Our excellent recipes continue. Keto chaffles are the latest craze with only 3 net carbs for the whole recipe! Have fun coming up with different creations or combos with this recipe..
So there are quite a couple of different variations of chaffle recipes floating around and the main recipe calls for an egg and cheddar. I tried this and thought it was too eggy for me. That is why I add a little almond flour to my recipe. If you don’t want almond flour, leave it out!
No baking soda is needed to make a chaffle. I deleted it from the original recipe because some readers were complaining it left a bitter taste.
After seeing all the latest posts on the keto recipe subreddit, I busted out my waffle iron and gave it a try. My waffle iron hadn’t been used in a long time and it was about time this kitchen appliance has had some love.
WHAT IS CHAFFLE?
The basic recipe for a chaffle contains cheddar cheese, almond flour, and an egg. You mix the ingredients together in a bowl and pour it on top of your waffle maker. Waffle makers are probably on the rise right now after this chaffle recipe exploded the other day ago. I was kind of skeptical at first thinking there was no way this would turn out after mixing it all together and pouring the batter on top of the waffle. I was expecting one big gigantic mess. Make sure to spray the waffle maker really well. The waffle turned out great and it was crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.
WHAT DO I NEED TO MAKE A CHAFFLE?
1 large egg
1/2 c. Cheddar – I used Happy Farms brand from Aldi
2 tablespoons of almond flour
HOW TO MAKE A CHAFFLE?
To make a chaffle you will need a good waffle iron. I really like this one. It’s the VillaWare Belgian Waffle Maker. I’m a huge fan of Alton Brown and I have this same waffle iron he uses on his show. I looked to see if this particular brand was sold on Amazon and it is not, unfortunately. If you are looking to purchase a waffle maker, I have some listed below with links to Amazon. I’ve been using it for a long time now and I love it.
Preheat your waffle maker if it requires preheating.
Whisk together the egg, cheddar, and almond flour, in a bowl until well combined.
Spray the waffle maker with cooking spray and pour the chaffle batter on top of the waffle maker. Close and let the waffle for 3 to 4 minutes. My waffle maker has it’s own automatic timer setting.
Take the waffle out of the waffle iron and enjoy.
