Blueberry Chaffles : Low Carb

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!

Blueberries, not only are they delicious and nutritious but they also have one of the highest antioxidant levels amongst all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings.

Blueberries are low in carbs and therefore do not have a significant impact on blood glucose levels, making them a good choice for diabetics.

Blueberries can also be frozen without reducing any of their antioxidant properties or delicate structure. So pick up those on offer in the supermarket and get them in the freezer ... now that's a good idea!

We bring a variety of articles, studies etc. plus recent news/views and recipe ideas to this blog, we hope something for everyone to read and enjoy. Please note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

I'd love to try this as I'm always looking for a way to cut carbs. can almond flour be used instead of coconut flour?

Hello Erika, and thanks for your comment and question.
This recipe works well and it's a little like the low carb pancake on the link below, even though you use cheese they do not taste of cheese.

Enjoy your chaffles and perhaps a low carb pancake too.

All the best Jan
