Oh Snap! It's gingerbread season!

Updated: Feb 18, 2022

Snap into your day with this healthy and delicious gingerbread chaffles.




With Christmas right around the corner, what is more appropriate than a healthy and delicious gingerbread recipe? And while most people are likely posting their latest cookie recipe, I prefer to bring up my game a bit and focus on foods that fill you up. And if you have seen or tried my healthy peanut butter cup chaffles, than you know where these are going.


If you haven't heard of a chaffle before, don't worry, I will give you the "skinny". A chaffle is a version of a waffle that is made out of egg, cheese and almond flour. Sounds weird right? But trust me, all of my friends who have tried these have quickly fallen in love! So be adventurous and give it a try. And what is even better about a chaffle over a conventional waffle is that it has a good amount of protein and is more dense, so you don't feel hungry after a few hours. And what is even better about this healthy gingerbread chaffles, is they are inherently gluten free, low carb and ketogenic friendly. So if you are trying to lose some weight or just dealing with some health issues, then i would highly recommend this weekend brunch favorite.


And let's face it, who doesn't want a healthy breakfast that taste similar to a gingerbread cookie? This is one of these types of foods that you will want to have over and over again. So make sure you save it, because these are simple to make and will quickly become a family favorite.


Honestly, what is better than a waffle that is filled with delicious icing and topped with my favorite Lily's chocolate chips? I can't currently think of anything.


So instead of belaboring this, let's get cooking!
