Learn how to make the perfect Keto Chaffles (cheese waffles) at just 1 net carb each with just 2 ingredients in under 10 minutes! These keto chaffles make the ultimate breakfast and keto-friendly buns. 

Keto Chaffles are all the rage now and if you’re on the keto diet then I’m sure you’ve heard about chaffles. Chaffles are low-carb, keto-friendly, sugar-free, and perfect for just about anyone looking to reduce their carb intake! 

Today I’m going to show you how to make traditional chaffles quickly and effortlessly in under 10 minutes. Chaffles are a great “carb” fix in the morning when you’re craving waffles or something bread and are also great for using as a bun for burgers sandwiches, or bread for just about any sandwich.

WHAT ARE CHAFFLES?

The word “chaffle” refers to a waffle made with just cheese and eggs. Basic Chaffles do not contain flour, baking powder, or any other ingredients. The mixture of egg and cheese makes the perfect fluffy waffles that have a slightly crunchy and cheesy exterior. This viral low-carb trend is super keto-friendly, super easy to make, and SUPER low in carbs so it makes the perfect keto bread. 

WHAT WAFFLE IRON SHOULD I USE FOR CHAFFLES?

Chaffles are usually made in this small dash waffle iron. It’s great because it’s very small and makes the perfect size chaffles that can be used as a serving of bun or bread. The 4’’ diameter makes it the perfect size bun, egg muffin, bread, and sandwich size.

It’s super CHEAP (under $10) heats up quickly and is pretty easy to store because it’s super tiny. It also comes in a bunch of cute colors so it’s well worth it if you will be making chaffles or even traditional waffles) regular! 

This recipe makes 4 small chaffles or 2 regular standard Belgian waffle iron-size waffles. Any other waffle iron should work but be sure to fill it just enough to fill the iron. 

WHAT KIND OF CHEESE TO USE FOR CHAFFLES

Chaffles can be made with practically any type of melting cheese. If you will be using the chaffles as a bun or bread, go with shredded cheddar, pepper jack, Monterey jack cheese, or any cheese blend (Mexican blend, taco blend, pizza blend). 

If you are making the chaffles to serve with syrup as waffles, mozzarella may be a better option because it does not have a strong flavor and will taste like regular waffles.

I personally like to use cheddar because I’m a big fan of cheddar so it’s really up to you and what you prefer or what you already have in your fridge! 🙂 

HOW TO MAKE CHAFFLES

Whisk eggs & any melting cheese and place in a mini (or regular size) waffle iron for 2-3 minutes or until crispy and golden.

You will know the chaffles are ready when they have puffed up, developed a crispy crust and pull away from the waffle iron with ease.

WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO CHAFFLE?

Honestly, the possibilities are endless. I will be sharing more chaffle recipe variations in the upcoming weeks (be sure to follow us on Facebook here to get all the updates!).

  • To make a chocolate chaffle: Add 2 tablespoons cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon sweetener to the batter. 
  • To make a pizza chaffle: Add 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce and 1 tablespoon of almond flour to the batter. 
  • To make a pumpkin chaffle: Add 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree, and a tablespoon of almond flour and sweetener to the batter. 
  • To make garlic parmesan chaffles: Add a few tablespoons of parmesan cheese, a dash of garlic powder, and Italian seasoning to the batter. 

CAN I FREEZE CHAFFLE?

Yes, chaffles are freezer-friendly. Place them in a freezer-friendly bag and freeze for up to 14 days. Re-heat in the toaster for a crispy texture or microwave for 30-60 seconds.

  1. I tried these for the first time this morning on my DASH. I used mozzarella and added a cap full of vanilla flavoring, because I wanted breakfast waffles. PERFECT! I had them with blueberries, SF syrup and a side of chicken sausage. I’m low-carb, and the commercial gluten-free mixes aren’t healthy for me (too much starch), so these are great. I’ve been recently looking to buy the cauliflower flats, but they’re too expensive or my stores don’t carry them. Now, I’m going to add riced cauliflower to the batter to make chaffles for avocado toast and buns.

  2. Not bad. Their really just mini egg omelettes. Still a great base to add items to.

  3. Boyfriend likes the one I make for him, I use spicy pepper jack, It’s hotter than the regular pepper jack and has a good kick to it. Makes a spicy chaffle also aged sharp cheddar goes well with the two ingredient recipe and both help with the egginess.

  4. This is the basis of all my Chaffle recipes. I double the recipe and make different flavours for my week. Today I had the pizza version. I chop fine and mix together the ingredients that are my pizza faves. Pepperoni, Onion, Green olive and bell pepper. I add 2 tbsp to the waffle maker and then add the Chaffle mixture on top and set timer for 5 minutes. Made 6!! They come out perfectly and I just top it off with some pizza sauce and YUM. I’m not using this for keto but for gluten sensitive diet.

  5. Remarkable! I’m shocked at how good these are. As a bonus, quick and easy to make.
