I have tons of chaffle recipes and even a guide to making the best chaffles, but I realized that I haven’t posted a basic recipe yet, so this basic savory chaffle is here for you! You can also check out my pinterest for more low carb recipe ideas.

What can I use basic chaffles for?

This basic savory chaffle is good for pretty much anything you’d use bread for. You can have it in soups, use it for sandwich bread, or anything else you can think of. I like mine as a burger bun, and we love ours for some low carb BLT’s

How to make this basic chaffle recipe

Here’s how I make basic chaffles, step by step.

Step 1: Preheat your waffle iron.

Step 2: Mix together your eggs, spices, almond flour and baking powder. You want to be sure you mix them until they’re well incorporated.

Step 3: Thoroughly mix in your cheese of choice. For this chaffle I use mild mozzarella. Make sure that all of your cheese is coated evenly with the mixture.

Step 4: Pour the mixture onto your waffle iron and make sure to spread it evenly.

Step 5: Wait for the chaffle to cook in the waffle maker. It will become golden brown, and depending on your waffle iron it’ll take 5-10 minutes.

Step 6: Let the chaffle sit for 2-3 minutes until it becomes crunchy.

Step 7: Assemble your meal and enjoy!

Notes

  • This recipe makes 1 belgian chaffle, so it’s BIG. Typically this translates to 4 chaffles in the mini Dash waffle maker. 
  • If you shred your own cheese, you can avoid extra carbs that come from fillers like potato starch. I didn’t shred my own cheese, but rather used pre-packaged shredded cheese, which is why you may see a higher carb count here.

    1. Great question – two mini chaffles is one serving. This size recipe should make 4 minis. You can freeze what you don’t end up eating, and microwave, or toast them to reheat.

  1. Hi, Mila – I’m new to Keto so tried your basic chaffle recipe. Easy to make, good texture, crunchy, but it was way too salty tasting for me. Any suggestions for me? What other milder tasting cheese might work? Thanks!

    1. Hi Charlotte, You could try a low-sodium cheese in your batter. Pepperjack cheese works pretty well (and has a nice spice), and although I haven’t tried it, I’ve heard that cream cheese works well to cut the saltiness, but you don’t get the same crunchy texture. Any melty cheese will work, but you need something with a high-fat content to get the crunchiness!

      Let me know if you try anything else, and I’ll post some of my experiments here too. Thanks for commenting, Charlotte!
