Hi , everyone .
It's Maya from wholesome yum dot com .
And today I'm showing you how to make chapels .
This has been one of the most popular recipes on my website for a few years now .
And I'm so excited to show you all the different chapel recipe flavors you can make .
But first , what's the chapel ?
If you haven't heard of these before ?
The word chapels is a combination of cheese and waffles , cheese , waffles .
E equals chapels .
It sounds like a , a bit of an unusual combination .
But the addition of cheese in there makes the exterior super crispy without adding carbs and you won't taste the cheese in there in the sweet versions .
While in the savory versions , it adds just the right flavor and these are very easy to make .
In fact , the only basic ingredients you need for chapels are eggs and cheese .
But I find that using only those ingredients makes them taste little eggy .
So I'll show you the other ingredients I add to my chapels .
They're super simple to make them taste even better and have a better texture .
So I'm going to show you how to make basic chapels first .
They're super neutral in flavor , almost like a bread .
Perfect for sandwiches , so many other things .
And after that , I'm gonna show you four more flavors of Chapels .
Sweet and savory to fulfill any craving .
Let's do this .
The first version we're making is plain Chapel .
These are great for sandwiches because they're very bread .
Like some people call them Wonder Bread .
I'm going to be using this mini waffle maker for all the chaffle recipes .
I'll link it down below .
Each batch will make 2 to 3 .
If you use a regular sized waffle maker , you'll just make one chaffle per batch in a medium bowl .
We're going to mix up half a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese , two tablespoons of wholesome yum blanched almond flour or you could use two teaspoons of coconut flour instead and half a teaspoon of psyllium husk powder .
This is going to give the bread like chapels a chewy texture .
Don't skip it .
It makes a big difference and a quarter teaspoon of baking powder .
This is optional but highly recommended .
And finally one large egg , go ahead and crack it directly into the bowl .
You don't have to whisk it separately and then we're just going to stir this all together .
The batter is going to be kind of thick .
This is totally normal .
Make sure the waffle iron is preheated and then go ahead and use a quarter cup measuring cup to fill that up just like this and then transfer that to your waffle iron because the batter is so thick , it's best to spread it out in the waffle maker .
And then you can just close that first you're going to see steam coming out and then when the steam is no longer coming out , that's how , you know your chapels are done .
These are ready .
Look how crispy these are .
This is one of the crispies chapel recipes of all the ones I'm going to show you .
So now I'm gonna go ahead and make a sandwich with this because this is delicious for sandwiches .
Although they are good plain , they're also great with a jam or a nut butter .
Really endless possibilities .
You can use this any way that you would normally use bread .
So I spread a little mayo on there and then I'm gonna put on a couple of lettuce leaves and a few tomato slices and some turkey because turkey sandwiches are the best .
Try a chaffle turkey sandwich and tell me what you think of this one .
Look at that .
That looks just perfect .
I can't wait to try this .
Uh This makes the best lunch next up .
We have garlic Parmesan Chapel .
If you love garlic bread , you're going to love these .
Start with a medium bowl and we're going to add half a cup of shredded mozzarella just like the plain ones and a third of a cup of grated Parmesan cheese .
This is why you don't need any specialty flowers for this recipe .
The Parmesan is a great stand in for that in this case .
And I've added a clove of minced garlic , half a teaspoon of Italian seasoning a quarter teaspoon of baking powder .
And finally a large egg stir all those ingredients together until it's nice and uniform time to load up that waffle maker , fill up that quarter cup measuring cup .
This is how you know that it's the right amount and transfer that to the waffle maker .
By the way , I showed you the steam in the plain Chappel recipe last time .
But another guideline to use is it takes about 3 to 4 minutes to cook a chaffle .
So this one is done and I'm gonna transfer it to a plate and now I'm going to show you how I top these .
You don't have to do this , but highly recommend this makes it really , really feel like garlic bread .
So I'm adding a little bit of shredded mozzarella and then I'm gonna go ahead and melt that you can melt in the microwave or pop this in the oven for a couple of minutes either way .
And I love a little Sprinkle of parsley at the end .
Let me cut this in half and show you what this looks like inside .
Look at that cheese pull and it's really bready inside .
So good , just like garlic bread .
Now , we're making pumpkin Chapel .
If you like pumpkin baked goods , breads , muffins cakes , whatever you're going to love these to make the batter for this one .
We're going to start by melting half an ounce of cream cheese .
That's about one tablespoon and melting .
It is going to make it easier to stir into the batter .
So go ahead and melt that and then it into the medium bowl .
Now I'm adding half a teaspoon of vanilla extract .
This is optional but highly recommended and three teaspoons , which is one tablespoon of wholesome yum coconut flour .
You could also use three tablespoons of almond flour here instead .
But I find that the coconut flour really helps absorb the moisture from the pumpkin that we're adding later .
And I'm adding a quarter teaspoon of baking powder and two tablespoons of vesti sweetener .
This is gonna give us the best texture and no aftertaste .
Highly recommend it for all my sweet chapel recipes .
I've also added half a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice .
You could just use cinnamon if you prefer , but I love the pumpkin flavor and of course two tablespoons of pumpkin puree .
And I'm adding half a cup of shredded mozzarella here as well .
