Great basic chaffle recipe
So glad you love the chaffles Cindy!
great….added spices of my own but a great basic recipe. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing Lorrie! It’s great to hear you enjoyed the recipe!
This made 3 chaffels. Is the 3 carbs per each of those, or for the whole mixture (1/2 c mozzarella, 1 egg and 1 T almond flour?
The nutrition information is for the whole recipe
Thanks, Loretta! You will have to let us know what you think when you try it!
Can you make them like a pancake
Hi Judy, we find we get the best results when making these in a waffle maker but they should turn out when made like a pancake too! We would love to hear how they turn out for you!
I would like to know if I can make the batter for the chaffles and store in fridge until I am ready to use and before cooking I can add flavors wanted. Has anyone ever done this?
Hi Debbie, storing it in the fridge for a bit should be fine. I haven’t tried adding in any flavors but would love to hear what happens if you do.
This is a great recipe! Second time I made it, I used shredded cheddar instead and it held together much better
Thanks for the tip, Reilly! Glad you enjoyed it.
Found this out by accident, but if you freeze the mozzarella then thaw it, it changes the consistency to almost cream cheese making it mix wonderfully.
Such a happy accident, Heather! Thanks for sharing.
Is there a substitute for almond flour? We have allergies to nuts.
I have only tried the recipe as written Sabrina. But I think you could try another low-carb flour like coconut flour. If you try it, I would love to hear how it turns out!
Is this recipe for a full sized waffle iron or a mini?
I like to use a mini waffle iron for this recipe. Enjoy Stephanie!
Very good! ///////the almond flour helped to keep it from tasting real eggy or cheesy. More like a real waffle flavor to me
I didn’t have almond flour so I used what I had, coconut flour, but I used a little less than a tablespoon, remembering somewhere that the ratio was a bit different(I was hangry and didn’t want to take time to look it up) I also added a tablespoon of vanilla, and WOW! These have moved my little waffle iron to the top drawer from the bottom!! I will be making these regularly!! As I savored every bite the thoughts of what kind of sandwiches I could make with my new found delicious “bread”. The possibilities are endless!
Thanks for this recipe! Share with me by my bestie, BNW!!
Excellent ratios here! I added everything bagel seasoning to mine and it turned out yummy!
Made these as my virgin chaffle experience and they were perfect. Thank you for sharing an easy to follow recipe.
