Avocado on chaffle is the new avocado on toast! It makes a delicious low carb start to the day and is quick and easy too.
If you are a lover of avocado toast, chaffles or avocado, then this recipe is sure to hit the spot. Avocado toast can be made low carb by using a slice of low carb bread but here a chaffle is used in place of bread.
WHAT IS A CHAFFLE?
The low carb love affair with chaffle continues. They are an easy and quick alternative to bread. The basic ingredients for a chaffle are shredded mozzarella and egg. Add a couple of tablespoons of low carb flour such as almond or coconut flour and cook the mixture in a waffle maker. It really is just that simple.
WHAT WAFFLE MAKER TO USE?
A popular waffle maker for chaffles is the Dash waffle maker which makes a small circular chaffle but I use a basic Belgian Waffle maker which makes a rectangle shape. If you are not hung up on what shape your chaffle is, it doesn’t matter what waffle maker you use.

OTHER CHAFFLE RECIPES TO TRY
Avocado on Chaffle
- 1 medium egg
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese grated
- 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 1 avocado ripe
- ½ teaspoon lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Lightly grease the waffle maker (I give it a light spray with olive oil) and turn it on to heat up.
- In a bowl add the mozzarella, egg and almond flour. Mix well.
- Spoon the batter into your waffle maker. If you are using a small waffle maker spoon half the mixture in at a time. Gently spread it out towards the edges.
- Close the lid and cook for 5 minutes.
- Whilst the chaffle is cooking make the avocado topping. You can serve the avocado either sliced or mashed.
- If you are serving mashed: Remove the pit from the avocado, scoop out the flesh and place in a bowl. Mash with a fork and mix it the lemon juice, salt and pepper.
- If you are serving sliced: Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit from the avocado. Carefully scoop out the avocado halves with a large spoon and place on a cutting board. Slice the avocado and sprinkle with the lemon juice, salt and pepper.
- Using tongs, remove the cooked chaffle and place on serving plate.
- Spread the avocado mash on top of the chaffle or place the avocado slices in a fan shape and eat immediately.
