There used to be this bagel shop in my town that sold bagel sticks – basically a bagel breadstick. 

Y’all, those were the best bagels of my life. 

Just me + a bagel stick + a bucket of cream cheese = pure heaven.

These days I avoid the bagels, but when the chaffle train came screeching into the low carb train station (I’ve had too much coffee today and my writing shows it), I instantly thought of an Everything Bagel Chaffle.

Y’all. Y’ALL.

This is life.

How to make keto bagel chaffles:

For the chaffle batter, you’ll need 1 egg, some mozzarella cheese, a little coconut flour, and some Everything Bagel seasoning. <— You can certainly use store-bought seasoning, but my recipe is quick, easy, and perfect!

Whisk together your egg, coconut flour, and seasoning and then stir in your mozzarella.

I really prefer finely shredded cheese in my chaffles, but use what you’ve got. 

Add half of that mixture to your waffle iron and cook for 3 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

Bam. Everything Bagel Chaffles!

If you’re really feeling that bagel vibe, cut the center out of the chaffle with a sharp knife! So simple. 

Of course, it would not be a bagel without a THICK smear of cream cheese. Load ‘er up.

What kind of waffle maker do you need? 

You are going to want a mini waffle maker for this recipe. This size will make 2 bagel-sized waffles.

I use the Dash Mini Waffle Maker

Don’t worry – you can order from Amazon for around $10 and I almost guarantee you won’t regret the purchase!

They’ve been on backorder for a bit due to the overwhelming love of the chaffle, but go ahead and order! I’m hearing from readers that they’re shipping out much sooner than the backorder date!

Dash waffle maker

The Dash heats quickly, cooks quickly, takes up barely any space, and it comes in a variety of cute colors. I have the aqua. 

If you want to make more than 1 mini waffle at a time, check out this one:

If you plan to make chaffles for a family, this should work great! I haven’t tried it myself, but plan to order because my kids are obsessed with chaffles too.

  1. Do you have any nutritional information for Chaffles. It would be nice to know carbs and fiber and calories. Please and thank you.

  2. New on board the chaffle train, but so thankful I found your recipes! I’m obsessed! My favorite part is that your recipes are the perfect portion sizes for me! I had gastric bypass surgery 18 months ago and 2 mini chaffles are a meal for me! I usually can’t even eat quite all of them, but I don’t feel wasteful having to throw a few bites out! I can have some carbs in moderation, but I prefer to just stay away since they were always what got me in trouble! Haha I have many of your other recipes bookmarked to try as well! Looking forward to it!

    1. Karly Campbell

      So glad you found the chaffles! They are one of my favorite low carb discoveries, for sure. 🙂

    Has anyone tried making these with Bob’ Red Mill gluten free flour? I cant wait to try these. I have a belgian waffle maker and figured they could be cut in half to make sandwiches. I am so excited to try. Love your recipes, they all sound so good.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Janice! I haven’t tried it myself, so I can’t say. It’s such a small amount of ingredients though, so I vote you give it a shot! Let us know how it works out! 🙂

  4. How hard is it to clean the mini waffle maker? Can you pop out the inserts and put them in the dishwasher? Thank you!

    1. Karly Campbell

      The inserts don’t come out, but it’s nonstick and I’ve only just wiped it down between uses. No issues whatsoever.

  5. Loved it with avocado on top as one person said, but couldn’t get it as crisp as I wanted. I wonder if putting the cheese in first, then on top will give it the crispiness. Will try that today. So nice to have bagels again.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Sandi! Yes, some people do sprinkle on a bit of cheese before adding the egg mix for extra crunch. 🙂

  6. I’m gonna put a mashed avocado with more everything bagel seasoning on it. I miss my avocado toast since going keto.

  7. Hi Karly
    Regarding the fine shredded mozzarella cheese. Is the 1/2 cup loosely measured or packed in? Could you give me a weight estimate instead?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi there! I don’t have a weight estimate, but the cheese is just loosely measured. You really can’t mess these up.

  8. Christine Stanish

    I just tried the recipe this morning but forgot to add the coconut flour just cause I’m so used to not adding in flour when I make my chaffles, as I haven’t moved past the simple egg and cheese version yet. Was bummed I forgot but they still turned out great! Fantastic substitute for the real thing!! Yummy

    1. Karly Campbell

      I do like the texture better with a bit of flour, but I’m sure they were good without! 🙂

  9. Amanda Busse

    I tried these on my home waffle maker and they were more waffle maker and they were a little puffy. My Dash mini waffle maker just arrived and I cannot wait to make all these chaffle recipes. This was so good and easy. I love this website. Every recipe I have tried has been great!! Thank you!!

  10. Lorraine B

    Dash Mini Waffle Maker also available at Crate & Barrel. Just bought mine and going to make these for today’s breakfast! Yum!

  11. Maggie Martin

    WHAT?????? Everything bagel is my fav…I just got my mini waffle maker. The kids are coming for brunch on Sat and they are getting
    these along with bacon and eggs. Can hardly wait to spring these on them.
    Thanks Karly, have enjoyed every Chaffle recipe you have given us and now with my waffle maker here I am gonna waffle, oops, chaffle the entire next week
    YOU rock girl


  12. Just printed this out so I can make them! “Cut out the middle to make it feel more like a waffle” = Less surface area to smear more cream cheese on Ü I’ll definitely be leaving mine whole for maximum cream cheese storage ♥
    Love your recipes, thanks for sharing!!

    1. Karly Campbell

      Haha! I still smeared a little on the cut out piece and popped it in my mouth. 😉

  13. Michelle Lewis

    I have a mini donut maker, think that will work? I am wondering if this is something that will be good the next day or is it only good fresh?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hey Michelle! I actually almost bought a mini donut maker today to test out chaffles in there. It’s so easy that I vote you give it a try! I can’t imagine they won’t turn out well, but I haven’t tried myself. For waffles, we toast these again the next day to crisp them up. Not sure how you’d reheat donuts though. They’re probably best fresh.

    I just picked up the Dash Mini Waffle maker and the Dash Mini Grill today at Bed, Bath and Beyond using my discount coupons..what a deal! Cannot wait to try them… makes ng this mini bagel the morrow but It’s have a question .. Doesn’t the Mini Waffle Maker need to be sprayed or bushed wit oil of some kind prior to pouring out in the batter and again for each waffle? Also, is there “Everything Spice” readily available in the food stores? Tomorrow I’m going to the market to look for the “Everything” seasoning…also, can I use Low Moisture Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese or must it be full fat if you are lactose intolerant?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Maria! Good find on the waffle maker!

      I sprayed my waffle maker the first time I used it, but haven’t sprayed it since. The Dash is very non-stick. You can find Everything Bagel spice at Walmart and Trader Joe’s…not sure about anywhere else. I believe you could use whichever type of cheese you prefer to make these, but I can’t advise what to use based on lactose intolerance.

    1. Karly Campbell

      You probably can, but depending on the size of your iron you may need more or less batter and it may need to cook longer/shorter.

  15. You are the brains sweets!

    I ordered my Waffle iron in teal, this week, yes. Will get it tomorrow hopefully and in the morning, I’m making Chaffles!!!

    1. Karly Campbell

      It sure would! You can even skip the coconut flour if you like and just do egg and cheese.

    1. Karly Campbell

      I’ve only made these with coconut flour, but almond flour should be fine too.

    2. Just made them and used almond flour in place of coconut flour and they turned out perfect!
