Having a balanced diet is not always easy. For those who love eating bread, removing it from your diet can be a difficult task.
I’m here to help bread loving eaters who happen to be on a keto diet. This white Wonder Bread chaffle recipe is a great option to stay on your diet and enjoy something delicious.
To clarify, the brand Wonder Bread doesn’t make an appearance here, but because the white bread is such a yummy hit but a no-no in the keto dieting world, this is the closest thing to it!
What is a Keto Diet?
Well, A healthy ketogenic diet should consist of about 75% fat, 10-30% protein, and no more than 5% or 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day. People on a keto diet focus on high-fat, low-carb foods like eggs, meats, dairy, and low-carb vegetables, as well as sugar-free beverages. They stay away from highly processed items and unhealthy fats.
Can you Eat Bread on a Keto Diet?
Since carbs are present in many healthy, keto-friendly foods like leafy vegetables and fruit, it’s recommended to stay away from other grains and carb-heavy starches, like bread.
But because regular bread is so good, we’re going to make it work with this chaffle recipe. With this, you can make all kinds of desserts and use them for burgers, sandwiches, and even pizza.
What is Chaffle?
The word “chaffle” refers to a waffle made with just cheese and eggs. Basic chaffles do not contain flour, baking powder, or any other ingredients – making them great for people on a keto diet! The mixture of egg and cheese makes the perfect fluffy waffles that have a slightly crunchy and cheese exterior.
This recipe isn’t for traditional chaffle. This is a twist on the chaffle, so depending on how strict of a dieter you are, this may not work for you. Check out the simple ingredients and macronutrients listed below and see if it works for you!

White Wonder Bread Keto Chaffle Recipe
- 3 Tbsp. almond flour or coconut flour
- 1 whole egg
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
- 1 tsp. water
- Pinch of salt
For this recipe, you will need a waffle iron. I bought this one for less than $20 on Amazon and love it. Another popular option is this Dash mini waffle maker on Amazon for $25. When you’re not making keto waffles, you can enjoy regular mini waffles with this one too! (These are affiliate links.)
1. In a bowl, whisk the egg until it is beaten.
2. Add the almond flour, mayonnaise, baking powder, and water.
3. Once your waffle iron gets hot, spray it with cooking spray.
4. Add half of your batter to the waffle iron and close it.
5. Your chaffle will be done once it stops steaming, but you can leave it on longer if you want a crispy chaffle.
6. Carefully remove the chaffle from the waffle maker and set it aside for a couple of minutes to cool and crisp.
7. Repeat this process with the rest of the batter for additional chaffles.
Cooking Tip: To reduce the eggy taste, remove the egg yolk and only use the egg whites.
Want to make the chaffle sweeter? Just add 1Tbsp. of sweetener and cinnamon to the recipe.
You can also make this recipe in a microwave. First, mix all of your ingredients together in a small bowl and pour them into a microwave-safe mug. Then, microwave the ingredients for 90 seconds.
After letting it cool down, you can cut the chaffle into two parts like sandwich bread, spread some butter, peanut butter, or sour cream on it, and enjoy it as breakfast sandwiches! You can even turn this into a garlic bread chaffle with the right spread or throw on your favorite cold cuts to make delicious white bread chaffle sandwiches in different ways.
