Craving something delicious for breakfast? Just whip up a stack of low-carb neapolitan chaffles! Strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla come together in a dish so delicious, you’ll feel like you’re eating dessert for breakfast.
Sweet, aromatic vanilla. Rich, earthy chocolate. Bright, mildly-tart strawberries. Put them all together, and what do you get?
Yep, you read that right! With these delicious neapolitan chaffles, you can now kickstart your morning with this amazing flavor combination.
Of course, these low-carb chaffles would also make an amazing afternoon snack or even a decadent dessert… but waffles are a traditional breakfast food. Plus, they always make me think of leisurely weekend mornings with my family. So breakfast it is!
And if your family is anything like mine, they will be over the moon to see a stack of neapolitan chaffles on their plate. You’ll be the hero, and they never have to know how easy this recipe was to make.
What Exactly Is a Chaffle?
You’ve probably heard about the “chaffle” as the latest craze in the Keto and low-carb community. But if not, the concept is super simple.
A basic chaffle recipe is just cheese and an egg. That’s it. Mix it up, pour it in a waffle maker, and ta-da! You have an almost-zero-carb waffle.
Chaffles can be enjoyed as everything from regular waffles topped with syrup to bread for your favorite sandwiches. The possibilities are endless.
But if you ask me, the real fun is when you start to add some other ingredients.
A little almond flour and heavy whipping cream makes them fluffier and sturdier while low-carb sweetener and vanilla add to the taste. Then, it’s up to you how you want to flavor them!
For something bright and tangy, you could make a cream cheese chaffle with lemon curd. For something simpler, try using cocoa to make chocolate chaffles or mashed berries to make fruity chaffles.
Or, you could make vanilla, strawberry, AND chocolate chaffles, then stack them up to create this neapolitan deliciousness!
What Is Neapolitan?
Well, it depends on what we’re talking about. For example, if we’re talking about people, “neapolitan” means someone from Naples, Italy.
But when we’re talking about a dessert, it can refer to any treat that combines the trifecta of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla!
We can assume this exceptional flavor combination was invented in Naples, hence the name. It started as side-by-side scoops of ice cream, but these days, you can find it in the form of everything from cheesecake to milkshakes to macarons.
And now you can enjoy it as a stack of chaffles, too!
Toppings For Your Neapolitan Chaffle
Let’s be honest… no matter how delicious a waffle (or chaffle) is by itself, this food is REALLY all about the toppings.
For my neapolitan stack, I like to stay on-theme with a little sugar free chocolate sauce and a few more mashed or sliced strawberries. And some homemade whipped cream, because why not?
You could also throw some sugar free chocolate chips on there with a drizzle of strawberry syrup, vanilla syrup, or both! Check out ChocZero for all your sugar free chips and sugar free syrups! Use code TRINAKRUG to get 10% off!
For the minimalists, maybe you just want to add a pad of butter on top. There’s nothing wrong with that in my book.
Whatever you decide, feel free to have some fun! If you ask me, a stack of waffles should always put a smile on your face.
How To Make Neapolitan Chaffles
Preheat your mini waffle maker. While it’s warming up, grab a microwave-safe bowl and add the mozzarella and cream cheeses.
Heat the cheeses at 30 second intervals, stirring between each one, until they are completely melted and blended together.
Next, add the almond flour and sweetener. Use your hands to knead everything together.
Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl, then add in the heavy whipping cream, egg, and vanilla extract.
Blend on high until a smooth batter has formed. From here, you’ll want to separate the batter into 3 equal portions so you can create the three chaffle flavors. Pour the first portion into your mini waffle maker.
While the first chaffle is cooking, we’ll add our flavors to the other two! Simply add the mashed strawberries to the second portion of batter, then add the cocoa powder to the third portion.
Once the vanilla chaffle has finished cooking, take turns cooking the strawberry and chocolate batters in the mini waffle maker.
When your three chaffles are finished, stack them on top of each other, add a little sugar free whipped cream and chocolate sauce, sprinkle on some additional strawberries if you like, and dig in!
