RECIPE FOR CLOUD BREAD
This recipe is from the web. I just found it, and I haven't tried it, yet. I am posting it here in the threads because so many of you have gluten intolerance or carb intolerance, and I want you to have access to it. This is a high protein bread, too. I will post the picture that comes with it, and her website is in the center of the photo. Enjoy!
THE BEST NO-CARB BREAD WITH ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS

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. And with chicken salad. Yummy!
Ridiculous Amount of Ingredients:
3 eggs, separated
3 Tablespoons cream cheese
¼ teaspoon baking powder (or cream of tartar)
Optional: 1 Tablespoon Honey or some natural sweetener, salt, garlic powder, rosemary, or whatever flavor you would like.
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.
Slowly fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and mix carefully, you don’t want to break the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.
Do this as quickly as possible or the mixture may start melting – Spoon the mixture into 10-12 even rounds onto lightly greased baking sheet, sprinkle with rosemary or 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!
