What are Chaffles?

Chaffles are simply cheese waffles made on a mini waffle maker. They’re about the size of a frozen waffle, the kind you might give your children.  

Being small, they hold together well and are crispy. This means they are excellent for making a keto sandwich for any meal of the day. There are literally endless uses for chaffles!

Tips for making Low Carb Chaffles

When making this keto chaffles recipe, heat the mini waffle maker.

Beat the egg then add the cheese and a pinch of salt.

Pour half of the mixture into the waffle iron.

Close the mini waffle maker and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Let the chaffles cool on a wire rack. This allows them to become firm and crisp.

Option for extra crispy chaffles: Place 1 Tbsp of cheese directly on the waffle iron then add half of the egg/cheese mixture then add 1 more Tbsp of shredded cheese on top.

Storing Chaffles

Once you’ve made your chaffles, if you don’t plan to eat them right away you could refrigerate them in an air-tight container for up to 2 days. They won’t be as crispy though. Simply reheat when you’re ready to eat them.

Can Chaffles be frozen?

Yes, chaffles can be frozen. Allow them to fully cool before freezing them. Store them in an air-tight bag or container. To thaw, simply microwave until heated through, or toast in a toaster oven.
