What is a protein chaffle?

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, takes away from the egg or cheesy flavor and it means that we don’t have to use almond flour or coconut flour in our protein waffles. Look for protein powders that are low carb or zero carb.

Instead of using a whole egg, for a lower fat option, use egg whites. Two egg whites would work to replace the whole egg in this waffle recipe.

    Waffle maker options

    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 waffles 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 keto. Collagen is beneficial because it will strengthen the skin by improving elasticity and maintain the integrity of your joints.

    Storage information and meal prep instructions

    You can make your keto protein waffles 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.
