There is a new food craze in the keto world. You might have heard of them already but if you haven't, keep reading. It's CHAFFLES!!
"But, what do I eat for breakfast?" Is one of the first questions a person who is first being introduced to low carb eating asks me. I tell them to quit cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, waffles, sugary yogurts, donuts, muffins and orange juice. Yest bacon and eggs are still on the menu but that gets old after a while. Here's a new option that is dead simple, quick and requires only two ingredients you probably already have in your refrigerator right now! Egg and shredded cheese (like cheddar or mozzarella). I've done both, and jack cheese. It all turns out great. If you already own a waffle iron collecting dust in the back of a kitchen cabinet, go dust it off and plug it in. If you don't (I didn't) go get one. I bought a mini waffle iron made by Dash off of Amazon or you can pick one up at Target.
The basic recipe is this:
1/2 cup of shredded cheese
Mix together in a bowl & pour onto a preheated waffle iron. Let cook for 3-4 minute or until the steam slows down or it looks browned and crispy. That's it!
You probably want to add salt. There are millions of variations. I've been mixing in
Sriracha sauce and everything bagel seasoning. I also make a chocolate variety.
Youtube has zillions of chaffle making videos!
