Searching for the right keto bread that feels and tastes like the bread we all know and love can be quite the adventure. It often feels like a big project, and honestly, most folks find it a bit too much to take on.

I’ve had my share of experiments in the kitchen, from baking almond flour bread to crafting my own hamburger buns, low carb hot dog buns, and even making a delicious 90 seconds bread. But now, I’ve discovered something new – chaffles. They’re a game changer. Super easy to whip up, they hardly have any carbs, and the best part? Almost no cleanup afterwards.

What are Chaffles?

Chaffles are like magic for anyone who’s trying to eat fewer carbs or following a keto diet. Imagine making waffles, but instead of the usual batter, you use just cheese and eggs. That’s a chaffle for you! The name itself is a fun mix of “cheese” and “waffle.”

What’s great about chaffles is how simple they are to make and how they keep your carb count low. Plus, you can jazz them up with different ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, or various spices to make them your own. Whether you need a quick bread substitute or just a yummy, low-carb snack, chaffles are here to save the day. They’re super satisfying and couldn’t be easier to make.

How to Make Keto Chaffles

Making chaffles is super easy and honestly, a bit of a kitchen miracle for anyone on a keto diet or just looking to cut down on carbs. Whoever thought of using just cheese and eggs to make a waffle deserves a big thank you. Here’s the simple way to get those crispy, golden delights known as chaffles:

First, you’ll need a mini waffle maker.

Now, I’ve got my own twist on making chaffles that might help if you’ve run into any issues with the basic method.

Here’s what I do:

  1. Heat up your waffle maker first. It’s gotta be hot to get that nice crispy texture.
  2. While that’s warming up, grab a small bowl and crack one egg into it. Then, add your shredded cheese. This is your chaffle batter.

By mixing the cheese and egg before putting it in the waffle maker, I find it solves some common problems like uneven cooking or parts of the chaffle being too eggy or too cheesy. Plus, it’s just as quick and simple!

PS: Do not pour all the batter onto the waffle maker; this recipe makes two mini cheese waffles.

There’s no need to grease the pans as the fat released from cheese while cooking is just enough to prevent sticking.

The waffles are perfectly crispy after 4 minutes, and that’s when you should carefully remove them from the mini waffle maker.

How to Serve Chaffles?

When it comes to serving chaffles only the sky, it’s the limit. Anything that can be eaten between two slices of bread goes perfectly with chaffles. Here’s how I love to enjoy mine:

  • Bread replacements for sandwiches
  • Buns for burgers
  • Instead of Biscuits with Keto Gravy
  • Topped with Crack Chicken
  • As a substitute for toast served for breakfast along with sausage, bacon, or eggs.

Tools to Make Keto Chaffles

I own a few waffle makers that come in different shapes. While those work great for chaffles too, I got the best results after I got my Dash Mini Waffle Maker.

In fact, I ordered two of them to make sure it comes in handy when meal prepping. It makes the perfect sized 4-inch waffles and heats up fast. It makes my life easier, and it seems to be sold out ever since it became an overnight sensation, and everyone wants one or more! There are tons of benefits of having a mini waffle maker:

  1. It’s compact and perfect for a small kitchen (like mine).
  2. It has a non-stick surface. That’s what you want from your waffle maker, especially when using just cheese and eggs to make one.
  3. Heats up super fast
  4. Extremely easy to clean

You can purchase Dash Mini Waffle Mare from Amazon or search them in stores such as Walmart, Sam’s Club, or Bed Bath & Beyond.

    Chaffles are all over pinterest, today was a good day to try them. Luckily, no one was walking by when I opened the lid or their ears would have been burning. Mucho screaming and cursing. Years ago I worked at williams sonoma for christmas, really loved it there and a hefty discount. So I purchased two different waffle irons. A rep came and gave us a talk stressing to never oil the iron. It was made to work well and oiling would ruin it. And it has been good. But the chaffle stuck mightily. I scraped out the shreds and ate them, yum. Cleaning the iron all day. 🙁 🙁 🙁 A “chaffle iron” is on my list for target so I can oil it. I am guessing people butter or oil the iron for chaffles???? Looking forward to trying all of your options.

    1. What a day you had! I use melted butter or non-sticking spray to grease my mini waffle maker. I tried making chaffles without greasing and they didn’t stick. It’s a fantastic kitchen tool. I have 2 of them and make at least 4 chaffles every day.

  2. Help! I do not have FB twitter yum etc. But I am on my computer and would like to print some of the chaffle recipes and cant seem to do it. Where do I go to find the recipes and print them? Melissa

    1. Oh, I see. Do you want to print some of the chaffle recipes inside the post? At the bottom of the page, you have the recipe card and there’s a print button for the classic chaffles. I’ll make sure to include the other chaffles there so you can print them.

  3. I found it much easier to just triple the amount of cheese while keeping the egg to just one–crispy, really good, very versatile, and I use various cheeses (shredded) to change up the taste a bit. I mix the egg and cheese together, then cook that on the waffle maker, and it’s far easier than doing the cheese and egg separately, at least for me.
    The hot chaffle tastes great with butter brushed onto it, too, letting it melt into the chaffle—-FABULOUS!
