Chaffles with Almond Flour


This chaffle recipe uses almond flour to create a more traditional waffle texture and help get rid of any eggy taste. These cheesy waffles are an overnight sensation in the low-carb/keto world. Seriously, try them, they're delicious! I use an inexpensive mini waffle maker (such as Dash Mini Maker Waffle) which produces perfect 4-inch chaffles. So many ways to use chaffles, the sky's the limit!

2 4-inch chaffles


  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon blanched almond flour

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • cooking spray


  1. Whisk egg, almond flour, and baking powder together in a bowl. Stir in mozzarella cheese; set batter aside.

  2. Preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  3. Spray both sides of the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray. Pour 1/2 of the batter onto the waffle iron and spread it out from the center with a spoon. Close the waffle maker and cook until chaffle reaches your desired doneness, about 3 minutes. Carefully lift chaffle out of the waffle iron and repeat with remaining batter. Allow chaffles to cool and crisp up, about 2 to 3 minutes.


Use Cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella for a flavor variation.
