Keto Blueberry Chaffle Dessert has fresh blueberries baked right into the Chaffle – the perfect dessert or breakfast! Topping this treat with more fresh blueberries and whipped cream makes it even more delicious. The presentation is beautiful and is guaranteed to bring a smile to faces!
Let’s talk about those smiling faces. In our household there are only two of us and we both eat low-carb or Keto. As a result, Chaffles are perfect for us. However, if you have non-Keto members in your family, you should still try Chaffles. They are delicious and even non-Keto members will enjoy them! Although this is another Joanie recipe, somehow I have become the Chaffle maker. If I can do it, you too, can become a Chaffle guru!
You usually avoid fruits on Keto due to their high sugar content. However, blueberries are rich in fiber, low in calories, and in moderation are fine. We only use fresh berries. They are abundant in most areas and frozen ones would have to be perfectly thawed to use in Chaffles. If not, you would get a soggy mess. Stick with fresh!
Joanie’s recipe calls for two unique ingredients that simply make the Chaffle. She adds a teaspoon of blueberry extract to the batter and organic cinnamon. The combination makes the Chaffle have a delicious blueberry flavor in every bite. If your blueberries are very sweet you do not need much sweetener. Joanie added just a little erythritol as her sweetener – you can choose your favorite.
First, and foremost, to make a Chaffle you need a waffle maker. We found that the easiest solution is a Dash Mini Waffle Maker. They are only $9.99 from Amazon (looks like the price has jumped to $14.99). They make one 4-inch round Chaffle that is perfect for dessert creations. The Dash Mini only weighs one pound, takes up very little room, and comes in many colors. We bought the red to match our other kitchen appliances. To produce a perfect Chaffle every time – we found that 3 1/2 minutes is all that is needed.
If you have ever had regular blueberry waffles you have probably noticed splotches of melted blueberry spread sporadically around the finished waffle. The best way to accomplish this is to add fresh blueberries to the top of each Chaffle after you pour the batter. Do this before you close the lid on your waffle maker. This is also why Joanie uses blueberry extract – so each bite will have a blueberry flavor.
Chaffles are the craze today and we think it will last. They are flexible, easy to make, definitely Keto, freeze well, and are enjoyable for even the non-Keto members of your family. Joanie’s basic Chaffle recipe of 1 Egg, 1/2 cup of grated Cheddar, 1 tablespoon of Almond flour, and 1 teaspoon of Baking powder makes two perfect Chaffles. It is so simple, and topping the basic Chaffle with butter will make a delicious breakfast. You might also like some of our other Chaffle recipes:
