Chaffles, are the newest craze in the Keto world, and the best news is they're also gluten-free!

The original thought was born out of the idea of combining cheese and eggs to make a low-carb bread replacement option for the Keto diet. So, as a diagnosed Celiac, Chaffles caught my attention right away, as do most Keto recipes*.

While I’m not quite sure who created the first Chaffle, I can tell you that they became an instant success seemingly overnight. Now they’re showing up virtually everywhere!

The reason that they’ve become so popular, I believe, is because of the variations in making them. We’ve tried many Chaffle recipes here at G-Free Deliciously from dessert to savory – using them as bread for sandwiches, in place of buns for hamburgers, and all on their own as a healthy snack. We’ve even invested in a Chaffle Maker, a tiny waffle maker that makes the cutest little 3-inch circular Chaffles that are the perfect serving size.

The recipe base of every Chaffle is two ingredients, egg, and cheese. For dessert Chaffles, you’ll typically use mozzarella cheese, while savory Chaffle recipes will use cheddar. They are super simple to make, and usually, you’ll have many of the ingredients needed for making a variety of recipes already in your pantry and fridge. Watch for new recipes; I’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing more Chaffle recipes showing up very soon.

If you’re curious, yes, chocolate is approved in the Keto diet. You can check out this shopping list from my friends over at Tasteaholics. Make sure the chocolate is dark chocolate 70% cocoa or higher having about 10 carbs per ounce.

And, for the whipped cream in this recipe, heavy whipping cream keeps you low in carbs.

Enjoy this Fudgy Chocolate Dessert Chaffle plain or top with your favorite toppings (Keto-approved, of course.)

Years ago, a British born friend introduced me to tea cakes during our weekly get-togethers that we organized as play dates for our toddlers. While the kiddos played, we visited, studying the bible and nibbling on, you guessed it, wonderfully delicious homemade tea cake while sipping tea from our Corelle teacups with saucers.

Maybe the best thing about following a low carb diet is that it doesn’t leave out the sweets. ...

Despite the exclusion of sugars, grains, and processed foods, when eating low carb, it’s still possible to satisfy your craving for dessert!

If low carb, Keto-friendly meals, and desserts sound interesting to you, my friends over at Tasteaholics recently created a series of eCookbooks, in which every recipe is made using only five ingredients. If that’s not already helpful, all the recipes are 5 grams of net carbs or fewer!

Talk about a no-brainer.


Note: *Because the Keto diet does not include foods like pasta, bread, flour, and other wheat products, the recipes in the Keto diet are usually also gluten-free. Please note that if you are fixing a Keto recipe, please make sure to use certified gluten-free soy sauce and baking powder and carefully read the labels on all processed ingredients to make sure that they have no gluten in them. I can’t stress enough how important it is to read labels carefully before buying!

  • Preheat your Chaffle or waffle maker. Spray lightly with high-heat cooking spray.
  • Whisk the eggs and whipping cream in a small bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  • When the waffle maker is heated, divide the batter into the fillable areas, being careful not to overfill the plate areas. Close the lid to cook. As the Chaffles cook, there may be some steam that escapes from the sides, and the lid may slightly rise as they cook. These are both signs of delicious Chaffles on their way!
  • Cook the Chaffles for 3-5 minutes until the indicator light turns to green, or until the upper lid lifts easily and the chaffles are lightly browned and look fluffy. Remove the Chaffles from the maker carefully, as it is very hot.
  • Repeat steps three and four until any remaining batter is gone.
  • Plate up and serve with whipped cream and berries, or sugar-free ice cream as a low carb treat. Enjoy!

I'm so happy you're here,

I’ve always loved food. I’ve loved to think about it, write about it, and talk about it. Then suddenly, one day, everything I thought I knew about nourishing my body changed when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE now my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
