A chaffle is a waffle made of cheese and eggs which makes it low carb and keto-friendly.
Here are the two chaffle recipes I switch between:
1. The Classic Chaffle
Makes 2 with the Dash mini waffle maker. Each chaffle is 1 net carb.
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup of shredded cheese (reserve 1-2 tablespoons)
Use mozzarella if you’re not looking for a cheese-y flavor, but if you’re up for the cheesiness then definitely use cheddar.
Mix the ingredients, but reserve a small handful of cheese to lay down onto the waffle maker before adding batter and then a bit more afterward – this helps to keep the waffle from sticking and to give crunch.
I generally go back to this recipe even though it has a more egg-ier taste because it’s two ingredients and I’m a lazy bum.
2. The Sandwich Bread Chaffle
Need a vessel for cream cheese, jam, peanut butter or to serve as bread or a base for dessert? Use this. Each chaffle is 2 net carbs.
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tsp water
- 2 tbsp (28g) softened cream cheese
- 4 tbsp almond flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- pinch of garlic (optional, if going the savory route)
Cook in waffle maker.
If I weren’t such a lazy bum, I’d make this version all the time. I discovered this recipe on the Serious Keto Youtube.
