Keto Chaffle Recipes Plus Recipe Video

April 17, 2020



Keto Chaffles

In case you've missed out on the social media buzz, chaffles are one of the latest low-carb bread replacement crazes. They're a keto-friendly waffle made with cheese and eggs. (Chaffles equals cheese plus waffle.) More simple than cloud bread and other homemade keto-friendly bread alternatives, chaffles are really just waffle-shaped cheese omelets. When made with a waffle iron, the cheese creates a crisp crust similar to a traditional toasted waffle made with grains.

Chaffle Recipe: How to Make Chaffles

The easiest way to make a chaffle: Use a waffle maker. You could technically cook chaffles in a pan or in the oven, but you won't get the unique waffle shape and aesthetic if you don't use a waffle maker. 

Keto Chaffles

You can make chaffles from the two-ingredient recipe above (eggs and cheese), but we wanted more structure and that crisp bite that freshly toasted waffles have. We added a bit of almond flour and either collagen peptides or whey protein.

Equipment needed: waffle maker

Ingredients

Instructions

Plug in your waffle maker. We used an 8-inch waffle maker with a nonstick coating (note: We still found it easier to remove the chaffles after spraying the inside of the waffle maker with Avocado Oil Spray.).

Heat the waffle maker for a minute or two (some waffle makers will have a light that turns red on the outside when it's ready to use). Spray the inside grates with Avocado Oil Spray.

In a mixing bowl, crack in one egg. Add shredded cheese, almond flour, and collagen peptides. Whisk the mixture together with a whisk or fork until combined.

Pour chaffle mixture inside the middle of the waffle maker. Spread the chaffle mixture out on the bottom grate a bit with the back of a fork.

Close the waffle maker. Cook the chaffle for 3–4 minutes. Open the waffle maker and, using a spatula, carefully remove the chaffle and place on a plate.

Ranch and BBQ Ranch Chaffle recipe serving ideas: The addition of creamy, herb-studded Ranch Dressing, and the creamy and slightly smoky flavor of BBQ Ranch Dressing make these chaffles ideal as low-carb sandwich bread substitutes. Simply split the Ranch Chaffle in half and use each half the way you would use sliced bread. Try a simple BLT (bacon, lettuce, and tomato) or BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado) sandwich with the Ranch Chaffles—spread the chaffles with Primal Kitchen Garlic Aioli or regular Mayo and pile up the fixings.  

Dreamy Italian Chaffle (Savory)

Dreamy Italian Chaffle

Cook according to the instructions above in the plain keto chaffle recipe.  

Serving suggestion: We loved a simple turkey sandwich with the creamy Italian-spiked chaffle. Add bibb lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced turkey, and sprouts or microgreens, and a generous dollop of Pesto Mayo on top.
