Keto Snickerdoodle Chaffles
Snickerdoodles are a classic. They’re soft, chewy, cinnamony and sweet! If you love the classic snickerdoodle, you’ll love our Thick and Soft Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies!
If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy the delicious flavor and warmth of snickerdoodles you’ll definitely want to give these keto snickerdoodle chaffles a try.
Like all of our recipes, these snickerdoodle chaffles are incredibly easy to make! All you’ll need are a few common ingredients and a few minutes and you’ll be well on your way to deliciousness!
Snickerdoodles are one of the most popular fall and winter treats because of their warm flavor and sweetness. They are definitely one of my favorite treats, but now I get to enjoy the same flavor in a new and exciting way!
What Are Chaffles?
So, by now you are probably asking yourself, “what in the world is a chaffle?!” Fair question.
A chaffle is fairly simple. It is made of only two ingredients: Cheese and eggs. It is a cheese and egg waffle. At first, that might not sound too great, but trust me, it is really good!
As I mentioned, everyone in every keto Facebook group is making their own chaffle so of course there is some variation. Some are adding baking powder to get their chaffle to become a little fluffier, while others are simply adding things like bacon to make it tastier. You really can’t go wrong.
While this is the traditional chaffle, the chaffle has taken on various forms, many of which do not even include cheese! The chaffle has really grown out of its name (which, I assume, came about by combining the words “cheese” and “waffle”) and has come to include many other creations!
This keto snickerdoodle chaffle technically does contain cheese so it is a “chaffle,” but many of our other great chaffle recipes do not, like our Keto Peanut Butter Cup Chaffle, Keto Peanut Butter Cup Chaffle, and Oreo Keto Chaffles.
Sweet Chaffles Vs Savory Chaffles
As I already mentioned, there are two kinds of chaffles: sweet chaffles and savory chaffles. Both are amazing, but have different purposes.
Sweet chaffles are exactly what they sound like: dessert chaffles! These usually include typical baking ingredients like baking powder, sweetener, almond/coconut flour, and any other ingredient you may need to make a sweet dessert.
No matter what kind of chaffle you create, you are sure to love it!
What Kind Of Waffle Maker For Chaffles?
In order to make a perfectly sized keto chaffle, you will need a mini waffle maker. The Dash mini waffle maker seems to be the waffle maker of choice for most, and that is because it works the best and is the easiest to use.
A few great things about this mini waffle maker is that it is small, so it takes up almost no counter space. OR, if you prefer to store it as apposed to leaving it on your counter, you can fit this thing anywhere! Since it’s so small, it is super easy to clean!
All of these things are great, but the best thing of all about the mini waffle maker is that it makes the perfect sized chaffle! Since the chaffle is often used as a bread replacement, it wouldn’t really make sense to have an 8 inch wide bun!
The mini waffle maker makes the perfect sized chaffle every time. And you just can’t beat $10 with free shipping on the DASH Mini!
Best Waffle Iron For A Family
If you have a big family (or just really love chaffles like I do), you may also want to consider getting a waffle maker that will cook multiple miniature waffles at once.
The Burgess Brothers ChurWaffle Maker is very popular in the keto community, and it can make four waffles at a time! The mini waffle makers are great, but if you are making keto strawberry shortcake chaffles for the whole family, it could take a while making one at a time.
No matter what you choose, your chaffles will turn out great, and you will love this amazing new invention called the chaffle!
Cleaning Your Mini Waffle Iron
Cleaning your mini Dash waffle maker is so easy already, but if you want to make it even easier, consider these silicon basting brushes. They make cleaning the nooks of a waffle maker so much easier!
You can also use these silicon basting brushes to spread the butter on the chaffles before you coat them in cinnamon and sweetener! A good set of silicon basting brushes is always good to have in the kitchen!
How To Make Keto Snickerdoodle Chaffles
Gather your ingredients.
- Mozzarella cheese
- Almond flour
- Lakanto Golden Sweetener
- Vanilla extract
- Baking Powder
- Cream of tartar
- Lakanto Classic Sweetener
- Preheat your waffle iron so that it is hot when the batter hits the waffle maker!
- Whisk all your ingredients together until well combined in a small bowl.
- Place HALF of your batter (unless your using a full size waffle iron) on to the mini waffle maker and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes. Do not overfill or you will have a huge mess! Trust me, I know all too well about that mess.. haha!
Crispy Chaffle Tip: Allow the chaffles to cool completely before eating. Chaffles tend to get crisper as they cool so patience is key!
- Melt butter and apply it to both sides of the chaffle with a basting brush. This will allow the cinnamon and sweetener to stick to the chaffle!
- Coat the chaffle in your cinnamon and sweetener mixture. We prefer to have the cinnamon and sugar on a plate and then just press each side of the chaffle on to the mixture.

Best Keto Friendly Sweetener To Use For Coating
As always, we prefer to use Lakanto’s Monkfruit for this recipe. Monkfruit is an all natural sweetener that is zero glycemic, has a 1:1 ratio to sugar, tastes wonderful, and has no cooling aftertaste.
If you’ve never tried monk fruit before, or if you just need to restock, shop Lakanto’s website and use our code, “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout to save 20% OFF of your entire purchase! That includes not just monk fruit but all of their amazing products that we know you will love.
How To Store Chaffles
Chaffles keep extremely well in the refrigerator and the freezer. Store your chaffles in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator and they will stay good for 2-3 days. Store them in the freezer and they will stay good for at least two months. If you plan to store them long term, I recommend wrapping them in aluminum foil and then placing them in a freezer bag, this will prevent them from getting freezer burn and drying out.
Can You Freeze Chaffles?
If you plan to freeze multiple chaffles, I would highly reccomend wrapping them individually or flash freezing them on a baking dish before storing them in freezer bags. If you freeze still-warm chaffles, the steam that will be released will cause the chaffles to eventually stick together.
How To Reheat Chaffles
Reheating chaffles can be as simple as popping them in a toaster for a minute or two. However, if you freeze these snickerdoodles with the cinnamon and sweetener already on them, you may want to reheat them in a toaster oven or conventional oven so that the mixture does not fall off in the toaster.
Chaffles reheat extremely well and make for great snacks and quick breakfasts!
Can I Use A Regular Sized Waffle Maker?
Yes! Just double the recipe and then pour half of the mixture on to the waffle maker at a time like normal. Since these chaffles probably won’t be used as sandwich bread or buns, the larger size shouldn’t be a problem at all.
Can I Use Coconut Flour Instead of Almond Flour For Chaffles?
Coconut flour is wonderful in chaffles! It will likely make your chaffle a bit more spongy, so if you prefer that sort of consistency then you will love coconut flour.
Just note that coconut flour and almond flour do not have a 1:1 ratio!! That means that, for example, 1 cup of almond flour is not the same as 1 cup of coconut flour! Instead, 1 cup of almond flour is equal to about 1/3 cup coconut flour.
This is because coconut flour is extremely absorbent. If you use too much, your chaffle will turn out really dry and probably inedible. If you use coconut flour, be sure to use about 1/3 of the amount of almond flour in the recipe!
