Best Sweet and Savory Keto Chaffles
We are huge fans of chaffles! They might actually be our very favorite keto creation that currently exists, and so we are super excited to share with you some of the very best chaffles currently in existence.
We have been experimenting with chaffles pretty regularly since we were turned on to them a few months ago, and we think we’ve come up with some pretty good ones. Our Oreo Keto Chaffles, Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Chaffle, and Keto Snickerdoodle Chaffles are some of our latest creations.
Chaffles have become super popular in the keto community as of late, and like any popular item, there is a lot of hype surrounding them. And food hype is hard hype to live up to. I’m sure I’m not the only one to have heard about an amazing new recipe or amazing new restaurant that is the ‘BEST’ only to try it and be disappointed. Some things just don’t live up to the hype.
Chaffles have always lived up to they hype! Whatever you have heard about chaffles is true! They taste amazing (and there are so many different kinds of chaffles [as you’ll see in this recipe] so you are guaranteed to find something you love), they are so quick and easy to make, and they can be used for anything.
When it comes to chaffles, the hype is real!
What Is A Chaffle?
There are essentially two kinds of chaffles: savory chaffles and sweet chaffles.
The most basic savory chaffle has two ingredients, which are cheese and egg (hence the name “chaffle” – a cheese waffle). This type of chaffle is typically used as a bun or bread substitute, and it works wonderfully.
Since the originally chaffle, many amazing variations have sprung up. Our personal favorite savory chaffle is our White Bread Keto Chaffle. It tastes EXACTLY like white bread. It is amazing!
Savory chaffles are super good, but we can’t forget about sweet chaffles! Sweet chaffles are basically mini cakes, almost like a sweet waffle.
There are endless ways to make a sweet chaffle, all of which I’m sure are delicious. The biggest differences between savory chaffles and sweet chaffles are that: 1) sweet chaffles contain some sort of sweetener or sweet topping (I bet you never would have guessed that) and 2) most desserts (or sweet) chaffles do not contain cheese, which is a bit ironic considering the name.
What Mini Waffle Maker To Use
In order to make a perfectly sized keto chaffle, you will need a mini waffle maker. The Dash mini waffle maker seems to be the waffle maker of choice for most, and that is because it works the best and is the easiest to use.
A few great things about this mini waffle maker is that it is small, so it takes up almost no counter space. OR, if you prefer to store it as apposed to leaving it on your counter, you can fit this thing anywhere! Since it’s so small, it is super easy to clean!
All of these things are great, but the best thing of all about the mini waffle maker is that it makes the perfect sized chaffle! Since the chaffle is often used as a bread replacement, it wouldn’t really make sense to have an 8 inch wide bun!
The mini waffle maker makes the perfect sized chaffle every time. And you just can’t beat $10 with free shipping on the DASH Mini!
If you have a big family (or just really love chaffles like I do), you may also want to consider getting a waffle maker that will cook multiple miniature waffles at once.
The DASH Belgian Waffle Maker is very popular in the keto community, and it can make four waffles at a time! The mini waffle makers are great, but if you are making keto strawberry shortcake chaffles for the whole family, it could take a while making one at a time.
No matter what you choose, your chaffles will turn out great, and you will love this amazing new invention called the chaffle!
