Easy Breakfast Chaffle Recipes

So what exactly is a chaffle? It sounds weird, and I was initially skeptical, but the basic recipe combines eggs and cheese. So, instead of being called a waffle – it’s a chaffle. lol

A breakfast chaffle is just that—one that you’d typically eat at breakfast. There are many options, from yummy waffles to cinnamon rolls and breakfast sandwiches. Eating a keto-friendly breakfast never has to be boring!

Here Are a Few of Our Favorite Breakfast Chaffle Variations

Basic Chaffle

These low-carb waffles are so good and easy. They are made with an egg and shredded cheese. Serve with your favorite breakfast protein, such as sausage and/or bacon, and scrambled eggs for a big, yummy breakfast.

You can also mix cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar-free syrup right into the basic batter before cooking. Yum!! My kids love them like this. Cake batter flavoring makes them out of this world!!

Tip: Did you know you can cook sausage patties in the oven or air fryer? The oven allows us to cook a lot at once in batches, which is nice. The air fryer cooks them quickly if you are in a hurry.

Breakfast Chaffle Sandwiches

One of the best things about breakfast chaffles is customizing them just how you like them. Add ham, bacon, sausage, or another favorite protein. Then load up with cheese, eggs, and other fillings like tomato, avocado, mushrooms, onions, and peppers. I love a good breakfast sandwich! They are hearty and delicious.

My family loves all things Mexican-flavored. You can make a Taco Breakfast Chaffle with chorizo, scrambled eggs, salsa, avocado, melted pepper jack, or Monterey Cheese.

Chaffles & Sausage Gravy

If you love biscuits and gravy, check out this recipe for chaffles covered in a delicious homemade sausage gravy. It tastes just like what my mom used to make when I was growing up.

Cinnamon Roll Chaffle

At only 2g of net carbs per serving and topped with a delicious low-carb glaze, these cinnamon roll chaffles make a yummy, sweet breakfast treat.

Fun Add-In Ideas

One easy way to upgrade basic chaffles is by mixing in tasty add-ins.

Low-carb toppings like nuts and nut butter add healthy fats and more protein. My favorite natural peanut butter is Smuckers Crunchy, which adds crunch, too! You can also add almonds, walnuts, or peanut butter stirred right into the batter.
If you want a sweet touch, add a tablespoon of fresh strawberries and a bit of whipped topping!
