GLUTEN FREE CHAFFE WAFFLES WITH CHEESE AND BACON
Whoever came up with keto 'Chaffles' is brilliant! Pinterest and Instagram are now full of pictures and how-to videos for these gluten-free waffles with cheese. To do this, finely chop a (half) ball of mozzarella and mix it with egg to form a low carb waffle batter.
But I can honestly say that your chaffles will not only taste like cheese! Especially if you add some almond flour and coconut flour to the batter for some extra binding and structure. To add some extra fats, I serve it with fried strips of bacon.
With a ketogenic diet, everything revolves around consuming as many fats as possible (70%) and then there is 20-25% left for protein and proteins. And only 5-10% for carbs from fruits and vegetables, which is why I also serve my chaffles with a serving of iceberg lettuce.
2 eggs half ball of mozzarella (about 60 gr)
1 tablespoon almond flour
1 tsp coconut flour
10 gr grated cheese
3 strips of bacon (approx. 40 gr)
2 tbsp zero carb pancake syrup
Additional: food processor frying pan or griddle waffle iron cooking spray
Place the eggs in the mixing bowl of the food processor. Break the mozzarella into pieces and add. Season with a pinch of pepper and a little salt (not necessary). Pulse the whole thing briefly. Don't have a food processor at home? Finely chop or grate the mozzarella and beat the eggs beforehand. Add the almond flour and coconut flour and mix well. Pour into a pitcher and let it sit for a while. Meanwhile, preheat the waffle iron.
In the meantime, preheat a frying pan or baking tray and fry the bacon strips on it and until slightly crispy. Lightly grease the waffle iron with cooking spray and pour the Chaffels batter over the plates. Sprinkle with a little of the grated cheese and close the ice cream.
Bake the waffles in a few minutes until nicely browned and cooked through. With this recipe I can make no less than 2 XL waffles and that is really enough for 1 person. Remove the Chaffels waffles with cheese from the mold and serve on a plate. Place the crispy bacon on top and spoon the zero carb syrup over it.
