Crunchy Savory Keto Zucchini Chaffle

Or maybe I should call this keto zucchini chaffle a Zaffle?

A chaffle is basically a crunchy waffle and they are all the craze right now in the Keto world.

I’ve been making these for my Mom all summer long and I had no idea I was making a Chaffle, until I started reading about it on Facebook!

They are quite delicious and an amazing way to use up zucchini from the garden.

What You Will Need to Make Keto Zucchini Chaffles

  • Eggs
  • Your favorite cheese, grated
  • Fresh grated zucchini
  • chopped onion, garlic,herbs (all optional but I love these with fresh dill!)
  • Dash mini waffle maker or regular non stick waffle maker
  • box grater to grate the zucchini and cheese

Putting Together Keto Chaffles

When you make these keto zucchini chaffles or any other chaffles, the whole idea is that you are making a waffle with a crunchy outer coating.

What makes them a chaffle is the technique of layering the cheese on the waffle maker with the filling in the middle. (See recipe card below for instructions)

But even if you don’t do that part, you can just mix all the cheese into the batter and this still tastes awesome!

Chaffles are perfect for leftovers because they are sturdy enough to be toasted. They also make a delicious sandwich.

But I like eating these keto zucchini chaffles fresh from the waffle maker with some dill and sour cream. YUM!

For instructions on how to make the basic egg and cheese chaffle please see my Basic Keto Chaffle post. These can be used for egg fast, bread and bun substitutes and can be made both sweet and savory!

Keto Zucchini Chaffle Recipe

Yield: 8 mini waffles
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

A savory, crunchy waffle with a cheese crust (also called a chaffle). Easy to make and a delicious way to use up your garden zucchini!


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups grated zucchini (about 1 fresh small zucchini)
  • 1 cup grated cheese (any type)
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • chopped fresh dill (optional but good!)


  1. Preheat mini waffle maker
  2. Whisk eggs in bowl and stir in zucchini, onions,garlic,herbs and most of the cheese. You can reserve some of the cheese to make the crispy coating.
  3. Sprinkle a teaspoon of cheese on waffle maker (optional)
  4. Place 1/4 cup zucchini egg mixture on top of cheese
  5. Sprinkle with 1 tsp grated cheese(optional)
  6. Close lid and cook for about 4-5 minutes or until cheese is crispy
  7. Place on rack to cool.
  8. Repeat with rest of cheese and egg/zucchini mixture until all batter is used up.
  9. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chives and dill


If you have a large Belgian waffle maker such as the full size Dash machine, then you can use all the batter to make 4 large waffles. I prefer mine a little smaller and thinner so I spread half the batter over my waffle maker, cook and then spread the other half to make 8 waffles.

  1. Once I mixed everything together, it got very liquidy. I did add salt, so maybe that was the reason? It made them hard to get out, but they crisped up after sitting on a rack. Everyone loved them, especially with sour cream!

    1. Sometimes you have a zucchini that is super wet, they seem to be all different! Salt definitely draws out moisture and should be added after cooking. If you grate your zucchini and it appears to be very wet either drain it in a collander or on paper towels. Glad you still managed to salvage it!

    1. That depends! The zucchini that I grow seems to be on the drier side and I don’t need to squeeze it or drain it. BUT if you are using previously frozen grated zucchini, that’s another story. Also I have used store bought zucchini and felt it was too wet and drained it. When you are grating it, if you see a lot of moisture, then maybe drain it on some paper towels or something like that to get excess moisture out.

  2. Do you know where one can find a Teflon-free mini waffle maker? There don’t seem to be any on Amazon.

    Thanks so much!

    1. There’s plenty of ceramic and other waffle makers on amazon like these ones, but I don’t think there is a mini one. All Chaffle and waffle recipes for the mini can be made in large waffle makers as well, you just need to adjust the amount of batter going in.

  3. These are so good! Do not leave out the onion and dill. They add such a fabulous extra layer of flavor. I toured them with a solid of sure cream. Yum!
