Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Chaffle Recipe

pumpkin chaffle spread on a table with syrup The beginning of September usually marks the start of pumpkin spice season. Pumpkin Spice Latte emerge. Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin yogurt are littered throughout the grocery stores.

If you are a pumpkin fanatic and are on the prowl for keto pumpkin recipes, this low carb pumpkin spice waffle is for you. This is a chaffle waffle that is flavored with pumpkin and pumpkin spice seasoning to give that classic Fall favorite flavor.

The Keto Chaffle

chaffle A keto chaffle is a low carb waffle that is mostly made of egg and cheese. In this recipe, instead of using cheese, we use cream cheese. The cream cheese will provide texture and stability to hold the keto waffle together.

Besides pumpkin, we also add coconut flour and baking powder to help the waffle rise and fluff up. If you want to use almond flour instead, you can substitute. You will need to add more almond flour (2 tablespoons) since almond flour doesn’t absorb liquid has well as coconut flour.

Best Waffle Maker for Chaffles

I have two favorite waffle makers for making chaffles.The waffle maker by Dash is very popular as it is small and makes the perfect portion of chaffle. It will make two chaffles for one serving of batter.

If you own a larger waffle maker, you can still make chaffles. I love using my waffle maker by Oster. It has adjustable heat so you can get your waffle maker really hot in order to crisp up the chaffle.

One tip for pouring the batter to make chaffles is to pour the chaffle batter in the center of the waffle iron and close it. Don’t try to spread out the waffle batter on your own. The batter will spread out by itself.

Greasing the Waffle Maker

It’s not required to grease the waffle iron before cooking chaffles. The cheese in the chaffle has a lot of fat and it gets released when cooking which helps to keep the waffle from sticking to the waffle iron.

Is Pumpkin Keto?

Pumpkin does contain a higher carbohydrate level compared to many other vegetables; however, if you use it in small amounts, pumpkin is approved on the keto diet.

Pumpkin has many nutritional benefits as well. It is high in Vitamin A and antioxidants. It is also may protect your eyesight due to all the nutrients inside.

The pumpkin used in this recipe is pumpkin puree. Most often it is sold in a can down the baking aisle. Make sure you buy 100% pumpkin puree. Do not get the pumpkin pie filling as this will contain sugars.

Chaffle Storage

You can meal prep chaffles because they can be frozen. Let the waffles cool completely after they are done cooking. Next, flash freeze each chaffle on a plate or pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. After they have hardened, you can store the waffles together in a freezer safe storage bag in the freezer.

To heat from frozen, use a toaster, oven or toaster oven to heat through and crisp up.

Pumpkin Spice Chaffle Toppings and Variations

Pumpkin spice chaffles are delicious when topped with the following:

  • Butter
  • Sugar Free Syrup - my favorite keto approved syrup is by ChocZero. They have many flavors to choose from. Maple Vanilla is my favorite.
  • Whipped Cream
  • Pecans
  • Coconut Chips
  • Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
  • Almond butter or other nut butters
