Cloud Bread Recipe – aka Oopsie bread. A low-carb, high-protein, gluten-free substitute for bread, made with just 3 ingredients. Fluffy, light, delicious and perfect for sandwiches!
If you visit Pinterest as much as I do, you most likely have seen this magical Cloud Bread already. It’s a low-carb keto diet friendly substitute to white bread. I had to make it and see what the craze is all about.
The name makes a total sense: it’s light and fluffy, like a cloud. We were concerned about it holding up when used in sandwiches but it totally does and even works for burgers!
The Cloud Bread is made of eggs, flour, herbs, and xanthan gum. It’s high in protein, low in carbs and gluten-free since there is a small amount of flour in it. There are a few things you need to keep in mind while making this bread: whip the egg whites to stiff peaks AND gently fold in the flour and herb mixture in without deflating the whites. It really does not take much time and you can make a batch pretty quickly.
I did quite a bit of research on this recipe and a lot of recipes say to cool the bread at least one hour after baking. We found that the bread cools down within about 10 minutes of taking out of the oven and it’s great to use right away. In our opinion, there is no need to chill it in the fridge. It is soft and chewy and ready to assemble as a sandwich.
Gluten-free cloud bread
High in protein, easy to make and perfect as a bread replacement.
- 200ml egg whites
- 25g coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp pepper and salt
- 1/3 tsp curry powder
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Heat up the oven to 180 degrees.
Add the egg whites into a bowl and whisk them until you get a kind of fluffy mix. Then add the xanthan gum, baking powder and spices inside. Mix until stiff.
In another bowl add the flour and take 1 tbsp of the egg white mixture and add it to the bowl. Mix everything until you get a smooth flour mixture. Add 2 more spoons of the egg whites into the flour mixture and mix. Next, combine the flour mixture with the whole egg whites.
Take 1/3 of the mixture on to the baking sheet. Shape the mixture into "bun". Repeat the same with the rest of the mixture.
Put the buns to bake in the oven for 10 minutes. After they are baked leave them to cool down for 10 minutes.
