Cloud Bread!

I was afraid on how this would turn out. No carb bread!?!? Yeah right!!! I am quite pleased with it! Here is the recipe. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully or they will not turn out right.


  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 3 Tbs. cottage cheese or cream cheese (I used cottage cheese)
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 packet artificial sweetener (I use my monk fruit extract. You can use splenda or 1/2 a tsp. of sugar)

  • Preheat the oven to 300.
  • Separate the eggs.
  • Mix together the egg yolks, cottage cheese, and sweetener until smooth. (This is where you add any kind of flavoring)
  • In another bowl add cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat until they are fluffy and form nice peaks.
  • Carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the whites keeping things fluffy. (I folded less than 10 times)
  • Spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Put dollops of the mixture into mounds that are the size you desire. They will not expand too much more than the size you make them.  One batch for me made 6 pieces. You can make them smaller for buns, sliders, or even sub for biscuits.
  • Bake on the middle rack for about 25 minutes until nice and golden brown. 

I made 2 batches. I added garlic powder to one, and maple flavoring and cinnamon to the other. Get creative! 

 Cindy's Tips for the Perfect Cloud Bread:
  • Make sure you understand what "nice peaks" look like. The whites should not move if you tip the bowl. At the same time don't OVER beat them. If you mess up, start again. This is a very inexpensive recipe.
  • If you are going to mix any flavors in, mix it into the yolk mixture, not the whites.
  • Loosen them off the pan as soon as they come out of the oven. Then move them to a cooling rack.
  • They will be very eggy if you eat them right out of the oven. Wrap 2 per paper towel and stick in a ziplock in the fridge overnight. In the morning they will have more of a bread like taste.
  • You can toast them but I recommend a toaster oven. It is doable in the upright toaster but they bend a little.
  • Any flavoring I would only add liquids or powders, no chunks. It has to stay light and fluffy.

REMEMBER: THIS ISN'T BREAD!!!! So give it a chance. If you are truly wanting to make a healthy change in your diet this is great when you need a bread substitute. We all get cravings! Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!!! :)
