Have you tried chaffles yet? If not, you're probably wondering, "What in the world?"
Chaffles are a low-carb option to waffles. When made using a mini-waffle maker, they come out the size of a hamburger bun. Perfect for sandwiches and mini pizzas without grains and carbs.
One chaffle and I was hooked.
This mixture makes 2 chaffles.
1/2 cup of cheese, finely shredded (I've tried mozzarella and cheddar and both work great)
1/2 tbsp of coconut flour OR 1 tbsp of almond flour (both are optional but they make it more dense like a waffle)
Mix together. Plug in your waffle maker and follow the instructions that came with it. It will tell you when your waffle maker is hot and ready to use. Be sure to coat the grids with a healthy oil. Pour the mixture into your mini-waffle maker. Check them every so often. They should be brown and pull away from the grids easily when they're ready.
You'll have to experiment a little to see how done you like them. I like mine very brown with a little crunch.
When the chaffles are ready, you'll have a delicious, fun and versatile food.
Try it different ways:
sprinkled with cinnamon and REAL maple syrup (which contains up to 24 different antioxidants!)
with marinara sauce and your favorite pizza toppings
use in place of bread on a chicken or tuna salad sandwich
sprinkle garlic in the mixture before cooking, then, when they're done, top with cheese for delicious garlic "bread"
enjoy as an egg and cheese sandwich
Pinterest is a great place to find more ideas and recipes.
The possibilities are endless.
