  1. These are soo amazing! They actually taste just like a McGriddle! I was not expecting it to be this good?

  2. Sorry, but these were the worst chaffles I’ve made. Followed directions exactly, but they were super greasy and so floppy/spongy that I had to eat them with a fork. Tasted like a cheese omelet, to point that I even threw out the second one to save macros for the day.

      Sorry to hear you didn’t like them Linda. These chaffles are meant to be soft just like real McGriddles, but sounds like yours came out too soft. If you don’t mind sharing, what kind of keto maple syrup did you use?

  3. Genevieve Eisan

    These came out pretty dang good! I let them sit on a cooling rack for 5 minutes and they firmed up enough for perfect McGriddle sandwiches! I wound up having to make my husband and 23 and 18 year old sons their own as well. Big hit with the whole family even though I am the only keto follower!

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hello Genevieve! So glad you liked it and it’s always a great compliment to hear when everyone in the family enjoyed the recipe!

  4. Yvette Hegler

    Just tried these and mine came out very soft and made a huge mess oozing out of the dash but I’m wondering if using pre shredded cheese is better than shredding it from a block? I also used a store bought sugar free syrup.. my grands kids liked then but I need to try with pre shredded bag cheese next time.

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hello Yvette – using block vs per-shredded could have an affect, but can’t say for certain since we only made it the way listed on the recipe. As for the overflow, maybe using less batter will help since the chaffle will expand under heat. Also, it’s important that the waffle iron is preheated before pouring the batter. Hope it turns out better for you next time.

    • The KetoTwins always use LOW MOISTURE MOZZARELLA cheese.
      SERIOUS Keto likes ChocZero syrup but it’s not available in my area so I’ll experiment with the recipe to create something real close.

  5. Absolutely delicious 😋

  6. I have been craving a McGridle and this was perfect! Thank you for the reciepe. They turned out perfect!

  7. I let it stay in my dash for 6 minutes. Make sure your tablespoons are not heaping. turned out just right for me.
