The basic chaffle recipe features just cheese and eggs cooked up in a waffle iron to bring you low carb breakfast bliss, and here’s 10 decadent, diet-friendly variations to celebrate your morning meal.
Can Waffles Be Healthy?
In general, regular waffles tend to be loaded with things that aren’t great for your health. As an integrative medicine physician assistant, I gotta take a minute and unpack this.
White flour and sugar are high in calories and low in vitamins and nutrients. They tend to increase inflammation in the body, spike blood sugar levels, feed cancer and viruses, and may contribute to premature aging, weight gain, and low energy levels.
A chaffle recipe is a low carb, high protein alternative that can offer a healthy waffle recipe alternative. While calorically dense, it is gentle on blood sugar levels, full of protein, and works will with low carb diets.
Chaffles for Trim Healthy Mama Notes
If you follow the Trim Healthy Mama diet (it involves carb cycling– your adrenals and thyroid will thank you!), it’s best to approach delicious Chaffles with a little word of caution. As an integrative medicine physician assistant, I just have to take a minute to share this!
These can be a delightful addition to your celebration days, but chaffles tend to be high in calories (some recipes include 1/2 cup to 1 full cup of cheese per serving). That’s awesome for a holiday, but probably not best for every hectic Monday morning drive to work.
