All the secrets of how to make CHAFFLES perfectly! Includes the best basic keto chaffles recipe, sweet chaffles (cinnamon churro + pumpkin), savory chaffles (jalapeno popper + garlic parmesan), tips, tricks, tricks, and substitutions. 😉


Basic Chaffle Recipe For Sandwiches:

  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 tbsp Blanched almond flour (or 2 tsp coconut flour)
  • 1/2 tsp Psyllium husk powder (optional, but recommended for texture, sprinkle in so it doesn’t clump)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)

Garlic Parmesan Chaffles:

  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 1/3 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 clove Garlic (minced; or use 1/2 clove for milder garlic flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)

Cinnamon Sugar (Churro) Chaffles:

  • 1 large Egg
  • 3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Blanched almond flour (or 2 tsp coconut flour)
  • 2 tbsp Erythritol
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Psyllium husk powder (optional, for texture)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Butter (melted; for topping)
  • 1/4 cup Erythritol (for topping)
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon (for topping)

Pumpkin Chaffles:

  • 1/2 oz Cream cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Erythritol
  • 3 tsp Coconut flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)

Spicy Jalapeno Popper Chaffles:

  • 1 oz Cream cheese
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tbsp Bacon bits
  • 1/2 tbsp Jalapenos
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder (optional)


  1. Preheat your waffle iron for about 5 minutes, until hot.

  2. If the recipe contains cream cheese, place it into a bowl first. Heat it gently in the microwave (~15-30 seconds) or a double boiler, until it’s soft and easy to stir.

  3. Stir in all other remaining ingredients (except toppings, if any).

  4. Pour enough of the chaffle batter into the waffle maker to cover the surface well. (That’s about 1/2 cup batter for a regular waffle maker and 1/4 cup for a mini waffle maker.)

  5. Cook until browned and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. (See my tip in the post above about other ways to tell they are done without opening the waffle maker!)

  6. Carefully remove the chaffle from the waffle maker and set aside to crisp up more. (Cooling is important for texture!) Repeat with remaining batter, if any.

Special instruction for churro chaffles only:

  1. Stir together the erythritol and cinnamon for topping. After the chaffles are cooked and no longer hot, brush them with melted butter, then sprinkle all over with the cinnamon “sugar” topping (or dip into the topping).

Serving size: 1 mini chaffle

The serving size of 1 mini chaffle is just for easy scaling, but sometimes you could have two, such as for a sandwich or full meal. The basic chaffle and garlic Parmesan recipes make 2 mini chaffles each. The cinnamon sugar (churro), pumpkin, and spicy jalapeno popper recipes make 3 mini chaffles each. The nutrition info on the recipe card is for the basic chaffles, but you can find nutrition info for the others in the post above.
