Keto Chaffle – An easy 5 minute waffle made with cheese and eggs! Perfect to top with avocado, some bacon or even just eat plain! Add some layers of meat and you can make your own OMAD sandwich.
If you haven’t seen, this ‘chaffle’ has been going around on instagram this past week. I’ve seen EVERYONE do it. At first I was a bit hesitant because I’m not too fond of really cheesy keto breads like fathead dough, but I figured I would give it a shot and see what it was like.
I won’t lie – it was pretty delicious. The longer you keep it in the waffle maker, the crispier it becomes and who can turn down crispy cheese? I know I cant!
Most of the recipes I saw for this, it called for more eggs and less cheese. But I didn’t want it to come out eggy so I swapped it around and used MORE cheese and less egg. Plus I added some psyllium for fibre.
The best part of this recipe (btw, if anyone knows who came up with this, please let a girl know so I can give proper credit) is that it is SO versatile. You can do so much with the batter, like adding spices, or you can top it with your favourite things.
I made a delicious OMAD (one meal a day) sandwich using bacon, ham, pepperoni, salami and prosciutto. It was incredibly tasty and it was roughly 1100 cals – perfect for my one meal! It left me satisfied!
This sandwich will be PERFECT to end or begin a fast!

I really like this version. I found it just in time for me to take back to school. I am a school nurse and sometimes I need a sandwich that I can eat on the run. This will do the trick. I like the added fiber to this recipe. I am not sure if it just helps with the fiber intake or helps them hold together better but I really like this recipe. I have seen Rachel Dee post a recipe for these on Facebook some months back. She may have been the first but I don’t know.
What is the brand of your two square waffle maker?
I love your recipes. Why the psyllium husk?
to add some fibre!
This looks delicious. I don’t know if you knew it, but this recipe and photo are in the book Keto Chaffle Recipes Cookbook (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08LH83XX7). I looked inside the book online to see if it would be worth the cost. Many of the recipes seemed to be copied from the internet (although strangely reworded to seem like they were written by a bot at times) so I searched for matching ones and yours came up here (although they’ve flipped the image). I don’t know if you gave permission for it to be used but I thought I’d give you a heads up.
Thank you! I had no idea. I will sort that out now. I definitely did NOT give them permission.
