Oreo Keto Chaffles: The Easiest Version
Okay hear me out, i think that Cookies and cream. is one of mankind’s greatest inventions, second to maybe the internet. On a serious note, cookies and cream – specifically, Oreos – are a beloved combination that is enjoyed in many forms. Some favorites are ice cream, cake, and in this case, a Keto Chaffle!
By now, you have probably heard of the chaffle. It is the latest and greatest keto invention, and for good reason!
Chaffles are usually a combination of cheese and egg, sometimes mixed with other baking agents like baking powder, but this is the bare bones, basic version of the chaffle. To see this version of a chaffle, see our Easy Traditional Keto Chaffle Recipe.
There is so much more you can do with a chaffle than just making it with cheese and egg! There are breakfast chaffles, sandwich chaffles, and even dessert chaffles, like these sweet chaffles.
Of course, there are slight variations depending on what kind of keto chaffle you are making. For example, this chaffle contains no cheese!! These are chaffles without cheese! So don’t worry, you aren’t about to get into a chocolatey cheesy mess. Dessert chaffles use heavy cream and other ingredients in place of eggs. While there are countless ways to enjoy a chaffle, this sugar free oreo chaffle happens to be one of my all time favorites!
Chocolatey, cakey chaffle combined with sweet, creamy filling makes for an amazing keto dessert chaffle!
What Is A Chaffle?
As I mentioned earlier, chaffles are the latest keto craze; they have been popping up in every keto Facebook group, and folks are going crazy with a million different variations.
We have certainly been enjoying experimenting with sweet chaffles and think we have come up wit some pretty amazing options!
While this Oreo Keto Chaffle may be my all time favorite, some others that top my list include Easy Keto Red Velvet Chaffles, Keto Cinnamon Roll Chaffles, and Keto Peanut Butter Cup Chaffles. The peanut butter cup chaffle tastes just like a Reeces!
The basic chaffle is made with just two ingredients: egg and cheese, and it is often used as a bread substitute. It’s pretty good, but there are so many other great ways to enjoy a chaffle.
It’s probably called a chaffle because, well, it is basically a cheese waffle. But the chaffle has become so much more than that!
A keto chaffle is also typically rather small, measuring about 4 inches across, and that is because of how it’s made! But, more on that in a minute.
With a few basic tweaks, you can have any kind of chaffle your heart desires, like this Keto Oreo Chaffle!
What Mini Waffle Maker To Use:
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!
If you have a big family (or just really like chaffles), consider a larger mini waffle maker! The Burgess Brothers ChurWaffle Maker is popular in the keto community, it can make four mini waffles at a time!
Ingredients Needed For Keto Oreo Chaffle
Like all of our other keto chaffle recipes – and really, all of our recipes, period – this one is super simple and only requires a few common ingredients that you almost certainly already have in your kitchen!
An egg, some unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut flour, vanilla extract, sweetener, baking powder, and heavy cream are all you will need to whip up this yummy keto oreo chaffle! That means you can get started right away!
Of course, if you will be making any modifications or substitutions, you will want to make sure that you have any additional ingredients on hand before you begin crafting this mouthwatering sweet oreo chaffle.
To make this recipe, all you really need to do is whisk together all of the listed ingredients in a bowl. It really is that simple!
Reminder: Make sure you remember to only use half of the batter per chaffle, since this recipe makes two chaffles!! If you pour all of your batter in at once, you will end up with one big chaffle and one big mess!
Even though it will be hard, have some patience and only cook half the batter at once. Unless, of course, you have a double waffle maker or multiple mini waffle makers.
You want to fill your mini waffle maker with just enough of the batter that all of the space is taken up on the inside without any overflow. This might take some practice, but you’ll definitely get the hang of it!
My first few chaffles definitely didn’t come out looking pretty. Even though it might only be a little bit, because of the baking powder in this recipe, the batter will expand ever so slightly as you cook it so even if if looks okay before you close the top, over filling your waffle maker will result in a mess.
For easy waffle maker clean up, I’ve found these Silicone Basting brushes to work best! They really make it easy to clean evert nook and cranny of the waffle maker. Find them HERE on Amazon!
Oreo Filling Ideas
For the filling for this keto oreo chaffle, we simply whipped some heavy cream and smeared it between the two chaffles. However, there are a ton of other ways you could fill your keto oreo chaffles.
You could consider making:
- A buttercream frosting – 2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp powdered sweetener, 1/4 tsp vanilla
- A cream cheese frosting – 2 tbsp cream cheese, 1 tbsp powdered sweetener, 1/4 tsp vanilla
- ChocZero’s Hazelnut Spread – If you’re a true chocolate lover, there is nothing better!
Variations To This Recipe
Just like the frosting, there are endless ways in which you can customize this recipe.
If you want to change the chaffle itself, consider:
- Swapping out coconut flour for almond flour. Coconut flour does not have a 1:1 ratio to almond flour though, so be careful! Generally, 1 part coconut flour is equal to about 3 parts almond flour.
- Using Lakanto Powdered Sweetener instead of classic granular sweetener. This will make your chaffle just a bit sweeter. Use our discount code “BUTTERTOGETHERK” on Lakanto’s website for 20% of your entire purchase HERE. We love using Lakanto sweeteners because they are seriously the best tasting and no aftertaste or cooling effect!
- Add a teaspoon of cream cheese to the batter to make it thicker and richer!

|1 tbsp Heavy Cream|
|1 tsp Coconut Flour|
|1/2 tsp Baking Powder|
|1/2 tsp Vanilla|

Preheat mini waffle maker.
In a smal bowl, combine all chaffle ingredients.
Pour half of the chaffle mixture into the center of the waffle iron. Allow to cook for 3-5 minutres.
Carefully remove and repeat for second chaffle. Allow chaffles to sit for a few minutes so that they crisp up.
For filling, we like it simple and just went for whipped cream. See notes below for alterate filling.
- We preffered a simple feeling for this and simply used whipped cream. However if you'd like a cream cheese filling, use: 1 tbsp Lakanto Powdered Sweetener, 2 tbsp cream cheese (softened), and 1/4 tsp vanilla. Combine all ingredients and spread frosting once chaffle is cooled to room temperature.
