What Are Chaffles
Chaffles are waffles made out of cheese! They are low-carb and keto-friendly! You may be skeptical about the flavor, but when you use mozzarella cheese, they really are a great low-carb swap for waffles! They even taste great with traditional sweet waffle toppings like syrup. If you love a savory waffle, you also need to try our oatmeal cottage cheese waffles.
Chaffles have been around in our house for a while. We are a healthy-ish family and love a healthier twist on a classic whenever we get the chance. Well, this one can be eaten daily because it is totally guilt-free!

You can reheat chaffles using an air fryer, under the broiler, in a frying pan (with a little oil), in the toaster, or even the microwave (beware, they won’t be as crispy). Leftover chaffles can be stored in the fridge for 3-5 days, then reheated until warmed.
There are so many ways to make Chaffles. You can add different herbs or spices to the batter to change it up. The toppings are what makes them fun! Here are some of my favorite sweet and savory toppings:
- Sweet Option – Serve Chaffles with Jam, honey or maple syrup.
- Savory Option – Serve Chaffles with smoked salmon, ham, bacon, extra melted cheese, avocado, hot sauce, salsa or sliced jalapeños for some spice.

- 2 large eggs

- More Seasoning: you are welcome to add any of your favorite dry herbs and seasoning. Be careful with adding more salt, because the cheese is already salty.
