Learn how to make a chaffle bowl for a fun low carb meal prep! This easy keto chaffle bread bowl is great for salads, breakfast bowls, and more!
Chaffles are the perfect easy keto snack–I love using a basic chaffle in place of a bun for a delicious keto burger or topping one with chili for Chili Cheese Chaffles! The versatility and ease make keto so easy.
I make these using the Dash Mini Waffle Maker, but I saw something so neat in the store, I decided to try it… The Dash Mini Waffle Bowl Maker! This makes a cute little chaffle bread bowl that you can fill with all sorts of things. It’s still just as easy as making a normal chaffle, too. Just pour the batter in, let it cook for 3-4 minutes, and you know it’s done when there’s no more steam coming out of the machine!
Chaffle Bowl Ingredients
Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll need. For specific measurements, keep scrolling to the printable recipe card.
- Shredded cheese (any variety or mixture)
- Almond flour
- Baking powder
Do I have to use almond flour and baking powder in my chaffle bowl?
Yes. While many people make basic chaffles using just cheese and egg, I always prefer to add almond flour and baking powder for the texture. This makes them feel and taste more like real waffles, and they hold up better. If you left the almond flour and baking powder out of this recipe, I cannot imagine your bowls would actually hold up with any fillings you put inside them.
How to make a Chaffle Bowl
I used the same process to make these chaffle bowls as I did with chaffles. First, you’ll combine the eggs, shredded cheese, almond flour, and baking powder in a small bowl and mix well.
Preheat your waffle bowl maker according to the directions and lightly spray with cooking oil if necessary. Spoon just 2 tablespoons of batter into the waffle maker. Cook 3-4 minutes until steam is no longer coming from the machine, then remove and repeat with remaining batter.
Make sure to not overfill your waffle bowl maker! The batter will spill out causing a huge mess.
Can I make chaffle bowls ahead of time?
Yes, these are perfect for low carb meal prep! You can mix up the batter and store it in an airtight container up to 48 hours in the fridge. You can even make your chaffle bowls ahead of time, store those in the fridge for up to 4 days, and then toast or air fry them later to crisp them up!
I’ve not yet tried to freeze these, but I do imagine it would work well since chaffles freeze and reheat wonderfully.
How should I use a chaffle bowl?
These could be so versatile! Keep in mind, these are very small… They hold about a 1/2 cup of fillings. This is great for portion control, party appetizers, side dishes, and more.
I’ve served these for breakfast with scrambled eggs, ham, and cheese in my Breakfast Chaffle Bowls. They also worked great in this Keto Salad Bowl!
