Keto Strawberry Shortcake Chaffle
If you haven’t tried a chaffle yet, what are you waiting for?! Okay, maybe you’re waiting for your mini Dash waffle maker because they have been out of stock in a lot of stores. But assuming that isn’t that case, you definitely need to hop on the chaffle train soon!
Chaffles are so easy to make and they are so versatile! You can use traditional chaffles as sandwich buns like we did with our Easy Traditional Keto Chaffle Recipe, you can make dessert chaffles like our Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Chaffle and our Best Oreo Keto Chaffles, or you can use them in any other way your heart desires.
This keto strawberry shortcake chaffle is obviously a dessert chaffle, so that makes it a bit different than a traditional chaffle, but more on that later!
This strawberry shortcake chaffle tastes nearly EXACTLY like the strawberry shortcake you know and love! Strawberry shortcake is one of my favorite kinds of desserts.
Every year, not to far from where we live, the Florida Strawberry Festival takes place. Strawberry festivals are pretty common in areas where strawberries are grown, so you have probably been to one yourself.
Strawberry festivals are basically just a fair but with an extra emphasis on strawberries. Everyone knows that the best part about the strawberry festival is the strawberry shortcake! The thick yellow cake, lots of whipped cream, and fresh strawberries come together to make one of the BEST desserts on the planet.
I am not exaggerating when I say that this keto strawberry shortcake chaffle tastes JUST like the strawberry shortcake you get at the fair or at a local strawberry festival. It is that good!
What Is A Chaffle?
Before you can make this strawberry cheesecake chaffle, you should probably know what a chaffle is. As I mentioned, there are all kinds of chaffles out there, but they all are very similar.
The biggest difference is that the traditional style chaffles are made with cheese (hence the name “chaffle” – its a cheese waffle) and egg, and the dessert style chaffles are usually not made with cheese.
To make a chaffle, all you have to do is combine all of the ingredients to make a “batter” of sorts, place it into a mini waffle maker, and let the waffle maker work its magic! It really is as simple as that.
For the traditional waffle, cheese and egg serve as the main two ingredients, and these two are enough to make a chaffle. Some like to add seasonings, bacon bits, or other add ins, but cheese and egg are all you really need to make a chaffle.
For dessert chaffles, you still need an egg, but you will also add in things like coconut flour, baking powder, sweetener, and sometimes even cheese, whether it be cream cheese or another type.
Since this is a dessert chaffle, it has more than just cheese and eggs!
Savory Chaffles VS Sweet Chaffles
There is no such thing as a bad chaffle. They are all good, but they can very different.
Savory chaffles are basically traditional chaffles but with savory add ins like bacon bits, or, they are traditional chaffles with savory foods on top.
I have seen people use chaffles as burger buns, sloppy Joe buns, chicken sandwich buns, grilled ham and cheese buns, and more! As I already mentioned above, the recipe for this type of chaffle is a bit different, but still follows the same basic steps.
Sweet chaffles see a bit more variety. Some dessert chaffles still include some kind of cheese, while others do not. Some include some sort of low carb flour, sweetener, spices, vanilla, or even pumpkin!
There are a million different ways to make a chaffle! It is so easy to find one you would love.
What Mini Waffle Maker To Use
The Mini Dash waffle maker is by far our favorite mini waffle maker to use.
It is simple to operate, so easy to clean, convenient to store, and very reasonably priced. The mini Dash waffle maker will make the perfect sized chaffle in about four minutes, though cook time depends on the recipe.
Best of all, it is available on Amazon, which means you can get it in as little as 1-2 days if you have Amazon Prime.
These mini waffle makers are super popular right now, so if you still don’t have one I would recommend getting one ASAP before they sell out (again)!
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!
Ingredients Needed For Keto Oreo Chaffle
For this keto strawberry shortcake chaffle, you will only need a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
With all chaffles, we start with an egg and then add in some heavy whipping cream, some coconut flour, a bit of Lakanto’s golden monkfruit, a little cake batter extract, and a pinch of baking powder. These are all the ingredients you will need to whip up your chaffle.
The baking powder in this recipe really make our chaffles nice and fluffy, which made them took, taste, and feel exactly like the yellow cake that’s typically used to make a strawberry shortcake.
Don’t be alarmed if your chaffle begins to rise as you cook it. Simple raise the lid of your waffle maker for a few seconds so that it can rise and fall back down, and then rest the lid back onto the chaffle so it can finish cooking.
- Whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
2. Place half of the batter on to the mini waffle maker and allow to cook for 4-5 minutes. Do not over fill! You will have big mess.. speaking from experience, ha!
Cleaning your mini waffle maker is a breeze, but it can be even easier with these Silicone Basting brushes. These seem to work the best at cleaning all of the nooks and grooves of the mini waffle maker. You can get them HERE on Amazon.
Assembeling Strawberry Shortcake Chaffle
There is no wrong way to assemble your keto strawberry shortcake chaffle. As long as your chaffle has strawberries and whipped cream on it, you’re good!
However, here’s how we did it, and it looked and tasted great! First, we played our bottom chaffle on a plate and put a generous amount of whipped cream on it.
Then, we layered sliced strawberries on the whipped cream so that the entire chaffle was covered. If you have a lot of strawberries you want to use, or if you just really love strawberries, you can always add more. Conversely, it wouldn’t hurt to add less.
Finally, we placed our second chaffle on top of the strawberries and whipped cream, and layer more strawberries on top of that chaffle. Then, we added a dollop of whipped cream to the top!
Ta da, now you have a keto strawberry shortcake chaffle!
Strawberry Shortcake Chaffle Topping Ideas
Originally, we wanted to make a strawberry sauce similar to the one we made for our Best No Bake Keto Cheesecake, but decided against it since it requires a few extra steps.
If you want to make a strawberry sauce, I highly recommend it! It is soo worth the extra work.
If you’re on a time crunch though, or if you just don’t want to do all that work for one chaffle recipe, consider microwaving some of this keto-friendlyStrawberry Jam from Nature’s Hallow on Amazon.
I know that might sound silly, but jam is really just a cooled and canned strawberry sauce. Microwave a tablespoon of strawberry jam for 20-30 seconds (or until it melts) and pour it over your chaffles and it will seriously be the best thing you’ve ever eaten (or at least a close second).
Some other ides for this keto strawberry shortcake chaffle are:
- Walnuts or pecans – nuts add a nice crunch to an otherwise soft dish.
- A scoop of keto friendly vanilla ice cream.
- Some sugar free chocolate sauce (or your favorite sauce) – this will add some extra flavor to an already flavorful dish. We use Choczero’s Chocolate Syrup! You can use “buttertogetherkitchen” for 10% off your entire purchase!
