Most Common Questions About Chaffle Recipes
What is a chaffle?
A chaffle is a cheese waffle. It’s made with cheese as the base of the recipe instead of flour or nut flour.
Why is it called a chaffle?
It’s called a chaffle because… cheese + waffles = Chaffles! It’s just a clever name that someone in the keto community invented. Pretty cute, huh?!!
What kitchen gadget do you use to make chaffles?
I love my little Dash Mini Waffle maker and I use it all the time. You can use a full-size waffle maker, just be sure you double the recipe in most cases.
Can you freeze chaffles?
Yes, they freeze well! Just be sure to wrap them tightly in an airtight container to keep them fresh longer. You can freeze them for up to a month. I haven’t tested any longer than that.
Can you make chaffles for the whole week at one time?
You can also prep ahead of time and make fresh chaffles for the week. They will stay fresh as long as you keep them refrigerated. To reheat them, simply pop them in the microwave or air fryer to heat them up. The air fryer tends to get them nice and crispy if that’s what you are going for!
Why did my chaffle stick to the grill and make a sticky mess?
I find this happens when you don’t cook your chaffle long enough in the griddle. If you lift it or try to remove it before it’s done, the dough is not cooked all the way through and it leaves the dough sticking on the outside only separating when you open the griddle. I find it’s best to cook most of the chaffle recipes for a minimum of 3 to 4 minutes. If it’s a simple dough with cream cheese, egg, and cheese, you can get away with maybe 3 minutes as a minimum. In some cases, if you have chicken or tuna in a recipe, you may need to cook it even longer. Cook time for protein-based chaffles can be anywhere from 4 to 7 minutes depending on the recipe.
