Chaffles – Low Carb Keto Waffles

Chaffles - Low Carb Keto Waffles

If you are following a low carb lifestyle, then you probably heard of or made these yummy keto-approved waffles.

What are Chaffles-Low Carb Keto Waffles?

I know, by the name you would never tell what it is. I have no idea who gave the name. So Chaffles are waffles made with only shredded cheese and eggs.

You can add different herbs to enchant the flavor, but that is pretty much it. For the best results, I would have to suggest shredding the cheese yourself.

Chaffles - Low Carb Keto Waffles

You will still have marvelous waffles using pre-shredded cheese, but if you do it yourself it is honestly so much better.

I love making these when I am craving a good sandwich, or when I want to pack my kids a low carb lunch. Above all, they are just so tasty and easy to make, plus you only need 2 ingredients which most of us have in our fridge.

It is so easy to upgrade them like add a bit of almond flour, dash of sugar and vanilla to create a tasty low carb sweet waffles.

Although I prefer these savory over sweet because I’ve seen them and I really do not like the idea.

With that being said I have been testing other keto recipes that are full proof and absolutely amazing. I just don’t know which one to post, chocolate or regular. Ahh! Sweet decisions.

I used my regular size waffle maker, which is just fine. I believe any waffle maker would do. My kids really loved these and my husband asked for more.

Well, what’s not to like right? As my daughter, Anna, would say, it is a cheesy omelet made in a waffle form. Oh, and so delightful that I am so sure that you guys going to love.

So this is pretty basic keto breakfast or brunch. Bacon, eggs, and cheese. I should’ve made a few sunny side eggs ’cause I would love it with this. However, this was absolutely perfect.

I served it with some sour cream and just for the presentation, I added crumbles of feta cheese. It just looked like it belonged there.

Wouldn’t you agree? I just loved this plate so much. It hit the spot!

Did you guys ever make Chaffles? Please share it with me in the comments.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

You cannot get a meal more simple than these Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats. Yes, it does take some time until the squash is cooked but that is pretty much it.

My husband and I devoured this one. Even though I did not use the largest spaghetti squash, we could not finish it so I say one of these serves four people. Especially if you serve it with salad or some type of bread.

We do not consume bread as before and still, this was a pretty satisfying lunch or dinner.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash Boats

Now, there are a couple of things that you can add like sauteed peppers, celery or addition or onion.

You can chop everything and just sautee before adding meat to the pan. Also, you may like your own tomato or Italian sauce. It is totally versatile and you can use whatever you wish to add.

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Yield: Serves 4

Beef and Sauce Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Spaghetti Squash 2 to 3 pounds
  • 1 generous Pinch Salt and Black Ground Pepper
  • 1 drizzle Olive Oil

STUFFING

  • 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 pound Ground Beef 80/20 or whatever you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder you can saute 1/4 of medium chopped onion instead.
  • 1 pinch Salt and ground black pepper each or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herbs, Blend
  • 1 1/2 cup Pasta Sauce any sauce that you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley for garnish
  • 1/4 pound Cheese, freshly sliced of shredded mozzarella, provolone, or mild cheddar cheese works

Instructions

  1. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop the seeds out using a spoon. Place squash, cut side down, in a baking dish. Fill pan with hot water to a depth of 1/2 in. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes or until tender. I use a knife or a fork to punch through on the side of the bowl. If tender the squash is done. Remove all the water out of not evaporated, then turn the squash halves on the other side.Add a pinch of Salt and pepper in each just to season it, drizzle with a drizzle of olive oil and allow it to roast for an additional 10-15 minutes at 375F.
  2. Meanwhile, make a beef sauce by sauteeing ground beef. Remove excess grease if you wish before adding spices and seasoning. To the ground beef add onion powder, Italian herb blend, salt, and pepper to taste. When the meat is cooked and not bloody add about 1 1/2 cup Sauce. I used Beef flavored sauce.
  3. When the squash is cooked and cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape the squash making squash spaghetti stand.
  4. On the top of spaghetti squash add an equal amount of beef sauce on top, using fork mix it a bit coating spaghetti squash with the sauce, then add cheese. You can also take the spaghetti squash out completely and layer it like lasagna (sauce, squash, cheese, etc.) using skin as a bowl, but I prefer it this way.
  5. Place it back in the oven and bake uncovered, at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.Enjoy!

