What is a Chaffle?

A chaffle is a recent invention and is a combination of a waffle that is made with cheese- hence ‘chaffle”. Often made in a smaller waffle or chaffle iron, this delicious recipe is one you are going to want to bookmark. My waffle maker of choice is the Breville Creations Waffle Maker and it creates a larger Belgian style waffle in contrast to the traditional smaller square chaffle makers that are often featured. I love the fact that you can vary the temperature in the Breville waffle maker and also that it doesn’t stick.

How To Serve Keto Zucchini Bacon Chaffles

My favorite way to serve these chaffles is to top them with some delicious home made Sugar Free Tomato Chutney, a dollop of sour cream and some grated/shredded cheese. You’ll find the recipe for the chutney on the blog, and it goes wonderfully with the zucchini and bacon flavors of this recipe. You could also make this dish more substantial by serving a salad or some vegetables on the side.

More Delicious Chaffle and Waffle Recipes

If you are looking for some more fabulous savory chaffles you may want to check out these other recipes that feature on the blog. As with this recipe, these are all quite simple to make and are perfect for a more substantial but easy to make recipe.  The Keto Okonomiyaki Chaffle and Chinese Breakfast Chaffle (Jian Bing) are truly fabulous recipes that I highly recommend you try. The flavors are quite true to the original recipes as well.

So there you have some wonderful recipes that will see your waffle machine dusted off and put to good use. I use mine all of the time now and love how easy all of these recipes are to make and also how delicious they are.

  • ½ cup diced bacon or ham delete for vegetarian option
  • 2 spring onions/scallions sliced
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl
  • Add the grated zucchini, diced bacon, spring onions, onion powder, garlic powder, baking powder and salt and pepper to the eggs. Mix until well combined.
  • Add the grated cheese and the almond meal/flour, stirring until the mix is well combined.

  • Remove carefully from the waffle/chaffle maker and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Due to variances in the amount of moisture different almond flours/almond meals absorb, you may need to add more almond meal if the mixture is too thin. Note that it is quite a thick batter.
If your waffle maker is prone to sticking, add a teaspoon of EVOO- extra virgin olive oil to the mixture while creating the batter.
If you want your chaffles to hold together more. you could add a teaspoon of ground psyllium powder (not husks) to the batter. I find this isn't necessary but if your waffles break up too easily, you may find this useful. The cheese tends to help hold the chaffles/waffles together.
Note that the nutritional values represent a chaffle without any toppings.
Try topping these with home made Sugar Free Tomato Chutney, a dollop of sour cream, chopped spring onions and some additional grated cheese. To make more substantial, serve with a salad or vegetables on the side.

    Made these tonight but as I don’t have a waffle maker made pancakes. Absolutely delicious!! Thanks for the tip Karen. Will be making these again ?

  2. Love, love LOVE this one Karen, ahh who am I kidding? I’ve loved all your recipes so far ❤️❤️

    1. Awhhh…. thanks so much Shelley. A heads up- try the Okonomiyaki and the Chinese breakfast pancake as I can’t decide what recipe I like the most. All are waffle/chaffle recipes. Kxx

    Fantastic. Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. 5 min. was the perfect time in my old waffle maker. Wish the recipe were posted by weight to save a little time. Overall it was a little salty for my taste, so next time would omit additional salt since the cheese and bacon are already salty. However, the bacon surprisingly got lost in this combo, so next time might just have it on the side. Will definitely make again.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Sandra. This is one of my favorite recipes to make in my waffle maker. Make sure you check out the other savoury waffle/chaffles as well. I love how quick and easy they are to make.
