When I first tried this cloud bread recipe, I had no idea what to expect. I’d never had cloud bread before, and I couldn’t imagine how it would taste. Bread made out of eggs and cream cheese?? It sounded crazy, and not all that tasty either.
I’m happy to tell you I was totally and completely wrong about this cloud bread. It’s delicious! It’s light and fluffy, with the perfect amount of chewiness to remind me of a regular flatbread. The flavor is also a lot like a flatbread or pita bread, tasty enough to eat plain but mild enough to go with just about any spread or filling.
Now that I’ve tried cloud bread I can’t get enough of it. My family loves it too, which says a lot about how good it tastes! They don’t always want to try new things and can be a little picky, so I figured it would take them a while to warm up to it. The first time I gave them some I wasn’t expecting anyone to want more, but they all did and I didn’t have enough to go around.
I must admit that this isn’t a recipe I came up with on my own. There are many different versions of cloud bread out there and I don’t know who the original person is to give them credit. I’ve played around with the recipe and came up with my favorite version of cloud bread.
After the recipe, I also have a list of a bunch of different ways you can use the cloud bread. The main way I use it is as bread for sandwiches, but there are tons of other things you can use it for – like a pizza crust, English muffins, garlic breadsticks – pretty much anything you would use regular bread for.
And not only is it super-easy to make, but it’s also really good. Plus I love that it’s gluten-free and has no carbs. My friend makes this all the time and calls it Revolution Bread, but it’s all the same basic recipe.
This cloud bread is a great choice for families eating gluten-free or low carb because it’s easy to make and the ingredients are very affordable. Some gluten-free baking recipes call for types of flour that aren’t very common or special gluten-free baking blends that can be pricey and hard to find.
I usually plan ahead and order those things online, but it’s nice to have a recipe I can make any time with regular grocery store ingredients. They don’t cost much so I can make plenty of bread for everyone and not worry about it.
I can find a way to use cloud bread at every meal. I like it topped like toast or as a wrap for scrambled eggs at breakfast, and it makes great sandwich bread at lunchtime. My family loves to make them into personal pizzas for a fun, easy dinner. I even eat them spread with cream cheese and topped with fresh berries. It’s my new favorite dessert!
Tips For Beating Egg Whites:
The trick to this recipe is having properly beaten egg whites. Egg whites are at stiff peak stage when they point straight up. If the peaks are pointy but don’t stand up straight, they need more beating.
Always start with cold egg whites. Take them out of the fridge, separate them and beat them immediately. Avoid letting them sit on the counter before you get around the making the bread. That’s another reason I like a metal bowl. They are colder than plastic.
It’s important not to over-beat egg whites because the protein that makes them stiff can collapse. Keep this from happening by checking often to see how the peaks are holding as you beat.
Traces of oil and cooking residue in the bowl can sometimes keep peaks from stiffening. Wiping the inside of the bowl with a cut lemon or a little lemon juice can keep this from being a problem. It’s an especially good step to take if you’re beating egg whites in a plastic bowl. Metal bowls are easier to keep free of trace oils and are a great choice for beating egg whites.
Here is what they should look like when you put them on your pan:
I usually end up getting the batter out of the scoop by hand and leveling them by hand. Because however, they are on the pan is the shape they will be in when they are cooked.
I like to cool mine on the rack for at least an hour to dry them out a bit and then they also aren’t as fragile. I usually wait several hours to eat them too. I feel like they aren’t are eggy this way and more sandwich-like.

Here are some answers to some common questions about cloud bread:
Is cloud bread carb-free?
This entire recipe only has 7.91 carbs, if you include the Splenda. If you divide that by 12 servings, it’s only .66 carbs per serving, so although you can’t call it carb-free, it is very low carb.
Can you freeze carb bread?
Yes. It freezes well. You will probably want to put it in individual bags or between layers of wax paper before you freeze it. To unthaw, just leave it at room temperature for a few minutes or defrost in the toaster for a few seconds. They will last in the freezer for a month or maybe even more.
How many calories are in carb bread?
This recipe only has 31 calories per serving. This will vary based on brands used.
How does cloud bread taste?
Well, it’s hard to describe. It doesn’t taste like bread. It doesn’t taste like eggs, although you can tell they are in it and it definitely doesn’t take like cream cheese. It tastes light, a little eggy, a little spongey. It don’t really think it tastes much at all, which is a good thing cause you basically have a blank canvas to add what you want to it. You can add sweet or savory ingredients to them. My daughter likes to put peanut butter on them.
Do you need to refrigerate cloud bread?
Yes. If you would like to reheat it, I think it’s best in the toaster oven or toaster, not the microwave.
How do you store Oopsie bread?
The fridge or freezer.

