Keto avocado toast is given a twist with an avocado on low carb chaffle. It makes a delicious low carb and gluten-free start to the day and is quick and easy too.
If you are a lover of avocado toast, chaffles or avocado, then this keto diet 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.
An avocado on chaffle is a delicious and easy-to-make option for anyone looking for a healthy and satisfying meal or snack. You can add other toppings such as a fried egg, sliced tomatoes or sauteed mushrooms to this low-carb avocado toast recipe.
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.
A popular chaffle maker is the Dash Mini Waffle maker which is cute if you want the circular chaffle shape. Whether you use a traditional waffle maker or a Dash maker does not really make any difference to this keto avocado toast recipe as it tastes the same!
This is an easy recipe with just a few ingredients to make the chaffle and the avocado topping.
- Mozzarella cheese - Cheddar cheese can also be used.
- Almond flour - Other low carb flours such as coconut flour, lupin flour or oat fiber could be used, but the volume would need to be adjusted.
- Avocado - Ensure that you select ripe avocados. It should yield to gently pressure and feel slightly soft.
