The Basic Keto Chaffle


  • 1/4 cup full-fat shredded cheese, divided
  • 1 egg


Pre-heat your waffle maker on the highest temperature setting.

While waiting, scramble egg in a bowl until evenly combined.

Once the waffle maker is ready, sprinkle half of the shredded cheese evenly over the surface.

Next, pour the scrambled egg over the layer of cheese.

Then, evenly sprinkle the remaining cheese over the scrambled egg and close the waffle maker.

Cook for 3-5 minutes or until steam the waffle maker has stopped steaming.

Chaffle Tips and Tricks

When it comes to the shredded cheese, any flavor will work. Try it with cheddar, mozzarella, Colby-Jack, or any other cheese blend! Each cheese will change the flavor of your chaffle slightly so experiment until you find your favorite.

It's important to set your waffle maker's temperature to high because that's the key to coveted crispy chaffle! Don't worry about the cheese burning - it will just get crispier and more delicious.

What Waffle Maker Should I Use to Make Chaffles?

When it comes to making chaffles, it's important to have the right equipment. Though any waffle maker will technically work, most of these recipes use a mini waffle maker like the Dash Mini Waffle Maker.

These smaller waffles are the perfect size for breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, and personal size pizzas and cakes. Plus, everything is cuter in miniature!
