What Is A Chaffle?

Chaffles are incredibly popular in the keto community these days, and for good reason. They are amazingly simple to make, taste awesome, and can be used for just about anything.

There basically two types of chaffles out there: first there is the traditional chaffle, and then there is also the dessert chaffle.

Both kinds of chaffles are made in the same basic ways, but the ingredients and uses will be a bit different.

The traditional chaffle is made with cheese and egg. This is how the name “chaffle” came about. It is essentially a cheese waffle. Traditional chaffles are mostly used as sandwich bread, but they have other uses as well. For instance, we used one as a pizza crust and it worked out perfectly or keto taco chaffles!

This white bread chaffle is very similar to a traditional chaffle, but it is a bit more like regular bread than a chaffle. It also is not as cheesy or crunchy as a traditional chaffle.

Dessert chaffles are amazing! They are super adaptable and can be used in a million different ways. We have done some pretty cool stuff with dessert chaffles like make a Keto Peanut Butter Cup Chaffle, Oreo Chaffle, and even a Strawberry Shortcake Chaffle! All of these dessert chaffles turned out tasting delicious! We have even more dessert chaffles on the site so be sure to look for those.

Dessert Chaffles often don’t require cheese, and they are often softer than traditional chaffles.

Are Apples Keto Friendly?

Great question! Personally, I always try to remember that “keto” is a metabolic state and not an ingredient. While apples do contain natural sugars and carbs, in small quantities, they can absolutely be enjoyed while maintaining a state of ketosis if they fit into your macros for the day.

Now, having said that, this recipe actually does NOT require apples. They can be added, but this apple pie chaffle gets its flavor from an Apple Pie Spice! In addition to the apple pie price, nutmeg, group clove, and cinnamon give this chaffle the perfect apple pie flavor!

Best Mini Waffle Maker To Use:

In order to make any type of chaffle, you will need some sort of waffle maker. Chaffles are typically about 4 inches across, making them perfect bun replacements or single serve desserts.

Since chaffles are normally small, we highly recommend using a mini waffle maker. Specifically, we recommend the Dash mini waffle maker. It is super easy to use, a breeze to clean, and makes the perfect sized chaffle every time.

This mini waffle maker can be purchased at pretty much any retailer than sells small appliances, but we recommend ordering from Amazon. Since chaffles have become so popular, a lot of retailers have sold out of mini waffle makers. Amazon seems to always be in stock though.

If you really love chaffles, or if you have a large family that loves chaffles, you may want to consider a waffle maker that makes multiple mini waffles at once. We recommend the Burgess Brothers ChurWaffle Maker  for families or chaffle enthusiasts.

This waffle maker will make four chaffles at a time, making it so much easier to cook for a family. The last thing you want to do is try to cook for a hungry family making one chaffle at a time. Everyone wants their chaffle to be cooked first and the family can’t eat together if you can only make one chaffle at once.

Whatever mini waffle maker you choose, making chaffles will be a breeze!
