Crispy Chaffle Directions

  1. Heat mini waffle maker (should take 30 seconds). Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of each parmesan and mozzarella on the griddle and let it melt and toast for 30 seconds before adding your mixture (as listed in step 2). Use the remaining 1/2 tablespoons for the second chaffle.
  2. In a small bowl, add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup parmesan, 1/2 cup mozzarella, 2 teaspoons of almond flour, and Everything but the Bagel Seasoning (you can omit the seasoning if you are not a fan) and whisk.

  3. Add a quarter of the mixture to the waffle maker.
  4. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes (the longer you cook, the crispier the chaffle will be).
  5. If you want to make a hard taco shell, fold the chaffle over a skewer that's across a bowl. It will keep its shape as it cools. If you want it to be an "open-faced" taco, then skip this step. This mixture makes 4 chaffles.
  6. Top with your favorite taco ingredients like ground beef seasoned with our keto taco seasoning, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and sour cream. YUM!

It doesn’t get any better than keto chaffles four ways!

Move over, cloud bread! The Chaffle has made her grand entrance.

Alright, I’m sure you’ve seen it all over social media for the past year and you’re wondering what is this craziness. You know what I’m talking about: the one and only chaffle!

We keto fans need something to keep us on track, and the chaffle is just that. With just two main ingredients, you can create ENDLESS possibilities.

I’ve put together four easy chaffle recipes for you: a crispy chaffle, a basic chaffle, a dessert chaffle, and a taco chaffle.

Tips for making keto chaffles:

  • Do NOT spray your waffle maker with oil if you want a crispy texture. The cheese produces enough fat that it will not stick to the maker.
  • Be patient. This is a quick process, but to get crunchy or stiff “bread”, you will need to leave it in longer than a normal waffle. The chaffle takes anywhere between 3 to 6 minutes.
  • Want a Crispy Chaffle? If you want that crunch resembling toast or a toasted bun, sprinkle some cheese on the maker first. Once it starts turning golden brown and bubbling, then you can add your chaffle batter.
  • Be careful to not overfill the chaffle maker or it will make a mess! The taco chaffle recipe makes a total of 4 chaffles that are a little thinner than the other chaffles so they’re more like tortillas.

  1. Scott Williams

    Love these recipes Ashley! Thanks! Can I just put Parmesan cheese in my mini waffle maker and make crispy cheese chips?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I would absolutely try it!!! I would do maybe just 2 mins and try it out but no need to spray with olive oil, Scott Williams! Let us know how it works out for you!

  2. Lauren

    I use my regular Belgian waffle maker. No need to buy a new appliance! I’ve made several types but my favorite has been a loaded hash brown! I use frozen riced cauliflower that i steamed according to package directions. I used a 20oz bag and mixed it with 2 T sour cream, 2 eggs, dried chives, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I mixed in some shredded cheddar and used it on the waffle maker as well. Next time I think I’ll add a little onion powder too.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh YUM! Thanks for taking the time to share your recipe with us, Lauren! That sure sounds delicious!

  3. Shari Steinwr

    I just tried these for the first time and I’m hooked! I was wondering if these would work to make ahead and freeze for future use. Can you let me know if that might be possible to do?
    Thank you!
    Shari Steiner

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You can make a large batch and freeze them, but you’ll want to freeze them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Once they are frozen, you can put them in a freezer bag with parchment between them to keep from sticking.

  4. Jennifer

    I haven’t had much luck using mozzarella cheese, for some reason the top and bottom don’t “meld” together. Any suggestions? I’m using whole milk version too. I have great luck with cheddar, but want to try some of these sweeter versions.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jennifer! For that you can add some Parmesan cheese along with the mozzarella to the waffle maker first to get the crispy texture. Just add both to the bottom and leave open the lid for a few minutes to create that melted base first. With using mozzarella in the mix you will have to leave it in for at least 5 minutes OR you can also try a little bit of almond flour with it! Hope this helps!

      • Jennifer

        Thanks Amber! I do usually add some almond flour, but I mix the cheese and everything together, I’ll have to try this method!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re so welcome!

  5. Sherry L Mellott

    I love that your waffle maker has the small lines rather than the traditional waffle pattern! It resembles a bread more than the waffle look! Was that on Amazon too?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! You can grab it here. 😊

  6. Nanette

    Cheapest place to purchase the gadget without all that price gouging is target online, still 9.99.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for mentioning that, Nanette! I have added that link to the post!

  7. Jen

    They have a $2.50 off coupon right now. At least in red.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Nice find, Jen! Thanks for the heads up!

  8. Michelle

    Can u i use coconut flour instead of almond flour but allergies?

  9. Jeannie

    Good hint aboutthe cheese Browning, thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Jeannie! Glad that was helpful!

  10. Carol Mase

    I was wondering why if both the original and the everything waffle have the same ingredients there is 100 calorie difference

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Carol! They have different ingredients. The Basic Chaffle is just eggs and cheddar, while the Crispy Everything Chaffle has eggs, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, seasoning, and almond flour. Hoping that helps!
