Chaffle, My Faux Waffle

Whether your eating lifestyle consists of low fat or low carb items, it doesn’t matter here because this recipe is great for both!

How does it measure up? Keto- around 2-3 net carbs. Weight Watchers- 2 points.

You want a sandwich or cheeseburger, but bread is forbidden or limited? Here’s a solution. The chaffle. Savory or sweet. You can adjust the recipe to fit your taste buds. You’ll start with the basic recipe and then make it your own.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 T. Almond Flour Or Carbquick (my fav)
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 C. Shredded Cheese (fat free or full fat, depending on your diet) – I prefer mozzarella cheese
  • Dash of Salt
  • 1 T. Xylitol– only use if making a “sweet” version of the chaffle- as in to eat as a standard waffle

Heat waffle iron and spray with a non stick spray. Mix the above ingredients and pour onto hot grid. Cook until browned. Remove from waffle iron and let cool. They will firm up upon cooking.

Use as a “bun” or “bread” or simply eat as a waffle. Mrs. Buttersworth sugar free syrup is my favorite.

Think of all of the possibilities. Add cinnamon and a sugar substitute like xylitol for a sweet version. Add a dash of vanilla flavoring. You could top your masterpiece with a cream cheese “icing”.

Or make your version of a McGriddle with a sausage patty, adding a little sugar free syrup.

Craving a BBQ sandwich? Whip up a chaffle and add your meat of choice with a little G Hughes Sugar Free BBQ sauce.