Notes

You may use ground, minced or diced chicken bites for this recipe.

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Simple, delicious and low-carb meal. It is Keto Friendly and very delicious.

When it comes to easy meals this one could not be easier. It does take a bit more time to complete it, but nothing hard at all.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Easy, Delicious, Mini Keto Everything Bagels.

Let’s just make something clear here… These are not, and I repeat precisely, these are not your traditional bagels. Now that I got that off my chest, let me continue.

When I started this Keto lifestyle, I missed nothing more than bread. Bread to me is like everything. So, my friends, I made my own bread. I am serious! Click right here.

Check out other bread recipes

With that being said, the other day I was like “man, I wish I had some bagels with this delicious whipped cream cheese” so I made my own.

No, they are not fluffy, sink gracefully your teeth into the doughy deliciousness, but they do their outstanding job.

Which is replacing or better said substituting the original and hitting the spot at the same time.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

I set myself a goal that I will do this Keto thing for 15 days, then extended to a month, now I have changed my mind yet again and I will go to 3 months.

Willingly allowing myself every now and then a little cheat day or rather a food item such as apple pie, banana cream pie or a bowl of real mashed potatoes.

Delicious potatoes! Oh, yes! I miss potatoes the most, but cauliflower somewhat replacing it, if I close my eyes and really believe it’s a cheesy potato. haha

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Jokes on the side, so far it has been undoubtedly a really good experience.

These are extremely easy bagels. I got this pan for baked donuts so these bagels are on the mini side; that’s why we can eat two of them per serving. 

You can find two sizes of these pans, so I picked up a larger one. I don’t actually know if anyone selling a full-size bagel pan.

I wish I knew they had them on AMAZON cause it would save me considerable time looking for it.

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Anyhow, I really hope y’all like this one because it literally is saving me not to go back to eating loads of carbs.

Also, I received Pereg ”Everything but the Bagel” Seasoning. In love with it! Usually, I would make my own but I must say it was really tasty. We totally recommend it!

Mini Keto Everything Bagels
Yield: 4 Servings

Mini Keto Everything Bagels

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

Tasty and easy Low Carb bagels.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cage-Free Large Brown Organic Eggs separated
  • 1/8 teaspoon Organic Apple Cider Vinegar Bragg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Super Fine Almond Meal Flour 128g
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons Sour Cream All Natural
  • 3 tablespoons Organic Unsalted Butter room temp
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning

Instructions

  1. Separate egg whites and yolks.
  2. Mix Yolks with Sour cream, butter, and salt; set aside
  3. Mix Egg whites with a drop or two of Apple cider Vinegar.
  4. Combine the two by folding.
  5. To the almond meal add baking soda, mix and fold into the eggs.
  6. Add into “donut” tin, then sprinkle some everything bagel seasoning, if desired.You can use a spoon or piping bag. I used a ziplock bag and it worked just fine to get the batter into the donut cups without a mess. Fill the bag, close, get the air out and then cut the corner with scissors. 
  7. Preheat the oven to 375F and bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

  • You may make bigger bagels. I fill the donut cups 3/4 which gives just enough room for them to rise. They will not rise too much, but baking soda gives them a small amount of sponginess.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is an amazing addition, plus it replaces cream of tartar wonderfully.
  • In regard to almond flour, I measured it in the measuring cup, 1 cup, and then I used my scale which read 128 grams. If you are only on low carb diet than a gram up or down doesn’t make too much difference, but keto is more carb-restricted so just measure.
