Need a waffle maker? Here are 5 great ones for all kinds of cooking needs!
I decided to come out with a chaffle recipe each week in addition to regular recipe posts! This everything bagel chaffle is a winner.
You guys liked my original chaffle so much, and I feel like the flavor combinations are pretty endless, so why not?!
This everything bagel chaffle is going to be an instant classic!
I’ve given up bread for the most part with a few exceptions. I try taking the buns off my burgers, or low carb bread, but bagels are one thing that just isn’t the same in a low carb version.
The soft chew from the bread, toasting it and slathering it in cream cheese is unlike anything else, really.
But even if you can’t have the bread, you can still have the flavors.
So I took all of the best parts about an everything bagel and put it into a chaffle.
One thing that I like about this recipe is that you can eat this just like a bagel.
Smear some cream cheese and sprinkle extra everything bagel seasoning (the Trader Joe’s kind obviously) on top. Toast it in the oven a little bit for some extra crunch.
How do I perfect this chaffle?
I always get a lot of questions about my chaffle recipes, so I wanted to make sure you get all of your questions answered. I usually include notes in the recipe card as well.
Be sure to read the recipe first before you attempt it! It will save you a lot of time and hassle to know the steps up front!
What kind of cheese do I use for this everything bagel chaffle?
You can use whatever cheese you would like as the base. I used mozzarella in mine so the everything bagel seasoning would stand out.
You could also use a little bit of cream cheese in this recipe if you’d like. Just make sure to blend it well so you don’t have chunks of cream cheese.
How do I cook these chaffles?
You’ll need a waffle maker to make these. There are lots of choices, I personally like the full-size waffle maker.
To give your chaffle an even flavor you need to mix your egg with your spices and almond flour first, and then coat the cheese. It sounds like me being nit-picky, but it actually makes all of the difference with your chaffle.
Can I substitute coconut flour for almond flour?
Yes. It’s such a small amount that the sub works fine. You can sub 1:1, just note that your chaffle may have a drier consistency with coconut flour.
Can you freeze everything bagel chaffles?
Yep! Make sure they’re in an airtight container and wrapped properly. in parchment or wax paper. They can stay frozen for up to two weeks.

Missing that fave everything bagel? Here’s a chaffle recipe that gives you that great everything bagel taste!
There are lots of questions about the best way to make a chaffle. Here’s some guidance in my chaffle guide!
1 tablespoon of almond flour
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup mozzarella cheese (full fat, skim or nonfat will work depending on your preferences. Your nutrition information may vary based on your cheese. This recipe uses low-moisture, part skim mozarella).
2 teaspoons of everything bagel seasoning
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- In a bowl, mix together, egg, almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder baking powder and everything bagel seasoning.
- Add in the mozzarella cheese and coat it evenly with the mixture.
- Spray your waffle maker with oil (if needed) and let it heat up to its highest setting.
- Cook the waffle, checking on it every 5 minutes until it gets crunchy and golden.
- Your nutrition information could vary based on the cheese you use. Calculate your macros based on your own ingredients.
- Make sure you put in 1/4 of your batter for a mini waffle maker, and half in each side if you have a split waffle maker. The waffle maker can overflow, making it a messy process. I suggest putting down a silpat mat for an easy clean up.
- This will make 4 mini chaffles, or two large chaffles. You can also use this in a belguim waffle maker as one extra large chaffle.
- Smear it with some cream cheese and sprinkle with a little extra everything bagel seasoning for that bagel taste.
- Yes, you can substitute coconut flour for almond flour. You may get a slightly different texture and a drier waffle.

This was soo easy to do AND it is very yum! I had never used batter that was mostly made of cheese, but I was pleasantly surprised when it crisped up quickly and easily.
Thank you for this recipe! I’ve been following a Keto plan for close to a year, and the ONLY thing that I ever stray off of is due to missing bagels.
THIS recipe is SPOT-ON and I will just be stocking up on mozzarella cheese instead of carbs.
I also just received 3 additional mini dash makers from THE shopping channel, and that has already made the whole chaffle journey SO much more enjoyable!
I’m off to search your site for something that could imitate sour cream & onion chips – my 2nd weakness. lol.
Keep doing what you are doing!! Great job!
The net carbs seem excessive. Are your numbers correct?
Yes, for the specific packaged ingredients I used, the nutrition info came out to what’s in the recipe card. This varies depending on what you use.
Pre-shredded cheese will always have additional carbs. Shredding your own cheese will lower the carb out since there’s no starch to help avoid clumping.
These Are FABULOUS! Thank you so much for helping me stick to this Keto way of eating! Smearing these with cream cheese is a wonderful substitute for bagels.
This is the first chaffle recipe I’ve tried and it was a winner!!! Can’t wait to try your other versions. Can’t thank you enough!!!
So, so good! As a recently diagnosed diabetic, I’m so excited to find delicious recipes like this. Thank you for helping me stick to my new lifestyle!
I’m so glad you liked it, Amy! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
Love this as much as your sweet version! Made this last night and dipped in homemade tomato soup. Tonight I used your above basic recipe but added garlic, fresh basil and chipotle powder to make a BLT that was out of this world! You, Dear madam are a Rock star!
Woo! I’m so happy to hear that, Terry! Tomato soup sounds like an excellent pairing for these chaffles!
I’m so excited to go try these out today!
I hope you enjoy them! come back and leave a review if you like them!
