30 Sweet & Savory Chaffle Recipes - Best Keto Waffle Ideas - Sortathing (2024)

All aboard the chaffle train!

A chaffle is simply a keto waffle made with egg and cheese. In other words, a cheesy waffle, or a “chaffle”. Jury’s out on how to pronounce it. And just like regular waffles, low-carb chaffle recipes can be sweet or savory.

You could make an entire meal out of chaffles and, indeed, some people have made variations that are way more than a casual snack, as you’ll see below.

The chaffle phenomenon is the latest and possibly greatest keto cheat innovation. It exploded onto the keto and low-carb scene in Summer 2019, but already there are dozens of imaginative versions and variations. One thing they all have in common is the Dash mini waffle maker, but other larger waffle makes will do the job.

There’s clearly an appetite for bread, pizza and waffle alternatives. That’s why fathead dough and inventions like the halloumi wrap are so popular. The chaffle looks sure to be just as popular.

We’ve searched long and hard, gathering the 30 best keto waffle recipes for both a sweet and savory tooth. They’re each perfect for breakfast, brunch or a sugar-free dessert later in the day.

Best Keto Chaffle Waffle Irons in 2021

The Dash Mini Maker is the kitchen appliance that sparked the chaffle revolution this summer. It’s cheap, fast and perfect for single servings. Most of the recipes here rely on the Mini Maker somewhere in the process.

But Dash also make larger waffle makers if you have more chaffle-hungry mouths to feed at home, take a look!
