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.
