Basic Chaffle Recipe: Egg and Cheese Waffle
What is a Chaffle? Well, my friend, a “chaffle” is a new sensation that combines the words “cheese” and “waffle” into one single word.
It’s a genius creation that only uses two ingredients as a base which you can modify into many different spin-offs. Here we have a basic recipe that only uses two ingredients: eggs and cheese.
Now you can enjoy a low-carb waffle recipe without almond or coconut flour! There is no almond milk either, so if you have a nut sensitivity, this nut-free recipe is for you! I do best with flourless recipes and am delighted with this easy way of eating protein in the morning.
This is a true, easy keto breakfast anyone can make all year long for everyday eating or special occasions.
It’s entirely acceptable to serve these at breakfast and save the leftovers for keto Chaffle burger buns once dinnertime rolls around. They are light and crunchy, which perfectly matches a juicy burger bun.
How to Make a Simple Chaffle Recipe
Gather your ingredient list, and you’ll make the best 2-ingredient keto waffles in just 10 minutes!
Whether you like them plain, sweet, or savory, this is an easy keto chaffle recipe you don’t want to miss.
Shredded cheese – I use cheddar because I love the sharp flavor, and it’s the classic ingredient for “original chaffles.” You can substitute with mozzarella or Colby jack if preferred. Whatever your choice, the cheese is essential for a great tasting waffle and crispy finish.
Egg – If you skip the egg, you’ll cook cheese into thin cheese crisps. As good as that may be, it will not look or taste like waffles. I don’t notice the recipe being too “eggy,” but if you’re worried about that, use only one egg instead of two. Using just the egg whites and no yolk will also decrease the egg flavor.
Step-By-Step Directions for 2-Ingredient Keto Waffles
While the waffle maker preheats, mix the cheese and egg together in a medium mixing bowl.
Pour batter into greased waffle maker
Tip the mixing bowl over your waffle maker and fill it up. Alternatively, scoop the batter with a ¼ cup measuring cup and pour the batter into the mold.
Follow your waffle iron’s directions (or see what Dash recommends) and cook until done! It’s that easy!
The consensus in keto Facebook groups is that you’ll get the best results with a mini waffle iron due to the cooking surface area to volume ratio. A mini waffle maker cooks 4-inch rounds crisped to perfection.
Plate hot cheese waffles and serve them warm.
I’m sure you see how customizable this simple chaffle recipe is. Make sweet keto chaffles by adding ¼ tsp store-bought or homemade stevia extract to the batter before cooking and serving with whipped cream and maple-flavored syrup. One-quarter cup of seasonal berries is a nice touch too.

Flourless Waffle Recipe FAQ
I understand you might have some questions, particularly if keto breakfast chaffles are new to you or you’re not used to flourless recipes. So let me answer some common queries and clarify the process for you.
Keto chaffle recipes vary; some use almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, spices, and other add-ins. For the basic chaffle recipe below, there are 371 calories per serving. If you add whipped cream and berries, you will need to adjust the macros accordingly.
Again, keto chaffle recipes vary. This recipe only contains eggs and cheese, both very low-carb ingredients. There is only one gram of net carb per serving!
Since it is best to make the batter right away, I don’t recommend storing this waffle batter. For this reason, don’t start the recipe until you’re ready to cook it. Cooked chaffles store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Over time they will lose the crisp, crunchy texture. Reheat a serving in the toaster, toaster oven, or broiler before eating. You can also store them in a tightly sealed freezer bag for up to 3 months.
While you can attempt to make a keto chaffles recipe without a waffle iron, the result isn’t exactly the same. Cook the batter in a skillet and it will result in a pancake. Tasty to be sure, but without the waffle grid finish and crispy texture.
