Chaffles – Low Carb Keto Waffles

Chaffles - Low Carb Keto Waffles

If you are following a low carb lifestyle, then you probably heard of or made these yummy keto-approved waffles.

What are Chaffles-Low Carb Keto Waffles?

I know, by the name you would never tell what it is. I have no idea who gave the name. So Chaffles are waffles made with only shredded cheese and eggs.

You can add different herbs to enchant the flavor, but that is pretty much it. For the best results, I would have to suggest shredding the cheese yourself.

Chaffles - Low Carb Keto Waffles

You will still have marvelous waffles using pre-shredded cheese, but if you do it yourself it is honestly so much better.

I love making these when I am craving a good sandwich, or when I want to pack my kids a low carb lunch. Above all, they are just so tasty and easy to make, plus you only need 2 ingredients which most of us have in our fridge.

It is so easy to upgrade them like add a bit of almond flour, dash of sugar and vanilla to create a tasty low carb sweet waffles.

Although I prefer these savory over sweet because I’ve seen them and I really do not like the idea.

With that being said I have been testing other keto recipes that are full proof and absolutely amazing. I just don’t know which one to post, chocolate or regular. Ahh! Sweet decisions.

I used my regular size waffle maker, which is just fine. I believe any waffle maker would do. My kids really loved these and my husband asked for more.

Well, what’s not to like right? As my daughter, Anna, would say, it is a cheesy omelet made in a waffle form. Oh, and so delightful that I am so sure that you guys going to love.

So this is pretty basic keto breakfast or brunch. Bacon, eggs, and cheese. I should’ve made a few sunny side eggs ’cause I would love it with this. However, this was absolutely perfect.

I served it with some sour cream and just for the presentation, I added crumbles of feta cheese. It just looked like it belonged there.

Wouldn’t you agree? I just loved this plate so much. It hit the spot!

Did you guys ever make Chaffles? Please share it with me in the comments.

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

These tasty, moist and beautiful Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins are absolutely amazing for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

We were quite impressed by the gluten-free all-purpose flour and the way these muffins turned out. Yes, my family tried to eat gluten-free most of the time if we are not doing keto.

I am not saying that pizza or regular pasta never finds its way to our bellies but you know what I mean?! Gluten-free makes us feel better inside and out.

Gluten-Free Banana Cocoa Muffins

These tasty muffins are measured, tested and retested so you can make them without any issues. Seriously, you guys they are super easy.

So, if you have any ripe bananas that should be used just to make these yummy muffins. Also, I wrote in the notes alternative options.

No, you do not have to use gluten-free four or lactose-free milk, or nuts in that matter, just use what you have. All-purpose flour, regular sugar or whole milk and butter would do exactly the same purpose.

You can even shred some zucchini and carrots and use soaked raisins. Oh, possibilities are really endless when you start to play with recipes. Sometimes it works, and hey from time to time it just does not.

These are just wonderful with a cup of tea or coffee. I do not breakfast eater but these hit the spot every time I snack on it with my afternoon coffee.

step by step
step by step 2

Make sure BANANAS are ripe because they are so much better. Peel and mash with the back of the fork. Also, they keep muffins moist as well.

If you have any other substitute for an egg then our ar more than welcome to use it. I love adding eggs into my banana bread or muffins. Coconut oil, lactose-free milk because we use that milk.

step by step 3
muffin recipe

I believe it is really important to measure ingredients for baking. So invest in a good scale. I have a cup scale and I am in love with it. I have similar, so I am linking it from my amazon shop.

Measuring Cup Scale with LCD Display Kitchen Jug Digital Food Liquid Measure Containers Tools

Like I said in the recipe, you may use any type of nuts. I used almonds that I crushed in my blender. Walnuts are wonderful as well as pecans.

If you have nut allergies than skip it and maybe use dried fruit soaked in hot water or liqueur. However, it is not necessary. You can also add some chopped apples.

muffins

Yes, you can make 12 smaller or regular size muffins or perhaps a loaf although you will have to watch on how long you have to bake it. Probably lower temperature at 350F for 45 minutes.

The warm and tasty aroma while they are baking. Well, I have a feeling you guys going to love it.

I would suggest to let these cool completely, about 30 to 45 minutes eating. Okay, I know you want to eat them right away but you will just make them mushy so wait for the best results.

