How to make this keto chaffle recipe
These tasty chaffles come together in just five simple steps. Let’s see how it’s done!
Step 1: Preheat the waffle iron for 5 minutes. Spray with cooking oil once hot.
Step 2: Mix together the eggs, cheese, and almond flour with a fork until well mixed.
Step 3: Pour half the mixture into the waffle maker until the surface is fully covered in a thin layer of batter.
Step 4: Cook in the waffle machine for 4-5 minutes until crispy. When there is very little steam coming out, the waffle should be done.
Step 5: Remove and set aside to cool. Repeat with the remaining batter.
How easy was that? This recipe will make two chaffles, but you can easily double, triple, or even quadruple the ingredients depending on how many you need!
What toppings to serve with your chaffle
When it comes to toppings or ways to enjoy your chaffles, the possibilities are truly endless. Even though we use cheese in this recipe, the final flavor turns out pretty neutral. That means you can enjoy them sweet, savory, or however you like!
One of the most obvious options is to use them exactly like regular waffles. Add your favorite low-carb toppings, like sugar-free maple syrup or fresh fruit, and dig in. I personally love adding some shredded coconut and sugar-free chocolate chips.
You can also use chaffles as a low-carb substitute for toast. Top with bacon and a fried egg for a delicious open-faced breakfast sandwich.
What about a quick lunch? You can layer up with your favorite deli meats, cheese, and condiments, or make yourself a keto chicken salad sandwich!
From breakfast to dessert, chaffles are so versatile. You’ll never stop finding yummy ways to use them.
Chaffles are a great option for simple meal prepping. I love having them in my freezer and ready to use at a moment’s notice!
Once the chaffles have finished cooking and fully cooled, you can freeze them in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. When you’re ready to enjoy, reheat your chaffles in the toaster or a preheated waffle iron to quickly crisp them up before serving.
