The best basic chaffle recipe

  • Author: Mila Clarke Buckley

The best basic chaffle recipe. I love using mine for sandwhiches and anything else I need bread for. 




  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Mix together your eggs, spices, almond flour and baking powder. You want to be sure you mix them until they’re well incorporated.
  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.
  4. Pour the mixture onto your waffle iron and make sure to spread it evenly.
  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.
  6. Let the chaffle sit for 2-3 minutes until it becomes crunchy.

  7. Assemble your meal and enjoy!


  • 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.
