What is a Chaffle?

A chaffle is a waffle but made with a cheese base.  Basically it’s shredded cheese and an egg mixture.  Sometimes for more fluffier recipes, it’s a cream cheese base instead of shredded cheese.  It’s the trendy new keto-friendly bread because it’s low in carbs and it won’t spike your insulin levels causing fat storage.

Upon testing- adding a sprinkle of shredded cheese on the hot waffle maker first, then batter, then a bit more over top will help make a super crispy waffle.

This recipe can be made in a standard size waffle make, BUT they cook perfectly in this Mini Waffle Maker! They are super budget friendly, consider grabbing 2!

Keto Chaffle Recipe Nutrition

Say what you will, do or do not. But these cheese and egg waffles are crazy good! The possibilities are seriously endless. I had read a few posts and mentions on this wild creation and didn’t pay any mind to it at first. BIG mistake!

90-second breads are good, don’t get me wrong.. This Keto 90 Second Bread French Toast Recipe is my favorite! I’ve played around with many of the easy bread recipes, and the french toast is extremely tasty! But whoa…

No wonder the chaffle went viral like overnight. If you know anything about Keto/Low Carb, then you know eggs and cheese are a core staple (unless you are allergic, then there are other options).

How are these so incredibly stupid easy, yet such a huge hit?! I just don’t even know how to react with this right now. Get yourself one (or 4) of these Mini Waffle Makers now and start testing out every flavor your creative self desires!

What Can I Serve with a Chaffle?

Chaffles can be used as a keto-friendly bread or you can serve it as a dessert!  I love to create dessert chaffle recipes and top them with my favorite ChocZero Honest Syrups!  Any flavor would be amazing for a sweet chaffle.

What Type of Sweeteners Can I Use in a Chaffle Recipe?

You will definitely want to use a keto-friendly sweetener but this answer will depend on your taste preference.

I really like these Keto-Friendly Sugar Substitutes:

Lakanto Confectioners 

Swerve Brown

Pyure Organic Stevia Blend

I use all of these sweeteners in many different recipes.  Sometimes I will even mix a few of these sweeteners in one recipe so lesson the cooling effect or aftertaste of one particular sweetener.

I also like the Lakanto Maple Syrup blends too. Hello Chaffle French Toast!!

Can I use a regular waffle iron?

Yes, you can use a regular waffle iron to make waffles. However, if you are looking for a smaller size or more control over crispness and variations, you might consider using a mini waffle iron instead. The regular waffle iron typically produces standard-sized waffles, while a mini waffle iron allows you to make smaller, bite-sized waffles.

If you are using a regular waffle maker, it will be the equivalent of 2 servings so keep that in mind if you are tracking calories, carbohydrates/net carbs, protein, and/or fiber.

Tips for Chaffle Recipes

Is your chaffle tasting too eggy?  Switch out the egg and use two egg whites instead.  This will change the taste and texture and make the chaffle recipe taste less eggy.

Don’t check your chaffle before it’s done cooking!  You must have patience.  This is super important!  If you lift up the cover before the cheese has time to form a crust, it will be a big gooey, sticky mess!  Leave the cover of the waffle maker closed until the time is up.

If you want a crispy chaffle crust, be sure to add 1 tsp of shredded cheese and heat it for 30 seconds before you add the chaffle mixture to the waffle maker.  This will form a nice crispy crust!  This technique is perfect for pizza recipes too.

Are you looking for a more fluffy chaffle recipe?  A fluffy chaffle recipe will use a cream cheese base instead of shredded cheese.  Cream cheese will always make your chaffle fluffy.  These make the perfect dessert chaffles!  My favorite recipe using a cream cheese base like this is this Keto Chocolate Waffle Cake Recipe.

How to Freeze Chaffles?

Make any chaffle recipe ahead of time and make sure it’s cooled completely before you freeze it.

Add the cooled chaffles to an airtight container to freeze them.  They will freeze for up to 3 months!  You can also keep them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days!  We often make a big batch of chaffles and keep them into the refrigerator for the week and freeze the extras.

How to Reheat Chaffles That Have Been Frozen?

Defrost the chaffles by laying them out on the counter for a few hours.  You can also remove them from the freezer the day before you plan to use them and place them in the refrigerator to defrost overnight.

You can use an air fryer, toaster oven or Ninja Foodie on the crisper mode to reheat your chaffles.  They create a nice crust that has a bit of crispiness to it!  It’s pretty amazing!!  I love to do this when I make our Keto Pizza Chaffles ahead of time!  I swear the flavors are way more intense the day after and it makes a world of difference in the flavor.  It’s totally worth it!

  1. I made 4 different kinds tonight! Cinnamon, mexican, chocolate and plain cheese. The plain cheese was colby/jack with a little salt and pepper on top before lowering the lid. Cut in strip and dipped it in ranch. OMG, am I eating french fries? Dipped some in ketchup, yup…french fries!! AMAZING!!

    1. 5 stars
      One large egg has .6 carb, one half cup cheese has .8 carb. So 1.4 carb for the two chaffles. I just made this for the first time, it was ok.. stuff like this is always eggy to me no matter what, although I did like the crispy side where I put the cheese down first. Had it with a sausage patty (a zero carb one) and split it with my daughter. This was my first chaffle ever, so will be trying some more of the recipes here. Also might try with eggwhite to see if it’s better.

  2. 5 stars
    Super easy. I used my old fiber ware waffle iron. Filled two squares. Cooked 4 minutes. Delish! Covered with sugar free syrup. Big smile! Can’t wait to play with variations!

  3. 5 stars
    recipes are fabulous. in the nutrition per serving it says it serves 2. Does that mean that the calories, etc are for 2 or a serving of 1 would be half of those calcs

  4. I already had my Dash mini waffle.But today I got my corn dog maker!! Got it on Amazon cant wait to try it

  5. Haven’t tried them yet. I just saw Tiffany from EmmaLous make them, they look delicious but I don’t like eggs so my question is can you taste the egg once it is all cooked?
