Chaffles are an overnight sensation in the low carb/keto world. Adding almond flour gives them a more traditional waffle texture and helps get rid of any eggy taste. 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!

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together egg, almond flour, and baking powder. Stir in mozzarella cheese and set batter aside.

  • Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.

  • 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 for 2 to 3 minutes, and they will begin to crisp up.

Cook's Note:

Using Cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella is a nice variation.

This is a fluffy Chaffel. I added cinnamon and pure vanilla. You cant even taste the cheese or egg. Great substitute for waffels without spiking your sugar Read More

This is a great recipe that can be changed up depending on what you're using them for. I added a dash of vanilla and cinnamon for our morning waffles! I added garlic and onion powder for my tuna melt. For the grilled cheese, I added a little bacon and onion seasoning. The possibilities are endless! Thanks for a great recipe! Cheddar cheese and taco seasonings for a taco burger... see... get creative! Read More

I bought a mini waffle maker yesterday. I have been on the Keto diet for over 3 months and so, of course, I have been jonseing for bread and English muffins for that long. This recipe is my first attempt at any chaffle. I fried up some burgers and "sandwiched" them with these chaffles. It was heavenly! I am going to try other chaffle recipes, but this is a winner! We are going to do sloppy Joes tonight on these chaffles, open faced probably. Yum! Read More

These were great. Just started a low carb with room mate. Doctors orders for him. Very difficult finding low carb breakfast for a fussy eater. These were a hit! Made with cheddar cheese because that was all I had. Read More
