The Best No-Carb Cloud Bread with Only 4 Ingredients

bantingdiet, wiightloss

I thought what the heck is

Cloud Bread

? Bread with no carbs? I saw this recipe few months ago and with the name like that I knew I had to give it a try. I’m not sure why I waited this long. This Cloud Bread is so soft, airy, fluffy and practically melts in your mouth. It is very delicious home-made bread replacement that is practically carb-free, gluten-free and high in protein.

Kids really loving it too! They are so fooled thinking it is a real bread. But I don’t really make it for them. I started making it for myself because I’m on no-sugar, no-carb eating journey at the moment. Thank god I’m not a sweet person so I never ever crave sugar or cookies, but this Cloud bread is fooling me too. This recipe is making it easy not to crave bread.  It can be consumed in a variety or ways such as hamburger buns, hot or cold sandwich. My favorite way to enjoy my cloud bread is to put a slice of tomato and melted mozzarella on top or with a piece of smoked salmon and cream cheese or with mushed avocados and tomatoes on top. The possibilities for this high-value snack are endless.

Ridiculous Amount of Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 3 Tablespoons cream cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder (or cream of tartar)
  • These ingredients are optional and highly recommended: 1 TBS Brown Sugar (or honey, or your favorite natural sweetener) I like to use

    Coconut Palm Sugar

    because it is low glycemic and adds a subtle sweetness to my baking and is perfect for coffee or tea) Also optional are salt, garlic powder, rosemary and other fave spices/herbs


Directions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 degrees Celsius)
  • Separate the eggs, there must be no yolk in the white.
  • In one bowl, mix together the egg yolks, cream cheese and honey until smooth.
  • In the second bowl add 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder (or cream of tartar if you prefer, I just didn’t like the taste of cream of tartar) to the whites and beat the whites on high speed until they are fluffy, form a nice peaks and hold their peaks. It should look something like this:


(Update 1)

Please read carefully, because I received a handful of comments that the “breads” didn’t come out right from the first try. As you read through directions, you need to remember that the KEY to success to this recipe is you need to fluff up your egg whites to stiff peaks. It takes about 5 minutes using electric hand mixer. The one that I use is

Hamilton Beach

. If you look at different options try to get the one that looks like an iron. It has a storage compartment that serves as a storage for mixer’s tools and a stand.

  • Slowly fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and mix carefully and slowly – you don’t want to break the fluffiness of the egg whites and the overall mixture too much.
  • Do the following as quickly as possible or the mixture may start melting: Spoon the mixture into 10-12 even rounds onto lightly greased baking sheet, sprinkle w/ rosemary and your favorite spices and put it in the oven.
  • Bake for 17-20 minutes on the middle rack. Then broil (cook the top) for 1 minute and watch it until they become nice and golden brown. At this point make sure you watch them so they don’t burn
  • Remove from the oven and let cool and enjoy!


Storage

They can be stored in the container on your counter-top for 3 days. They can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 7 days and they are freezeable. If you decide to toast them, set the timer for 1 minute or the sides may burn.

Update 2

: I could not help but made a video “

How to make Cloud Bread

” in action! Especially many of you said that it didn’t come out right the first time or there were few problems with beating the egg whites. Watch it here or on

Youtube

and let me know what you think. Also be sure to read my update 1 (above) the key to make this recipe successful. Video disclosure: You will see that I add more stuff to it, like garlic powder, parm cheese, all seasoning and so one. No problem! Why lie? It’s delicious. I even added chia seeds, so it’s all good.


Update #3

. Many of you asked about the nutrition information. So I went ahead and calculated using the recipe calculator from SparkRecipes. The below is based on 4 main ingredients 3tbs cream cheese, 3 eggs, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 TBSP of Brown sugar. I usually get 10-12 even rounds (servings) As you can see one bread has less than 50 calories – 38,5 to be exact! As you can see it is lacking on the fiber. This is no problem and easy fix. You can add 1 Tsp of


Avocado Seed powder


for a boost of antioxidants, fiber and gut healing nutrients!

So here it goes:

Calories 38.5 per bread, Total Fat 2.9 g, Total Carbohydrate 1.0 g,

Dietary Fiber 0.0 g Sugars 0.8 g Protein 2.2 g

Vitamin A 3.0 %
