Chaffles

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. 


CHAFFLE
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.

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.
