What is a Chaffle?
Simply put a chaffle is a waffle made with just eggs, cheese, and some kind of flour. They can be savory, sweet, spicy, or cheesy and are a popular part of a keto or low-carb diet.
Easy Chaffle Recipe
- Chaffles are a guilt-free way to enjoy waffle-style recipes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
- Stay on the low-carb track without feeling deprived.
- These can be made in minutes with minimal cleanup.
- Chaffles can replace hamburger and hot dog buns, or morning toast.
Chaffles are ridiculously easy to make with 3 ingredients that are considered staples in most keto pantries.
EGGS work as a binder and add to the fluffiness, giving these a better texture than just cheese and almond flour can. Plus eggs are such a great source of protein. Omega 3 eggs are highly recommended for extra nutrition.
CHEESE Mozzarella cheese makes a great cheesy waffle, with its mild flavor it’s very versatile—these can even be used in sweet recipes. For a more savory version, try cheddar or even Swiss cheese.
ALMOND FLOUR makes this recipe gluten-free, sugar-free, and absolutely delicious! Coconut flour can be used, or any other favorite low-carb flour substitute. Be mindful of the textures, and adjust as necessary.
- Experiment with using different seasoning blends. Mix in some cinnamon sugar for a breakfast dessert chaffle, or stir in taco seasoning and build a taco salad with ground beef on top of it!
- Replace the bread with chaffles and try making a ham sandwich with tomato and mayonnaise for lunch!
How to Make Chaffles
It truly doesn’t get any easier than this delicious and failproof recipe.
- Whisk the egg and then stir in almond flour and cheese.
- Cook in a waffle iron or chaffle maker (as per the recipe below).
Serve immediately topped with whipped cream and berries, as a sandwich, or as a traditional breakfast waffle.
Time Saving Tips
- Make sure the waffle iron is preheated before adding the mixture. This will ensure the chaffles cook evenly.
- Chaffle batter will blend better and faster if all of the ingredients are at room temperature. Try making the batter the night before, then set it on the counter while making your morning coffee.
- For extra fluffy chaffles try using extra-large eggs!
When making large batches, keep them warm in the oven by laying them in a single layer on a baking sheet until ready to serve.
If there are any leftovers, they can be stored in a zippered bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Or freeze leftover chaffles between sheets of parchment paper in zippered bags for up to 4 months.
When ready to enjoy, the best way to reheat chaffles is in the toaster or the air fryer.
