From the Publisher
Chaffles—cheese waffles—are the new trend in the low-carb and keto community, and they have taken over on social media.
That’s for good reason: Chaffles are super fuss-free and versatile, and you only need a few common ingredients to make them. They can be used to make bread, sandwiches, or even a slice of cake!
How to Make Chaffles
The basic chaffle is made with just two ingredients: cheese and eggs. Although I love the simplicity, the texture is soft, cheesy, and eggy, which is not necessarily what you desire. I’ve tried and tested every possible way there is to make these wonderful keto waffles to bring you 75 creative recipes with the best textures and flavors. Apart from the chaffle recipes, I will show you how to swap individual ingredients to make them dairy-free, nut-free, and even egg-free.
How to Use This Book
Nutrition values for each recipe in this book are per serving unless stated otherwise. The nutrition data are derived from the USDA National Nutrient Database (ndb.nal.usda.gov).
Nutrition facts are calculated from edible parts. For example, if one large avocado is listed as 200 g/7.1 oz, this value represents its edible parts (pit and peel removed) unless otherwise specified. Optional ingredients and suggested sides and toppings are not included in the nutrition information.
You can use raw cacao powder and unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch process) interchangeably. Ingredients are all full-fat unless otherwise specified. All ingredients should be sugar-free, unless you use dark 85% to 90% chocolate, which contains a small and acceptable amount of sugar.
By following the swaps below and those listed on page 15, you can adjust almost any chaffles to any dietary needs.
Heavy whipping cream or mascarpone > coconut cream
Almond milk > coconut milk or seed milk
Nuts and nut butters > seeds, seed butters, and coconut butter
Butter in sweet chaffles > palm shortening (use sustainable sources)
Butter for cooking > ghee, duck fat, lard, or even olive oil (only light cooking)
Spicy Fish Chaffle Stacks
If you prefer your fish cakes with a spicy kick like I do, give these a try. You can always adjust the heat by using mild curry powder and paprika instead of chili. Then swap the Sriracha for tomato paste and you’ve got a kid-friendly meal!
Harissa Lamb Chaffle Stacks
There are flavors that just work together every single time—this meal is a fusion of two of my favorite cuisines. Deliciously juicy Moroccan-style harissa-flavored burgers are drizzled with creamy Greek-style feta-and-herb dip. Serve these with satisfying chaffles and fresh crispy veggies, and you’ve got a satisfying meal prepped in less than half an hour.
Chaffle Sloppy Joes
A healthier take on an American classic. These Sloppy Joes are messy, saucy, and just as delicious—but with just a fraction of the carbs.
Chorizo Guac Chaffle Sandwich
If guacamole isn’t already enough to make your mouth start watering, add a few slices of crispy Spanish chorizo for an extra flavor boost and spicy kick. Feel free to use crisp crumbled Mexican chorizo instead.
These chaffles are like a cross between snickerdoodle cookies and churros. They are soft inside and crispy on the outside with crunchy cinnamon coating. Feel free to serve with soft and fluffy whipped cream.
Lemon Poppy Seed Chaffles
These zesty chaffles are like your bakery-style lemon poppy seed muffins. Add lemon-flavored whipped cream on top and you’ve got the perfect dessert for breakfast!
I admit I do have a slight obsession with tiramisu, and I’m always on the look for new ways to make tiramisu-flavored treats. In these chaffles I kept the topping super simple, so you won’t have to cook the egg yolks and whip up the egg whites like you would have to in a traditional tiramisu.
Coconut & Lime Cheesecake Chaffles
If you’re the kind of person who likes to enjoy a dessert for breakfast, this lime-flavored cheesecake chaffle topped with toasted coconut won’t disappoint. And if you’re throwing a dinner party, this tropical treat will look so cute!
