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.
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!
2 cups (225g) cheddar cheese, shredded/grated
2 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped (save some for garnish)
½ cup (125ml) cream cheese, softened
½ tsp garlic cloves, minced