5-Ingredient Keto Cloud Bread Recipe
This is really simple to make but has tons of uses. I love that I can finally eat bread again on my low carb diet!
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 30 minutes
- Yield: 12 pieces 1x
- Category: Lunch, Side Dish
- Cuisine: Gluten-Free
- Position two racks in the middle of the oven. Heat to 350.
- Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper and cooking spray or Silpat liners. (They can leave a residue, even on the Silpat, so if you don’t like that, you will need to also grease your Silpat)
- Separate the egg whites and yolks into two mixing bowls.
- Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat stiff with an electric mixer. They should stiffen after 3-5 minutes of beating. Do not over-beat.
- Whisk the cream cheese, salt and Splenda if using into the yolks until smooth.
- Gently fold the yolk mixture into the whites. The batter should be fluffy.
- Use a regular-sized ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measure to spoon the batter onto the baking sheets. (A pretty good way to get the batter out of the cup and onto the baking sheet is with a small plastic spatula. That keeps the mess level down, and you can use the spatula to spread and shape them into discs.)
- Place 6 mounds of batter on each sheet so they have room to spread.
- Bake 20-22 minutes, switching racks halfway through.
- Let the bread cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.

1. 5-Ingredient Keto Cloud Bread – See Above
Eggs – Cream Cheese – Cream of Tartar – Real Salt

It used regular grocery ingredients and it was easy to make. I think it tastes like a fluffy, light bread. My whole family loves it. It reminds me of regular flatbread with the perfect amount of chewiness and it tastes a lot like pita bread or flatbread. It tastes good enough to eat plain but it’s also mild enough to put a filling or spread on it. It works great for sandwiches too.

3. Basic Oopsie Rolls – Tasteaholics
Eggs – Cream Cheese – Cream of Tartar – Real Salt
This is the same basic recipe as my cloud bread but they have some good ideas of how to change it up so you can use it for more meals. For that reason, you might want to check out their Pink Lemonade Cloud Cakes and their Eggs Benedict a la Oopsie. They both look and sound really good to me. I haven’t tried them yet but I’d really like to try both of them. Maybe someday soon. Is your life as busy as mine? Uh, it’s hard sometimes.
4. No Carb Cloud Bread Chips – Sparkles to Sprinkles
Egg Whites – Cheddar Cheese – Water – Season All
This is a basic cloud bread recipe made with cheddar cheese instead of cream cheese. They are also made with egg white instead of the whole egg. They have that crunchy melted cheese texture we all love so much. Then they are cut into chip size pieces so you can munch on them like chips. They will totally satisfy your salty chips craving not to mention your crunch and much cravings. They can help you not even realize you haven’t eaten chips for a while.
5. Low Carb Pizza Crust – I’m Bored Let’s Go
Eggs – Cream Cheese – Cream of Tartar – Garlic Powder – Chives – Oregano – Basil – Pizza Sauce – Mozzarella Cheese – Other toppings of your choice
This is a really easy quick way to make those individual pizzas you’ve been missing since you went on a Keto diet. All you do is make the regular cloud bread with some spices added. After it’s baked you spread on some pizza sauce and put your favorite pizza toppings on top. Then you put it back in the warm oven just long enough to melt the cheese and warm it all up. It’s way easier than making pizza dough and rolling it out and waiting for it to bake.
6. Garlic Cloud Breadsticks – 360 Family Nutrition
Eggs – Cream Cheese – Cream of Tartar – Honey – Real Salt – Italian Seasoning – Garlic Power – Butter – Parmesan Cheese
I LOVE breadsticks and I really miss them – A LOT! These are even easier to make than regular breadsticks. You just make cloud bread and add a few extra seasonings. After it’s baked you brush some butter and garlic powder on top and bake it for a few more minutes. After it’s baked you sprinkle on some real parmesan cheese and let it melt and you’re good to devour it up. I guess you should let it cool just a bit first.
7. Cloud Bread Hot Dog Buns – Step Away From the Carbs
Non-Stick Spray – Eggs – Cream Cheese – Real Salt – Cream of Tartar – Add Weiners – Catsup
What an ingenious idea. This is the regular cloud bread recipe but it’s baked in a special pan that makes it the shape of a hot dog bun. After it baked you just slice the bun down the middle and add the hot dog, the catsup and whatever else you eat on your hot dogs. I like mustard and relish. I really like the flavor of mustard and catsup mixed together. Is that weird?
8. Low Carb Cloud Bread with Chives & Pepper – Happy Body Formula
Eggs – Cream Cheese – Chives – Black Pepper – Real Salt – Apple Cider Vinegar – Coconut Oil
For this, they explain substitutions that you can use. For example, you can use apple cider vinegar in place of cream of tartar. They added some chopped chives or you could use other herbs of your choice. If you don’t want to use a dairy product you can replace the cream cheese with a cashew cream cheese. They say that ricotta or cottage cheese will also work in place of cream cheese.
If you add the chives or herbs it would be great used in place of bread for a sandwich with some ham and cheese in it. You could also add some honey to make it sweeter and make some sort of sweet roll out of it with jam or frosting on top. Knock yourself out and have a good time trying a lot of different ways to make this bread great.
9. Easy Gluten-Free Cloud Bread without Cream Cheese – Food By Mars
Eggs – Coconut Cream – Baking Powder
This is made with coconut cream in places of the cream cheese. This would work especially good for someone like my Mom that needs to eat Dairy-Free. If you are the kind of person that needs to follow an exact recipe, as my mother this is what you need for good dairy-free bread. Just buy a can of coconut milk and let it sit in the refrigerator until all the cream floats to the top. Then you can open it and scoop all the cream off the top. You could also buy a can of coconut cream. It’s just a little less expensive to buy coconut milk.
