Chocolate Chip Chaffles

CHOCOLATE CHIP CHAFFLES are the simplest twist on the latest low carb craze, but those little bits of chocolate hiding throughout the waffle are magical. We serve ours with a big dollop of whipped cream, but some low carb ice cream would be a delicious topping for dessert!

Well, it’s official.

I have been making a different type of chaffle every single day since I discovered them and not only am I hooked…my family is too!

My daughter asked for a little chaffle lesson this morning so that she could make her own for breakfast. And, no, she’s not low carb and yes, we do actually have a box of Eggos in the freezer for her to grab on busy mornings. 

If that doesn’t tell you how good chaffles are, well, I don’t know what will. You’re just going to have to try them for yourself! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Haven’t heard about the chaffle craze yet? Click here for all the details and the basic recipe!

These chocolate chip chaffles are super simple with just a handful of ingredients and they’re ready in minutes. We serve these keto waffles at breakfast with whipped cream or for dessert with a scoop of low carb ice cream!

How to make keto waffles with chocolate chips:

You’re going to need an egg, some finely shredded mozzarella cheese (just trust me), a little coconut flour, sweetener, vanilla, and some sugar-free chocolate chips.

I use and recommend Lakanto Monkfruit for the sweetener. It’s a blend of erythritol and monkfruit which helps eliminate any aftertaste and it’s all natural too! Use code THATLOWCARBLIFE for 20% off your entire order.

Whisk together your egg, coconut flour, sweetener, and vanilla and then stir in the cheese.

This looks a little funky, but you just have to have faith that I wouldn’t lead you astray. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Spoon half of the batter into your mini waffle iron and then dot the top with chocolate chips. Use a spoon to spread a bit of batter of the chips so they don’t burn when you close the waffle iron.

Close the iron and cook for 3-4 minutes, depending on how crispy you’d like your waffles.

Repeat with the rest of the batter, stack ’em up, and squirt on some whipped cream.

Breakfast is served!

What kind of waffle maker do you need? 

You are going to want a mini waffle maker for this recipe. This size will make 2 Eggo-sized waffles.

I use the Dash Mini Waffle Maker

Don’t worry – you can order from Amazon for around $10 and I almost guarantee you won’t regret the purchase!

They’ve been on backorder for a bit due to the overwhelming love of the chaffle, but go ahead and order! I’m hearing from readers that they’re shipping out much sooner than the backorder date!

Dash waffle maker

The Dash heats quickly, cooks quickly, takes up barely any space, and it comes in a variety of cute colors. I have the aqua. 

If you want to make more than 1 mini waffle at a time, check out this one:

If you plan to make chaffles for a family, this should work great! I haven’t tried it myself, but plan to order because my kids are obsessed with chaffles too.

Chocolate Chip Chaffles

Chaffles are the latest low carb craze and this version is a sweet way to start your day. Don't worry about the cheese in the recipe - as long as you use mozzarella, you'll never even know it's in there!

Yield 2 chaffles
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 11 minutes



  1. Plug in your waffle iron to preheat.
  2. Add the egg, coconut flour, sweetener, and vanilla to a small bowl and whisk together with a fork.
  3. Stir in the shredded cheese.
  4. Spoon half of the batter into the waffle iron and dot with half of the chocolate chips. Spread a bit of batter over each chocolate chip.
  5. Close the waffle iron and cook for 3-4 minutes or until as crisp as you'd like.
  6. Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Serve hot with whipped cream or low carb ice cream.


I prefer Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener as it's all-natural and doesn't have any aftertaste. Feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer.

  1. Susan Martin

    I made these today – delicious!! Left off the whipped cream, but know that would really taste great also. Super easy, delicious! Thanks!

  2. I am just starting things like chaffles, so need to try these. I was wondering if these chocolate chips are much different than Lily’s? On their site they are rather expensive. Thanks.

  3. Lee A Clark

    The recipe says yield one and serving 1. calories 304, but you said serving size was 2. Little confused.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Sorry, that is confusing. The recipe will make 2 waffles, which is 1 serving. The nutrition info is for the whole batch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Just-Do-It-Deb

    FYI: I got the mini waffle maker in red & it shipped immediately; got in 2 days via Amazon Prime. I’have had too many carbs already today, but definitely trying them tomorrow, I have all the ingredients for these choc chip chsffles. Thank you for all the advice; instead of just posting the recipe!

  5. Lisa Cooper

    First of all , this is not aimed just at you, but can I ask to why if the serving is 2 chaffles why are there 3 on the plate. Iโ€™m used to seeing the larger than serving portion with non keto pictures and commercials and itโ€™s very misleading as is with this. I go straight to the servings on a recipe and it typically doesnโ€™t match what the portion shown is. Itโ€™s misleading and disappointing. I have enjoyed making many of your recipes.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Lisa! It’s not meant to mislead. But a stack of two waffles isn’t nearly as appealing as a taller stack so that’s why you see more. I clearly state the serving size in the recipe card so there shouldn’t be any confusion.

  6. Chris Houck

    I’ll definitely have to try this! I have another chocolate chip chaffle recipe, so this will be different. I also recommend the Dash panini maker for when you want to make sandwich chaffles – so much closer to bread!

    1. Teresa Lindgren

      Why in the written recipe it lists 1 egg but in the video she’s cracking 2 eggs? What is the real recipe? Confusing again!

      1. Karly Campbell

        The video is showing a double batch. For a single batch (2 chaffles) use 1 egg as stated in the recipe.

  7. Hi Karly- love your recipe! Did you end up buying and trying that 4-waffle maker you mentioned in this post? I find myself quadrupling the recipe for my large crew on weekends but the single mini dash maker takes so long! Would you recommend that big one?

    1. Karly Campbell

      No, I never did. I ended up getting a couple of smaller ones in different colors. Haha!

      1. Martha Rincon

        Can You Use Almond Flour Instead Of Coconut Flour. And Instead Monk Fruit Can You Use Serve Sweentner. Do You. Have To Add Mozzerella Also

        1. Karly Campbell

          Hi Martha!

          If you use almond flour, you’ll probably want to use a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon. You can use any type of sweetener you want as long as it measures at a 1:1 ratio for sugar. Any type of shredded cheese will work here, but mozzarella is best because it doesn’t add flavor to the waffles. Cheddar would create the same texture and work just fine, but you’d have cheddar flavored chocolate chip waffles at the end.

  8. I have been doing low carb for about 9 months, but I Just discovered chaffles. These were delicious!!! My husband and my teenage daughter were reluctant to try them but they loved them too. Big hit at my house!!

    1. Karly Campbell

      I mostly just use Redd-Whip, but a cup or so of heavy cream and a tablespoon of powdered sweetener is what I do for homemade. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Hi Karly. Thank you for sharing. I canโ€™t wait to try this chocolate chip goodness lol
    Question do you Chaffle everyday, multiple times a day?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Krystal! When I first discovered chaffles, we ate them alllllll the time. I’m down to a few times a week though. Too much cheese doesn’t work great for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Your nutrition facts, is that for 1 chaffle or is the the nutrition for all ingredients used, I know in the mini waffle makers, 1 batch can make 2 chaffles.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Mary! I don’t have any experience with arrowroot flour, unfortunately. I’m not sure how it’d work here.

  11. I only have the large size waffle iron. Could you tell me how to tweak the recipes to make the larger size?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Stacey! There are so many different sizes of waffle irons, I really can’t tell you. You’ll likely just be able to add the full amount to your iron and end up with one larger waffle instead of two mini.