Ingredients

DRY INGREDIENTS

  • 150-160g GF all-purpose flour
  • 7g cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 60g sugar (5-6 tablespoons), I used Truvia sweetener

WET INGREDIENTS

  • 400-500g ripe bananas (14-16 ounces), mash

  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2-3 tablespoons Lactose-free whole milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (190°C)
  2. Measure and prep everything. I mesh bananas and add wet ingredients to bananas right after measuring dry ingredients.
  3. Add wet to dry mixture and combine it together. Lastly, add some type of nuts. You do not have to but it tastes really good. Also, you may add chocolate chips instead. I used crushed almonds but you may use walnuts, pecans or any other on hand. READ NOTES
  4. Now grease a bit muffin cups and add 3/4 of the muffin cup with the batter. Never add all the way to the edge because it will go over so just fill 3/4 and allow these muffins to rise while baking.

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the National Peanut Board. All opinions are entirely my own.

A perfect recipe for Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

This gluten-free peanut butter chocolate bread topped with oats is simply divine. You can toast slices of bread in a pan, make French toast or perhaps a delightful breakfast strata with day old bread.

I must admit it tastes magical! You may even use regular flour and add mashed bananas. We absolutely savour it in any way possible.

I partnered with the National Peanut Board to share my favorite Peanut Butter recipes. What do you think of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread?

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread Recipes

Frequently, I would say that my household runs on peanut-butter. We eat it for breakfast or a snack and many times for lunch as well.

To be completely honest, sometimes we even make breakfast for dinner and serve it with a cold glass of milk or a relaxing cup of tea.

So here is one fun fact about me. Graciously allow me to explain. While my kids grew up eating peanut butter ever since they were able to eat it, I did not taste Peanut Butter before the age of 18. I know! It is probably shocking to so many people.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread Recipe

I genuinely enjoyed everything that included peanuts, but it was not popular treat where I was raised. I do not think we even had it in our markets.

Maybe in some specialty stores, but I never had seen it before I came to the USA. Here is where my love for Peanut Butter blossomed.

That being said, nowadays I eagerly devour it with a spoon when I desperately need a quick snack. A spoon of PB with a piece of delicious chocolate is my daily after a workout.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

I am pretty certain I have caught up to 18 years of not eating it because peanut butter made from roasted peanuts are probably one of my favorite flavors, especially in a decadent dessert.

I truly hope you guys make this recipe with your favorite Peanut butter brand. Now it is your turn to spread the peanut butter love!

I hope you like my tasty Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread.

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread
Yield: 1 Loaf, serves 8

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bread

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 50 minutes
Cooling Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

This gluten-free peanut butter chocolate bread topped with oats is simply divine. You can toast slices of bread in a pan, make French toast or perhaps a delightful breakfast strata with day old bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Swerve Granulating Sugar
  • 1 cup Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 1 3/4 Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 1/4 cup GF Rolled Oats, reserve 1/4 cup for the top
  • 1 cup Chocolate Chunks or Chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Warm up about 2 cups of water and place peanut butter jar in the large cup of a saucepan. This method will soften the peanut butter. It will be easier to incorporate to the smooth constancy with the rest of the ingredients. You may also add peanut butter in the microwave-safe dish and use the melt method until peanut butter is completely soft.
  3. In a large bowl combine warm milk, sour cream, eggs, and soften peanut butter. Using an electric hand mixer, mix all the ingredients until smooth.
  4. Measure all the dry ingredients and combine them together.
  5. Once combined slowly add to the wet and with a spatula to prevent over mixing, combine wet and dry ingredients.
  6. Pour into the loaf pan, lined with parchment paper if possible or use nonstick pan well-greased.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes in the middle rack of the oven.
  8. Make sure to check the bread after 20 minutes of baking. If the top of the bread is browning too fast, cover it with aluminum foil and then continue baking until the bread is cooked.
  9. You may remove the loaf from the baking pan after 10 minutes but allow the bread to cool down completely before slicing.

Notes

You may use:

  • Any brand of Peanut Butter that you prefer.
  • Chocolate or omit if you do not like it.
  • Regular Flour instead of Gluten Free
  • Regular Sugar instead of Swerve
