Garlic Bread Chaffles
Chaffles are one of my favorite ways to enjoy keto bread- they’re super satisfying without breaking my keto diet. And since I knew I wanted to make this Spaghetti Squash Lasagna for dinner this week, I thought we would need some garlic bread to go with it! So I made these Keto Garlic Bread Chaffles. These chaffles are SO good- they’re a mix on my Basic Keto Chaffles.
You’re going to take a classic chaffle recipe and heavily season it so you really get an Italian taste. After you make the chaffles, you’re going to add garlic butter and cheese to the top and broil them (or use your Air Fryer) to get these Garlic Bread Chaffles perfectly cheesy and crispy!
These Keto Garlic Bread Chaffles are going to become your next go-to for an Italian night (for awesome dinner ideas, check out these Keto Italian Recipes!). They’re deliciously crispy, buttery and are seasoned perfectly so that you forget you’re eating a keto version of your favorite garlic bread!
Chaffles are a huge part of my keto diet- you can make them sweet or savory, so they’re great for whatever mood you’re in, and these Keto Garlic Bread Chaffles are no exception! You can make these ahead of time and freeze them, so you’ll always have a great low carb garlic bread on hand!

How do I make this Cheesy Garlic Bread recipe?
This easy keto recipe is ready in only 3 simple steps!
- Mix together all of the chaffle ingredients. Melt your butter and combine with the Italian seasoning and garlic powder and set to the side.
- Fill up your warmed mini waffle maker 2/3 full with batter and allow the chaffle to cook until there is no longer steam coming from the waffle iron- about 3-5 minutes. Repeat with the rest of your batter.
- Brush the chaffles with the garlic butter mixture and top with remaining cheese. You can either broil, bake or Air Fryer your chaffles until the cheese is bubbly.
Can I freeze chaffles?
Yes, you can freeze these chaffles, but I would recommend doing so before you add the toppings. So when you go to reheat this recipe, you can warm in any of the ways listed below and then follow the steps to add the cheesy topping. Allow your chaffles to thaw (overnight in the fridge or about 30 minutes on the counter) before warming.
How do you reheat Chaffles?
I don’t recommend warming in the microwave- the chaffles will get soggy. You can warm your chaffles up in the following ways:
- Air Fryer – This is the crispiest way; Heat to 300 degrees F and cook for 3-4 minutes.
- Waffle Maker – Preheat the waffle maker, pop the chaffle in, and close the maker for about a minute.
- Toaster – Just like you would toast bread, place the chaffle in and let it toast for 30 seconds or so.
- Oven/Toaster Oven – Warm oven to 350 degrees F and cook 4-5 minutes.
- Stovetop – Heat a dry pan to medium and cook 1 minute on each side.
Tips for the Best Gluten Free Garlic Bread
- Depending on how you like your garlic bread, you may want to just bake or Air Fry your chaffles instead of broiling them. If you broil them, your cheese will get bubbly and melty- it will also brown up, so if you prefer just bubbly cheese, I wouldn’t recommend broiling.
- Don’t skip the extra step of adding the butter mixture to the chaffle- this gives it a ton of that signature Italian flavor you expect from garlic bread!
- Add fresh herbs for a great topping! Parsley or basil would both be delicious with this keto bread
What should I serve with this Cheesy Garlic Bread?
This keto garlic bread could seriously go with anything. Some of my favorite are this Garlic Butter Chicken and Mushrooms, Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Brussels Sprouts, Zucchini Lasagna or One Pan Lemon Parmesan Chicken. I also think these chaffles would really go well with Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin, Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken or Keto Chicken Parmesan.
