What Is A Chaffle Made Of?

A traditional chaffle is made out of cheese and egg. People often choose to add some seasoning to give it a little something extra.

Traditional chaffles are sometimes used as a breakfast sandwich bun substitute for those on a keto diet. Although the brown butter chaffle is still keto, there are a few added ingredients.

The added ingredients are what separate a traditional chaffle from a dessert chaffle. Dessert chaffles, such as the brown butter chaffle, contain something a little more sweet.

Dessert chaffles typically have sweetener, coconut flour, and baking powder. Your sweet tooth will be satisfied after a bite, or a plate, of a fresh dessert chaffle.

After you’ve whipped up your brown butter chaffle batter, traditional or dessert, you have the choice of making mini or regular sizes chaffles. You can either throw the batter into a mini waffle maker or a Belgium waffle maker.

This recipe is so easy to make and there are so many liberties that can be taken with it. If your sweet tooth is in control, maybe you want to add a little more sweetener (maybe to just your own and not the kids’).

Whether your family is big or small, this chaffle recipe will work for you. Mini chaffles are perfect for the little ones while the big kids can get the full works.

How Do You Store Chaffles

When it comes to storing chaffles, it gets even easier than making them. To store your chaffles, you just put them in a freezer bag with a bit of parchment paper between them and then put them in the freezer until you are ready to reheat and enjoy them again!


All you have to do to reheat your brown butter chaffles is put them in an air fryer for 2-3 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also use your microwave to defrost them.

If you make more than you need, you won’t have to worry about throwing any out. The easy storage instructions will give your extra chaffles another chance to shine!