That's gonna help get these crispy and a large egg stir this all together until it's nice and uniform .
You'll notice this batter is a little thinner than the ones we've made so far , which is totally normal .
But we do want to let it sit for a couple of minutes to thicken because that's what you want to do with most coconut flour batters .
Now , we can scoop this up and add it to the waffle maker .
This recipe is going to make three chaffle .
You'll notice that there's a little bit more batter on this one than the other one .
Go ahead and spread the batter around in the waffle maker .
And then we're going to cook as usual 3 to 4 minutes until the steam is no longer coming out .
Sometimes you may need to use an oven mitt if you're making multiple chapels and the waffle iron starts to get hot .
So I had to remove this with a fork .
It's going to be a little bit less crispy than the other ones that we've made so far .
This is totally normal , but it will crisp up as it cools and this is a must .
I'm adding some wholesome yum Keto maple syrup on top .
This is delicious on top of pumpkin Chapel and a little sugar free whipped cream as well .
I'll link the recipe for the whipped cream and the maple syrup down below and a little Sprinkle of cinnamon .
Let me try this .
Uh just perfect .
Feels like fall on a plate .
I've shown you a plain chaffle recipe .
I've shown you a savory one .
I've shown you a sweet one .
Now it's time for another savory one .
This one tastes just like a jalapeno pepper in waffle form .
We're going to start by melting the cream cheese .
This is an ounce of cream cheese or two tablespoons .
This is similar to the way we did the pumpkin once to start and we're going to add that to our medium bowl .
And now I'm adding a quarter teaspoon of baking powder and half a tablespoon of finely minced jalapenos .
Remove the seeds if you don't want them super spicy or leave them in if you want more kick .
And I'm adding two tablespoons of chopped bacon or bacon bits .
I'll give you some ways to cook bacon quickly down below .
And I'm adding one cup of cheddar cheese .
This is more cheese than we did for the other recipes because this one also does not have any flour .
And I've added one large egg and we're gonna stir that together .
Go ahead and put that in your quarter cup measuring cup and add it to the waffle iron .
This looks so cheesy already let it cook for 3 to 4 minutes until it's nice and golden .
And then you can transfer it to a plate and I'll show you how I garnish this one .
Add a little shredded cheese on top .
Go ahead and melt that similar to how we did for the garlic parmesan .
But I also like to add a couple of jalapeno slices on top before melting and finally sprinkled with a few green onions for garnish .
Doesn't this look so pretty ?
If you like , you can even Sprinkle some chopped bacon on top as well .
Time to try it .
It's so gooey and cheesy .
Oh my goodness .
You guys yum .
Just delicious .
The final keto chaffle recipe .
I'm going to show you is cinnamon sugar , not real sugar or also known as churro .
These taste just like churros .
Let me show you to mix up the batter for this one .
We're going to start with two tablespoons of wholesome yum blenched almond flour .
Again , you can substitute this with two teaspoons of wholesome yum coconut flour instead .
And we're adding 1.5 tablespoons of Besty Monk Fruit .
All Los blend .
Again , this is gonna give us the best sweetness , the best flavor and 1.5 tablespoons of Bestie Monk fruit all blend because we want these sweet with no aftertaste .
I'm also adding half a teaspoon of wholesome yum psyllium plus powder .
This is optional , but again , I highly recommend it for the texture in me .
And here's half a teaspoon of cinnamon , large egg just so you know , you can really add the ingredients in any order you like .
You'll notice I kind of go out a quarter in these and this one is getting a three quarter cup of shredded mozzarella cheese .
A bit more than some of the other ones and half a teaspoon of vanilla extract .
Last one , half a tablespoon of melted butter , go ahead and stir that all together until it's nice and uniform .
This batter is going to be a little thinner , that's totally normal .
But if you decided to use coconut flour .
You'll want it to sit for a little bit like we did for the pumpkin ones .
Let those cook for a few minutes .
And you'll notice that these come out softer than the other chapel recipes .
That's totally normal , but they do crisp up more as they cool .
So , don't worry about it if it comes out a little floppy at first while you're waiting for that to cool , you can go ahead and make the coating .
We're going to combine a quarter cup of vesti sweetener and three quarter teaspoon of cinnamon .
And now I'm going to melt a tablespoon of butter and we're gonna brush that onto the chop .
This is going to help the coating stick , flip that over and brush on the other side .
You can do both chaffle at once or you can start with one .
It's best to do this fresh because the coating does tend to get soggy instead of crispy .
If you don't eat it right away , the only coat what you're going to eat right away , place the chapel into the coating and then just flip it over until it's coated on both sides .
Now , you can enjoy this chaffle just as it is , but I like to cut it into strips for of a more authentic churro experience .
I have some sugar free melted chocolate here , I'll link the chocolate chips .
I melt for this down below .
So now you can dip the churro sticks into the melted chocolate if you like .
I also have a chocolate sauce that's very similar but not just plain chocolate chips .
It's a little thinner down below .
I'll link that for you .
But let me go ahead and try this uh just like a churro .
I love all five of these chop recipes .
It's so hard to pick a favorite .
But what they do all have in common is they are all crispy .
They are all delicious and they are all so easy to make .
If you make one of these , leave me a comment .
Let me know which one you made or if you made more than one , which one was your favorite ?
