Let’s be honest…In my pre-keto life I could polish off a sleeve of Oreos in one sitting. That was my past life. I now know that way of eating would put me in a tailspin. However, I really enjoy Oreos with their crunchy, chocolatey cookie and creamy center filling.
I know the Oreo-brand real cookie is filled with a bunch of ingredients that spike my insulin. With 25g carbs for 3 little cookies my blood sugar would go through the roof eating from the bag mindlessly. So, let’s try to recreate my old favorite using low carb alternatives. Ultimately this recreation dropped the carb count down to 3g net carbs per serving.
Is it a Chaffle?
A chaffle is really more of a cheese thing. This recipe has no cheese. So I’m not sure this is technically a chaffle. However, this is made in the mini dash waffle maker, which is also used to make chaffles. Sooooo I call this recipe a chaffle based on the shape and ease of making a quick treat.
Technically this recipe is 2 servings. The recipe for Oreo Chaffles is one large round cookie that you cut in half to make two servings. If you cut the whole chaffle recipe into fourths then each fourth would be about the size of an Oreo cookie from the store.
As mentioned above, this recipe for Oreo Chaffles is made on my mini dash waffle maker. If you do not own a mini dash you can use any waffle maker. Be sure to adjust cooking time and macros as it will dependant on the waffle maker you use.
Be sure to place the mini dash or waffle maker on top of a plate or paper towel to catch any drippings. IF YOU OVERFILL YOUR WAFFLE MAKER IT WILL BUBBLE OVER. TRUST ME.
If you are a low carb baker (or just have been doing keto for a while) you will probably have all the ingredients already in your pantry.
- Low Carb Sweetener (granular and powdered)
- Cocoa Powder
- Baking Powder
- Baking Powder
- Cream Cheese
I like to use Lakanto brand “Classic” (in the red bag). It’s a granular blend of monkfruit and erythritol. You can use any brand of granular or powdered low carb sweetener you like. **IMPORTANT** For the cookie part you will use granular texture. The filling is made with POWDERED low carb sweetener.
After the waffle maker has heated up, simply pour about half the batter into your mini waffle maker. Be careful not to overfill the waffle maker as this will spill over if overfilled. Usually I place a small plate under my waffle maker to catch any drippings.
Cook your Oreo Chaffle for about 2 -3 minutes. Using and fork, carefully remove the Oreo Chaffles from the mini dash waffle maker. Set aside to cool. Repeat the process with the second chaffle.
While you are cooking the Oreo Chaffles you will prepare the creamy filling in a small bowl off to the side. Be sure that your cream cheese is soft and room temperature. Mix together the soft cream cheese with POWDERED low carb sweetener.
Using the back of a small fork simply mash all the ingredients together until smooth and spreadable.
Once your Oreo Chaffles have cooled a bit they will start to firm up. Simply spread on the low carb sweetened creamy filling on to one of the chocolate cookie disks. Top with the other disk to form a large Oreo Chaffle cookie.
This full recipe is 2 servings or half of the large oreo cookie. You can slice the cookie in half to have two servings or in quarters for a more bite sized portion.
For all leftover Keto Oreo Chaffles place them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for up to a week.
