What are Chaffles?
Chaffles are a low carb alternative to bread, waffles, and tortillas. You can make them taste like anything! Simply put a chaffle is a waffle made with egg and cheese. Now from the basic chaffle recipe you can make MANY different varieties of chaffles just changing up the type of cheese that you use, including this dessert chaffle recipe.

Do Strawberry shortcake chaffles taste eggy?
It required quite a bit of trial and error for me to get my strawberry shorttcake chaffles to NOT taste like scrambled eggs with cheese. Adding in the almond flour, baking powder, and cinnamon helps tremendously and you end up with the perfectly sweet but not overly sweet strawberry shortcake chaffle.
