The Best Cloud Bread Recipe

The Best Cloud Bread Recipe

Yield: 10 pieces

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 ounces low fat cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. If you have a convection oven, set on convect. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Separate the egg whites and egg yolks. Place the whites in a stand mixer with a whip attachment. Add the cream of tartar and beat on high until the froth turns into firm meringue peaks. Move to a separate bowl.
  3. Place the cream cheese in the empty stand mixing bowl. Beat on high to soften. Then add the egg yolks one at a time to incorporate. Scrape the bowl and beat until the mixture is completely smooth. Then beat in the Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic powder.
  4. Gently fold the firm meringue into the yolk mixture. Try to deflate the meringue as little as possible, so the mixture is still firm and foamy. Spoon 1/4 cup portions of the foam onto the baking sheets and spread into even 4 inch circles, 3/4 inch high. Make sure to leave space around each circle.
  5. Bake on convect for 15-18 minutes, or in a conventional oven for up to 30 minutes. The bread should be golden on the outside and firm. The center should not jiggle when shaken. Cool for several minutes on the baking sheets, then move and serve!
NOTE: 1) The Best Cloud Bread Recipe can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days. However the texture is best if eaten within 12 hours of baking. 2) Go easy on the garlic powder the first time you make it. I like adding 1/2 teaspoon, but that might be a little much for some palates.

    Just wondering, do you think you can use no fat cream cheese in this recipe? Or even the part yogurt blend cream cheese that is offered at my local grocery store?
    Thank you!

          Hi Sarah!

          You can use an equal amount of drained cottage cheese, however I like the flavor better with cream cheese. I’ve never tried it with yogurt. If you decide to use yogurt, please report back. I’d love to hear how it turns out! :)

      Hi Rhetta,

      We don’t usually provide nutritional facts, because so many of the tools available vary greatly in their calculations. However, according to the My Fitness Pal app, two slices contains: 3g fat grams, 38 calories, 1g carbs, and 2g protein.

      Hope this helps!

    I’ve seen this so much but never made it. I think you’ve given me a reason to finally give it a go!

    Very interesting, I’ve seen this before but never looked into what it actually is. Sounds like a great idea!

    How long do these keep after baking — what is the recommended way to store? Could they be frozen? Thank you:)


    • Sommer — January 12th, 2017 @ 12:11 pm

      Store them in a zip bag and either place in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or you can freeze them. However they taste best fresh.
