When you think of Valentine’s Day, Waffles probably isn’t the first sweet treat that comes to mind. If you’re like me, you’re thinking of chocolates and those heart-shaped candies with little sayings like “Be Mine.” While those items are common Valentine’s Day treats, they’re not as sweet as a Churro Chaffle. These Chaffles not only serve as a sweet treat, but they also double up as Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed.
Plus, cooking this in your air fryer means that it’s done in a snap and clean-up is a breeze!
What does chaffle mean?
Chaffle is a relatively new term. It’s also a relatively new concept and one that you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
The word chaffle literally means low carb waffle. Cheese is one of the main ingredients.
Why is it called a chaffle?
It’s actually a fun play on words! You’re literally combining the term cheese and the term waffle to create the chaffle! Clever, tasty, and fun.
Can you freeze chaffles?
You’ll need to freeze them in a way that they don’t stick together. I recommend using parchment paper or nonstick barrier between the chaffles. When you’re ready to unthaw them, you won’t have to worry about them tearing in the process. Nobody wants a torn chaffle!
How do you reheat chaffles?
There are a number of ways to reheat chaffles. The most convenient method is microwaving them for a few seconds. The microwave won’t make them crispy, but it will make them soft and hot.
If you’re wanting a crispy reheated chaffle, try putting them in your toaster.
Another method is reheating them in the Air Fryer. This will ensure they are also just a bit crispier than in the microwave too.
Any of these recommended reheating methods for chaffles is fine and is totally up to you.
How many carbs are in almond flour?
If you’re on a low carb diet, counting carbs is probably a big deal. Since this chaffle recipe uses almond flour, you’ll find that 1/4 cup of almond flour has about 6 grams of carbs in it. This will give you a good estimate of what you can expect and also use it as a measuring tool for other recipe carb counts in your wheelhouse of recipes.

Tips for making Air Fryer Churro Chaffles
We love making these air fryer churro chaffles, they’re a hit every time we do. Here are a few tips that I’ve learned along the way. They remind me of my beloved churros from Korea!
- Make certain to test each chaffle with a toothpick before you take it out of the air fryer. You’re going to want to make certain each one is cooked all the way through and not take a chance.
- Make it to your liking. If cinnamon isn’t your thing, try powdered sugar, honey or some freshly chopped strawberries or blueberries.
- Eating them hot delivers the best flavor! This keto waffle is seriously delicious.
How to store leftover chaffles
Since there is cheese in this recipe, you need to store any leftovers in the fridge. Just put them in a bag or container with a lid and place them in the fridge. I recommend placing a nonstick barrier (e.g. parchment paper) between the chaffles to ensure they don’t tear when pulling them out of the container.
Other reasons to make Air Fryer Churro Chaffles
Just because this happens to be perfect for Valentine’s Day, it doesn’t mean that you can’t make it at other times of the year. There’s always a reason to make heart-shaped foods. Give them to your friends and family when they’re needing a pick-me-up or just when you want to show someone love. It’s really as simple as that.
If you’ve volunteered to bring food for a meal train, these Chaffles are a nice suprise.
I’m a big believer that food is also a way to show love so if you can make a fun recipe. Share it with those that you care about. Sit down together at the table and enjoy these heart-shaped Keto waffles. They’re certain to bring a smile to your face and are a great way to start the day.
This low-carb recipe is a great treat for anyone who is living a low-carb lifestyle. Who says that you have to give up all the tasty treats just because you’re eating low carb? This chaffle recipe proves that you can eat low carb and enjoy every bite with ease!
