Low Carb Cloud Bread


Cloud Bread is high in protein and extremely low in carbs, making it the perfect sandwich bread for those on a low carb, gluten free, or grain free diet.

Each “slice” is baked separately and has a soufflé-like texture when it first comes out of the oven. After a couple hours, the texture becomes more bread like, so you won’t even miss traditional wheat bread.

Is cloud bread gluten free?

Yes! Cloud bread is gluten-free, low carb, and grain free. It’s safe for just about any diet!

The Best Cloud Bread Recipe

I’ve been pretty impressed with cloud bread. I wish I knew who invented it, so I could give them credit, and possibly and little bow of respect. I’ve heard it originally came into existence during the Atkins era.

However, I believe this is The Best Cloud Bread Recipe because of the seasoning. When cloud bread is unseasoned, or even flavored with sugar and sweet spices as I’ve seen in some recipes, it tastes more like a dessert than bread.

If you are looking for a great low carb sandwich bread, The Best Cloud Bread Recipe in today’s post is the winner.

How to Make Cloud Bread

Here are  few tips for making cloud bread:

  • When making The Best Cloud Bread Recipe, make sure to whip the egg whites and cream of tartar first. It needs to be extremely firm for the bread to bake successfully. The cream of tartar acts as a stabilizer.
  • Then beat the cream cheese, egg yolks, and seasoning separately. This mixture needs to be perfectly smooth.
  • Fold the two egg mixtures together, spoon the mixture onto baking sheets, and bake.

How long do you bake cloud bread?

Bake Cloud Bread for 15-18 minutes in a convection oven, or for about 30 minutes in a conventional oven.

Do you need to refrigerate Cloud Bread?

Yes, cloud bread should be stored in the refrigerator. After baking, it should last for a few days if stored properly.

  • 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!

Recipe Notes

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!

      Definitely! You can use an kind of cream cheese in this recipe. :)

        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 Sue,

        It sounds like your whipped eggs whites weren’t firm enough before you folded them in with the yolk mixture. You need an extremely firm meringue, in order for it to hold its shape.

      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!

      • Lindaposted December 3, 2017 at 10:33 pm

        According to the chart on P. 2 it’s 38 calories per slice.

      • Lindaposted December 3, 2017 at 10:34 pm

        You might want to go back and update that chart. It actually states that the recipe yields 10 pieces and serving size is 10 pieces.

    • Sommerposted January 12, 2017 at 12:11 pm Reply

      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.

  11. Beverleyposted January 22, 2017 at 3:52 pm Reply

    I made these (as per the recipe) and they tasted great but were pretty flat ? What did I do wrong??

    • Sommerposted January 22, 2017 at 9:37 pm Reply

      Hi Beverley,

      Was your mixer still foamy when you placed it on the baking sheets? You might have over mixed it. Another thought is the cloud bread pieces stay about the same size and height as you spread them on the baking sheets. Maybe you spread them too thin?

      • Caitlinposted March 13, 2017 at 12:40 am

        I think the same thing happened to me. Tasty but thinned out. They had similar color to your recipe photos but they were thin and mishapen.  Any ideas how long it takes to get the right whipped consistency when using an electric hand mixer? I spent about 15 mins and it didn’t seem fluffy enough.

  12. Laura S.posted January 24, 2017 at 9:20 pm Reply

    I recall back in the early days of my low carbing (almost 2 decades ago) Cleochatra (username) came up with this recipe. Although, she used to say don’t get the yolk and cheese mixture totally smooth. A few yrs back she was still writing low carb articles and recipes for Examiner…don’t know if she still is.

    This ‘bread’ is also very good as toast.

    • Hannaposted July 21, 2017 at 2:29 am Reply

      Your eggs must be room temperature for whipping. That is how they whip up to a larger volume.

    Have you tried a hand blender with whisk attached?  I made a bread the other day that called for the whites to be separated and whipped, even with the hand blender it took 10 minutes for soft peaks.

      As long as your hand mixer is powerful enough to whip meringue, it should work. :)

      No, unfortunately I don’t believe it would hold its shape. Maybe you could fudge it with raw cottage cheese?

    • Samanthaposted June 19, 2017 at 8:37 pm Reply

      It is possible to overbeat egg whites and then they weep. It’s important to get them to the stiff peaks but not beat too long. Also, when adding the egg whites to the yolk mix, first fold in about a third of the whites to sorta get the mixture lightened up and ready for the remaining whites. Then fold in the rest of the whites. Hopefully this helps!

