The chaffle is the next big high-fat, high-protein bread alternative to hit the keto diet scene. Unlike the viral fathead dough, the chaffle recipe takes only minutes to prepare, making it the preferred choice for keto bread.
The original keto chaffle is a savory waffle, made from a simple recipe that combines two simple ingredients, egg, and shredded cheese. The chaffle is crisp and light with a subtle eggy, cheesy flavor.
The chaffle recipe works best with a Dash Mini Waffle Maker, for its ease of use and compact design. This recipe will make two four-inch chaffles.
Easy Keto Chaffles
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- extra cheese, for sprinkling (optional)
- Dash Mini Waffle Maker
- small bowl
- fork or whisk
Plug the Dash Mini Waffle Maker in. Allow the waffle iron to warm. When the light goes off, it is ready for use.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and shredded cheese.
Sprinkle a little bit of shredded cheese in the waffle iron (to create crisper edges) and then proceed to spoon half of the batter into the waffle maker, and close the top.
Cook the chaffle for 3 minutes. Do not open the waffle maker to check on the chaffle or you will risk tearing it.
Carefully remove the chaffle to a plate. The chaffle will feel soft but will become crisp as it cools.
Follow the same steps to make the second chaffle. Enjoy your chaffle as is or use to make a sandwich.
Keto Chaffle Variations
The traditional chaffle keto recipe consists of two simple ingredients, egg, and shredded cheese. However, there are many variations of the chaffle if you’d like to live life to your tastes.
- Spruce up your savory chaffle by adding some flavorful spices and seasonings such as Everything But the Bagel seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, or Italian seasoning.
- Add two tablespoons of almond flour to your mix for a fluffier waffle-like consistency.
- Experiment with different types of cheese to maximize the flavor of your chaffle.
