  • small spray of avocado oil or olive oil/coconut oil

Large Waffle Iron (as shown in photos)

  • 2 oz cheese thinly sliced (cheddar or Colby work best)
  • 1 large egg whisked

Small Waffle Iron (single waffle ingredients)

  • 1 oz cheese thinly sliced (cheddar or Colby work best)
  • 1/3 large egg whisked


  • Spray avocado oil on first, then cover the bottom of your HOT waffle maker in thin cheese slices. (I cut mine into triangles because I have a larger waffle iron)
  • Whisk together 1 egg (if you’re using a mini waffle iron, only use 1/3rd on an egg) and pour on top.

  • Place another layer of thin-sliced cheese on top, making sure you have an even coverage.
  • Cook the absolute shit out of it, until you can lift the waffle iron up without the cheese sticking (excuse my Aussie accent) - Usually takes around 6-8 minutes depending on your waffle iron

Expert Crunch Tips:

To make this recipe super crunchy, keep the original recipe. If you want your waffle slightly less crunchy and a little softer, add 1 more egg for the large waffle iron, or another 1/3 of a whisked egg for the small waffle iron.

Additional Chaffle Toppings / Fillings:


To make these chaffles sweet, you could use either 1/4 cup of queens sugar free maple syrup (AUS) or same amount Walden Farms pancake syrup (US)


Try making two chaffles, and placing butter on the inside, and a beef burger pattie with bacon and a little side of arugala (rocket). Think of these chaffels as burger buns to which you can put as many toppings on as you like.
