What Are Chaffles?

So, by now you are probably asking yourself, “what in the world is a chaffle?!” Fair question.

A chaffle is fairly simple. It is made of only two ingredients: Cheese and eggs. It is a cheese and egg waffle. At first, that might not sound too great, but trust me, it is really good!

As I mentioned, everyone in every keto Facebook group is making their own chaffle so of course there is some variation. Some are adding baking powder to get their chaffle to become a little fluffier, while others are simply adding things like bacon to make it tastier. You really can’t go wrong.


While this is the traditional chaffle, the chaffle has taken on various forms, many of which do not even include cheese! The chaffle has really grown out of its name (which, I assume, came about by combining the words “cheese” and “waffle”) and has come to include many other creations!

This keto snickerdoodle chaffle technically does contain cheese so it is a “chaffle,” but many of our other great chaffle recipes do not, like our Keto Peanut Butter Cup ChaffleKeto Peanut Butter Cup Chaffle, and  Oreo Keto Chaffles.

Sweet Chaffles Vs Savory Chaffles

As I already mentioned, there are two kinds of chaffles: sweet chaffles and savory chaffles.  Both are amazing, but have different purposes.

Savory chaffles are typically used as sandwich bread or pizza dough or anything in between. These are the kinds of chaffles that almost always contain cheese, usually cheddar cheese.

Sweet chaffles are exactly what they sound like: dessert chaffles! These usually include typical baking ingredients like baking powder, sweetener, almond/coconut flour, and any other ingredient you may need to make a sweet dessert.

Some of our favorite dessert chaffles are our Keto Peanut Butter Cup ChafflesKeto Strawberry Shortcake Chaffle, and our Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Chaffle which is especially great during fall!

No matter what kind of chaffle you create, you are sure to love it!

What Kind Of Waffle Maker For Chaffles?

mini dash waffle maker

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!

Best Waffle Iron For A Family

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 Burgess Brothers ChurWaffle 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!

Cleaning Your Mini Waffle Iron

silicone brushes

Cleaning your mini Dash waffle maker is so easy already, but if you want to make it even easier, consider these silicon basting brushes. They make cleaning the nooks of a waffle maker so much easier!

You can also use these silicon basting brushes to spread the butter on the chaffles before you coat them in cinnamon and sweetener! A good set of silicon basting brushes is always good to have in the kitchen!

How To Make Keto Snickerdoodle Chaffles

Gather your ingredients.

  1. Preheat your waffle iron so that it is hot when the batter hits the waffle maker!
  2. Whisk all your ingredients together until well combined in a small bowl.
poured batter in the mini waffle griddle
  1. Place HALF of your batter (unless your using a full size waffle iron) on to the mini waffle maker and allow to cook for 3-4 minutes. Do not overfill or you will have a huge mess! Trust me, I know all too well about that mess.. haha!

Crispy Chaffle Tip: Allow the chaffles to cool completely before eating. Chaffles tend to get crisper as they cool so patience is key!

  1. Melt butter and apply it to both sides of the chaffle with a basting brush. This will allow the cinnamon and sweetener to stick to the chaffle!

  1. Coat the chaffle in your cinnamon and sweetener mixture. We prefer to have the cinnamon and sugar on a plate and then just press each side of the chaffle on to the mixture.

Best Keto Friendly Sweetener To Use For Coating

As always, we prefer to use Lakanto’s Monkfruit for this recipe. Monkfruit is an all natural sweetener that is zero glycemic, has a 1:1 ratio to sugar, tastes wonderful, and has no cooling aftertaste.

If you’ve never tried monk fruit before, or if you just need to restock, shop Lakanto’s website and use our code, “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout to save 20% OFF of your entire purchase! That includes not just monk fruit but all of their amazing products that we know you will love.

How To Store Chaffles

Chaffles keep extremely well in the refrigerator and the freezer. Store your chaffles in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator and they will stay good for 2-3 days. Store them in the freezer and they will stay good for at least two months. If you plan to store them long term, I recommend wrapping them in aluminum foil and then placing them in a freezer bag, this will prevent them from getting freezer burn and drying out.

Can You Freeze Chaffles?


If you plan to freeze multiple chaffles, I would highly reccomend wrapping them individually or flash freezing them on a baking dish before storing them in freezer bags. If you freeze still-warm chaffles, the steam that will be released will cause the chaffles to eventually stick together.

How To Reheat Chaffles

Reheating chaffles can be as simple as popping them in a toaster for a minute or two. However, if you freeze these snickerdoodles with the cinnamon and sweetener already on them, you may want to reheat them in a toaster oven or conventional oven so that the mixture does not fall off in the toaster.

Chaffles reheat extremely well and make for great snacks and quick breakfasts!

Can I Use A Regular Sized Waffle Maker?

Yes! Just double the recipe and then pour half of the mixture on to the waffle maker at a time like normal. Since these chaffles probably won’t be used as sandwich bread or buns, the larger size shouldn’t be a problem at all.

Can I Use Coconut Flour Instead of Almond Flour For Chaffles?

Coconut flour is wonderful in chaffles! It will likely make your chaffle a bit more spongy, so if you prefer that sort of consistency then you will love coconut flour.

Just note that coconut flour and almond flour do not have a 1:1 ratio!! That means that, for example, 1 cup of almond flour is not the same as 1 cup of coconut flour! Instead, 1 cup of almond flour is equal to about 1/3 cup coconut flour.

This is because coconut flour is extremely absorbent. If you use too much, your chaffle will turn out really dry and probably inedible. If you use coconut flour, be sure to use about 1/3 of the amount of almond flour in the recipe!

    Just made your chaffle recipe this morning It is so good! I found it while looking for an easy French toast alternative to bring to a conventional family brunch so I would not feel left out of having a sweet breakfast option. I doubled the recipe and had a chaffle for breakfast today and I am very pleased with the result. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

  • Adaline

    Went to the Lakanto website – used the code on Monkfruit – says it is not valid for what is in my cart. (Classic Monkfruit 1:1 Sugar Substitute 8.29 oz) Upsetting. I haven’t found a sweetener that doesn’t give me wicked headaches and had been hoping to try it. Just a heads up. The recipe looks amazing would love ot try it.

    • Kasey

      The code should be working now. 🙂 Unfortunately it only doesn’t work when they already have a sale going on. Monkfruit is a great sweetener, I hope that you will like it!

  • Robin

    This is the 2nd chaffle recipe I have made and definitely a keeper! It was delicious!! I have found that each chaffle recipe i make, that if I use a heaping tablespoon of batter, i get 4 chaffles and no mess! They are not as thick, but still yummy and less carbs…..

  • Linda

    Can I replace the golden monk fruit with regular monk fruit sweetener or does it have to be the golden monk fruit sweetener in the batter mix?

    • Kasey

      Golden Monkfruit is Lakanto’s brown sugar equivalent. It may change the texture and taste slightly, but it should be just fine!

  • Melissa Stack

    If I don’t have the suggested sweetener on hand, can I sub with a Splenda type baking sweetener?

    • Kasey

      You can always try to substitute with another low carb sweetener, but be sure to track the amount of extra carbs (not all are 0 net carbs). Swerve is another alternative.

  • Cheryl

    Made these this afternoon. They are awesome. Even my husband enjoyed them. I ended up making 3 instead of 2 because they were overflowing the Dash. Will definitely be making these again!

  • Ellen

    I just made and ate these and they were wonderful! My husband took a bite and he also liked them. They are so easy to make and I get 3 Chaffles out of the recipe and I ate them all! Made a perfect breakfast for me!

  • Wendy leonard

    These are my new go to favorite breakfast treat or even dessert waffle. I loved them. The only ingredient I lacked was cream of tartar! So I looked at the purpose for the ingredient and even though I didn’t use it I can see where it would make these waffles that are very good to even better. So I will purchase cream of tartar and try them again. I doubled the recipe and poured in the amount of a wide mouth mason jar lid about 3-1/2 “ center – and it filled my waffle iron once cooked making a 7” round waffle. I would say one waffle is equivalent to 2 eggs waffles. Which easily fills your tummy. So a double batch makes 3- 7” waffles, equivalently to 6 eggos. If you want to make smaller ones a bun size. I would use the size of a regular mason jar lid about 2-3/4”.
    Thank you for sharing the recipe is perfect! ♥️
    PS – the only waffle iron I owned was a powerpuff girl 8” waffle maker, I bought for my daughter 20 years ago. It has swirls instead of grids but it worked perfectly, thank you Santa:) ♥️

  • Chris Doolen

    I made these Chaffles this morning. I will definitely make them again. I doubled the recipe so that I can have extra. I’m going to put them in the toaster.
    I LOVE THEM!!!
