Base Ingredients:

  • 1 Egg or 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 Cup Mozzarella shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon Almond Flour

Chocolate Chip Chaffle:

Ham + Cheese Chaffle:

  • Swap mozzarella for cheddar
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Deli-Style Ham chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Green Onion sliced

Jalapeno Popper Chaffle:

  • Swap mozzarella for cheddar
  • 2 Tablespoons Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 Tablespoon Jalapeno minced + deseeded
  • 2 Tablespoons Bacon cooked + crumbled

Brownie Chaffles:

Pizza Chaffles:

  • 1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 Cup Pepperoni chopped
  • Keto Pizza Sauce for dipping


  • Heat your waffle iron*.
  • Whisk 1 egg and 1 tablespoon almond flour together in a medium bowl.
  • If making a variation, stir in your mix-ins. NOTE: if the variation you're making includes cream cheese, be sure to soften it before adding it in.
  • Stir in 1/2 mozzarella cheese.
  • Once the waffle iron is hot, cook for 2-3 minutes. You'll know the waffle is done once less steam comes out of the iron, OR (if you're using the mini waffle maker) the blue light turns off.
  • Top with your favorite ingredients, and enjoy!


  • Almond Flour. Using fine-grained almond flour will yield the most "flour-like" results. My favorite brands are Bob's Red Mill, Trader Joe's, or Costco brands. 
  • Chocolate. I love Lily's chocolate chips for this (they make dark, semi-sweet, and milk) but you can always make your own low carb chocolate by following my recipe!  
  • Cocoa Powder. I much prefer dutch process cocoa powder in sweets, as it’s significantly less bitter than regular!
  • Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste. 
  • *The best waffle iron for these is the Mini Waffle Maker.
