Easy Keto Gingerbread Chaffle House Directions

  • 1
    Preheat waffle maker to medium high heat. I used a square, four burner waffle maker.
    Dash waffle maker
  • 2
    Whisk together all of the ingredients for the gingerbread house. Pour gingerbread chaffle batter into the center of the waffle iron. Close the waffle maker and let cook for 3-5 minutes or until waffle is golden brown and set. You want the waffles to be firm so they can stand the weight of the roof, so it's okay to over cook them a little.

    Add icing to a piping bag. Taking four waffles, pipe icing along the bottom and adhere them to your surface. Set up the four wall and pipe frosting along the corners so the walls will stick together.

    To make the A frame of the house, cut one chaffle diagonally in half. The long side of the each triangle will sit against the front wall of the house with icing pipped in between them. To make the roof, pipe icing along the top frame of the A-frame walls and place roof on top. Let sit for 5 minutes before decorating. (Troubleshooting - if you are haveing trouble getting your gingerbread house to stand, use toothpicks for support)

Gingerbread Chaffle

a pile of gingerbread chaffles This gingerbread house is make out of keto waffles - chaffle to be specific. I have a recipe for gingerbread chaffles; however to make the gingerbread chaffles for the chaffle house, you want to use mozzarella cheese instead of cream cheese. Using mozzarella cheese makes the waffle firm and able to with stand the weight of the roof, icing and toppings. You can’t use cream cheese in your gingerbread house chaffle walls because they will be too flimsy and collaspe.

Best Waffle Maker for Gingerbread Chaffle House

waffle maker for gingerbread chaffle house The waffle maker I use for making keto gingerbread chaffle houses is a square, four burner waffle maker. This no mess waffle maker by Dash is my favorite. Ideally, you want a waffle maker that makes square waffles because your house will stand up easier and there will be no addition cutting needed. This waffle maker makes thick waffles too, which is ideal for providing support to our gingerbread house.

You could still use a circular waffle maker. You will need to get creative with cutting to make a level surface. Dash No Mess Waffle Maker

Royal Icing

Fill a piping bag fitted with a small tip (or cut a hole at the end) with sugar free royal icing. Twist the piping bag to push the icing towards the tip and you are ready to start assembling.

Keto Approved Gingerbread House Toppings

Once your keto gingerbread house is assembled, you can decorate your house with all your favorite keto treats. Use keto candies, nuts, berries, pork rinds. Here is a list of keto approved toppings you can use:
