Cloud Bread

Today I challenged myself to make "Cloud Bread".
Its not bread at all.

 

It's a bread alternative that's practically carb free, grain free, and high in Protein.
Perfect for those on a special diet. I'm not on a special diet other than Nutrisystem. I just wanted a healthy choice of bread for my flex meals. 

I have seen this recipe for cloud bread floating around all over social media and just had to give it a shot.

I have never whipped egg whites long enough for them to turn into a fluff texture. This is something I had to do to believe. Now I understand the whole meringue thing. **My mom makes the best!! 

 

  • Mix 3 egg whites and 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tarter until it peaks (About 5 minutes).
  • In another bowl, add 3 Tablespoons of cream cheese to the egg yolks and mix well. 

 

  • Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture half at a time. 
  • Last, place 1/4 cup drops of mix on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes in a 300 degree preheated oven.
Unfortunately mine did not turn out well. My 3 year old nephew came to visit as I was about to place the mix on the cookie sheet, so I paused a while to greet him, causing the clouds to deflate. Only about 3 or 4 out of 12 came out half way decent but not fluffy enough so I plan to attempt it again another day. 

 

I like the way they taste. I was afraid they would taste eggy but they didn't. They had a light and fragile texture like a croissant or cream puff with a light bready taste.

You have to let them cool completely before eating, It will hold a sandwich together. You can also lightly toast them and top with butter and jelly or any other topping for a delicious breakfast snack.
(be sure to watch the video below). 

Each cloud is approx 35 calories.
Perfect!

  1. I'd probably like them, but I sure ain't chef enough to make them yet. But I am trying. I do like cooking. I fixed cubed steak for supper and watched Sherry make the gravy (I still cannot do that yet, but Imma try one day. I like to watch/read your experiments.
    Love from back in Bell town.

  3. I made some last year and liked them a lot. We did the South Beach Diet several yrs ago and I missed bread sooo much...if I'd known about Cloud Bread, I could have done much better on the diet.

  6. Oh that looks quite good. I'll have to give it a try.
    Whipped eggs whites like that go into the cheese cake I make.
