Wonder Bread Chaffle Recipe: Keto, Gluten Free, Low Carb

This keto wonder bread chaffle recipe has the soft texture of classic wonder bread! It is so quick and easy to make and is naturally gluten free and low carb. Make a big batch to freeze, or whip some up quick when you need a slice of bread.

Chaffles, or cheesy waffles, have taken the keto community by storm. And for good reason!

(have you tried my 2 ingredient chaffle yet??)

If you’re on a low carb diet or just looking for a great gluten free recipe, this wonder bread chaffle recipe is the best thing since sliced bread! (see what I did there?)

It is ridiculously easy to make in your Dash mini waffle maker with 4 simple ingredients you probably already have on hand and is soft and fluffy like Wonder Bread.

You’ll have to make it to believe it, but these waffles are magically low carb (only 2 net carbs per waffle), keto, gluten free, and packed with protein and other nutrients!

One thing I love about this recipe is there are so many different ways you can enjoy it. Scroll down instead of skipping to the recipe card to see all my ideas!

A hand is pictured folding a soft waffle in half, it does not crack.

Spoiler alert: This keto waffle recipe is magic. Mix 4 ingredients together (plus water), pour it into a waffle iron, and BAM, you have a beautifully soft, bendable waffle that can be served as-is or used as bread in your favorite sandwich.

If you’re looking for a crispy chaffle, you’re in the wrong place. Unlike a traditional chaffle, this white bread keto chaffle recipe has a light flavor and fluffy texture similar to the bread it is named after.

Have I mentioned that this recipe is ridiculoulsy easy?? I love easy! If you’re looking for easy dinner ideas, I’ve been wanting to try this keto beef & broccoli and can’t wait to add it to my menu.

Wonder Bread Chaffle Recipe Ingredients

Traditional chaffles are made with eggs and shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese and have more of an eggy taste, but this chaffle bread is soft and bendy and tastes like white bread tastes. There are a few different variations, but here’s what you’ll need for this one:

Egg

Use large eggs. I haven’t tried using an egg substitute, but if you do please let me know how it goes in the comments! Some people like to use 2 egg whites in place of a whole egg, but I just use a regular egg.

Almond Flour

I used Blue Diamond almond flour I bought at Costco because it is cheapest that way, but you can use any almond flour you find in grocery stores or online (if you’re gluten free, be sure to read the label closely as some have a may contain statement)

Expert Tip: Almond flour can quickly go rancid, so store in a cool, dry place for short periods of time. If you know it will take you a while to use it, pop it in the freezer. Just make sure you bring to room temperature before using it in any recipe.

Expert Tip: Sometimes almond flour will get lumpy. Give it a quick stir with a spoon or whisk before measuring to avoid lumps in your batter.

Mayonnaise

Any kind of mayonnaise should work, but I recommend using full-fat mayonnaise for the best flavor and texture (and this is necessary if you’re sticking to a keto diet). If you want, you can swap full-fat sour cream for the mayo.

Baking Powder

Water

Sweetener optional

If you’re using this wonder bread chaffle recipe to make breakfast waffles, you may want to add a little sweetener. Use a keto option such as monk fruit or stevia to keep the carbs down, or feel free to use regular sugar if that fits into your dietary needs and preferences.

HOW TO MAKE WONDER BREAD CHAFFLES

This is such an easy recipe! Toss all the ingredients into a small bowl, give it a good whisk (just until it’s smooth), and cook in a mini waffle iron.

Expert Tip: You can double or triple the recipe to make enough for a large family if needed.

Expert Tip 2: I do not recommend using a Belgium waffle maker for this recipe, for best results use a Dash waffle maker.

Expert Tip 3: Depending on the condition of your waffle maker, you might need to use a little cooking spray between batches to keep the batter from sticking.

I’m so excited for you to try this keto wonder bread recipe, it is the closest thing to a slice of white bread!

WAYS TO SERVE WONDER BREAD CHAFFLES

You can essentially use this recipe any way you would use regular bread. Here are a few of the ways we have enjoyed it:

Make Breakfast Sandwiches

Top with strips of bacon and eggs (fixed however you like) for a tasty and filling breakfast.

Use as Burger Buns

Top with your favorite burger or BBQ meat! Also works for hot dogs.

Serve as a Traditional Waffle

If you’re using this wonder bread chaffle recipe to make breakfast waffles and have a sweet tooth, you may want to add a little sweetener. Use a keto 1:1 sugar substitute such as monk fruit or stevia to keep the carbs down, or feel free to use regular sugar if that fits into your dietary needs and preferences.

Unlike traditional waffles, this cheeseless chaffle won’t cause a blood sugar spike and will keep you full until lunch time! Serve with sugar free syrup or whatever toppings you like.

Whipped cream is a favorite waffle topping at our house and last year a good friend gifted me this whipped cream dispenser and we now make our own whipped cream with it all the time! It is so easy and always the perfect texture.

Use In Any Kind of Sandwich

Top with your favorite cold cuts and cheeses, fill with tuna salad, or make a classic peanut butter and jelly!

Use as a Pizza Crust

Top a delicious white bread chaffle with your favorite pizza sauce and toppings. Pop in the toaster oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese and serve! For a delicious dessert to finish off your dinner, try this keto flan from LSL.

If you don’t have a toaster oven, you can use a traditional oven heated to 350 degrees F.

HOW TO STORE WONDER BREAD CHAFFLES

This keto wonder bread recipe is great for meal prep. While these are best served fresh out of the waffle iron, you can easily store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag in the fridge for a day or two.

If you want to freeze for longer, arrange the chaffle bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze fully. You can them remove to a freezer bag and freeze for up to a month. Be sure to press out any excess air.
