  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • avocado oil spray


  • Heat your waffle iron.
  • In a small bowl, combine the egg, almond flour and mozzarella cheese. Whisk to combine.
    1 egg, 1 tablespoon almond flour, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Spray the waffle iron with avocado oil spray. Add the batter to your waffle iron. Cook for 3-6 minutes, until the waffles are crispy.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. They are the crispiest when they are allowed to fully cool.
  • I love mine topped with mashed avocado and microgreens. But these are also surprisingly delicious topped with keto syrup and berries!
  • See the Recipe Notes below for more tips, FAQ's and ingredient substitution.



Waffle Iron: I love this waffle iron because I can make up to 4 chaffles at once, and the chaffles/waffles are the perfect size to fit in a toaster oven to reheat. This recipe is for just 2 chaffles. Double if you want to make 4.
Cheese: I prefer shredded mozzarella because it has the most neutral flavor, but you could also use shredded cheddar, shredded mexican blend, etc.
Freezing/Reheating: These chaffles freeze so well, and last in the fridge for 5 days. When you're ready to reheat just pop in the toaster!
Almond Flour: You could substitute almond meal for almond flour. I would NOT recommend substituting coconut flour.
Tree Nut Free: I haven't tried it, but you should be able to use 2 teaspoons coconut flour in place of the 2 tablespoons of almond flour. Coconut flour takes a bit to absorb, so I'd let the batter sit for 5 minutes so it can thicken properly.
Dairy Free: Sadly, I'm not sure this would work with a dairy free shredded cheese, such as Daiya. I don't think these can be made dairy free. If you think of a way to make them dairy free please share in the comments!