    • Ashleyposted March 29, 2017 at 2:13 am Reply

      It’s tartaric acid, a chemical compound found in wine barrels. It’s a white powder and sold in the spice aisle of the grocery store.
      Its role in this recipe is to stabilize the egg whites so they have more loft. I’ve heard that you can replace it with an equal amount of lemon juice or white vinegar, but with the caution that it may not turn out the same, so do a trial. Another option is to just leave it out and make sure your egg whites are very thoroughly whipped, but don’t go so far that they tighten up and get weepy.

    Just finished making these. Substituted 4 T Greek Yogurt for cheese.
    Note that when you start to fold in the egg whites, start with a small amount and work into the egg yolk mixture, then add another third, until done, this will help your mixture stay fluffier.
    Had to adjust the temp on my small convection/toaster oven down to 275 degrees and turned a quarter every couple minutes to have them brown evenly. Thanks for the great recipe!!

      Hi Marian,

      When we make them, they are usually gone within a few days. If it were me, I would make a double/triple batch and freeze them in single layers so they don’t stick together. Then I’d put them all in a big freezer bag and keep them frozen until needed. They thaw in 10-15 minutes at room temperature. :)

I read baking powder can be used in place of the cream of tartar sometimes, but I’m not a kitchen officiando, so I thought I should ask someone that probably knows for sure. I don’t. And TIA. :)

      Hi Ever,

      In some recipes you can substitute other ingredients for cream of tartar, but I wouldn’t try it here. It’s needed for stabilization. It’s nice to have it on hand for other places you want to reinforce a delicate recipe.

      Hi Yvonne,

      So sorry to hear that! The cloud bread does not rise; it stays exactly the same thickness you spread it on the baking sheets. However, it should not shrink flat either. It sounds like your egg whites were not whipped firm enough. Or when you mixed the egg whites with the cream cheese mixture, you over-mixed the ingredients and deflated the batter. I hope you give it another try. It’s really good!

      If you stir in the egg yellows too much it’ll turn liquid. Try to just fold in as gently as you can and stir as little as you can. I use a rubber spatula and add 1/3 more yellow egg mixture after each fold in and smear- lol.
      Also, I use room temp eggs and cream cheese. Mine came out perfectly puffy.

    Worked Perfectly! Other recipes fell flat for me. Most important thing: use eggs at room temp (large size-not XL or Jumbo). I do cream cheese at room temp too.. but not sure if it makes a difference, but I do it anyway. And GENTLY fold in egg yellows with as minimal stirring as you can. I use convection heat, but don’t think it matters. 350F for 16 min for mine, beautiful browned color.

    Love this bread, I have made sandwiches or just had a slice with my egg. Yum. But I would like to know how many carbs are in a piece?

  70. Jacklynposted January 14, 2018 at 5:14 pm Reply

    I just tried to make this twice, and the cream or tater and egg yikes weren’t even remotely fluffy. What did I do wrong?

    • Sommerposted January 18, 2018 at 9:53 am Reply

      Hi Jacklyn,

      It sound like you might have had a little egg yolk drip into your whites when you broke the eggs. The fat from the yolks makes it near impossible to beat whites into stiff meringue. You’ve got to be really careful when you separate the eggs that the yolk are intact. PS – Any remanence of fat in your mixing bowl will do the same thing. Use a dry clean bowl. Good luck!

    Can you freeze this bread?

      Hi Carole,

      Absolutely, I freezes best if you flash-fresh it first in a single layer, then place the frozen piece in a zip bag or storage container. :)

  74. Deeposted January 20, 2018 at 5:41 pm Reply

    I just made these for the first time, and the recipe was very easy to follow. I found that when I folded the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, the egg yolk mixture would seep down to the bottom of the bowl, and I feared mixing the whites any more.  Any recommendations to keep it blended well?
    These taste eggy on their own, and I would season them differently, but they have a great texture, and lovely presentation.

    How do you make them so perfectly round? Are you using a mold of some type?

    • Sommerposted February 5, 2018 at 10:12 pm Reply

      Hi Gretchen,

      No, I just spoon them on the baking sheet in little round mounds and spread them in a circular motion with a spatula. :)

    Love this recipe, nice savory flavor. I wish I could post a picture, they came out perfect!

  77. Cherylposted January 27, 2018 at 12:08 pm Reply

    So I made these yesterday, they came out perfect. This morning I toasted them. Go to a lower setting on your toaster because they brown very quickly. I topped them with a fried organic egg and a little avocado. Scrumpcious! Now I am thinking about making eggs benedict with these. My absolute fav breakfast!

  78. Sueposted January 28, 2018 at 12:21 pm Reply

    I made these and I have to say they are delicious. They didn’t come out as big as I would have liked, but that was my fault. By far the best I have had. Going to try to make a flatbread with it as well by just spreading out on the pan,

    Hi, I’m allergic to dairy and some ingredients in mayo (a commom substitute for cream cheese). I’ve scoured the web and still come back to this. What can I use instead of cream cheese or mayo? Will creamy rice milk work?

