Wonder Bread Chaffles

I’m still holding my weight down and enjoying the feeling of not carrying around the extra pounds. It’s amazing what a difference 10, 20 or 30 lbs loss makes. In the grocery store the other day, I picked up a 10 lbs bag of potatoes and thought to myself, “this is pretty heavy and I lost 3 of these bags in weight”. I have kept the weight off by staying away from breads and pasta and sugar. However, I will grab a handful of cheez-its every now and again and I have had some thin crust pizza. But I think staying away from starchy foods contributes to a healthy weight loss. 

People will ask, “If you don’t eat bread, then how to you have a sandwich?” There are alternatives out there for bread. I bought a loaf of “Keto” bread the other day. It was ok and did fine for a sandwich. Keto bread is often made with Almond flour or Sunflower flour. These breads are expensive and run about six dollars a loaf. With that being said (or rather spelled out), I chose to make my own bread if I want a sandwich or toast.

I made some bread using my little Dash waffle maker. I have blogged about making chaffles before but chaffles use cheese, egg and almond flour. They are really good too but I didn’t want all the cheese this time. I searched around and discovered “Wonder Bread Chaffles”. They turned out light and fluffy and made the perfect sandwich. 

No, they did not taste like waffles. They did not have any waffle ingredients in them. They taste just like regular bread. I plan to make them this way for now on when I want a sandwich. I have tried making the microwave bread with basically the same ingredienta but these chaffles are way better. 

I slapped some deli ham and provolone cheese between to pieces and had the perfect sandwich without real bread. Want to know how I made them? Easy!
I have the recipe below. “Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it”.


1 large egg (whisked). I used liquid egg whites.
2 Tbsp Almond Flour.
1 Tbsp Mayonnaise.
1/4 tsp baking powder.
1 tsp water.

-Preheat your mini waffle maker. (I use a Dash)
-Add all ingredients together and mix well.
-Spray waffle maker and pout half the batter in.
-Close the lid and let cook for 3 minutes.
-Repeat for second piece. 

Make ahead and place in sealed container or plastic bag. Stays fresh for about 3 days in a sealed container.

Keto Crackers

I am not on a Keto diet. I do not think it is a healthy diet to stick too but I do like to make some Keto dishes because I am trying to stay away from breads. One of my favorite is the Chaffles I shared in another blog post. I also made flourless Bagels and Cauliflower bread sticks before. 

Today, I want to share with you these delicious Keto Crackers made with only two ingredients. 

➞2 Cups Almond flour
➞1 Egg
➞ Spices (optional)
Place it all in a food processor until the dough is formed. 
(Mine looked like little beads until I kneaded it in my hands).
Put the dough between two pieces of wax paper and roll very thin. 

Cut into squares or rounds (any shape of choice) and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet 
and bake 350 for about 10 minutes. 
Keep an eye on them. Once the edges start browning, they are done. 
(You can also poke holes in them to give them a different look)

Some of mine were thinner than others and those browned quicker. 

These crackers are sort of bland so you may want to add salt or seasoning of your choice. I added “everything bagel” seasoning and they were delicious/  
If you leave them plain, you will think your eating those nasty communion wafers served at what us Baptist call “The Lords Supper”. 

My husband took one then asked where the wine was. Ha ha. 
He was just kidding because mine were full of flavor from my added spices and would be great served with a veggie dip or cheeseball. 
They didn’t last long.

These would also be great served on a Charcuterie board which I would love to do one day. 

Pro Keto Shakes

Summer is coming and that means it’s time to start thinking about cold drinks and smoothies. I have fallen into some bad eating habits since December and it’s beginning to show. I plan to replace one meal with a smoothie or healthy shake. I need something that is low in calories and high in protein. 

I think I may have found the remedy to loose the extra pounds that I have put on in the past few months. I am currently giving these Lean180 Pro Keto shakes by Skinny Jane at try. 

I am surprised at how delicious and creamy they are. They do not have that gritty or chalky taste like other protein shakes. I am also impressed at how easy they mixed. You just add one scoop of powder and 6 ounces of water or milk of your choice with a 1/2 cup of crushed ice. Place it all in your favorite mixer cup and shake. The powder dissolves quick and does not leave clumps. I didn’t even have to use my blender. 

They come in 3 different flavors; chocolate, vanilla and salted caramel. I chose the vanilla because I think there are more “Mix in options” to change the flavor such as strawberries, raspberries or blueberries. However, I liked the shake alone with no other flavor than the rich vanilla flavor it has to offer. It was like having a cupcake in a cup. 

Skinny Jane Lean 180 Pro Keto Shakes have a lot of benefits to help you lose weight and not feel hungry.
