A Chaffle is a Keto Waffle

The keto waffle made up of mostly egg and cheese is called a chaffle. This recipe uses cream cheese as the cheese element. The cream cheese will provide texture and stability to hold the keto waffle together. Plus it adds a creamy taste and helps to decrease the eggy flavor from the egg.

Fresh squeezed lemon juice and zest are added to this chaffle to give it an authentic lemon flavor. If you don’t have a lemon, you could substitute with bottled lemon juice and omit the zest; however, the chaffle might not have as concentrated of a lemon flavor.

Waffle Makers

One of the most popular waffle makers for making chaffles is the waffle maker by Dash. It is small and makes the perfect Eggo sized chaffle. It will make two chaffles for one serving of batter.

Larger waffle makers work well for making chaffles too. This waffle maker by Oster is an excellent option. It has an adjustable temperature knob so you can crank up the heat to get a crisp waffle.

Chaffle Making Tip #1: Pour the waffle batter in the center of the waffle maker. Don’t try to spread it out. The chaffle batter will spread out on its own once the waffle maker is closed.

Chaffle Making Tip #2: There is no need to grease the waffle iron before cooking chaffles. Most waffle irons have a non-stick coating and the cheese in the chaffle has a lot of fat and it gets released when cooking which helps to keep the waffle from sticking.

Chaffle Making Tip #3: You chaffle needs to cook for a long time. If you open up the waffle maker and it is slab of melted cheese, close it up and let the waffle cook some more. It will thicken and harden the longer it cooks.

Is Lemon Keto?

Lemon is keto! Lemon is a fruit that is very low in carbohydrates so it is often used in low carb cooking or baking.

Chaffle Storage and Reheating Instructions

Chaffles can be stored in the refrigerator or frozen. If you are going to freeze your chaffles, be sure to flash freeze them on a plate for about 30 minutes before packing them all together in a freezer safe bag.

To reheat chaffle, use a toaster or oven to heat through and crisp up.

  1. So yum! I did not make the glaze and instead used 1 tablespoon of Good Good brand sugar-free raspberry jam. It was perfectly sweet and tangy.
