Cloud bread or Oopsies (Low carb, high protein bread)

I had never heard of it before, but it is a huge hype at the moment: cloud bread. Airy bread-like bakes made with egg and cottage cheese. Therefore, they hardly contain any carbs, are high in protein and have very little calories. That is very interesting of course 😉

I was curious and I tried the cloud bread. It is very easy to make and next to the eggs and cottage cheese you only need a bit of baking powder. The name makes sense because you get very light airy bread that looks a bit like clouds. They don’t have that much flavor when you eat them plain, but you can flavor them yourself with spices or sweeteners, like a bit of maple syrup.

The bread actually reminds me most of rice cakes. Not their taste or structure, but they have the same size and amount of calories. A cloud bread has about 28 calories. Just as rice cakes they don’t have that much flavor by themselves, but you can top them with anything you like and then they taste good. Because they have fewer carbs than rice cakes ánd more proteins I think it is a great replacement!

In the original recipe, they also add one tablespoon of a sweetener like maple syrup or sugar. I left this out because I want to decide the flavor of my cloud bread by what I put on it and not make them sweet by adding sugar. If you like you can add a tablespoon of maple syrup to the recipe.

What do you need (for 10 pieces of cloud bread)

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cottage cheese (75 g)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

How to make the cloud bread

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius/300 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Split the eggs.
  3. Whisk the egg whites together with the baking powder until it forms peaks. You can best do this with an electrical mixer.
  4. In another bowl whisk the cottage cheese and the egg yolks.
  5. Carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg white mixture using a spatula. Add the egg yolk mixture bit by bit, because the mixture has to stay airy.
  6. Layer a baking tray with baking parchment and use a spoon to put 10 heaps of the mixture on the baking tray. Leave a bit of space between each cloud bread.
  7. Bake the cloud breads in the oven for about 20 minutes. Watch them closely after 15 minutes, because your oven might be baking a bit faster.

Enjoy!

I made a delicious burger with my first cloud bread. You can find it here!
