What is a chaffle?
If you are new here you may be wondering “what is a chaffle?”
A chaffle is a cheesy waffle made from cheese and egg. Chaffles are a brilliant invention because they are a sugar-free, gluten-free, low-carb, fluffy waffle that is incredibly versatile because it doesn’t taste like cheese.
CHAFFLE = Cheese + Waffle
Super easy chaffles are like waffles but instead of regular sugar and flour (making a high-carb disaster), they are made with egg and cheese.
When making sweet chaffles the recipe will use almond flour, sweetener, and vanilla extract to help blend the sweet flavours and masking the cheese. Trust me!

So if these low-carb double chocolate chaffles pass the kiddo test, they're a winner!
How to make chocolate chaffles
Double chocolate chaffles are quick to throw together and easy to make.
Mozzarella cheese is used and has a mild flavour that blends well with cocoa powder and sweeter. Once the chaffles are cooked, they no longer taste like mozzarella but a delicious chocolate waffle.
How to make chaffle batter
To make the batter, mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl. The batter is enough to make two chaffles in a mini waffle maker.
Both cocoa powder and sugar-free chocolate chips are used in the batter. This is what makes your chaffles double chocolate.
The batter recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled when cooking for a crowd.
How to use a mini waffle maker
If you have never made a chaffle before, do not worry. Cooking chaffles is very simple.
First, you will want to preheat your mini waffle maker. Preheating your waffle maker is important to ensure your chaffle cooks evenly.
Next, grease the waffle maker with a little olive oil. I like to use spray olive oil. However, if you are using a towel to grease the waffle maker I suggest greasing the waffle maker before preheating it.
How to cook chaffles
Now you are ready to cook your chaffles. Pour half the batter (or a quarter if you doubled the recipe) in the waffle maker. Spread the batter around a bit to make sure the bottom is completely covered.
Close the waffle maker and cook the chaffle for 2-4 minutes. The chaffle will release a lot of steam. When the steam is almost gone, open the waffle maker and check that the chaffle is done. You can always close the waffle maker and cooker the chaffle for a little longer if needed.
Remove the chaffle with a silicone spatula and then cook the second chaffle.
How to serve chaffles
Serve the chaffles with a sprinkling of powdered sweetener and a dollop of whipped cream. These chaffles are rich with flavour and the perfect treat when you are craving something sweet (but you want to stay on track).
Double chocolate chaffles are amazing served with a spoonful of nut butter and a side of fresh berries. Breakfast or dessert your family is sure to love these chaffles.
How to store chaffles
Super easy double chocolate chaffles are perfect for making extras to keep in the freezer. Chocolate chaffles are a SUPERB emergency healthy kid’s lunch box filler. Here’s how to freeze chaffles:
- Let the chaffles to cool completely and all the steam to escape
- In an airtight container place layers of low-carb chaffles with sheets of baking parchment to separate each layer.
- Seal and freeze for up to 3 months.
- Defrost by toasting, frying or microwaving for 10 seconds. Enjoy.
So yes, you can freeze chaffles, but remember, you can make 2 delicious mini low-carb chocolate chip vanilla chaffles in less than 5 minutes.
7 top tips for sugar-free chaffles
- Always mix the egg and cheese well before pouring into your waffle maker
- Make sure you spread the chaffle mixture out evenly into your waffle maker
- If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can use a frying pan
- The longer you cook chaffles, the crispier they become
- You may substitute any mild cheese you wish to in place of pre-shredded mozzarella.
- Always check your pre-shredded mozzarella for additives such as potato or rice starch which is often added to prevent the shredded cheese from clumping. Find a good brand without these additional unnecessary carbs.

My first time making a sweet chaffle. It’s delicious. I made the mistake of not using finely shredded mozzarella which of course made a difference but it’s still good. Thanks you for sharing.

Hi In the body of your recipe you say 1/3 cup of mozarella but in the recipe card you say 1/2. Which is correct please. I have just made and they were nice but when I put the re Joe into MyFitnessPal the carbs are way over your calculation 😔.

Apologies, it should read 1/2 cup mozzarella. I have amended this n the body of the post above. Thank you for helping me make the site more accurate.
Just got my Dash mini and had to try these. I doubled the recipes so I can serve this weekend to friends with homemade keto ice cream. I got 5 mini Chaffles. I tried one just with peanut butter on it. OMG. YUMMY.
Do you have to use the sugar free chocolate chips that you recommend? they are very pricey for my budget
No, you can easily use cacao nibs or chopped dark chocolate such as Lindt 90% would be 2 good alternatives.
All of the recipes I have made from your site have always turned out, you do a great job with it.
My first attempt at a non savoury chaffle, was skeptical, but there was nothing eggy or cheesy about this recipe at all.
I onlt have a waffle 'basket' maker which makes for a very compressed waffle which is great for taco bowls etc but was wanting something fluffier with this one. I used my ancient breville family sized pie maker to make the choc chaffle and it worked a treat, it was perfect. Topped it with some cherry's, home made strawberry chia jam and cream- total black forest inspired yumminess.
Awesome JC! Another win for chaffles. They really are the best thing since .... well, everything 😉
