I don’t know about anyone else’s kids, but mine LOVE chocolate waffles. I make waffles pretty regularly so that we have them at the ready for an easy and filling breakfast. But when I make chocolate waffles, the whole house is ready to devour them as soon as they come off the iron.
My go-to waffle recipe is super simple. I take cream cheese, eggs, softened butter, vanilla, cinnamon, baking powder, coconut flour, salt and some sort of protein powder and blend them all together in my Blendtec until everything is smooth.
After blending, I let it sit for a couple minutes so that the coconut flour can absorb some of the eggs, and then just pour the batter into the preheated waffle iron. They’re done pretty fast and don’t last long on anyone’s plate, either!
You can easily make this recipe dairy-free. You can replace the cream cheese with Kite Hill cream cheese, and you can replace the butter with Nutiva butter flavored coconut oil or ghee.
This recipe makes a large amount of waffles – I can usually get about 28 4×4 waffles. I like to cook once and make enough so we have them ready to go for quick and satisfying meals. But if you want to make less, the recipe is easily halved.
Fluffy Keto Chocolate Waffles
- 8 oz cream cheese (use Kite Hill for dairy-free)
- 8 eggs
- 2 tbsp butter, room temp (use Nutiva butter flavored coconut oil for dairy-free)
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- pinch Himalayan pink salt
- 1/3 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder
- 1 tsp coffee extract
- 1-2 tsp liquid stevia
- Add all of the ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth. You can also use a hand mixer and blend everything together in a bowl.
- Preheat your waffle iron. Allow the batter to sit for a couple minutes so that the coconut flour can absorb some of the egg.
- Pour enough batter to almost fill each waffle mold. This batter does not spread out as much as regular flour waffles do.
- Enjoy them right away! Top with keto whipped cream (heavy whipping cream, vanilla and Swerve or Lakanto Monkfruit) or sugar-free syrup.
