Have you tried chaffles yet? They are more than just cheese waffles! You can enjoy them plain or with toppings, sweet or savoury. So versatile! All you need is a few common ingredients and no more than 15 minutes.
This low-carb sandwich recipe uses my Basic Keto Chaffles instead of bread. While I was working on my Keto Chaffles book I've tested over 15 recipes before I found the best way to make chaffles. They are fluffy with no cheese bits and no eggy taste. So if you've tried chaffles before and found them too eggy and dense, you're going to love these.
I used ham, cheese, tomato and lettuce as fillings but feel free to experiment with different ingredients such as avocado and egg, tuna with melty cheese, BLT or mozzarella & tomatoes — the options are endless!
Note that one keto sandwich will provide about 45 grams of protein and 730 Calories, so keep an eye on your macro targets if you are trying to lose weight. If you practice intermittent fasting, you could always have this as part of your two meals a day (TMAD) routine.
What Do I Need to Make Chaffles?
A 4-inch Dash Mini Waffle Iron is the perfect tool to make caffles but you can use a regular waffle maker which will produce bigger waffles. You can always spread the batter thin to get 2 waffles.
