How To Make Pumpkin Chaffles
Step 1: Start by preheating your waffle maker. I used the Dash mini waffle maker, it seems to be very popular for making chaffles.
Step 2: In a bowl, you are going to mix in your almond flour, eggs, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract. Mix well until fully combined.
Step 3: Now add in your mozzarella cheese. You will work the batter until it is consistent and really well mixed.
Step 4: Now in your preheated waffle maker, spray with cooking spray. Then pour 1/4 of the chaffle batter in the iron.
I cooked for around 3 minutes, but depending on your waffle maker it might vary in time.
I am able to get 4 chaffles out of this batter. But depending on how big or small you make will vary on how many you get.
Best Cheese To Use For Dessert Chaffles
For this keto pumpkin spice recipe I used mozzarella cheese. But, I have seen other recipes that are similar and reach for a room temperature cream cheese and find success.
If you want to try cream cheese you could give it a whirl. I just found the mozzarella is mild in flavor and works really well with the almond flour.
So feel free to swap it out for this keto dessert pumpkin pie chaffle.
Pumpkin spice chaffles take basic pantry essentials, that you can toss together in minutes. Here are a few of the essential ingredients you need to make this recipe.
Almond Flour | Almond flour is one of my favorites when making chaffles. It allows for a gluten free recipe, and also a keto-approved recipe. I love making chaffle recipes with almond flour!
I use finely ground almond flour for a better texture, otherwise, you will notice the flour.
Eggs | Eggs are going to help form your chaffles together. It is the binder that will keep your chaffle stuck together and allow it to cook up to a nice and fluffy texture.
Pumpkin Puree | Since this is a pumpkin spice recipe we need that pumpkin puree. While it offers a pretty orange color it also adds that essential pumpkin flavor paired with the pumpkin spice.
Topping Ideas For Pumpkin Spice Chaffles
Pecans | Crushed pecans will add a nice crunch to your breakfast chaffle. You can add chopped or halves. Or feel free to swap with another type of nut.
Syrup | Opt for a sugar free syrup to drizzle on top! Any of your favorite brands works.
Butter | Doesn’t butter make everything taste better? Add a slab of butter!
