If you have not yet heard of a “chaffle” it is a current low carb favourite recipe on the internet and is a simple recipe made with a waffle maker. The basic keto chaffle is just eggs and grated cheese (often Cheddar or Mozzarella). I like to think of it as another form of the Fathead dough without the cream cheese. Although I am tempted to put a Fathead dough in the waffle maker and see what happens.

Almond flour is used in this chaffle bread stick recipe as I found the pure egg and cheese version a bit flimsy for my liking and I wanted something firmer. However delicious as the egg and cheese chaffle was, I needed a firmer texture. I tried coconut flour but think that is more suited for a sweeter keto chaffle and preferred the texture of my chaffles made with almond flour.

I happily use my regular square waffle maker. A cheap and cheerful one from of the electrical stores here in St Lucia. A lot of internet posts are raving about the Dash mini waffle maker to make a chaffle. They make a small waffle at a time and this recipe would make 2 waffles. If you are using the Dash mini waffle maker, you will need to use only half of this chaffle batter at a time to make the one. The Dash mini waffle makes circular waffles. I am happy with my rectangle shapes. It really doesn’t matter what shape the waffle maker is. I found the rectangle shape perfect for cutting into strips to make a tasty garlic cheese bread stick.

I have been using mozzarella cheese for my chaffle experiments in the kitchen. I have enjoyed some made with cheddar cheese too and found them more suitable for a savoury recipe.

Chaffles are wonderfully versatile. This phrase amuses me as there is a British advert for potato waffles with the tagline of “waffly versatile”. If it were not for the fear of a large food company throwing their lawyers at me, I’d recycle this popular phrase with “chaffly versatile”. A chaffle can be used in many ways and is used as a low carb bread option. A popular way is to use a chaffle is to replace a burger bun. I’ve used it for my breakfast avocado toast, as a sandwich and our current favourite, a sweet dessert.

  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese grated
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 2 tablespoons butter, unsalted softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese grated


  • Turn on your waffle maker and lightly grease it (I give it a light spray with olive oil)
  • In a bowl, beat the egg.
  • Add the mozzarella, almond flour, garlic powder, oregano and salt and mix well.
  • Spoon the batter into your waffle maker (mine is a square double waffle and this mixture covers both waffle sections. If you are using a smaller waffle maker spoon half the mixture in at a time).
  • I spoon my mixture into the centre of my waffle maker and gently spread it out towards the edges.
  • Close the lid and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Using tongs, remove the cooked waffles and cut into 4 strips for each waffle.
  • Place the sticks on a tray and pre-heat the grill.
  • Mix the butter with the garlic powder and spread over the sticks.
  • Sprinkle the mozzarella over the sticks and place under the grill for 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted and bubbling.
  • Eat immediately! (Although we have eaten this heated up but are much nicer freshly made)

    These look so delicious, but I don’t own a waffle maker. Could they be made without one?

      You could try to pan fry the mixture, then cut into strips.
