Chaffles are the latest trendy recipe in the Ketogenic Diet world. If you know anything about the Ketogenic Diet, you understand that cheese is the new bread. Chaffles are simply cheese + egg, but you don’t have to stop there. The popularity of Chaffles is through the roof because it’s so customizable. You can have a chaffle for literally every meal of your day including dessert and never get bored. You seriously will not miss bread when you learn how to make this incredibly simple Keto recipe.
Keto Chaffle Ideas
Before you start, I recommend picking up a mini waffle maker. The most popular one is this Dash Mini Waffle Maker, but if you don’t want to wait several weeks to get yours, this Nostagia Mini Waffle Maker takes second place. The key to a great Chaffle is in its crispiness, so the need for a non-Belgian waffle maker is very important. If you want to have a full-sized waffle that’s almost identical to Waffle House, this All Clad Waffle Maker is the Cadillac of all waffle makers with its 7 browning settings. This Cuisinart one is a solid second place and a much cheaper option. Don’t forget the waffle tongs!
The Original Chaffle Recipe
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 cup of Shredded Cheese
- 1 tablespoon Almond Flour (Optional)
- Preheat waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- In a small bowl, add egg and shredded cheese and mix well.
- Add the optional Almond Flour to the bowl if desired. Mix well.
- Once the waffle maker is ready, pour 1/2 of batter (if it’s a single waffle maker) into the waffle maker.
- When the waffle is about halfway cooked, open the waffle maker and sprinkle a little cheese on top of the batter. Then, close the waffle maker and finish cooking. This extra cheese will make a nice crispy finished product.
