Ok yall, I could not take it any longer. I have been wanting one of these little Dash mini waffle makers for a couple years now. I just did not need another kitchen gadget. I have a regular waffle maker but always thought it would be nice to have a “limited portion”. I also thought it would be something I could use in my camper. 

After seeing recipes for “Chaffles”, I finally gave in to my wishes and bought a mini waffle maker. 

What is a Chaffle? 
It is a healthy Keto way to make waffles which means no bread. They are low in calories and high in protein. They are all made with a basic base of egg, cheese and almond flour. Some even leave out the almond flour and just use egg and cheese. I just prefer them a little more fluffy. You can find so many ways to make different flavor Chaffles. 

1 egg
1/2 cup cheese (I used mozzarella).
1 tablespoon almond flour.
(Makes 2 waffles)

After making my first Chaffle, I was hooked. I added butter and syrup and me and Nick did a taste test. I was afraid they would be eggy or taste cheesy but the didn’t. They were surprisingly good. 
But wait, they go beyond breakfast waffles. You can add in ingredients and make them sweet or savory. 

I made a sandwich chaffle to take to work with me and it kept great in the cooler and it was so good! This will be my new way to eat a sandwich for a while. It was filling and didn't leave me feeling bloated. I was satisfied until my next meal. 

You can top your chaffle with cheese and pepperoni then place in a toaster or oven and have your own healthy personal pizzas. 
You can also make chaffle tacos by using them as your taco shell. The possibilities are endless.

Of course I had a sweet tooth tonight so I gave the Chocolate Chaffle a try. I made it the same way as the original chaffle but added some Stevia and cocoa. I’m not sure if I really liked this one or not.

It’s crazy that I could not taste the egg or cheese but I thought it was a little bitter. I am not a fan of artificial sweeteners, so I probably wont make this one again, but my kitchen is smelling pretty good right now. 

Word is getting around, so these little Dash mini waffle makers are getting hard to find in stock at most stores but you can find them now on Amazon.

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.
