What is a chaffle?

A chaffle is a keto waffle that is made of up of mostly egg and cheese. In this chaffle sandwich recipe, we add a few different ingredients to give the chaffle bread a flavor similar to white bread.

Instead of using a whole egg, we use two egg whites. This yields a fluffy chaffle that reminds me of thick fluffy slices of sandwich bread. Just add almond flour for flavor!

We also use mayonnaise as the fat instead of cheese. This helps to give the chaffle sandwich bread more of the Wonderbread flavor.

  • To make the chaffle sandwich bread, you can use any waffle maker. My favorites are the mini waffle maker by Dash since it makes the perfect sized sliced chaffle bread. It’s similar in size to a small slice of bread.

    My other favorite waffle iron is the belgium waffle maker by Oster. This waffle maker has adjustable heat and it is a larger waffle maker, so you can pour the entire batter mixture into the waffle iron. When it is done cooking, cut the waffle in half to get two keto bread slices to make your keto chaffle sandwich.

    Really, you can use any waffle maker to make your keto white bread waffle.

    What kind of mayonnaise to eat on the keto eiet?

    Mayo is keto approved because it is made up of fat. However, if you are trying to eat strict, clean keto, you may not want to use just any mayonnaise on your chaffle sandwich.

    Regular mayonnaise is made using Canola oil and other vegetable oils. Some experts believe these oils are not good for us. If you want to avoid vegetable oils in your diet, you can use mayo made with avocado oil instead. Avocado mayo tastes very similar to regular mayo. In fact, I can’t tell the difference.

    Some of my favorite brands of avocado mayo are by Primal Kitchens and Chosen Foods.

    Are deli meats & cold cuts keto friendly?

    There are two things to be aware of if you are wanting to eat deli sliced meat on the keto diet and in your chaffle sandwich. The first is if you are wanting to avoid preservatives or nitrates. Look for deli meat that says preservative-free or nitrate-free.

    The second is that some cold cuts do contain a small amount of sugar that acts as a preservative in them. Look on the nutrition label and ingredient list to see which ones do. Some brands of deli meat that I find to be safe to eat on the keto diet are Boar’s Head and Applegate.

    Keto waffle storage & freezer instructions

    If you are a keto meal prepper, you can make this chaffle sandwich bread ahead of time. It’s easy to prep up a few days of keto sandwich bread and store them in the freezer or refrigerator; however, nothing tastes better than a fresh, fluffy hot chaffle straight out of the waffle maker.

    To store in the freezer, flash freeze each slice of chaffle bead. Once frozen, wrap in plastic wrap and store all the wonderbread chaffles together in a freezer safe bag.

    To reheat, put in the oven, microwave or toaster to unthaw.

    Enjoy easy keto tomato soup with your sandwich

    A classic lunchtime favorite is tomato soup with a sandwich. You can enjoy both on the keto diet with ease by using keto soups by Power Provisions. I partnered with Power Provisions for this sponsored recipe since they make a line of delicious bone broth based, keto approved soups that are ready-to-cook and only take a few minutes to prepare. Now having a keto soup and sandwich is an easy lunch option.

    1. My family ate out and I was able to make this “bread” by time hubby (aka My Uber eats) was back with food, so I had a DELICIOUS low carb double cheese burger….and I’m a happy FULL wife! 🙂 Thank you Annie!! 🙂

      1. The chaffle batter might seem running but the chaffle cooks and puffs up when you cook it in the waffle maker. This chaffle will be soft like white bread and not crispy like a traditional waffle.

      2. I’ve had the same experience with batter being very runny. I’ve found it helps to let the batter sit for
        a few minutes and let the almond flour hydrate to thicken it a bit. Hope that helps!

    2. I really wanted to love this recipe, but unless you are allergic to cheese, I’d stick to a regular chaffel recipe. This was like eating a soggy egg white omelet.
      PS I love many of your recipes,

    3. This looks delicious. I don’t know if you knew it, but this recipe and photo are in the book Keto Chaffle Recipes Cookbook. I looked inside the book online to see if it would be worth the cost. Many of the recipes seemed to be copied from the internet (although strangely reworded to seem like they were written by a bot at times) so I searched for matching ones and yours came up here. I don’t know if you gave permission for it to be used but I thought I’d give you a heads up.

      1. I wasn’t aware of that. That’s too bad people have to scrape recipes from other bloggers just to make a buck. Unfortunately, there’s not much bloggers can do to stop it. Have heard of many stories of people making e-books with other peoples recipes & content and selling them on Amazon under a fake name. They will do it until they get shut down, then do it again under a different name. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will let Amazon know.

    4. This was my favorite chaffle by far to date. I’ve only been on keto for a month, but have tried numerous other chaffle recipes and for me, they’re too heavy and greasy. I did take your suggestion and used egg whites instead of the whole egg. Whisked before starting each new chaffle in my little Dash machine to keep them fluffy. These were excellent! Made some to freeze, toasted two for lunch with a wonderful, crunchy base for a tuna sandwich. Can’t wait to try with a burger! Many thanks 🙂

    5. I just made my first one. I substituted coconut flour, I used 1/4 tblsp. Then added more, so about 1/2 a tblsp. Its amazing! I love it!

      1. No, you shouldn’t have to if your waffle maker is non-stick. You may have to let them cook longer so that the outside sets. But you could always spray it to be on the safe side.

    6. I love this recipe! I quadruple the recipe and cook all of them at one time. I keep them in the fridge and toast them for Eggs Benedict, grill them in a Philly cheese steak sandwich or a mid-afternoon cheese toast snack. Thanks for developing the recipe and sharing it.

    7. Im new to keto, only 2 weeks in, and this is an absolute revelation!
      Thank you so much, it’s actually like eating bread and you certainly don’t feel like you’re missing out.
      Can’t wait to try your other recipes, thank you again, especially for sharing your knowledge and experience 🥳

    8. Are these freezable? I mean, do they keep their consistency/texture? Sorry if this was already asked, but I didn’t see it.
