Vegan Keto Chaffle Waffle Recipe


A deliciously thick and crispy vegan keto waffle that can be made with just 4 simple ingredients and under 5 minutes!

Scattered over the internet are tons of chaffle recipes with flavors like peanut butter, pizza and there’s even a chocolate chaffle. Chaffles are a popular keto waffle recipe made with egg and mozzarella cheese, but they aren’t for everyone, especially if you have a sensitive to dairy, eggs or are a keto vegan.  This dairy free keto waffle is a chaffle made without egg or cheese. That means it’s a vegan keto breakfast idea.

The main ingredients in these vegan keto waffles are dairy free cream cheese and vegan cheese so this waffle is still considered a chaffle! And it is still thick and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside just like the original cheese chaffle recipe.

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.

Besides the dairy free cheese,  I use a flax egg in place of a regular egg. 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.

This recipe makes two servings because each waffle is so thick and filling. Top with your favorite sugar free syrup like keto strawberry sauce or even a dollop of whipped coconut cream.



How to make vegan chaffles

  1. Combine ingredients – flaxseed meal, water, dairy free mozzarella cheese, coconut flour, dairy free cream cheese, salt – for this dairy free chaffle in a small bowl.

Waffle makers best for chaffles

If you are wanting to make small waffles, 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.

Waffle topping ideas

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
  • Coconut whipped cream
  • Coconut chips
  • Keto chocolate chips
  • Nut butters – peanut butter, almond butter or macadamia nut butter keto friendly

Storage information

Vegan keto chaffles can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. To freeze 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 egg free 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.

  2. Hi loved you recipe but if you’re vegan you should try to avoid coconuts as you can’t be sure if monkeys aren’t made to pick them.
