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!

Easy Low Carb Savoury Scones

Easy Low Carb Savoury Scones

Easy Low Carb Savoury Scones Recipe

These days I spend experimenting with low carb bread recipes. So, that’s how this easy low carb and I might add keto friendly savoury scones are born.

I dearly miss bread, so I had to come with something to satisfy my bread cravings. When I just started with Keto, I was definitely doing a clean version, but two months into it I switched to more of a dirty keto diet.

Now, full 5 months into it, I am still doing intermittent fasting, and eat low carb but not as restricted. I must say that I do feel good!

So, I am planning to continue with this lifestyle because it helped it in so many ways. Not only that I lost weight, but my sleep improved, mood, skin, hormones, etc. Also, got so much more energy. When I say that I feel good, I really do.

Easy Low Carb Savoury Scones Recipe

I tested so many low carb bread recipes. Some were pretty successful like these Low Carb Savoury Scones, as well as Keto bread and mini keto bagels.

I am planning in the near future play with the low carb tortillas because why not, right? All I need is a tortilla press and I am good to go. There is always something that I need. It is not even a joke.

Anyhow, I hope you guys like these scones. I am trying to add nutritional information under each recipe, BUT it will take some time since I am doing it manually. Well, there is no other way.

Easy Low Carb Savoury Scones

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

These days I spend experimenting with low carb bread recipes. So, that's how this easy low carb and I might add keto friendly savoury scones are born.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams of Almond Flour, Flour Bob's Red Mill, 2 cups
  • 80 grams Flaxseeds Flour, Organic Flax Plus, approx. 3/4 cup
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2 Organic Whole Raw Eggs
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 4 tablespoons Irish Butter Unsalted, Kerrygold

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F/190 C and line your baking pan with parchment paper or Silicone non-sticking baking mat.
  2. Add salt, baking powder and baking soda to the almond flour and flaxseed meal, then mix it. 
  3. Add all the other ingredients and mix until everything is well combined. If you are doing low carb, especially Keto measures your ingredients.
  4. Oil or water your hands and make equal size dough patties, about 1/4 inch thick. Note that oiling or making your hands a bit wet will be easier to form these scones.
  5. Bake the scones for about 20 minutes. Serve warm!

Notes

After they are cooled down you may place them in the airtight container with the fitted lid and keep in the fridge. You may also heat these scones or toast before eating.

I make 6 because higher calories support my diet, but it can be easily adjusted to 8.

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

When it comes to easy meals Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash could not be easier. It does take a bit more time to complete it, but nothing hard at all. I promise! 

My family actually really enjoyed eating spaghetti squash. It is low carb, and keto-friendly, which we prefer.

Well, my family did make a little fun of me because it seems that I can’t stop talking about the Ketogenic diet.

Simple, delicious and low-carb meal

However, when they went on it I was laughing at them because they could not stop taking either. Keto is magical and pretty much the only diet that worked for me.

Jokes on the side, I loved preparing this one so much. Well, I could never think that the spaghetti squash tasted this good.

I mean, it is a squash and I was never a huge fan of it until I tried this one. To be honest, I only loved the oven-roasted squash drizzled with some maple syrup. Maybe, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.

I am talking about regular squash like butternut, but this one is savory and absolutely delightful.

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

My amazing friend, Andrea, of @nashvillemade on Instagram, told me to slice it this way and I never looked back again. It is just fantastic!

I know that many people slicing it in half and you can do that but the roasting time takes far more time and this way looks more like portion size and cooks faster.

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash
Yield: 4 Servings

Ground Beef Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Simple low carb meal idea.

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Size Spaghetti Squash
  • Generous Pinch of Salt and Ground Black Pepper
  • A drizzle of Olive Oil

STUFFING

  • 1/2 tablespoon Organic Ghee
  • 1 pack Tennessee Pride Country Sausage No casting
  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • 2 Oz Cheddar Cheese (Per Squash Circle)
  • 1 oz Swiss Cheese, or any other on hand (Per Squash Circle)
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper or to taste

Vegetable options:

  • 1 Red Pepper sauteed
  • 2 cup Broccoli Florets blanched or sauteed
  • Salt and Pepper to taste*

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Heat the whole Spaghetti Squash in the microwave, if available, for 30 seconds to 1 minute. This way it is easier to slice it, however, it is not neccecery. You can just use a really sharp knife. Once sliced into about 2 inch thick slices, scoop out the seeds.
  3. Season spaghetti squash with salt and pepper, then drizzle a bit of olive oil.
  4. Place the squash in the single layer, and roast for about 25-30 minutes. The squash is done when you can easily insert a fork into the flesh and shred the flesh into spaghetti-like strands.
  5. While waiting for the Spaghetti Squash to be baked or roasted, saute the meat; sausage and ground beef.
  6. Heat the skillet to medium-high heat and add ghee to melt.
  7. Saute Sausage and Ground beef, and add seasoning; salt, pepper, and onion powder. Cook until the meat is completely cooked through, for about 10 minutes.
  8. Pull the spaghetti squash out of the oven and shred the flesh into spaghetti-like strands.
  9. Add meat stuffing on top of the spaghetti-like strands, add cheese, shredded or slice it yourself, and place it back to the oven for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.
  10. Meanwhile, saute or blanch vegetable/s of your choice. I used broccoli and red peppers to add a bit of natural sweetness, but you may use any on hand.
  11. Serve vegetables over the stuffed spaghetti squash and enjoy!

Notes

You can use any meat that you prefer or have. I used sausage and ground beef and it was delicious, but you may switch and use chicken and bacon, or just chicken. Even ground turkey would work.

In the case of vegetables, you can use whatever vegetables you wish. I loved this combo, especially red peppers for some natural sweetness to balance it out.
