Keto Pumpkin Chaffles with Cream Cheese Icing

When autumn strikes, so too does my craving for all things pumpkin. Truth be told, however, this recipe is delicious the whole year through. With its rusty pumpkin hue, warm blend of spices, and – my personal favourite – topping of cream cheese icing, these keto pumpkin chaffles cannot be beat.

What is a Chaffle?

For those unfamiliar with the term ‘chaffle’, it’s simply a waffle made of egg and cheese. Easy to see where the name comes from!

Chaffles made with egg and mozzarella cheese have a neutral flavour, making them incredibly versatile. You can mix a bit of fruit into them or top them with butter, syrup or jam (sugar free, of course, if you’re keeping things keto). They taste surprisingly like the real thing without all of the carbs or the fuss as you’ll soon see.

  • This recipe uses a very small amount of pumpkin, but you can always freeze leftovers in a small, covered container for up to 4 months. (Covered ice cube trays work well for this.)
