Keto Red Velvet Chaffles Recipe 

Red Velvet Cake has always been my go-to for as long as I can remember. The rich, chocolate-like flavor of a deliciously moist cake combined with the unique flavor of creamy cream cheese frosting is a combination like no other!

Of course, traditional red velvet cake is a no-go when living a ketogenic lifestyle. And even though that makes me VERY sad, there is good news! This keto red velvet chaffle is just like the real thing! The super soft, fluffy chaffle is better than some red velvet cakes I’ve had, and the keto cream cheese frosting is on par with any cream cheese frosting out there!

If you love red velvet as much as I do, you will absolutely love this keto red velvet chaffle!

What Is A Chaffle?

Chaffles are incredibly popular in the keto community these days, and for good reason. They are amazingly simple to make, taste awesome, and can be used for just about anything.

There basically two types of chaffles out there: first there is the traditional chaffle, and then there is also the dessert chaffle.

Both kinds of chaffles are made in the same basic ways, but the ingredients and uses will be a bit different.

The traditional chaffle is made with cheese and egg. This is how the name “chaffle” came about. It is essentially a cheese waffle. Traditional chaffles are mostly used as sandwich bread, but they have other uses as well. For instance, we used one as a pizza crust and it worked out perfectly or keto taco chaffles!

This white bread chaffle is very similar to a traditional chaffle, but it is a bit more like regular bread than a chaffle. It also is not as cheesy or crunchy as a traditional chaffle.

Dessert chaffles are amazing! They are super adaptable and can be used in a million different ways. We have done some pretty cool stuff with dessert chaffles like make a Keto Peanut Butter Cup Chaffle, Oreo Chaffle, and even a Strawberry Shortcake Chaffle! All of these dessert chaffles turned out tasting delicious! We have even more dessert chaffles on the site so be sure to look for those.

Dessert Chaffles often don’t require cheese, and they are often softer than traditional chaffles.

Best Mini Waffle Maker To Use:

In order to make any type of chaffle, you will need some sort of waffle maker. Chaffles are typically about 4 inches across, making them perfect bun replacements or single serve desserts.

Since chaffles are normally small, we highly recommend using a mini waffle maker. Specifically, we recommend the Dash mini waffle maker. It is super easy to use, a breeze to clean, and makes the perfect sized chaffle every time.

This mini waffle maker can be purchased at pretty much any retailer than sells small appliances, but we recommend ordering from Amazon. Since chaffles have become so popular, a lot of retailers have sold out of mini waffle makers. Amazon seems to always be in stock though.

If you really love chaffles, or if you have a large family that loves chaffles, you may want to consider a waffle maker that makes multiple mini waffles at once. We recommend the Burgess Brothers ChurWaffle Maker  for families or chaffle enthusiasts.

This waffle maker will make four chaffles at a time, making it so much easier to cook for a family. The last thing you want to do is try to cook for a hungry family making one chaffle at a time. Everyone wants their chaffle to be cooked first and the family can’t eat together if you can only make one chaffle at once.

Whatever mini waffle maker you choose, making chaffles will be a breeze!

Best Sweetener To Use: Lakanto Monkfruit

We have many different keto dessert recipes on our site that are tasty, sugar free, and very low in carbs. We are able to do that while still having delicious recipes because of the sweetener we use, Lakanto’s Monkfruit Sweetener.

We used Lakanto’s Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener in these Red Velvet Chaffles and to make our cream cheese frosting!

Many keto friendly sweeteners have a bad aftertaste and cooling affect that I do not care for, but Lakanto’s monk fruit does not! Some of the reasons why my husband and I love it: no aftertaste, it has a ratio of 1:1 to sugar, which makes converting traditional recipes easy, and best of all, it will not raise your glucose levels. In addition to that, it is totally natural and tastes better than any other sweetener out there, in my opinion.

If you want to give monk fruit a try, or if you just need to restock, shop Lakanto’s website and use our promo code “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout to receive 20% off your entire purchase! That includes every variety of sweetener as well as any of the other amazing keto-friendly products offered by Lakanto.
