The Best Crispy Cheese Chaffle Recipe Ever!

Sharing this post!

This cheese chaffle recipe is an upgrade to the basic chaffle recipe. It uses just 4 ingredients to deliver a solid base for my favorite way to use it, a chaffle pizza!

It’s great on its own though. Make them as a snack, dip them in keto marinara sauce, put them in your lunch box or make them for brekkie when you need to increase your fat and protein content, because it’s loaded!

Look at this crispy golden goodness.

Get You a Large Chaffle Maker

I used my Black and Decker Belgian Waffle maker to make these chaffles. It gives me a large 7.25″ waffle that’s the perfect size for a personal pizza or a good lunch serving in one go.

Or, you can use a Mini Dash Chaffle Maker to make cute small 4″ waffles. I get annoyed having to make 8 waffles in mine when I’m doubling this recipe for me and the munchkin so I like to use my larger waffle iron for this job.

Crispy Cheese Chaffle

To make this crispy cheese chaffle, all you’ll need are these 4 ingredients:

  • 1 cup low-moisture mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 large egg

Feel free to add other seasonings to the mix if you’d like. I like to add dried herbs when I’m using this recipe as the base for a chaffle pizza. I also double the recipe in its entirety if I am making two.

Putting the finished chaffle on a cooling rack will help it to crisp up even more. The center will still be nice and ooey-gooey for a delicious savory chaffle.

No xanthan gum? This recipe will still be great without it! Check out my basic chaffle recipe here.
