I gasped out loud when I first ate one of these. Way back in the day, my favourite café used to have a savoury hotcake dish on the menu that I adored, and these chaffles are so close to them that all of my fond memories were ignited.

To get the best chaffle texture, we're using our blending technique. And I'm telling you it's worth the extra step. Once you blend the batter, you will never go back to your old chaffle recipe. Blending creates a beautifully fluffy texture that is even with no cheesy chunks and no eggy taste.

Just like the original chaffle recipe, I used a 4-inch Dash Mini Waffle Iron. If you don't have one, feel free to use a regular waffle maker and double the batch to make about 3 regular-sized chaffles.

Pro tip: add a bit of pancetta for a delightful twist. Enjoy!

Hi there.  Would you sub out the flax with extra almond flour or whey. Flax has a tendency to upset my tummy


Hi Sharon, you could use 2 more tablespoons of almond flour instead, or about 2 teaspoons of coconut flour.
