Low-Carb Chaffles {Keto Cheese Waffles}

It seems almost too good to be true, but chaffles are a real thing.

You know, cheese plus waffles. Chaffles. Get it?

Crazy as they sound, they're incredibly simple to make. Eggs and cheese are the main ingredients, and they hold together surprisingly well on a waffle iron.

You probably won't want to put maple syrup on them, but they are as good as they sound. The fat and protein in both ingredients combine together to create a thick, fluffy, and savory waffle that will keep you full for hours.

Use them as a treat, or have them for breakfast a couple times a week—after all, there's nothing in the recipe you can't eat on a low-carb diet.


This Recipe Is:

  • Low-carb
  • Simple to make
  • Protein-packed
  • Filling and satisfying!


Ingredients Used In This Recipe:

  • Eggs
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese


Top 3 Health Benefits of These Low-Carb Chaffles:

Here are three reasons to give these low-carb chaffles a try.

  1. Eggs are a superfood: The term 'superfood' is reserved for only the most nutritionally-dense edible arrangements. Eggs are right at the top of this list, and for several reasons. They're a great source of vitamin A, B12, iron and choline [*]. One egg also contains more than 6 grams of protein, making these the most protein-packed waffles you're ever going to eat [*]. And if you're trying to stay low-carb on a budget, they're the most affordable protein source you're going to find.
  2. Cheese is full of healthy fat and protein: Cheese has the ideal macronutrient structure if you're on a low-carb diet. It's full of muscle-building proteins and satiating fats, and has virtually no carbs. Cheese is made from whey protein, one of the best types of protein you can eat after a workout to help repair muscle tissue [*]. (As if you needed another reason to eat cheese!)
  3. They're a clean "treat" that doesn't require you to "cheat": Chaffles are an awesome way to feel like you're having a treat without deviating from your diet at all. Sure, they may be savory where normal waffles are sweet, and they may not pair well with maple syrup. But this is still important because one of the factors that determines diet success is how many food options you have available to you. Put another way, you're simply more likely to stick to a diet where you can eat foods you like eating [*].
