High Fat NO CARB Cloud Bread Recipe – Keto Cloud Bread!
Mmmmm, BREAD. Who doesn’t love bread?! Well, for anyone on a keto diet, folks living a low carb lifestyle, or if you have a gluten intolerance or sensitivity, your relationship with bread is probably complicated. Maybe, like me, you LOVE bread. But, even though its chewy refined grains are delicious, bread just doesn’t suit your body, lifestyle, or health goals. So, what to do? Say sayonara to toast and sandwiches for good, forever? Of course not! Now you can enjoy the hearty, bready goodness you love WITHOUT the carbs—thanks to my no carb cloud bread recipe!
So, how in the world can you take the carbs out of bread? It’s impossible—bread is made from carbohydrate-rich grains! But, not this no carb cloud bread recipe. It’s totally gluten free AND grain free! Forget the grains and yeast and mess of other ingredients. You only need 3 simple things to make my tasty keto cloud bread: eggs, full-fat cream cheese, and baking powder or cream of tartar! The eggs and the thick, dense cream cheese are both rich in dietary fats, making them the perfect building blocks for a low carb or keto bread recipe.
Those fats help hold the cloud bread together and the eggs fluff up so nicely! Then, the bit of baking powder or cream of tartar acts as a leavening agent, helping this yeast free and grain free bread to rise. These keto bread slices have more of a savory, salty flavor than an earthy, sweet taste like traditional bread. But, true to its name, this no carb cloud bread recipe has such a soft, fluffy, and airy texture—just like a cloud! Enjoy on its own, assemble some keto sandwiches, or use in your next low carb meal prep.
DISCLAIMER: This No Carb Cloud Bread Recipe has ALMOST Zero Carbs
Before any nitpicky haters out there have a riot, I have to get this out of the way—this no carb cloud bread recipe does contain a SMALL amount of carbs per serving. Each slice or round of keto cloud bread contains almost no carbs: fewer than 0.5 grams. Lots of people are looking for keto and low carb bread recipes with ‘no carbs,’ but it’d be tough (maybe actually impossible) to make a keto bread with NO carbs at all. Luckily, this no carb cloud bread recipe is as about as close to no carbs as you can get!
Most foods contain a variety of macronutrients in different amounts—some carbs, some fat, some protein. And, even traditionally high fat foods, like cream cheese and eggs, contain some carbohydrates. So, those few carbs sneak into this high fat low carb cloud bread, but there’s only a negligible amount per serving!
Now, it’s important to note that this no carb cloud bread recipe WOULD be considered ‘no carb’ by the FDA. And that’s because the FDA allows food manufacturers to put “0g carbs” or “fat free” on a label if an item has fewer than 0.5g of carbs or fat per serving. (Keep that in mind with items marked “trans fat free” or with “0g trans fats” on the label. They may still contain SOME trans fats—look for any “hydrogenated” oils listed in the ingredients list!)
No Carb Cloud Bread Recipe Tips
Make sure your cream cheese is softened and at room temperature. You don’t want any lumps!
Whip your egg whites up to stiff peaks for fluffy cloud bread instead of an egg pancake. A hand-mixer makes this easier, but you REALLY have to use some muscle if you’re whipping by hand!
SOFTLY stir egg yolk mixture into the egg whites, just until your new mixture has a light yellow color. You don’t want to over-mix or your bread will taste eggy!
I recommend making circular no carb cloud bread sandwich rounds! Since there’s no actual dough in this no carb cloud bread recipe, you can’t form and bake it into a loaf like traditional bread. Instead, dolloping your ‘batter’ onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and spread with a spoon to create circular pieces.
Or, you can also spread out your batter across your baking sheet and then slice it into square slices after baking. Some people prefer this method, and it’s also a great option if your bread batter is a bit runny and won’t hold a circle shape on your baking sheet!
Allow your keto cloud bread slices to cool to the touch, then store in a plastic bag on the countertop—at room temperature, not in the fridge. If you don’t store your slices in a sealed plastic bag, they’ll lose their light, fluffy texture and harden up!
Try, Try Again
If you try this no carb cloud bread recipe and it doesn’t work out the first time, that’s okay! Baking is a science, and low carb baked goods can be especially finicky. I know it may be frustrating, but I promise it’s worth giving a second try. Because, once you get it right, you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor: light, fluffy, keto cloud bread!
Chow down on low carb toast with breakfast, use it as low carb sandwich bread, maybe even make low carb French toast?! The possibilities are endless. And, at just 30 calories per piece, this no carb cloud bread recipe can’t be beat!
