Jump to Recipe

Chaffles (a cheese waffle) has become the latest craze as a bread substitute! I used egg whites and fat free cheddar cheese for a perfect low calorie chaffle.

Can we talk about the latest craze, #CHAFFLES? Popular in the keto community, I only learned about it a few weeks ago when my husband took a river rafting class. One of the ladies in his group would bring her sandwich on the river, and instead of bread, she simply combined cheese and eggs to make a chaffle!

And even though I love bread, this low calorie bread alternative really hits the spot!

This idea for a chaffle was reason #2 I wanted to buy a Dash mini waffle maker. Reason #1 was to make these delicious low calorie waffles here!

But, to make this ULTRA low calorie, high protein, low carb, and low fat, I used egg whites, fat free cheese, and my new Mini Waffle Maker!

I LOVE THIS WAFFLE MAKER!! (Amzn link here, but I got mine at Target)

You can do this on a regular waffle iron, and just use 1/4 of the iron. You can also double or triple the recipe and make it a full size waffle.

To make a chaffle, simply whisk together some cheese and eggs. I used egg whites, and fat free cheddar. Fat free cheddar cheese can be difficult to find. The only place I’ve been able to purchase this is at Walmart. Your stores might be different, but Walmart definitely has this under their Great Value brand.

Then, once you whisk together your ingredients, spray a mini waffle maker and pour the egg and cheese on it. Then, just cook it till it’s done.

I hope to make more variations on the chaffle soon, so If you have a favorite variation or sandwich you like to use for this low calorie chaffle, let me know in the comments.
