My family was recently introduced to an amazing keto-approved food called chaffles. I wasn't sure what to expect since the main ingredients are mozzarella cheese and eggs, but I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were! I ended up adding cinnamon, because why not!?! Honestly it tastes just like french toast, YUM!
First you'll need a waffle maker available. Due to having a big family, I chose the Hamilton Beach, 4 slice waffle maker, but if I was to do it again, I'd purchase one that has removeable plates, like this one; Hamilton Beach Flip Belgian Waffle Maker.
Now let me walk you through how to make these chaffles:
Preheat your waffle maker. You want it hot so that when the batter is placed on the pan, it will start cooking right away!
Collect ingredients. The normal chaffle recipe is only egg and shredded cheese, but I added a couple more ingredients because I wanted more of a waffle flavor. For the cheese, I do the thicker shredded cheese, but fine shredded works as well, however, it will become more crunchy if you go this route.
Mix ingredients. Mix all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl with a fork or spatula. At this time I do add the cinnamon to the mixer. You can add as much cinnamon you desire, but I ended up with about 1/4 teaspoon.
Cook your chaffle. Spoon the mixture to one of the waffle grates and close the waffle maker. Cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Cooking tip: You are going to see a lot of steam because of the cheese. That's VERY normal!
Once your chaffle is done cooking, eat it with your choice of side (bacon or sausage) and drizzle some sugar free syrup. Enjoy!
