Pumpkin season is here!
It’s that time of the year when pumpkin everything starts popping up everywhere from bakeries to coffee shops! I used to get so excited for this time of year because it meant I got to eat all these delicious pumpkin baked goods which are my favorite!
But ever since starting this new way of eating, the only way I could enjoy these dishes was to make my own! So I’ve started to acquire quite a few of my own low-carb/keto pumpkin recipes that I’m excited to share with you all.
For this recipe though, since we’re on a chaffle kick and have been cooking up a storm making all kinds of different chaffle recipes, I thought it’d be fitting to add our own version of a Pumpkin Cream Cheese Chaffle!
Now, if you’re new to the low-carb/keto lifestyle, you might be thinking is pumpkin low in carbs?
Well, I’m here to tell you that pumpkins without any additives are low in carbs (~0.7g per tbsp) and can definitely be incorporated into your diet as long you’re not overdoing it and eating large amounts. But of course, that goes with anything you’re eating.
Pumpkins are also packed with beta-carotene (Vitamin A) and Vitamin C that has been linked to protecting your cells against free radical, improving eyesight and boosting your immune system. Pumpkins are also nutrient-dense while being low in calories which can help with general weight loss.
So if you’re a pumpkin lover like me and want to eat healthy while still being able to enjoy the delicious offerings of this fall season, then get in there and make yourself some Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Chaffle!
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 pumpkin chaffle!
