Ohhhhh the chaffle. You either hate it or it’s a life changer for you if you’re living the ketogenic lifestyle! There’s no in between! I was not a fan of the chaffle…. until now! I thought it tasted like an omelette and I didn’t really get the craze for it. I gagged them down during my egg fast but I was not a believer.
I have seem hundreds of chaffle recipes and wasn’t really able to track down who started this trend. I did find a fellow YouTuber called Serious Keto who had an idea to try. The recipe had a few secret ingredients that made it special and less eggy. I thought I would give the chaffle one last try and I’m so glad I did!
There are two ingredients that makes it “bread like” and you can find them at your local grocery store. The first one is yeast. Obviously being sugar free there is going to be no reaction when you add yeast to a keto recipe but it still has flavor. The other ingredient is psyllium husk powder and that will give it the texture and fiber that you normally get from wheat gluten..without the inflammation! Plus psyllium husk fiber helps those on keto that have trouble being regular in the bathroom department.
I used my college waffle iron and don’t really bother with buying the mini dash that people are obsessed with. As a Texan, I like the more rustic look by using the normal sized waffle maker.
The Savory Chaffle – use with breakfast sandwiches, grilled cheeses, burger buns and more!
- 50 grams egg whites
- 1 tsp yeast
- 3 drops liquid stevia
- 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1 TBS psyllium husk powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese for waffle iron
Heat your waffle iron. Mix up all ingredients except the psyllium husk powder and extra mozzarella cheese. Add psyllium husk powder and mix quickly.
Sprinkle a tiny bit of the extra mozzarella cheese into waffle iron. Add half of the batter into the center of the waffle iron. Top with more mozzarella cheese. Cook until done and then place on a cooling rack. Repeat with second chaffle. Makes 2 large chaffles.