  80. Courtneyposted January 29, 2018 at 12:30 pm Reply

    So, I just did this. The taste is phenomenal! I did, however have a really hard time with getting the “clouds” to stay put on the baking sheet. they got runny. I ended up spreading the whole thing thinly across the sheet and baking it a little shorter time (20 min). Pizza cutter to divvy it up, and I had a really nice flatbread to sop up some curry! I just beat the whites until peaks formed. I don’t think I did it for long enough. Are they supposed to be super stiff peaks? Any Tips for this newbie?

    • Sommerposted February 5, 2018 at 9:59 pm Reply

      Hi Courtney,

      Yes, the meringue does need to be very stiff. You might also have over-mixed it a bit when you added the yolk mixture. Give it another try, I bet they will come out perfect! :)

    Turned out great! I used the Daiya dairy free cream cheese to make it Paleo and it still worked beautifully!

    Thank you for this great recipe. However,  It’s extremely frustrating that you do not have the ingredients written out and that you have to watch the video to get the list of ingredients. As well you do not start the video off by telling what temperature to preheat the oven to.

      We recently moved and my mixer was damaged. I actually made these successfully with a whisk. Not the easiest method, but if you have the arm strength, it’s possible.

  86. Julieposted February 18, 2018 at 7:47 pm Reply

    I’m really confused. This says ketogenic but i thought you use full fat on Keto, this recipe calls for reduced fat cream cheese.

      Hi Julie!

      You can use any kind of cream cheese you like. :)

    • Micheleposted July 8, 2018 at 4:52 pm Reply

      You can use full fat cream cheese. I eat Keto and I did.  Even so, it doesn’t provide a significant amount of fat.  The fact that it is a bread that is so low in carbs is what makes it appealing for me.

    Fabulous. My first attempt at cloud bread, made tonight for our hamburgers. My husband and I were not disappointed.
    I’ve been bread, cracker, wheat and any type of flour product free since 1-23-18, eating a keto lifestyle. I tasted a plain sweet cloud bread last year, a friend made, but this recipe is far superior. Hers tasted very eggy.
    I used full fat cream cheese, Good Season copy cat seasoning mix for the Italian seasoning and jumbo eggs. My effort resulted in 12 buns. I used parchment paper and a disappointing new, GE convection oven. Thank you for a lifestyle keeper recipe. Hard to enter comments with all the pop ups.

    This worked beautifully! I followed directions, and went just a bit easier on the garlic as suggested. I used regular cream cheese rather than low fat as I am following the keto way of eating. The video was helpful to watch as well. If I had one complaint, it may have been a bit on the salty side. It’s hard for me to judge as I rarely add salt lately.

      It sounds like the thermostat of your oven is off a bit. This is very common. I would purchase a small oven thermometer to hang off a rack, in order to get a more accurate reading.

      Hi Kiely,

      Sorry that happened! It sounds like your meringue deflated. It needs to be whipped to very firm peaks in order to hold its shape.

    What we’re basically making is soufflé. So yes the whites must be whipped to stiff peaks and great care should be taken when folding the whites into the yolk mixture. Some small lumps are okay. I’m thinking of tinkering with this by incorporating some old soufflé recipe ideas.

    I’ve been looking at these Cloud Bread recipes for a least a year. This one sounded the most interesting. They turned out great, but I forgot to take a picture! There was not too much garlic but were definitely too salty for me. Will cut back on the salt next time. We were delighted with the texture and ate them with chicken salad.

    Not ‘low fat’ cream cheese. It’s full of additives you don’t want to eat, and this recipe was designed to intentionally be high fat. Who else would want to look up / eat this besides a low carb/keto dieter? Plus, one will run into texture issues with low fat cream cheese, because it contains softeners. For two tablespoons, it’s so much better-tasting with full fat brick cream cheese.

    I made this twice and I have to say the first time I was unimpressed BUT turns out, it was my fault! I wanted to share in case anyone else made this mistake. 

    I’m not a very experienced baker and I didn’t realize there was a difference between wax paper and parchment paper! (Haha). When I made it with the max paper it was impossible to separate and I found out that wax paper melts! (Oops!). 

    It was absolutely amazing when I used parchment paper! I found that using the eggs and cream cheese and room temp helped. I doubled the recipe and I’m going to try to use it as pizza dough! I also made little circles and after they were completely baked I put butter and cheese on them and through them in the oven for a few mins. Absolutely delicious! 

    Thanks so much for the easy recipe!!
