Is Pumpkin Keto Friendly?

The short answer is: yes!

Pumpkin is keto friendly because it contains zero sugars and is very low in carbs. Typically, we enjoy pumpkin in pies, sugary drinks, or cakes, and so we begin to relate pumpkin itself to unhealthy foods.

Pumpkin is actually super healthy! Pumpkins have a ton of great health benefits! They are highly nutritious, patricianly in vitamin A. They are high in antioxidants which are found to be helpful in reducing risk of chronic disease. They are super low in carbs and have no sugar!

All in all, pumpkins are super healthy and are a food we should probably try to enjoy more often than just in the Fall.

Just because pumpkin is often added to unhealthy foods does not mean that pumpkin is unhealthy!

What Is A Chaffle?

The keto chaffle has taken the keto/low carb community by storm lately, and for good reason! There are so many good chaffle recipes out there, including our Best Oreo Keto Chaffles.

There are regular chaffles, typically made with egg and cheese, and then there are dessert chaffles, made usually with a keto friendly flour and other ingredients typical to a cake.

Basically, a chaffle is a mini keto waffle. But, it has become so much more than just a waffle! Chaffles are used as a bread substitute, or they can become delicious desserts (like the one you are currently looking at)!

Chaffles are so easy to make, usually only requiring a few ingredients that you probably almost always have on hand.

Hop on the chaffle bandwagon, it is a delicious ride!

What Mini Waffle Maker to Use (Hint: Dash Mini)

The Dash mini waffle maker is our go-to waffle maker for chaffles. It is the perfect size to store easily on the counter or in a cabinet, and it also makes the perfect sized chaffles!

Since chaffles often serve as bun replacements, it’s important to have something that is bun-sized. The Dash mini waffle maker makes the perfect 4-inch waffle (or chaffle) every time.

Cleanup is also a breeze with this waffle maker because of it’s easy to clean surface! There are so many things to love about this cute but effective little gadget!

If you want to take your chaffle making a little more seriously, you could also consider getting a waffle maker that cooks four chaffles at a time. This is especially helpful if you are cooking for multiple people, or if you just really love chaffles!

This one is of course a bit larger, so you need more designated counter space or storage space, and it is more of a surface area to clean, but it is easy to overlook these things when you are popping out four chaffles at a time!

Ingredients Needed For Keto Pumpkin Chaffle

Like most other keto chaffle recipes, this one is super simple and only uses a few ingredients that you definitely already have!

An egg, some pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, almond flour, vanilla extract, sweetener, baking powder, heavy cream, and some diced pecans are all you will need to whip up this yummy keto pumpkin chaffle!

That means you can get started right away!

Another great thing about chaffles is that they are so easy to make. There are seriously only two basic steps you need to take to make a keto pumpkin chaffle.

The first step is simply to blend together all of the ingredients in a bowl. Make sure that your batter is well mixed so that your chaffle comes out nice and even.

Next, you simply pour half your batter on to a preheated mini waffle iron and let it cook for about four minutes.

You’ll want to make sure that you exercise some patience here. If you lift the top of the waffle maker to  peek at your chaffle while it’s cooking, you will probably end up with a sticky mess, and not a chaffle.

Be sure to let your mini waffle maker do its thing so that you end up with the perfect chaffle!

Tips For Best Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Chaffle

While this recipe is already fantastic, if you are feeling adventurous, you could give these ideas a try and make your keto pumpkin cheesecake chaffle even better!

  • Make sure you are only using 100% pumpkin, preferably a puree. A canned pumpkin pie filling will contain tons of sugar and carbs.
  • Add some baking powder to your chaffle as it will cause it be be even thicker and fluffier!
  • Use Lakanto’s Golden Monkfruit Sweetener instead of their classic sweetener. Golden monkfruit is a brown sugar substitute and it works amazingly in this keto chaffle! Some believe that brown sugar (and its substitutes) make recipes chewier. If you need to purchase some golden monkfruit, shop Lakanto’s website and sure to use our discount code, “BUTTERTOGETHER” to save 20% off of your entire order!
  • Add a dollop of whipped cream on top of your chaffles! This will make them look nice, but most impiratly, will taste delicious!
  • Add some crushed pecans on top of your keto chaffle! It will give this soft and sweet chaffle a bit of extra crunch.
  • Finally, be creative! Give this chaffle a personal touch in whatever way you can think of. These chaffle recipes are super adaptable and customizable, so feel free to make this chaffle how you prefer!

  • Jenna

    These tasted good but stuck like CRAZY to my waffle iron! Maybe it’s just my iron? Poor waffles looked like they got hit by a car by the time I got them out!

    • Kasey

      You can try spraying a little cooking spray on the waffle iron before using. Hope that helps!

    • Heather

      @Jenna, mine stuck too. First time anything stuck to my dash lol.

  • Nheree

    Is it coconut flour or almond flour? It says coconut flour in one part and then almond flour in another.

    • Kasey

      It is supposed to be almond flour! Thank you for pointing that out. It has been corrected! Enjoy!

  • Cassy Young

    OMG this was delicious!!! I used the lakanto maple syrup instead of choczero syrup in the recipe and for the frosting powdered sugar substitute because I had that and it was still perfection!! Thank you 🙌🏽❤️

  • Jane

    In the recipe it says almond flour,but in the notes it says coconut flour

    • Kasey

      It is supposed to be almond flour! Thank you for pointing that out. It has been corrected! Enjoy!

  • Kailene

    Let me start by saying this tastes phenomenal! I would definitely make it again, but wanted to drop a helpful hint for anyone looking to make these for the first time. This recipe actually makes 3-4 waffles in the dash mini waffle maker. I made this recipe exactly as written and I put half the batter in the first time (as per the instructions) and a good portion of it ended up spilling out of the waffle iron and onto the counter. Next time, I would divide the batter to make four waffles and split the filling between them. Aside from that, it was amazing and very tasty!

  • Jan

    Question on nutrition information: It says the serving size is 1 chaffle but the photos all show two chaffles? Which is correct please. Thank you

  • Pat

    Wonderful recipes!

  • Shawna

    Didn’t realize I had no pumpkin until I had several things in the bowl. Used about 2 Tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce and everything else the same. I don’t know what a pumpkin one tastes like but mine were great. Made four.

    • Kasey

      So glad you enjoyed it, even with the alterations! We hope you get to try it with pumpkin sometime soon!

  • Michelle

    Hi could i just puree some pumpkin in a blender.

    • Kasey

      I am not sure how that would work in this recipe. You could give it a try, though! Let us know how it works if you do!

    • KRobbins

      You need to cook the pumpkin first before you purée !

  • KRobbins

    In your detailed and lengthy description you say you need coconut flour, but in your actual recipe you have almond flour. Which did you actually use?

    • Kasey

      It is supposed to be almond flour! Thank you for pointing that out. It has been corrected! Enjoy!

  • Heather

    This recipe made 3 waffles for me. 3 overflowing from the Dash size waffles lol. Did I do something wrong? Is it still like 5 carbs for both?

    • Kasey

      I am not sure what went wrong, but it ould be the same number of carbs for the whole recioe, but less per chaffle.
