This delicious, 3 ingredient keto chaffle is the perfect keto low-carb make-ahead breakfast! Only 1 net carb per chaffle!
Servings: 2 chaffles
- 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!
