What is a Peanut Butter Chaffle?
A peanut butter chaffle a keto approved peanut butter flavored waffle that is primarily made out of peanut butter, egg and cheese. It’s called a chaffle because it’s made out of cheese and it’s a waffle.
Chaffle Waffle Iron
You will need a waffle maker to make chaffles. A popular waffle maker is the mini waffle iron by Dash because it is small and makes the personal sized chaffles.
A larger waffle maker can still make chaffles if that is all you have. Just pour the chaffle batter in the center of the waffle iron and close it. You don’t need to spread out the waffle batter. The batter will spread out on it’s own creating a perfect chaffle.
Store chaffles in the refrigerator or freeze. They can easily be reheated and cripsed in the toaster or oven.
To freeze peanut butter chaffles, let them cool completely after cooking. Then flash freeze each waffle on a plate or pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. Store the nut butter chaffles together in a freezer safe bag.
To reheat chaffles, pop them in a toaster or oven until heated through and crisp.
Is Peanut Butter Keto?
Peanut butter is not the most ideal food on the keto diet because peanuts are higher in carbohydrates and some peanut butters contain added sugars. It is okay to consume a small amount of it and the two tablespoons in this recipe aren’t going to kick you out of ketosis as long as you don’t go over your carb count. You can always substitute for a nut butter that is higher in fat and lower in carbs like pili nut butter or macadamia nut butter.
