Low Carb Keto Chaffle Recipe

Waffles are a classic breakfast recipe, but have you had a keto chaffle? There are many keto waffles recipes out there but most of them require a lot of ingredients and take time to mix the batter, chaffles are different.

Chaffles are a keto waffle that only require a few ingredients and can be made in less than 5 minutes. As a result, low carb dieters are jumping on board with the keto chaffle craze.

Not only are chaffles easy to make, they are also delicious! The cheese inside the chaffle creates a crispy outer crust, just like a traditional waffle. The inside of a chaffle is chewy. The flavor of a chaffle is on the cheesier side, but once you cover your chaffle with butter and low carb syrup, you can’t tell a difference!

What is a Chaffle?

A chaffle is a low carb waffle that is primarily made up of mozzarella cheese and an egg. The original chaffle recipe calls for one egg and ½ cup cheese. However, there are many different variations floating around. This recipe adds almond flour and baking powder to give the waffle a little more substance, help fluff it up and decrease the cheesy flavor.

Waffle Maker for Chaffles

Any waffle maker will work for making keto chaffles. Many keto and low carb dieters are using the waffle maker by Dash as it is small and makes the perfect portion of chaffle.

If you own a larger waffle maker, you can still make chaffles. Only pour the chaffle batter in the center of the waffle iron and close it. Don’t try to spread out the waffle batter on your own. The batter will spread out by itself creating a perfect chaffle.

Do I Spray Oil on the Waffle Maker to Keep Chaffles from Sticking?

No, there is no need to spray oil or grease the waffle iron before cooking chaffles. As the chaffle cooks, fat will get released from the cheese. This will keep the chaffle from sticking to the waffle iron.

Freezer Friendly Chaffles

Chaffles can be frozen. Once the chaffles are done cooking on the waffle iron, let them cool completely. Flash freeze each chaffle on a plate or pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. Then store chaffles together in a freezer safe bag.

To reheat chaffles, insert in a toaster, oven or toaster oven to heat through and crisp up again.

Chaffle Storage for Meal Prep

Even though keto chaffles are easy to make, some still like to meal prep their chaffles. Chaffles can be made up ahead of time, wrapped up tightly and stored in the refrigerator until use.

To reheat the chaffle, put it in the toaster oven, oven or toaster and reheat to crisp up.

Chaffle Toppings and Variations

There are various toppings and flavor combinations you can add to your a basic chaffle recipe. Here are a few popular chaffle topping ideas:

  • Chaffle pizza – after your keto chaffle is done cooking, top it with 1 teaspoon of marinara sauce, sprinkle of cheese and pepperoni. Broil in the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly
  • Butter
  • Sugar Free Syrup – my favorite keto approved syrup is by ChocZero. They have many flavors to choose from. Maple Vanilla is my favorite.
  • Whipped Cream
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Almond butter or other nut butters
  • Cream cheese with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning
