White Bread Keto Chaffle | Wonder Bread Chaffle
The hardest thing about living a low-carb life is living without bread, at least that the case for me. The prevalence of bread cannot be overstated. Everywhere I look, I see bread used for everything and paired with everything. There is even bread paired with ice cream, for goodness sake! So It is no wonder that avoiding bread in this day can pose a pretty serious challenge. Now, I bring some good news– a keto white bread chaffle that tastes feels and can be used in place of white bread! But what exactly is a chaffle?
Chaffles are a low-carb, keto-friendly ‘waffle’ made with cheese and egg. They are incredibly popular in the keto community as they are effortless to make, grain-free, taste fantastic, and can be used for just about anything. With this wonder bread chaffle recipe, you should be able to enjoy all your favorite bready foods like sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs, and whatever your heart desires. So let’s get started!
What You Would Need
The traditional chaffle typically consists of two primary ingredients cheese and egg. For this reason, the name “chaffle” came about- cheese waffle. While this white bread chaffle has a similar appearance, it is a bit more like regular bread than a typical chaffle. As it does not have any cheese, it does not have a cheesy taste or crunchiness compared to the traditional chaffle.
This white bread chaffle is so easy to make. All you need are a few key ingredients, and you’ll be on your way to the best chaffle you’ve ever had.
- Egg: is the main binding ingredient that holds the chaffle together and provides structure. It also adds protein to the chaffle.
- Almond flour: Almond flour is a low-carb, gluten-free alternative to traditional wheat flour. It is used in this recipe as a flour replacement to make the chaffle low in carbs.
- Mayonnaise: it is used to add moisture and flavor to the chaffle. It also helps to bind the ingredients together and creates a nice texture.
- Baking powder: Baking powder is a leavening agent to help the chaffle rise nicely and become fluffy.
|3 tbsp Almond Flour|
|1 tbsp Mayonnaise|
|1/4 tsp Baking Powder|
|1 tsp Water|
Preheat mini waffle maker.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make these chaffles in a regular-sized waffle maker?
Yes, you can make these chaffles in a regular-sized waffle maker. You may need to adjust the cooking time, and amount of batter used depending on the size of your waffle maker. Keep an eye on the chaffles while cooking to ensure they don’t burn.
Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour?
You can use coconut flour instead of almond flour, but remember that it is more absorbent than almond flour, so you may need to adjust the amount used and add additional liquid. Coconut flour also has a distinct taste, which some people might not like. If you decide to use it, start with half the amount of almond flour called for in the recipe and add more as needed.
Can I make these chaffles ahead of time and reheat them later?
Yes, you can make these chaffles ahead of time and reheat them later. To reheat, place them in the toaster or the oven at a low temperature until they are warm and crispy again. Reheating them in the microwave can make them soggy, so avoiding that method is better.
Can I make pancakes with the recipe?
While it is possible to do so, using the recipe just as is would result in a pretty dense pancake. You would need to adjust the recipe by adding more water or milk to make it less thick. We, however, might have some better pancake recipes for you:
Tips and Tricks For Making The Best Keto Chaffles
Crispy Chaffles: If you prefer a crispier chaffle, allow your chaffle to rest for a minute or two after cooking. When this chaffle comes off the waffle maker, it will be very soft and flimsy, but if you give it some time, it will become crispier.
Less Eggy: If you think that chaffles are too eggy (I know there are many of you), try using two egg whites instead of one whole egg. The yolks are always the eggiest part, so the whites alone should be fine.
Using Different Flours: We prefer almond flour for this white bread chaffle, but if you don’t like almond flour, you can try another low-carb flour of your choice. As with any substitution, note that the texture and taste may differ. Be mindful that substituting your other flour for a 1-to-1 ratio may not work, so adjust accordingly.
Freezing & Reheating: Chaffles can be frozen and reheated really easily. If you plan to freeze many white bread chaffles at once, you should consider freezing them separately on a baking sheet before tossing them into a freezer bag. If you skip this step, they would freeze together and be difficult to reheat. Speaking of reheating, to reheat these chaffles, all you have to do is pop them in the toaster for a couple of minutes.
Be Creative: Most of our recipes (especially our chaffle recipes) are incredibly adaptable, and this one is no exception. Use these white bread chaffles to make whatever you would like. Add your favorite spices to the batter. Use them for French toast. Why not try them with this Keto Pimento Cheese? Be creative and adapt them to your taste.
As with any white bread, alternative people are always interested in the texture and taste. In our opinion, the texture of this white bread keto chaffle is similar to regular bread— It is soft and chewy, but not in the wrong way. It is super light and fluffy. If you want to up the moisture in the chaffle, feel free to omit the water and add two more tbsp of mayo.
Nutritionally, the chaffle has a lot going for it. The cheese and egg in the chaffle provide a source of protein and fat, making it a more satisfying and filling alternative to traditional white bread.
