This Magical ‘Cloud Bread’ Is Gluten-Free And Seriously Low-Carb
Want to be on a diet and still eat bread? Meet cloud bread.
Bread is obviously delicious, but it’s not always so great for your diet. If you’re looking for healthier way to make a sandwich, that’s where this recipe comes in. It happens to be low-carb and gluten-free, so it’s pretty much going to change your life.
Cloud bread is what folks are calling this incredible bread-like creation. All you need to make it is 3 egg yolks, cream cheese, a little honey and some baking powder to bring these puffy little “bread slices” to life. You can feel free to add rosemary or other spices to it to add flavor, if you’d like.
PureWow points out that cloud bread does have a slighty egg-y taste, so if you’re not making a breakfast sandwich or something where that taste might be ok, then you’ll definitely want to add some spices.
Once everything’s mixed together in a bowl, you’ll preheat the oven to 300 degrees and spoon the mixture out onto the baking sheet in circular shapes. You should be able to make 6 to 8 even rounds.
Then, bake for about 15 minutes and voila! You’ve just made puffy perfections that will easily become your favorite bread substitute. Now, you can eat “bread” without having to wreck your diet.
Use this as pizza dough, sandwich bread, a side dish with dinner—you name it!
Cloud bread also offers some helpful nourishment that traditional bread doesn’t:
“From a micronutrient perspective, cloud bread contains numerous nutrients not found in traditional bread, including vitamin A, vitamin D, phosphorus, choline, and selenium,” one registered dietitian told Women’s Health. “These nutrients support eyes, bones, metabolism, cognitive function, and immunity.”

There’s a slightly different version on Food.com, which suggests cottage cheese could be substituted for cream cheese, so you may want to give that one a try as well. Happy baking!
