Chaffle, My Faux Waffle

September 6, 2019 1 Comment

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.
