Sweet Keto Chaffles Recipe

What Are Chaffles?

Chaffles are cheese + waffles = chaffles! Fun, right?

We’re essentially making a waffle out of keto-freindly ingredients, like cheese and eggs.

As I mentioned above, the chaffle recipes I saw originally were made from just cheese and eggs, but I found these to be a bit too eggy. The addition of almond flour and psyllium husk powder makes these taste much more like a traditional waffle – so much so that my husband could hardly believe they were keto!

I have a basic chaffle recipe, but I’m also including two savory chaffles and two sweet chaffles – I highly recommend trying all five!

Basic Chaffle Recipe For Sandwiches:

  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 tbsp Blanched almond flour (or 2 tsp coconut flour)
  • 1/2 tsp Psyllium husk powder (optional, but recommended for texture, sprinkle in so it doesn’t clump)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)
Garlic Parmesan Chaffles:
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 1/3 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 clove Garlic (minced; or use 1/2 clove for milder garlic flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)
Cinnamon Sugar (Churro) Chaffles:
  • 1 large Egg
  • 3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Blanched almond flour (or 2 tsp coconut flour)
  • 1/2 tbsp Butter (melted)
  • 2 tbsp Erythritol
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Psyllium husk powder (optional, for texture)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Butter (melted; for topping)
  • 1/4 cup Erythritol (for topping)
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon (for topping)
Pumpkin Chaffles:
  • 1/2 oz Cream cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Erythritol
  • 3 tsp Coconut flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)
Spicy Jalapeno Popper Chaffles:
  • 1 oz Cream cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Bacon bits
  • 1/2 tbsp Jalapenos
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)

Cooking Instructions
  1. Preheat your waffle iron for about 5 minutes, until hot.
  2. If the recipe contains cream cheese, place it into a bowl first. Heat it gently in the microwave (~15-30 seconds) or a double boiler, until it’s soft and easy to stir.
  3. Stir in all other remaining ingredients (except toppings, if any).
  4. Pour enough of the chaffle batter into the waffle maker to cover the surface well. (That’s about 1/2 cup batter for a regular waffle maker and 1/4 cup for a mini waffle maker.)
  5. Cook until browned and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. (See my tip in the post above about other ways to tell they are done without opening the waffle maker!)
  6. Carefully remove the chaffle from the waffle maker and set aside to crisp up more. (Cooling is important for texture!) Repeat with remaining batter, if any.
