Easy Cloud Bread


I am have recently become sensitive to gluten. I've searched everywhere for a tasty bread product that is not only healthy but also my stomach will agree with. I had to look no further than my own fridge & pantry! 

Light, fluffy, and gluten free... like a cloud! It's a great substitute for 'regular' bread and is low in carbs. Although it's not firm enough to replace bread in a regular sandwich, I like to top one 'slice' with peanut butter and bananas, toast it with jam or with my favorite meat and filling.

What you'll need:
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar (optional in my experience)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cream of tarter (or baking soda)
Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar together in a bowl until stiff peaks form.
  3. Mix egg yolks, cream cheese, and sugar together in a separate bowl using a wooden spoon and then mixing with a hand-held egg beater until mixture is very smooth and has no visible cream cheese. Gently fold egg whites into cream cheese mixture, taking care not to deflate the egg whites.
  4. Carefully scoop mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, forming 5 to 6 "buns".
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cloud bread is lightly browned, about 30 minutes.
