I might be late to the party but I wanted to create the best keto chaffle recipe. You wouldn’t expect anything less would you 🤣.

I am a bit of fuss pot when it comes to any keto bread recipes and I wanted to make sure my first keto chaffle recipe published was a good one. Trust me babe, you are going to have happy tummies with this recipe.

Why is it the “best” keto chaffle recipe?

So yes I have tasted quite a few chaffles since we got our chaffle maker. To be honest without a lot of seasoning I wasn’t really excited. So I began to experiment.

I actually have a few very early keto chaffle recipes in my very first Egg Fast eBook. Ones with jalapeño and goat cheese, or even sweet chaffle recipes too (they are pretty good).

This chaffle recipe includes one of of my favourite ingredients to use. Hemp seeds!

If you have followed me for a while you know I love to create recipes with hemp seeds. My Hemp Share Bread is popular enough to have its own postcode. But honestly I find hemp so nutritious and amazing in recipes that I reach for it more often than not with breads and baking.

So I rate this the best keto chaffle recipe because it is crispy, very low carb (around 0.5g per chaffle) but also has additional crispiness without the “oily” texture of other chaffles.

How do I make a chaffle?

This is far from a hard recipe to make. However, you will need a small waffle iron (a chaffle maker) to cook them.

Anyway here are my super simple steps to make a low carb chaffle that you will love.


Well apart from my sneaky Vegemite and cheese keto chaffle recipe above there are loads of ways to use these fabulous breads.

You may not yet know of all the similar health benefits of hemps seeds but trust me I am writing about them now.

Surprisingly there is loads of health benefits similar to an egg. So guess what I have added to my new Egg Fast 2.0? Oh yeah baby!

Also our Best Keto Chaffle recipe is included in the egg fast eBook and the meal plan. I have been losing weight follow the new plan and eating these. Get a load of my double egg and avocado chaffle burger below! How awesome is it?

Anway, chaffles can be served hot or cold. Use them in place of any bread. Make a chaffle burger, french toast, or soldiers to dip in an egg. As I mentioned I am using this best keto chaffle recipe whilst following an egg fast meal plan too.

FAQs & Hot Tips

Okay so here are some questions I think you might ask. For the ones I have not covered I will add later.

  1. I don’t have a Chaffle Iron what do I do? Chafflles can be cooked in a waffle iron or just as “pancakes” in a saucepan. Cook over high heat where possible.
  2. Can chaffles be frozen? Yes they can. Store them in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze in a ziplock bag.
  3. Can I leave out the hemp seeds? Yes you can. The mix will be oilier but yeah you can leave out the hemp seeds and even the cream cheese if you want.
  4. Can I use almond meal or whey protein isolate instead of hemp? Again… yes you can. Chaffles are pretty flexible.
  5. How can I make sweet keto chaffles? Simple. Add sweetener of choice (and to taste). Add any flavours such as vanilla, unsweetened cacao, extracts or flavoured collagen creamers or protein powder.
  6. What I can I top them with? Anything low carb. Like seriously. Bacon, avocado, egg, cheese, salad, berries. Your imagination is the only restricting factor here.

  • 200 g (7 oz) shredded mozzarella
  • 50 g (3.5 tbsp) cream cheese
  • 2 (2) eggs
  • 55 g (2 oz) hemp seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Extra mozzarella – read method
  • 1 tablespoon (1 tablespoon) parmesan finely grated


  • Place mozzarella and cream cheese into a microwave safe bowl. Heat 2 minutes on high.
  • Stir cheeses to combine then add egg, hemp and seasoning.
  • Heat chaffle iron and spoon on 1 tablespoon of mixture into the centre of the iron. Spread just a little and close lid. Cook 1-2 minutes before lifting lid, otherwise the chaffle will tear apart. If you want crispy chaffles sprinkle the iron with the tiniest amount of mozzarella and parmesan, (trust me it does not have to be a lot) and then spoon mixture on, spread and press the lid down but open it back up immediately to sprinkle the top with a little extra cheese too. This method works awesome.
  • Season chaffles and serve as a meal or top with your a low carb spread, butter, or fried eggs.


Chaffles can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Place into a ziplock bag to freeze.
Hemp seeds can be replaced with sesame seeds or almond meal HOWEVER this will raise the carb count.
Yes one chaffle is 0 carb or <1g net carbs.

    This recipe is amazing!! The best I have found! Full disclosure, I did not have the hemp and subbed almond flour and mixed cheeses, but so good!! I will definitely make again and make sure I have the hemp on hand!! I could see many possibilities using this base recipe!! Thank you!!

    So good! I love that you started me using hemp seeds, they are such a fab food!!! These chaffles are great, and not as oily as other recipes I’ve used (where I ended up with a pool of oil under my waffle maker!), I’m going to buy a mini waffle maker so I can make hamburger bun size with your recipes!

  4. Meagan Rourke

    Can’t wait to try these… I’ve just bought a waffle maker, but not sure the ideal temp to set it at? I’m guessing hot, to get crispy? I can set up to 230…. What would you recommend?

    First time using hemp in a chaffle – yum. Great idea. 🙂 Have elbow issues & didn’t want to stir the dough by hand, so warmed the cream cheese, added 1/2 t psyllium to make them more “bready” & then dumped all ingredients in the food processor. These were a hit in my house, including w/ the kid who doesn’t like cheese. Definitely will be making again.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      I am so happy you enjoyed them Marina x

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Woohoo! So good to hear that it worked without the cream cheese too.

  9. Teresa

    I have hemp hearts, not seeds. Can I sub them? If so, how much less should I use?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Teresa, it is just lost in translation but it is the same as our hemp seeds are shelled.

  13. Chloe

    Made these this morning- did 1/2 hemp and 1/2 almond meal as I was running low on hemp seeds- holy moly! Amazing!! Made 5 large ones, and cut one on half to make a sandwich. So good!! Thank you for this- can see them being an every week meal prep item!!!

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      They sound awesome Chloe too Chloe. I am so glad you enjoyed them.

  14. Cindy Westlake

    Hi there. At the risk of sounding stupid, is the almond meal swap the same amount? 55g?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Not stupid at all Cindy, but yes in this case it is just a straight swap.

  15. Sally

    Wondering how many chaffles this recipe makes? And any suggestion for thermo method? Thanks so much, excited to try this doing the egg fast.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Sally, the recipe makes 10 chaffles. You will see servings just above the ingredients heading in the recipe card.

  16. Kay

    Hi Megan,
    I haven’t tried it yet as I am not a huge fan of cheese, yes I know I’m weird! (Casein Intolerance). Anyway, is there any way to make one without the cheese? Would you use a pancake mix style of batter? Thanks.

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Kay yes you can make waffles with my pancake batter. Here is the recipe link for you https://madcreationshub.com/recipe/keto-pancakes-with-almond-flour-coconut-flour/

    I really enjoyed these chaffles. They are crispy and filling and very easy to make. I just use my normal waffle maker which has 5 portions in it . It works fine . They will be great to keep a stash in the freezer too. Love this recipe and will definitely be making these ones often

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      So glad you are enjoying the recipe Lynda.

  18. Jean

    Hi Megan, I really want to try the chaffles but what chaffle maker do you recommend please? TIA!!

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      Hi Jean, I just bought a cheap one on wish and added a plug to fit Aussie outlets
