Perfect for breakfast or a quick and easy dessert, this recipe creates the best low carb sugar free chaffles/waffles. Don’t stress if you don’t have a waffle or chaffle maker as the recipe also includes stove top instructions.

My favourite way to serve these is drizzled with sugar free maple syrup, topped with fresh berries and whipped or fresh cream...absolutely delish!!

If you haven’t had a chaffle yet, after trying these you’ll understand why there is a chaffle craze!

Ingredients (makes 3 mini chaffle/waffles)

  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup grated/shredded mozzarella cheese
  •  cup almond flour
  • A pinch of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon low carb sweetener (we like Monk Fruit Blend)
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk or milk of choice
  • A dash of vanilla extract
  • Optional-a pinch of cinnamon


  • Preheat a mini chaffle/waffle maker or use a larger Belgian waffle maker.
  • Place all waffle ingredients in a small bowl and mix until combined.
  • Mixture makes 3 small chaffles in a smaller chaffle maker or 1 large Belgian style waffle. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto your hot chaffle/waffle iron for a small chaffle or all of the batter into a large Belgian waffle maker.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes. Lift the lid and allow to cool for about 10 seconds before you remove the chaffle. If mixture starts to ooze out, lift the lid a little for about 10-20 seconds to relieve the pressure then slowly place the lid back down again.
  • Allow chaffles/waffles to cool on a cooling rack if desired or serve warm. Repeat process to cook remaining chaffles/waffles
  • Chaffles/waffles are soft when warm but crisp up as they cool down.

Serving Options

  • Top with butter and low carb strawberry or raspberry jam
  • Drizzle with a little sugar free maple syrup and cream.
  • Top with Greek yogurt and berries
  • Top with maple syrup, berries and whipped cream.
  • Serve with maple syrup and bacon on the side.

Storing Chaffles

  • Store chaffles/waffles in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Chaffles/waffles can also be frozen for use at a later date.

Recipe Notes

You can use a hard/tasty cheese or a mixture of hard and mozzarella cheese. Hard cheese will produce a slightly more crispy chaffle and the flavor isn't quite as subtle as mozzarella cheese. 


I use a Dash chaffle maker and my favorite waffle maker is the Breville Creations Waffle Maker, as you can adjust the temperature.


If you don't have a waffle or chaffle maker you can also cook these on a hot pan on the stove top. Make sure the temperature is quite hot and watch carefully to ensure they don't burn. Grease or oil the pan first and make sure the pan is hot before adding the batter.
