Chaffles: Brie, persimmon and basil with keto maple syrup

I like unusual flavour combinations and in my pre-keto days a favourite summer treat was to eat waffles from a place called Waffle Window. There was always a line. This sweet/savoury waffle was my favourite but the Loaded Berry Waffles were amazing too.

This recipe makes 8 servings. I feel if I’m making Chaffles or Waffles, none of this 2 or 3 only business! The Waffle maker I have makes Chaffles the size of your palm anyhow. One mess for more and they freeze well too.

  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella
  • 1 tblsp fine xylitol sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tblsp cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

In a large mixing bowl

  1. Add all dry ingredients
  2. Mix in wet
  3. Blend well
  4. Heat the Waffle maker well
  5. Place 2 heaped tblsp batter onto Waffle machine
  6. Spread out batter
  7. Cook about 2 to 2 ¹/² minutes or until to your liking
  8. Keep warm for serving
  9. Add your favourite toppings!

My toppings: a slice of Brie, drizzled keto maple syrup, fresh basil, scoop of persimmon (about 2 tblsp) and sour cream.
