Looking for easy keto breakfast ideas other than boring old eggs? These simple keto waffles will really hit the spot! They're made with just 3 ingredients: almond flour, cheese and an egg. You can customize them from there to your liking-- make them sweet with a little vanilla extract, cinnamon and sugar-free syrup. Or make them savory with cheddar and chives to make a delicoius sandwich. Yum!

Keyword chaffles, keto, low carb
Servings 2 chaffles


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded cheese (I like mozzarella)
  • 1 heaping tbsp of almond flour


  1. Preheat your waffle maker (a mini waffle maker is best and should make 2 small waffles).

  2. Crack your egg into a bowl and whisk until well beaten. Add the almond flour and mix again. Next, stir in the cheese until well combined.

  3. Spray your waffle maker with non-stick spray and sprinkle a little cheese directly onto the griddle. Pour half of the mixture in and sprinkle with more cheese; close the lid and cook for 2-3 minutes or until your automatic timer goes off. Repeat for next waffle.

  4. Enjoy with a little butter and sugar-free syrup.

Recipe Notes

  • These can also be used to replace bread in a sandwich. Check out this Wonder Bread Chaffle Recipe if you'd prefer something soft that tastes just like white bread!
  • Shredded mozzarella or cheddar works well for this recipe. If you're eating them as a traditional waffle I'd recommend mozzarella. To make them a little more savory, try using cheddar.
  • Want to switch out the almond flour for coconut flour? Use teaspoons instead of tablespoons. Basically, cut the amount used to 1/3.
  • Here are a few additions you may consider to flavor your waffles: vanilla extract, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, cocoa powder, sugar-free chocolate chips, berries or a low carb sweetener.
  • These are freezable, and can be reheated in your toaster or on a hot skillet.
