What are Chaffles? Healthy and Delicious Waffles!
Most of you know I had done a previous post on Waffles being healthy. Unfortunately, due to an error on my part, I trashed that post and can never get it back.
So. I’m doing a new post on Chaffles, what they are and why they are taking the keto world by storm.
Whether you follow a keto, Paleo, or any other kind of diet, these things are delicious and nutritious, as well as versatile and easy to make.
As soon as I found the recipe, I knew I had to make them.
Whipping out my Belgian waffle maker, however, soon made me realize I had the wrong “tool” for creating the perfect Chaffle, which is a cheese and egg creation perfectly legal on all low carb diets.
The very next chance I got, I rushed out to get a Dash mini-waffle maker-that is the right appliance for perfect Chaffles every time.
See, the Chaffle is used as a bread substitute in most recipes. Each Chaffle is like a slice of bread or a bun for sandwiches, burgers, heck even tacos!
That makes them very versatile and you are going to love making and eating them as much as I do!
Important to know: the recipe makes two Chaffles, so put exactly half the recipe in your pre-heated, greased Dash mini-waffle maker.
The basic recipe for a Chaffle is one large egg and a half cup of shredded cheese. Some add a 1/4 t of baking powder to make them fluffier.
That first bite of a bread-like sandwich was pure delight. I was hooked and wanted to try all the variations one could make with this thing.
Since then, I have made churro Chaffles, chocolate Chaffles with a creamy peanut butter spread in the middle, Wonder Bread Chaffles, and they were all delicious!
You can even make dessert Chaffles like the Oreo Chaffle with a sweet creamy spread in the middle.
They are great for ham and cheese sandwiches, burgers, pulled pork…whatever you can imagine!
Play around with all the recipes and whatever you do, go get a Dash! They can be found everywhere from Target to Amazon. $9.99 is all you’ll pay!
They even make one now that can cook 4 Chaffles at the same time! Make a bunch and freeze them for grab and go meals.

Please do yourself a favor, go get your Dash, make some Chaffles and report back to me! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, new recipe ideas, whatever!
