What is a Chaffle?
A chaffle is a low carb and keto-friendly waffle that is made from eggs and cheese. You can get the most simple chaffle recipe here. These are grain free waffles!
Chaffles are made on a mini waffle maker. If you make them using a larger waffle maker, they don’t really crisp up the same way because a full-size waffle maker is too deep.
Are Chaffles Keto Friendly?
Yes! Chaffles are keto friendly. They’re made with keto-friendly ingredients and are completely gluten-free. Not all chaffle recipes include almond flour, but almond flour is a great low carb flour.
This whole recipe for chocolate chaffles is 5g net carbs. The recipe (made using a mini waffle maker) makes 3 chaffles.
Eggs and cheese are staples on a ketogenic diet. Many recipes include these, therefore, most low carb kitchens have these ingredients on hand!
Does unsweetened cocoa powder have carbs? Yes, cocoa powder does have carbs but there is also fiber in cocoa powder. 1.5 tbsp of cocoa powder has 5g carbs and 3g fiber, this means it has 2g net carbs (carbs – fiber = net carbs).

Tips for making these Low Carb Protein Waffles
When you’re making these healthy chocolate waffles, preheat your mini waffle maker then whisk your egg.

This protein waffle recipe makes about 3 chaffles. You don’t want to overfill the mini waffle maker or else you’ll waste the chaffle batter.
When cooking the chocolate waffles, allow the steam to fully escape before removing it from the waffle iron. This takes about 3 minutes.
Cool the brownie chocolate chaffle on a wire rack (or eat it, that is fine too).
How to make Chaffles Crispy
If you have tried chaffles and really enjoy a crispy chaffle, there are two things you can do.
After cooking the chaffle on the mini waffle iron, cool the chaffle on a wire rack. This allows the steam to escape both from the top and bottom. You could go a step further by toasting these waffles in a toaster oven.
You don’t want to leave the chaffle on the iron longer thinking that will make it extra crispy. You will just burn it this way. (insert thumbs down emoji)
How to Store Chaffles
Chaffles are best eaten right away but you CAN store chaffles.
Once cooled, you could store them in an air-tight container in the fridge for 2 days. Additionally, you could freeze chaffles for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container. If you’re concerned about freezer taste, you could wrap this container in foil.
How to Reheat Chaffles
The best method for reheating chaffles is by toasting them in a toaster oven or a regular toaster until heated.
If you microwave these chocolate waffles, they’ll be soggy.
