Have You Heard About Cloud Bread?

Let me first start by saying that back when I had given up gluten, I NEVER thought that I could find a bread that would make me feel like it was okay not to have the real thing. Even with a severe gluten intolerance, bread was the one thing I could not give up for life. I just craved it too much. But every GF bread out there just tasted like cardboard, and I could not stand them.

Now, as I am looking into a more paleo-esque lifestyle, I can’t help but desire a bread alternative that will not make me feel like my stomach is eating itself. So when I heard about Cloud Bread, a four-ingredient bread that is low carb, gluten free and is actually high in protein? Well… I just had to try it for myself. And it. Is. Amazing.

In your first bowl with the egg yolks. You want to mix in your cream cheese until it is really smooth. I suggest a hand mixer or stand mixer.

Add in your honey as well and mix in.

In the bowl with egg whites add your 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tarter.

It takes about 20 minutes to bake. Keep an eye on it. It depends how big you spoon your mixture. You want them to be golden brown. Once they start to brown a little on top. You can put the broil on low for a minute or so. (Tip)- Do not let your eyes off them or you will sharing a pinterest fail. This happened with half of the batch. One minute got away from me. Let cool and use a spatula and enjoy.

How gorgeous are these?? They are wonderful to eat all on their own, but you can also treat them as a bread or bun. You can toast them in the toaster and add butter or jam. You can keep them on the counter for up to 3 days or in the fridge for a week! They also freeze beautifully.

This looks amazing and I plan to make it soon. However, to be low carb, we'll have to use some other sweetener besides honey. Thanks for the great recipes.
