Gluten Free Cloud Bread

What is this crazy bread that keeps popping up on my Pinterest feed? Dubbed “the most amazing gluten free bread” my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to make it…just to see if the claims that it’s “delicious and really tastes like bread” are true. Plus, it has four ingredients which for a horrible baker like me is do-able. My thoughts? It’s delicious. It’s truly puffy like a cloud and it literally melts in your mouth. But, a bread replacement? Not so sure about that. Plus, from a health standpoint, it may be high in protein and free of sugar (unless you slather it with jam or nutella like some bloggers suggest), it high in cholesterol. Three pieces exceeds the daily recommendation for cholesterol.  Each serving has about 50 calories, 0 carbs, about 4g of protein and about 110mg of cholesterol. Besides that, it’s totally void of fiber so it’s not doing much for gut health. So, although it’s a fun alternative to your boring morning toast, this shouldn’t be an everyday thing.  

Check out the recipe below. It's actualy fun to make!

Gluten Free Cloud Bread

ingredients

3 eggs

3 tbsp cream cheese, room temp

1/4 tsp baking powder

optional: cinnamon, honey, pinch of salt...I was thinking chopped chives?

 

directions

Preheat oven to 300F

Separate yolks from whites. In the bowl with the yolks, add the cream cheese and blend until smooth. Add any optional ingredients.

In the bowl with the whiltes, add the baking powder and whisk until white peaks form. (I used my stand mixer with the whisk attachment. You should have stiff glossy peaks, like a meringue.)

Fold the whites into the yolks. Then scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet and form into patties.

Bake for 18-20 minutes in the middle rack.  Then, set broiler to low-med heat. Move baking sheet up to top rack and broil for a about 30 seconds or until gold brown. Watch this because they could burn!!!

 

Let cool before eating. I tried them out of the oven and they were still too soft.

 

Let me know how yours turns out!!! Would love to hear from you!!!
