Savory Cheddar Cheese Chaffle Recipe

  • Author: amycaseycooks
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4 minutes
  • Total Time: 9 minutes
  • Yield: 2 chaffles 1x


The chaffle (cheese + waffle) is a low carb, keto friendly, gluten free and savory bread alternative. Made with egg whites, shredded cheese, almond flour, and a pinch of baking powder, the 4 ingredient mini waffle is perfect for breakfast or lunch sandwiches, appetizers or just for snacking.


  • 3 tablespoons egg whites
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Heat a mini waffle maker or a multi mini waffle maker for 5 minutes.
  2. To make the chaffle batter, in a small bowl combine the egg whites, cheddar cheese, almond flour and baking powder. Stir to combine.
  3. Put 1/2 of the batter to the heated waffle maker and close the lid.
  4. Cook the chaffle for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes. Remove the chaffle to a cooling rack.
  5. Add the remaining batter to the waffle maker and cook the chaffle.
  6. To make sausage breakfast sandwiches, place a cooked sausage patty between two warm chaffles. You can also add fried and scrambled eggs and slices of cheese.


  • Make sure to preheat the waffle iron for at least 5 minutes.
  • The mini waffle maker and multi waffle maker are both nonstick. I have never had a problem with chaffles sticking. But if you want to make extra certain the chaffles slide out, lightly coat the waffle iron with cooking spray.
  • Some chaffle recipes use whole egg. I prefer chaffles made with egg whites. Using only egg whites makes for crispier and less eggy chaffles. Purchase egg whites in pint or quart containers from the grocery store.
  • The waffle will steam when they first start cooking. When the steam stops after 3 1/2 to 4 minutes the waffles will be crispy and golden brown.
  • Cool chaffles on a cooling rack so they stay crispy.
