I’m posting the video transcript below but you should know that it’s really no substitute for actually watching the video which is the original form of this content 🙂
Hey guys, Heather Hooker Keto here from HeatherHookerKeto.com, I am also HeatherHookerKeto on Instagram and on Youtube. I think I finally got this angle right so that you can see what I’m doing. What we’re going to do today is we’re going to make chaffle. So if you have made the transition to try to cut out some of those simple carbs, cut out some of that processed foor, cut out some of that sugar, this is a really good hack. There’s a reason why the internet is sort of going crazy over these chaffle waffles because they do sort of tastes like Eggos. So I’m going to show you how to make them. First, you need this little dash mini waffle maker, which is less than $10 on Amazon. It heats up really fast. There are no buttons on it. All you do is just plug it in. What we’re going to use today is we are going to use mozzarella cheese.

Ok who STILL hasn’t tried chaffles and what the hell are you waiting for? . It’s so easy! Spread a thin layer of mozzarella cheese on your mini waffle maker, top with half of one egg stirred with 1/4 tsp vanilla (the vanilla gives it more of a waffle taste imo) and then add a bit more cheese on the top, close the lid for about 2 minutes and BAM you’ve got a delicious zero carb waffle! I like mine with a pat of @kerrygoldusa butter and a drizzle of sugar free syrup! . ✨Follow me at Instagram.com/heatherhookerketo 🖤
We’re going to use one egg, and this is really like the basic ingredient list for a chaffle. Okay. One egg, a little bit of Mozzarella cheese. It’s going to make two chaffle waffles. And then what I like to do with mine is I like to add just a teeny bit of vanilla extract because I think it makes it taste more like an Eggo. There are a lot of different ways for you to use chaffles. You can make several, you can make them savory, you can add spices to them, you can add different seasonings, use them as your hamburger bun, use them as any type of bread for a Keto friendly sandwich idea. But you can also just eat ’em like waffles. So that’s what I’m going to do today, and it’s my son’s birthday today. I just got back from dropping donuts off at his school so that he can celebrate with his little friends. And I did not eat the donuts. I’m going make myself some chaffle waffles for lunch instead. So stay tuned. We’re going to make these right now. So first what I’m going to do is I’m going to take the egg, I’m going to put it into this little bowl, and then I’m going to take this vanilla extract. I like to use a quarter of a teaspoon for one egg.
So I’m going to pour that right into the egg and I’m just going to stir that up.
I think that makes a big difference.

In the flavor, one of the questions that I got whenever I first started talking about chaffles is do they taste really eggy? And I think that adding a little bit of the vanilla cuts down on the egg taste. So if don’t love eggs, if you don’t want your chaffles to be super egg tasting, adding a little bit of seasoning will go a long way. All right, so we’ve got the egg done. All we’re going do with the Mozzarella cheese is spread a thin layer and the bottom of this dash waffle maker. So a thin layer here.
If you are tracking your calories for weight loss, you will want to measure this out. Just weigh it out. I am not currently doing that so I’m not going to track. And then I’m just going to add about half of this egg mixture. Another
Thin layer of Mozzarella so that will have a nice crispy crust and then just close the lid there. Like I said before, there are no buttons on this dash waffle maker, so you can’t really mess it up. All you do is plug it in and heats up really quickly. You just open and close it. That’s it. And then you’re just going to watch this so you know how long it takes to cook an egg. It’s going to take less than two minutes. I’m going to double check this in just a minute. Pull it out. And then here is another hack for your chaffles is let them cool off on a drying rack. That will help them to be a little bit crispier. If you take these out and you put them directly on your plate, they can get a little soggy, a little mushy. I like mine a little bit.
Crispier let’s see, we’re starting to steam here, so I’m just going to double check that. Oh yeah, we’re not. We’re still cooking away, so then when my chaffles are done, I’m going to top them with a little bit of Kerry gold. So this is my favorite, favorite butter. It’s like so rich and creamy and then just a tiny drizzle of this sugar-free Syrup, and this is a grocery store near me. It’s the store brand sugar-free syrup. It probably is a chemical You-know-what storm, but I don’t eat it very often and I’m just going to use a little bit, so it’s going to be fine. Good. These chaffles just a few more minutes. The reason why we use Mozzarella is because it’s so mild. It doesn’t make the chaffles taste like cheese, so that’s a good option if you want them to be a little bit sweeter. If you wanted to make savory chaffles for like a hamburger bun or who use as a sandwich with a bunch of ham and mayonnaise and pickle slices, that might be my lunch tomorrow. That sounds really good. You could also use Cheddar. You could use really any taco
Cheese, taco shreds. Okay. Mexican taco shreds, make the chaffle and then make yourself a mini Taco. Heck yes. Okay. I’m going to try that at some point this week. Let me see if this little, this little guy is ready. Oh yeah. Okay.
So here’s our Chaffle. I’m going to put that on the cooling rack. Like I said, I don’t, I don’t like them mushy. So the cooling rack is key. All right, so we’re going to make our other
I do love this little waffle maker. I had a different, like a bigger one that I had bought to use with the kids and I don’t know what it is about this little tiny size,
But I just love it. It’s so easy and fast. It cooks them really fast because they’re so small, little bit more Mozzarella on top. If you see somebody making chaffles where they put the cheese in the egg, stir it up and then put it on the waffle maker. Just know that that’s a lie. Okay. Do not try that. I tried that first. It was a giant disaster. Don’t overfill your chaffle maker. That was another mistake that I made when I first started making these chaffles is if it’s deceiving how much egg needs to go in this little mini waffle maker. And if you’re, if you have a sort of personality like me, I was the first time I went to make these I was like, oh yeah, this whole thing will fit. Like we can make it fit, we can make it work. No egg started spilling out of this sides of the waffle maker onto my countertop here and it was kind of a disaster. So you use a little bit, one egg is two of the mini chaffles. If you have a regular size waffle maker, you can probably use one egg per chaffle.
Look how cute.
Perfect little chaffle. So that is almost cooled all the way off. I’m going to go ahead and put a little bit of butter on there. I like to put this on while it’s still a little bit warm so that it melts a little bit. So now we’ve got this situation just waiting on our second chaffle.
And then the dash mini waffle maker is non-stick, which I don’t -do waffle irons come in non nonstick because that would be crazy. I feel like at some point 10 years ago maybe I had a waffle maker that was made of steel and I used it one time and then when I tried to clean it afterwards I just threw it. I just threw it away because I was like, no way, no way am I cleaning out every single one of these little crevices. And so that’s another really good thing about this one is that there is no cleanup involved.
See it? This one’s ready. Oh yeah, we’re ready.
Okay, so I’m going to unplug my little dash. I’ll pull it up for you guys again so you can see just how tiny it is. It’s really small, like almost the same size as my hand and I have pretty small hands for an adult and it comes in a bunch of cute, I’m not, I’m not a dash sales rep, but it does come in a bunch of cute colors. I like this little turquoise color that I picked up, but I’ve also seen really cute red ones, and I think I’ve even seen a pink one, so you can get a little, a little fun with that. Okay, so I’m going to go ahead and plate these.
And then do a little drizzle of this syrup. If you are a reformed carbaholic like I am. Look how good this looks. So yummy. It really does taste good.
