Low Carb Protein Chaffle with Salted Caramel Collagen Syrup Recipe
This easy keto waffle recipe is ideal for a post workout meal or when you want to feed your family a delicious high protein breakfast to keep them full until their next meal. I know when I come back from the gym, I am starving especially if I workout fasted. This chaffle recipe can be made in a few minutes - waffle, syrup and all!
The syrup in this waffle recipe has an added protein bonus with the addition of the collagen in the syrup. This syrup really is delicious and nutritious!
In case you are new the chaffles, a keto chaffle is a low carb waffle that is primarily made of egg and cheese. Many recipes will call for either mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese or cream cheese. You can use any type of cheese. This recipe uses mozzarella cheese, but you can substitute with 1 oz of cream cheese if you prefer.
Adding protein powder to this keto waffle recipe not only provides extra protein to meet your high intensity lifestyle, it also provides substance to the chaffle and takes away from the egg or cheesy flavor. In this recipe, I use Vanilla Keto Whey Protein Powder by Perfect Keto. This protein powder is keto approved and has a little extra MCT oil for a ketone boost. I’ve been teaming up with Perfect Keto because their keto powders are some of the best out there. You can save 15% off your order when you use my affliate link.
To make keto chaffles, you can use any waffle maker. I have two favorite waffle makers. The mini Dash waffle maker is very popular as it is small and makes the perfect portion of chaffle. These waffles are about the size of an Eggo waffle. It will make about three protein chaffles for one serving of batter.
The other waffle maker I like to use is a belgian waffle maker by Oster. It has adjustable heat so you can make soft or crispy waffles.
There is no need to spray or grease you waffle maker. If it is non-stick, as most are, the cheese will release enough oil to keep the chaffle from sticking to the waffle maker.
The biggest mistake when making chaffles is overfilling the waffle maker with batter. You only need to pour a little bit in the center of the waffle maker. The batter will spread out while it cooks.

Collagen on the Keto Diet
Collagen supplements are allowed on the keto diet. They are recommend to everyone, even if you aren’t on the keto diet. Collagen is beneficial because it will strengthen the skin by improving elasticity and maintain the integrity of your joints.
The collagen I used in the salted caramel syrup recipe is by Perfect Keto. They carry a salted caramel flavor but unflavored collagen will also work in this recipe. I prefer this collagen because it dissolves very easily.
Chaffle and Salted Caramel Collagen Syrup Storage
You can make your chaffles ahead of time because they can be frozen. Let the chaffles cool completely after they are done cooking. Then flash freeze them individually on a plate or pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. Once they have hardened, you can store the chaffles together in a freezer safe storage bag in the freezer. Use a toaster, toaster oven or oven to heat them from frozen.
The collagen syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It will harden once it is cooled. To turn back to a liquid state, heat in the microwave at 30 second intervals until liquid again.
