Chaffles : Low Carb : Keto : Good for Diabetics




The low-carb keto waffle that has taken the world by storm! This recipe gets rave reviews and is the perfect base to get creative. Want savoury chaffles? Add ham and chives. Sweet chaffles? Add vanilla and cinnamon. The possibilities are endless. Why not whip up some delicious chaffles for your next Sunday brunch!

But you may be saying ...
I've not heard of them!
I've not tried one!

Should I try them? 
Well, they certainly fit with my LCHF menu plans, and let me share some more information about them. 

If you haven’t heard of the term “chaffle” yet
It's the latest craze that has taken the diabetes community by storm! 

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 to 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 cooking invention can also help keep your blood sugars in check straight from morning till night! That's good news! 

But you don't have to be diabetic to enjoy them, why not give them a try! 

Ingredients
Serves Four
2g net carb per serving
1 oz. / 30g butter
4 eggs
8 oz. / 225g mozzarella cheese

4 tbsp. / 30g almond flour
Tips
These chaffles are best eaten straight away but can be frozen and reheated.
Good low-carb options include sugar-free whipped cream, nut butters, or fresh berries. To make the berries juicy like a sauce, heat them for a minute in the microwave, or warm them in a saucepan.

Another blogger introduced me to chaffles a while back.
I am not a fan of waffles, but these could be a positive switch.

I'm constantly teasing my very good friend who is on the Keto diet about "Chaffles"....she bought a waffle/chaffle iron not long ago...(long story attached, hence my teasing).

Sue said...

This is the first time I've heard of these, but I may now have to buy a waffle maker. I meant to reply to this earlier but your blog always takes me off on a tangent - today it's been alternative flours and sweeteners lol. Have a very happy week, Sue xx
