Chaffle ...have you tried one yet, they are keto / low carb !

The other week I spotted a post on Dr Steve Parker's 'Diabetic Mediterranean Blog' saying that he had Just Learned About Chaffles.

Have you heard of them?
Have you tried one?
Will you be trying one?

Well, I haven't … yet … but they do sound rather good and would certainly fit with my LCHF menu plans.

"If you haven’t heard of the term “chaffle” yet, are you really living?
The latest craze has taken the diabetes online community (DOC) by storm. One moment I was inquiring about what exactly a chaffle was, and the next, I found myself a golden ticket to an underground world with over 100,000 keto-crazed chaffle fanatics! 

What is a chaffle you ask?
A chaffle is basically a cheese and egg alternative to bread, cooked in a mini (or regular, just adjust recipes accordingly) waffle maker that can be used for anything from breakfast foods straight through your after-dinner treat. It basically acts as a base to any creative concoction you can conjure up.

Why are people with diabetes so excited about chaffles?
Well for one, those of us who love to experiment with new low-carb options now have this new blank canvas to create from. But more importantly, this latest invention can also help keep your blood sugars in check straight from morning till night!"

I bought a waffle maker last week just for chaffles!!! I've also made low carb waffles which are great too.

Iris Flavia said...

And just yesterday I passed a waffle maker and thought about buying it - I did not - maybe now I will!!! Well, I really guess I will! But our microwave from the 80´s has no grill-function, do you think it will work just like that, too?

I love this and have ordered a mini waffle iron. I told my daughter about Chaffles and she made a simple recipe with her waffle iron and raved about how great it was, how the texture was so like bread. I can't wait to try!

Sami said...

LOL, now that I've given the waffle maker away comes a low carb use for it :)
I'll visit the other blogs to see the recipes. Thanks Jan

Carol Blackburn said...

Chaffles seem to be all the rage. Unfortunately I sold my waffle maker just before going low carb. Didn't think I'd need it any more. Maybe if I find a good deal, I'll pick up a new one someday.
