Low Carb Vegan Chaffle Recipe
This dairy free keto waffle is also vegan. The main ingredients are vegan cream cheese and vegan cheese so this waffle is still considered a chaffle! The vegan keto waffle is thick and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. This recipe makes two servings because each waffle is so thick and filling.
Vegan keto chaffles are quick and easy to make. They are eggless, dairy free and delicious!
How to Make a Vegan Keto Chaffle
Most chaffle recipes are built on egg and cheese; however, if you are vegan you can’t consume either of those ingredients. In this recipe for a vegan chaffle, I use a combination of a flax egg, vegan cheese and vegan cream cheese.
A flax egg is a vegan version of an egg. When flax meal and water are combined let sit for several minutes, the mixture thickens and forms a gel like substance with similar consistency as an egg. The flax eggs provides the same role as a regular egg. It helps give structure to the waffle and holds everything together.
The non-dairy vegan approved cheese and cream cheese, I used in this recipe is by the Daiya brand. They contain no animal, soy, gluten or nuts. It also melts when heated.
If you are wanting to make small waffle, the waffle maker by Dash is very popular and makes the perfect sized chaffles. It will make two chaffles in this recipe.
A larger waffle maker can also be used to make chaffles. This waffle maker by Oster is one of my favorites. It has adjustable heat so you can get your waffle maker really hot in order to crisp up the outside of the chaffle.
When making waffle you can pour the batter in the center of the waffle iron and close it. You don’t need to spread out the waffle batter on your own. The batter will spread out by itself once the waffle iron is closed.
How to Store Vegan Chaffles
Vegan keto chaffles can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. To free the vegan waffles, flash freeze each one for 30 minutes by placing them separately on a plate in the freezer. Once hardened, wrap all the vegan chaffles in a ziploc freezer bag.
To reheat the vegan keto chaffles, place in a toaster or oven to heat through and help crisp up again.
Vegan Waffle Toppings
Even though these vegan waffles are yummy plain with no toppings, consider adding the following on top:
- Sugar Free Berry syrup - add ⅓ cup of berries to a saucepan with 1 tablespoon of erythritol and cook over medium heat until the berries release their juice.
- Sugar Free Syrup - my favorite keto approved syrup is by ChocZero. They have many flavors to choose from. Maple Vanilla is my favorite.
- Coconut whipped cream
- Coconut Chips
- Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
- Nut butters
