Learn all about it here as well.

What Is Cloud Bread?

Cloud Bread, also known as Oopsie Bread, is a low-carb, gluten-free and keto-friendly alternative to traditional bread. It’s made primarily from eggs and a dairy component such as cream cheese or Greek yogurt. The texture is light and fluffy, similar to a souffle, which is why it’s called “Cloud Bread.” Again, it’s popular among those following ketogenic, low-carb or gluten-free diets.

Ingredients and Basic Preparation

The basic ingredients for most Cloud Bread recipes include:

  • Eggs: Provide structure and protein.
  • Cream cheese or Greek yogurt: Adds creaminess and a slight tang.
  • Cream of tartar: Stabilizes the egg whites and helps achieve the fluffy texture.

Optional ingredients can include sweeteners, herbs, and spices for additional flavor.

Is Cloud Bread Healthier than Regular Bread?

Whether a Cloud Bread recipe is healthier than regular bread depends on your dietary goals and nutritional needs.

Nutritional Comparison

Carbohydrates: Cloud Bread is very low in carbs (1-2 grams per piece), while regular bread is higher in carbs (approximately 15-20 grams per slice), which can spike blood sugar levels.

Calories: Cloud Bread recipes are generally lower in calories due to its main ingredients being eggs and low-fat dairy. Calorie content in regular bread varies, but typically it is higher than Cloud Bread due to flour and other additives.

Protein: Cloud Bread has higher protein content from eggs, your usual bread has lower protein content unless it’s a high-protein variety.

Fats: Cloud Bread recipes contain fats from eggs and dairy, but you can choose low-fat options. Regular Bread typically contains less fat unless it’s made with added oils or butter.

Fiber: Cloud Bread is low in fiber, while regular bread is often higher in fiber, especially whole grain varieties.

Cloud Bread can be a healthier option for those needing to reduce carbohydrate intake, manage blood sugar levels, or avoid gluten. However, for those who require more fiber, vitamins and minerals in their diet, whole grain bread might be a better option.

Low-Fat Keto Cloud Bread Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) cream cheese or Greek yogurt (choose a low-fat option for even less fat content)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener (optional, such as erythritol or stevia)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional, for flavor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs (optional, for flavor)

Instructions

Preheat the Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 300°F (150°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Separate the Eggs

  • Carefully separate the egg whites from the yolks. Place the egg whites in a large mixing bowl and the yolks in a separate bowl.

Prepare the Egg Whites

  • Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. This usually takes about 3-5 minutes.

Prepare the Egg Yolks

  • Add the cream cheese or Greek yogurt to the egg yolks. Mix until smooth. If you’re using sweetener, salt, garlic powder or dried herbs, add them to the egg yolk mixture and stir until well combined.

Combine Mixtures

  • Gently fold the egg yolk mixture into the beaten egg whites. Be careful not to deflate the egg whites; use a spatula to fold the mixture until just combined.

Shape the Bread

  • Spoon the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, creating small mounds (about 6-8) depending on your preferred size of cloud bread rounds. Smooth the tops slightly with the back of the spoon.

Bake

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cloud bread is golden brown and firm to the touch.

Cool

  • Remove from the oven and allow the cloud bread to cool on a wire rack.

Serve

  • Enjoy this low-fat, keto-friendly cloud bread recipe as a sandwich bread substitute, or with your favorite toppings.

Tips

  • Storage: Cloud bread can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it for longer storage.
  • Reheating: To reheat, simply pop them in the toaster or warm them up in a low oven.
