Crunchy Keto Croutons

What do you need for making keto Chaffle Croutons?

Make a minimum of 2 chaffles (I usually make with 4 chaffles because they keep well!)

  • Eggs
  • Fresh grated parmesan (or strong cheese of your choice)
  • Herbs and spices of your choice (I like the garlic and onion flavored croutons)
  • Optional ingredients include a little bit of almond flour, baking powder and those cool bread flavor drops you can buy!
  • If you are already making chaffles then you probably already have the awesome mini waffle maker! I buckled and got myself the full size Dash to save time. I have to say I do love it!


What can you do with Keto Chaffle Croutons?

Last week I made Herbed Garlic Croutons for this Keto Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe

You can use these to make a stuffing for your turkey this year! Imagine that!

Tonight I pulled a handful out of my crouton bag and tossed on my salad (see below)

Pretty much anywhere that you would have used croutons or breadcrumbs in a recipe, you can use these!

  1. I want to make these as I miss croutons on my salads, BUT I have never heard of “bread flavor”?? Is it an extract or something?
