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 Ever Cloud Bread Recipe #lowcarb #glutenfree #grainfree

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

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.

    I have also made this with a bit of cinnamon and a touch of Stevia to have with coffee in the morning, replacing cinnamon toast.

    So has anyone tried to fry the mixture? Lol. It’s summer and I’d love a way out of using the oven Los Angeles midsummer haha I’ve contemplated my new toaster oven but it work take so many more batches than using the oven. Thankfully, fall is right around the corner.

    Is there a way to make this recipe so it can be done as a loaf of bread? My husband and I are trying to find a recipe that is simple to make a loaf of bread. By the way, these are delicious.

    Hi I don’t have a stand mixer or hand whisk. Can I either use an food blender to whip it up or do you think I could whisk this myself using a whisk. If using a whisk how long would this take and has anyone else made these without a stand mixer or hand whisk. 

    • Sommer Collierposted September 30, 2018 at 3:59 pm Reply

      Hi Samantha,

      If you don’t have something that can create a finely whipped meringue, it is a little tricky to make. I have heard of people making meringue in a food processor, but not a standard blender. Hope this helps!

  12. Chanelposted September 23, 2018 at 3:04 am Reply

    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!!

    I had a craving for bread and these certainly hit the spot!! So easy to make and the taste was absolutely delicious. Will be making these on a regular basis.

    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.

    In the cloud bread recipe it calls for “low fat” cream cheese, isn’t this contradicting what keto is about? I’m just asking because it’s confusing to me.
    Thank you,
    Connie Miles.

    • Sommer Collierposted September 18, 2018 at 1:08 pm Reply

      Hi Connie,

      Not all low-carbers are specifically Keto, but you can definitely use low fat or full fat cream cheese for this recipe. Either will work! :)

    Not a baker at all but found your recipe. I couldnt get my egg whites to peak just a frothy pile, my end “batter” looked like bubbles from a bath. I cooked it anyway abd was shocked to eat this wonderful bread afterwards! Absolutely my favorite keto recipe! Easy even with my “bubble batter”!! I made cheesy garlic bread with it- thank u so much for sharing this awesome recipe. Really helps us non-bakers stay with keto!

    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.

      Hi Summer,

      It sounds like you need to whip your meringue a little more firm. Happy Baking!

    Just made a batch up. Easy to put together recipe that was fun for this nonbaker. Need to try different cooking times to figure out which is best for my oven though as my first batch came out a little over done. Still tasty though! Will try some different flavors of spices also. Definite make again treat for this keto dieter!

    Thank you for the Cloud Bread recipe!  I recently tried it and have already made it several times.  If you haven’t tried making French Toast with it yet, you must.  I cannot taste the difference.  We use fruit or a homemade fruit compote rather than syrup. 

  30. Janetposted July 20, 2018 at 3:35 am Reply

    We made this bread last night. We used it as a bun for turkey burgers and it’s truly amazing!!! It was better than any bun or bread we have ever used for a burger.  Thanks so much for the recipe.

    My first attempt at Cloud Bread! Turned out really good, although next batch I think I’ll tone down the seasonings for a more versatile version. This will be great as “pizza”

  35. Israel Schleissposted July 7, 2018 at 8:52 pm Reply

    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. 

  36. Lisaposted June 25, 2018 at 8:12 pm Reply

    Game changer!   This is a great recipe!!!  I’m using it as bread and so happy!!  It has enough fat content to satiate and keep you going from one meal to the next.
