a local specialty supermarket. You will also need a waffle maker. We use the Dash Mini Waffle Maker because it makes the perfect size waffles, but any waffle maker will do.
Note – If you are preparing multiple servings, we would recommend using 2 Dash Mini Waffle Maker simultaneously to reduce the cooking time.
Now if you’re ready, let’s chaffle!
