Have you heard of Cloud Bread that’s carb, gluten and grain free? It only uses four ingredients and has only 35 calories! Say what??!!? Keep reading to find out about these little clouds of goodness!
So, naturally I had to try these little “breads” out and pass on the info to you! There are many recipes out there for Cloud Bread, and they all involve basically the same ingredients. This is Crockpot Empire’s version. I hope you enjoy it!
3 TBSP Cream Cheese
1/4 tsp of cream of tartar OR 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
3 drops liquid Stevia OR 1 TBSP honey
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
Preheat the oven to 300.
Lightly grease a cooking sheet or line with parchment paper.
In a small bowl and your mixing bowl, separate your yolks from your whites.
-Put the YOLKS in the small bowl
-Put the WHITES in the mixing bowl
-Be very careful not to get any yolks in the whites!!!
Mix cream cheese, sweetner and salt into the yolks with a whisk until smooth.
Using an electric mixer, beat your egg whites and cream of tartar (or baking powder) until stiff forms peak.
-This usually takes 1-2 minutes, but be careful not to over mix.
In the large mixing bowl, CAREFULLY and gently fold your yolk mixture into your white mixture.
Using a large spoon, place rounded spoonfulls onto your cookie sheet.
Cook for 30 minutes (or until the bread is nice and golden on top).
Cool on cutting board or large plate.
Immediately out of the oven they will be hard and somewhat crunchy.
Store overnight in a plastic bag for extra softness.
SO, these are pretty good and at only 35 calories and zero carbs I will definitely make them again. I made them using Stevia and cream of tartar. They do not have a lot of flavor, but they have a really cool texture and are light and fluffy.
I had them plain the first time and then I had them with a little Kerry Gold Dubliner Cheese Wedge. The third time, I tried them with eggs, which was my favorite way. I also made a sandwich for my husband with them and he thought it tasted great! Success!! Next time, I will make them with honey and baking powder. I’ll let you know if they taste any different and update the recipe!
These are best stored on the counter in a plastic bag for softness.
You can lightly toast them in the toaster or toaster oven on a low setting.
You can double the recipe and freeze them.
They can be used as sandwich bread and even hamburger buns!!!
Finally, have fun with this recipe. It is very versatile. You can add cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, garlic powder, or any dried (not fresh) herb or spices.
I hope you enjoy Cloud Bread! Try it and let me know your thoughts!! Have a great day!
