WHAT ARE KETO CHAFFLES?
Chaffles are cheese + waffles = chaffles! Fun, right?
We’re essentially making a waffle out of keto-freindly ingredients, like cheese and eggs.
As I mentioned above, the keto chaffle recipes I saw originally were made from just cheese and eggs, but I found these to be a bit too eggy. The addition of almond flour and psyllium husk powder makes these taste much more like a traditional waffle – so much so that my husband could hardly believe they were keto!
I have a basic chaffle recipe, but I’m also including two savory chaffles and two sweet chaffles – I highly recommend trying all five!
So, the first thing you’ll want to do is add 1 large egg, and 1/2 a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese to a small bowl.
Next, you’ll want to get out your whisk, and whisk the cheese and the egg together until incorporated with one another. Once they are, you’ll want to add half of the batter to the mini-waffle maker, and cook the chaffle until the light lets you know it’s done.
When the chaffle’s done cooking use a fork to help lift it from the bottom of the waffle maker. This will ensure you don’t burn your fingers when getting it out of the maker.
And now you’ll want to repeat that same process with the remaining batter.
By the way, when you get the chaffle out of the waffle maker you’ll want to let it cool down before eating it.
If you try and eat the chaffle immediately after you make it, the cheese won’t have time to set, and the consistency will be off. When you cut into it, or bite into it, the consistency will be cheesy and stringy.
However, if you let it cool down and set, it will have more of a “bread-y” quality about it. At least, as good as you’d expect from a recipe like this.
Like I mentioned before, this classic 2 ingredient chaffle recipe is fine, but I have a MUCH BETTER recipe for savory chaffles. My recipe is MUCH CLOSER in texture/consistency to that of a bun/slice of bread.
