Chaffles, 3 ways

Chaffles made 3 different ways!

Chaffles, if you haven’t tried them, you must!

If you haven’t yet caught on to the craze surrounding chaffles, let us enlighten you. First of all, the base recipe is only TWO INGREDIENTS. And they’re usually ingredients you already have stocked at home. Just one egg and some cheese. And just from looking at the nutrition facts, you’d be surprised at how filling it can be. This recipe is as pure as it is simple. Two basic ingredients that aren’t filled with added sugar, simple carbs, or highly processed. In fact, it hardly has any carbs.

Eating just one serving (one Chaffle) doesn’t even have a full gram. Who knew it could be so easy to come under your carb count? (We did. That’s why we’re sharing it with you!) This recipe has been around for a few years, so we think it’s time for an update. For our lactose intolerant friends, we know this recipe is dairy-based. But we didn’t leave you out! We went a dairy-free route for our first recipe! Everybody deserves a Chaffle moment!

We tried our hand at a dairy-free combination and found it was just as fluffy and delightful as the lactose variation. Make these chaffles, have one for the day, and store the other in the fridge for tomorrow’s breakfast! Or if you’re feeling particularly nice, you could always share with your office buddy for a shared pick me up! Make it sweet and enjoy with monk fruit syrup, or go savory with some hot sauce (most of them have little to no calories!)

Next, we made a cheddar Chaffle with nutritional yeast for added flavor and nutrition. If you haven’t added nutritional yeast to your pantry, you might want to. It’s a low-sodium, dairy-free alternative to that tantalizing cheese flavor. You could definitely add this to your dairy-free Chaffle to ramp up the cheesy goodness. It also adds essential B12 vitamins and protein to your diet. One tablespoon contains 20 calories, most of which your body burns just by scrolling through our Instagram!

We decided to try this ingredient after seeing our friendly neighborhood vegan sprinkle the yellow gold all over her salads, soups, and practically anything else she eats! It’s the ideal supplement for vegans and vegetarians since it helps plug the nutritional hole found in some plant-based diets. It’s also free of most allergens like gluten, soy, and nuts, making it safe for folks with sensitive stomachs or food allergies. Even if you don’t fall into any of these categories, it’s still worth adding to your diet!

For the last recipe, we tossed together some mozzarella and Italian seasoning, and man it was good! Feel free to grab the low-skim mozzarella, but since you’re already saving so much on your caloric budget with this recipe, why not go full fat? Try all three, tell us which you love and which you adore. Stay tuned for more recipes!
