What’s A Chaffle?
Chaffle stands for cheese waffle. It’s a crispy low-carb keto waffle recipe made from egg and grated cheese.
There are many variations of flavors for chaffles to make chocolate chaffles or savory versions like pizza chaffle as a delicious quick keto breakfast or snack.
How To Make 2-Ingredient Chaffles
There’s nothing easier than these chaffles.
All you need to make them are:
- Large Egg – yes, eggs are perfectly keto-friendly.
- Shredded Cheese – I like to play with the flavor of the hard grated cheese, sometimes I use mozzarella for a plain flavor but freshly grated parmesan, Edam, or cheddar are amazing flavorsome swaps.
Making The Batter
The chaffle batter is pretty similar to an omelette recipe.
First, in a medium bowl, whisk egg then stir in the shredded cheese you like and that’s it!

Your batter is ready to be cooked in your mini waffle iron!
Cooking The 2-Ingredient Chaffle
I have a preference for the Mini Dash Waffle Iron. This mini waffle maker makes small-size waffles, perfect for portion control and crispiness.
First, spray the mini iron plate with cooking spray. Start and preheat the iron.
Then, add about 2 tablespoons of batter to the iron while leaving some free space on the border because the batter expands when you close the iron.
This prevents the batter from overflowing.
Cook for 2 or 3 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
Making Crispy 2-Ingredient Chaffles
When you take out this keto waffle from the iron, it can be slightly soft and that’s normal.
Chaffles get all their crispy texture when cooling down on a wire rack. As they steam out, the cheese cools down and hardens, making the crispiest waffles.
Spices And Flavors
Of course, you can have fun with this chaffle recipe and add spices and flavors to create a range of delicious chaffles for breakfast.
Most dry herbs and spices are keto-approved and won’t add carbs to the recipe.
You can try adding:
- Dried oregano
- Italian herbs
- Garlic powder
Or add some cured meat or low-carb keto-friendly vegetables like:
- Pizza chaffle – add a dash of garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon of dried Italian herbs, chorizo pieces, or bacon.
- Taco chaffle – add 1/2 teaspoon of taco seasoning and one tablespoon of ground cooked beef.
- Jalapeno peppers – add a dash of garlic powder and diced jalapeno to the batter, and a tablespoon of cream cheese.
Chaffles are great for any time of the day on a keto diet.
For breakfast, they are the best keto hashbrown swap, they are crispy and don’t contain many carbs.
You can top up the chaffle with fried eggs, avocado, sour cream, and fresh herbs like rosemary, parsley, or green onions.
For lunch, you can use chaffle to make a chaffle taco or chaffle sandwich. Simply fill your chaffle with your favorite sandwich fillings or taco filling and enjoy!
You can store your 2-ingredient chaffle in the fridge for 2 days or freeze for later and thaw the day before in the fridge.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Use This Recipe To Make Sweet Chaffles?
Absolutely, but make sure you are using grated mozzarella to avoid a cheese flavor in your sweet keto chaffle.
Then, add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1-2 tablespoons of keto sugar-free sweetener like erythritol.
For a fluffier sweet chaffle, beat egg and cheese then add 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 2 tablespoons of erythritol, and add 2 tablespoons of almond flour.
Can I Cook 2-Ingredient Chaffles In A Regular Waffle Maker?
Yes, you can but you will have to cook the whole recipe at once and make one single waffle.
In fact, regular waffle makers have bigger iron plates, and halving the recipe in it will make the waffles too dry.
Can I Double Or Triple The Recipe?
Yes, you can meal prep chaffle and even pre-cook them and store them in the fridge for later.
Chaffles are great rewarmed in a bread toaster, air fryer, or sandwich press.
These easy 2-Ingredient Chaffles are an easy keto breakfast or snack with only 0.8 grams of net carbs each.
