What Are Chaffles?
Chaffles are waffles made from a combination of cheese and eggs (here also comes the name chaffles). They are great for breakfast or as a sweet and savory snack. The original chaffle recipe is made using just eggs and cheese, but I found it tastes slightly eggy.
I added a little coconut flour, and they tasted similar to traditional waffles – no one could tell they were keto-friendly.

Ingredients For Keto Chaffles
You will need only 3 ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen to create these delicious keto chaffles. Here is a note o the ingredients:
- Eggs – use large room-temperature eggs to avoid that eggy taste and smell.
- Cheese – make sure you use good quality mozzarella cheese for a great flavor. Cheddar is also a great option, and some variations include cream cheese for a better texture.
- Almond Flour is one of my favorite low-carb flour that I like to use for most recipes. Make sure that you are using superfine almond flour for a great texture.
How To Make These Keto Chaffles
Breakfast was never easier to prepare. These keto chaffles are so easy to make that I choose to prepare them anytime I don’t have much time for cooking. Here is everything you have to do:

- Next, grease a waffle iron, and once it is hot, add the chaffle batter and cook for 5 minutes.
- Repeat the process until the chaffles are ready, and enjoy.
Tips For Making The Best Keto Chaffles
- Spray your waffle iron generously to prevent the chaffle from sticking to it.
- Use part-skim low-moisture shredded mozzarella to prevent the chaffles from becoming soggy or limp.
- Use finely grated cheese for evenly cooking.
- Ensure you don’t overfill the waffle iron because you will make a huge mess.
